Well summer is drawing to a close and so has the Lucinda Knit Along we were hosting along with our friends at Fancy Tiger and Kelbourne Woolens. I'm completely in love with my Lucinda, Carrie of Madder designed such a beautiful and wearable sweater and paired with this sweater it's a dream. If you guys haven't knit with Acadia, it's got such a good drape and depth of color. I'm ready for fall temps right now please!
Since we've wrapped up our Lucindas and the #fancykelbournestudioKAL has drawn to a close it's time to announce our winners! It was so hard to choose because everyone had such stellar photos and sweaters.
Best Vacation Photo:
We loved the tones of this beach pic by Megan Macdonald of saltairarts. I wish I was sitting there right now!
Not only did Ericka of ebbandsew knit hers with stripes, she also made quite a few adjustments including knitting the sweater seamed, flipping the wrong side to the right, adjusting the neckline and most amazing to me ALL of her stripes match. Seriously she is made of magic!
Best FO Shot:
This category was maybe the hardest because everyone's sweaters turned out so beautifully. In the end and after much deliberation we chose Denise. Not only is this FO shot super cute, but can you believe this is her first sweater? I'm so proud we inspired someone to knit their first sweater for this knit-along! Way to go Denise, hope this is the first of many! I'm so glad we started this knit along on a whim, it was such a fun way to knit through summer.
I'm a big advocate for the summer sweater because come fall you've got yourself something new and the Lucinda was the perfect sweater for the job!
