I'm thrilled to be apart of the blog tour celebrating the release of Kelbourne Woolens: Volume 1, a book that includes many of our favorite patterns by Kate and Courtney, all in The Fibre Company's yarns, of course.

I have a soft spot in my heart for The Fibre Company as it was my first job in the yarn world. When the company was first starting out they operated a mini-mill on the edge of Munjoy Hill in Portland--just a few blocks from my apartment. I spent many hours on the carding machine or making skeins, while dreaming of all the things I'd like to knit in their yarns.

Well, years later, I'm still imaging what I would like to make in their yarns! Here is the sweater Hawthorn, in Road to China light, and an outfit I could easily (wish to) pair with it.

And guess what? You can enter a giveaway for a copy of the book by leaving a comment below. I'll draw a winner at random on Monday!

The winner is Natalie:
This book will have GREAT success! The patterns are lovely and so wearable, and the photography is very sweet.
