Review: Artistic Differences & A Giveaway

We're excited to review the new book from our friend and talented designer Talitha Kuomi. You may know Talitha from the Fiber Factor, and we also recently shared a free pattern from Talitha on the Knitter's Pride blog, the Lind hat. Talitha has teamed up with Classic Elite to create this lovely book of ten patterns entitled, Artistic Differences.

Slive is a great versatile pattern for fingerless gloves worked in stockinette stitch. You can choose to add contrast edgings or even stripe the yarn. Today only the pattern is 10% off on Ravelry, just add to your cart and you'll automatically get the discounted price.

The sample is worked in Classic Elite MoutainTop Vail, a soft fingering weight yarn that's made of  baby alpaca and bamboo. This alpaca gives it that lovely halo and the bamboo gives it a silky sheen. This pattern could also be great for striping leftover bits of sock yarns!



Giveaway
This month we're giving away a Nova Platina DPN Set and a PDF copy of the Slive pattern courtesy of Classic Elite. To enter the giveaway leave a comment on this post telling us which of these patterns from Talitha is your favorite in the Artistic Difference book. Don't forget to leave us your Ravelry ID so we can contact you if you're the lucky winner! We'll choose one lucky winner on Friday, January 30th.
