Help, please? New (and potentially FREE) pattern, too!

So, my lovely and amazing sister Emily is a talented seamstress, and she was chosen as a finalist in a Pattern Anthology sewing competition. I’m so proud of her!! The prize is a $2,500 Baby Lock serger.


The winner will be determined on a basis of 75% judges scores and 25% online voting.  Could I ask you to please vote for “Emily’s Adora”?  (Be sure to hit the “Vote” button after you choose her piece.)  It will just take a few seconds.  The winner will be announced on Dec. 7.

Emily takes the pictures for my knitting patterns, and she is so generous with her talents and time (even if she thinks it’s funny to take snaps when I’m making weird contortions with my face):


For the knitters, you may recognize this as the bridge where my Emmeline Wrap, Pollina Cowl and Patrizia Cowl patterns were shown.

And speaking of the Patrizia Cowl — hey, I released it this week!  Instructions are given for both one and two 100g skeins of worsted.  And if you’re doing the Indie GAL, the one-skein version (above – ignore the goofy face) would make a quick and pretty gift knit!

But how about this:  EVERY PERSON WHO VOTES FOR MY SIS, AND LEAVES A COMMENT HERE TELLING ME THEY DID SO, WILL RECEIVE A FREE COPY OF THE  PATRIZIA COWL PATTERN.  (Be sure to let me know your Ravelry name or email.)  Offer good until end of day on Sunday, December 6.

Now for better Patrizia shots:
