AudKnits Turns 3 with a Giveaway

October 31

The AudKnits blog began three years ago! To celebrate, I give you links to my favorite posts in case you missed them, followed by a giveaway.

My all-time favorite post was the one about the goat who decided to live at our house for a while. He was a dear soul, and I loved having him around! Here is the story behind “Portraits of a Goat.”

Based on visits, people seem to enjoy posts about Jared Flood‘s designs. His Koolhaas Hat and Girasole are the most popular among the projects I’ve made.

Some of the most gratifying posts trace my design efforts, from my first published design – the Smock Top Sweater kindly published in Knotions, to the thrill of having my Eleanor Cowl included in Knitty. I appreciate your enthusiasm and kind words as I’ve come out with new patterns!

Can you believe that there are now 500 Eleanor Cowls on Ravelry?! There are so many beautiful different colors and yarns – I love seeing all the variations.

As a thank you to my readers, and to celebrate the blog’s birthday, I’m going to give away sets of delightful care cards made by the talented Becky Morrette of Sunday Drive Designs. I love having an easy way to let people know how to care for the gifts I knit for them. These cards have common care terms that you can check off, as well as room to write the fiber content and other instruction. They’re cute and practical – what a great combination! – and I’m going to give THREE sets away to celebrate THREE years of AudKnits!

    Happy Triple Anniversary!

    I think I’ve made more Koolhaas than I’ve made Clapotis but being able to use Malabrigo on the hats…that’s a big plus. :-)

    Congrats on your Eleanor Cowl being such a hit. Your designs are beautiful!!

    Thank you, my dear Laurie-friend! Yes, you certainly have made your share of Koolhaas! I love seeing all your variations on Ravelry. Thanks for complimenting my designs; you knowthey were helped along by your stitch markers. They make me so happy, I can’t wait to get knitting! :-)

    Wow, the cards look great. :D They’d definitely come in handy too, what with the times when I make notes for a knit thing for someone else and forget something crucial.

    Congratulations, Audrey! Such beautiful patterns you’ve designed.

    (And missed your goat the first time around, so thanks for the recap).

  27. On November 16th, 2011 at 10:16 am KarinW Says:

    I love the story and pics about the goat. I’d have a hard time parting with her. What a great idea the note cards are, and so cute, too. Congratulations!

  28. On November 16th, 2011 at 11:22 am AudKnits Says:

    It was indeed difficult saying goodbye to Goat. I miss him to this day! I’m glad you liked the story – thank you.

  29. On November 18th, 2011 at 7:22 pm Kristin Says:

    What an awesome idea! I knit scarves for my children’s teachers each year (for 4 years now), and I’ve forgotten to include care information each time!

  30. On November 20th, 2011 at 8:31 am Adrienne Garner Says:

    Audrey, it is such a pleasure to follow your blog not just because of your beautiful designs, but also because of the great photography. These cards are a great way to add a more personal touch to the knitted item.

  31. On November 20th, 2011 at 10:16 am AudKnits Says:

    Thanks for the kind words, Adrienne. You’ve always been an important part of my knitting obsession – I’m so glad we have that in common!
