Classic Designs for the Modern Knitter

Spud and Chloe at the Farm Giveaway!

***** The Winner is Carol Haines.  Congratulation! ***** I am excited to be hosting the 2nd day of Susan B. Anderson's blog tour as she promotes her new book Spud and Chloe at the Farm!




I've always been a fan of Susan's fun pattern collections, which include Itty-Bitty Nursery and Itty-Bitty Toys.  She has a gift for designing three dimensional knits, and at the Farm is a testimony to that.





Look at what you can knit!







There's a mother hen and chicks, piglets, a farm dog, brown cow, barn cat and a barn and picket fence.  And of course Spud and Chloe themselves - isn't Spud adorable?






Susan has a pattern for a lamb in Itty Bitty Toys which I knit for Jonah.  He loves him!

Spud is even rounder and squishier, I may have to add him to the collection.

If you've never knit anything like this before, don't be intimidated.  Susan's instructions are always very clear and uncomplicated.  Just follow along and before you know it you're holding an adorable little knitted animal!












Susan's books appeal to children with their bright photographs of fun knitted toys and babies and children wearing adorable knitwear.  At the Farm takes it one step further - there's a 9 page Spud and Chloe cartoon at the end of the book!

Thanks to Artisan Books, I am happy to be able to offer a copy of Spud and Chloe at the Farm as a giveaway!  Leave a comment below to be entered in the contest, and I will choose a winner at random on Monday, April 18.

Congratulations, Susan!  What a fun book.
