"Merry Doomsday" Giveaway

I do have two FO's this week, but, first, a giveaway.

I have one digital (pdf) copy of Alex Tinsley's about to be released Doomsday Knits: Projects for the Apocalypse and After to give away.

I love all things dystopic, but these knitting patterns are completely modern and wearable well before things get to the point of zombies in the streets and the total breakdown of civilization. Patterns include both garments and accessories, and many designers are represented. I've got my eye on Forager (vest and cowl) and, since I am determined to figure out color work in 2014, Circuit (mittens).

Chakra Powered
Foraging for Yarn?

The book is published by the estimable Cooperative Press which specializes in independent designers with fresh ideas. 

Just leave a comment and a week from now I'll fire up the random number generator and choose one person to receive the pdf (either through ravelry or via email.)

As for my Finished Objects, one is a gift, and the other was purely selfish knitting for me because no one is going to knit anything for me in this or any other year.

Tamatori Cowl (mine, mine, mine)
 I know it seems like it's all cowls all the time around here, but I promise more variety for 2014. 

The Tamatori cowl knit up quickly in chunky yarn, and the stitch pattern is reversible.

The No-Purl cowl was also a quick knit in an aran weight.

Both were knit in yarns from Quince & Co. which is one of my very favorite yarn companies.

Leave a comment that indicates some way to get in touch with you to be in the pool for the giveaway. I'll leave the comments open until December 26.  Visit Tami's Amis FO Friday to see what else is entered in the finished column this week.
