Out and About with Spud & Chloë

July 6, 2010

Edited to add on July 6, 2010: I heard from the winner and her prizes have been shipped! The giveaway is now officially over… until the next one:)

Hi Spud & Chloë Friends,

I’ll start today with some business. I still haven’t heard from the One Year Giveaway winner from last week. Click here to see who won. I have emailed the winner but it keeps bouncing back to me. I will wait for a couple more days and then I’ll have to select a new winner. The contest needs to finish up! I’ll keep you posted on that news.

On to some fun happenings out and about in the Spud & Chloë knitting world. I love scoping out what people are making with Spud & Chloë yarns on Ravelry. Sometimes people send me photos, sometimes people send me information about patterns, and sometimes I stumble across a project or pattern that I love. That is the case in the patterns in today’s post.

Raelynne is a buddy of mine on Ravelry in the Friends of Spud & Chloë group (come join us!) and she made the blue Giraffe from Itty-Bitty Toys out of Sweater in Lake and Splash. I just love the Giraffe done in the shades of blue. I have seen a couple of them out there.

I can tell these two are going to be good buds for a long time.

I have linked this adorable baby dress made up in Sweater another time but it is so sweet that it warrants another go ’round. The dress is called Scallop Edge Dress and is designed by Erin Harper. Erin did a great job creating this sweet project. You can find all of the pattern information here!

It gets coooold in Michigan! That’s why Sarah Lady designed these mitts. Actually, she was also inspired by the Fine colorway and Lake Michigan. You only need one skein of Fine to make these. What a perfect little pattern. Michigan Mitts is a free pattern and can be found by clicking here.

I have had several cowls floating around but haven’t whipped them up yet. I stumbled on this cowl made up in Outer and thought you might like it, too. Lorene Voskinarian made the Overpass Cowl and you can find the free pattern information right here.

Aren’t these cute socks? Love the stripes and hearts and Fine Tutu and Sassafras combination! Click here for the free pattern information from Devon Clemont. Devon has information for adult and kid sized socks.

This final project is the Outer Baby Blanket by Leslie Scanlon. Isn’t that the best baby nest ever? Perfect photo. I think this looks like the squishiest blanket around. The stitch and cable detail is wonderful!

Have a good day out and about where ever you are! Please let me know if you see a fun Spud & Chloë pattern that I might miss. I’d love to see and hear all about it.
