Review & Giveaway #2

coverpage

This new 92 page ebook, Ghosts: historiographies, cultural manifestations, and the knits they’ve inspired is by Teresa Gregorio (aka CanaryKnits). This eBook collection includes 11 patterns as well as researched information about “ghosts” throughout the ages. Teresa is selling this timely (for Halloween!) ebook for $18 Canadian (but one of you can win a copy, so keep reading!) or pick which pattern you want to knit for approximately $5.50 – 6.50 Canadian. I’ve never been really into ghosts or gothic things, but I’ve found myself intrigued by this collection and the information Teresa has put in it. The patterns in the ebook are all inspired by the tales included.

lovethis

By far, my fave pattern in this collection is Progression. I like that it’s done in a worsted weight and might just be the next shawl I cast on for.

hat

Calavera Catrina, was another pattern that caught my eye, I love the design on it.

utukku

Utukku, is very cute, and I love the ribbon use on it. Very unique & different.

You can check the whole collection out on Ravelry or visit the CanaryKnits website.
