Freebies

I love freebies, especially when it has to do with knitting. Remember how I posted on 4/3 about the awesome spring designs in the latest issue of Verena Knitting? Well, since I was subscribed to their newsletter, they sent me a survey geared towards their American readers. As a special thanks for completing the survey, they sent me a coupon code for a free digital issue of Verena Knitting. Naturally, I chose the latest spring issue and I'm in love with this pattern...


Also, this one totally looks like an Anthropologie sweater. Reading through the pattern, I realized that the leaves are embroidered onto the sweater. Interesting, but I can't even really sew let alone embroider.


It's a treat looking at these gorgeous patterns, but I don't think I'll have the time to actually knit one. At least not until I have learned how to seam. I have yet to knit a sweater that is knit in pieces. Baby steps, I suppose.
If you like the SweaterBabe patterns (e.g. Talia from Spring 2008 Knitty), you might be interested in the 2nd freebie. While I was browsing the 20 Spot forum on Ravelry the other night, I came upon an offer for a free pattern from the SweaterBabe. All you have to do is go to her website, www.sweaterbabe.com, look at her directory of patterns, and send an email to wwmag@sweaterbabe.com with the following info.

I requested Lush and Lacy Cardigan since I've been lusting over that for over a year now, and sure enough I received the pattern in about 2 days!
Now I just need to find the perfect yarn...
