Loop-D-Loop Lace: A Review & Giveaway!

Simply put: Teva Durham is an artist with yarn.

In her latest book Loop-D-Loop Lace, Teva shows this mastery by taking vintage lace patterns and transforming them into modern day wear. With fall just around the corner this is the perfect book to spark your knitting mojo.

Loop-d-loop Lace Shawl

This gorgeous collection is the epotime of what you would expect from the team of Teva Durham, Melanie Falick and Liana Allday. A book that is more coffee table art than your run of the mill knit book.

The book offers 30 well written patterns from scarves and shawls to pullovers, cardigans and even a gorgeous dress.

I had the wonderful opportunity to see Teva work behind the scenes as a sample knitter for this book. The way she would take a panel, drape it along a dress form and "see" what it could be. It was amazing to watch such pure creativity. I helped knit the gorgeous lavender lace pullover in Tahki Stacey Charles Superior.

Not gonna lie, seeing my name in the acknolowedgements was pretty special.

Name in print!

From the Lace Leaf Cravat (below) to gorgeous heirlooms like the above Shetland Shawl Dress, the collection includes patterns that will please any knitter be they a novice or an experienced pro.

A non-knitting adventure: Stella & Dot

Since my move to SF I've tried to answer the question of "what are you doing now?" I would love to tell people that I'm knitting and blogging and that's paying ALL the bills but that's just not possible (yet!). So as I began looking for a new job I knew I wanted it to be something fun but not tied to an office or a school.  

Enter my friend Jen and  Stella & Dot.

At first, I wasn't sure if it was for me but after learning more about the company and seeing all the jewelry I really fell in love with it. It would be a great way to meet people & I could set my own schedule (a.k.a more knitting time!) The bonus: the jewelry is gorgeous!

I will be launching my new business this Thursday, June 30th and I would love it if you would help me kick it off!

Here's How:
