Today two pallets landed on Alana's doorstep, which means Coastal Knits will soon be in your hands. (In mine, too!) Pre-orders are still open until midnight Friday, so if you're interested in the book, the yarn giveaway, or signings and trunk shows, I highly recommend you go here.

I can finally break my (blog) silence on what has been a fantastic summer design project for two popular knit designers. Presenting Coastal Knits: A Collaboration between Friends on Opposite Shores by Alana Dakos of Never Not Knitting and Hannah Fettig of Knitbot. Ten fresh designs perfect for fall and winter. A book for gift-giving. An early holiday present to yourself.
The book will be out October 15 but it's now available for pre-order. To get you started, you'll receive 2 patterns, Rustling Leaves Beret by Alana and Rocky Coast Cardigan by Hannah. You'll also get coupons to use toward Never Not Knitting and Knitbot patterns. You'll get a snazzy "shopping list" bookmark you can take with you to your lys. Lastly, you'll be entered into a drawing for yarn for these projects!
You may be familiar with these two. Alana designed the bestselling Cedar Leaf Shawlette, while Hannah created the ever-popular Featherweight Cardigan. There is so much to be said about Alana and Hannah, the creative process, and the book itself, but I'll save that for another post or two. For now, go pre-order the book, join the Coastal Knits Ravelry group, cross your fingers for the giveaway, and start knitting!
Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!
The yarn colors remind me of St Léger: grey, ecru, brown. Limestone. Mmmmmmmmmmmm. I must be dreaming!
