I never win anything, so when I won a copy of The Scrumptious Collection Volume 3 on Lien‘s blog, I was utterly speechless for a whole five seconds and then did a happy dance around the room. My copy arrived on Saturday, so I’ve had a happy weekend browsing the beautiful patterns and forgetting that I am rubbish at finishing sweaters and mentally casting on about five projects at once.
Hamble Sweater by Lien Ngo
This is easily my favourite; not just because it’s Lien’s design and I won her competition. I love the patterned yoke (like Lauriel) and all that garter stitch would be nice and soothing to knit. Though I might make it longer in the body and more a-line so that it doesn’t stop at the widest point on my body!
I also love:
Iwerne Cardigan by Kyoko Nakayoshi
Rosemorran Cardigan by Belinda Boaden
and more likely to get finished before 2015:
Lerryn Mittens by Rachel Coopey
Rock Lea by Judy Furlong
Definitely a book worth looking at if you’re in the market for some new and lovely patterns.
