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!
