Charm Gloves Knit Along

 Simply Charming!

I just adore Louisa Harding's Charm gloves.  They are unapologetically feminine and oh, so pretty.  

Earlier this year while on holiday at the Monterey coast I was able to try on a shop sample of  Louisa's Charm gloves at Monarch Knitting.  The moment I tried them on, I knew I would be knitting several pairs for myself as well as for holiday gifts. 

 Be Charming!

Well, it turns out, I'm not the only Louisa Harding admirer ready to knit the Charm gloves.  Ann, Knitting Fever's social media gal, is ready to start the Charm gloves, too. When Ann heard that I was going to knit them as my next project she said:  "Well if two's company then three is a knit along."  So thanks to Knitting Fever, there's now a Charm gloves knit along!

Three Graces

Charm Gloves Knit Along
June 1 through June 30, 2013

For the knit along you will need Louisa's Three Graces pattern book, 2 skeins of Grace Wool & Silk or Grace Hand Dyed and 1 skein of Grace Hand Beaded depending on which version you knit.

For official details please visit the Charm Knit Along thread in the  Louisa Harding Ravelry Group.  To keep "in the loop" you can join the conversation in the Ravelry group and on Knitting Fever's Facebook page.  

And there's prizes!  If you complete your Charm gloves and post a photo of your completed project (by June 30th) in Louisa Harding's Ravelry group you will be entered into a prize drawing.  You must use a Louisa Harding yarn to be eligible for the drawing.  The prizes will be awarded by Louisa's distributors:  Knitting Fever in the USA, Designer Yarns in the UK and Diamond Yarns of Canada so this is an international knit along!

Three Graces Book Giveaway!

If you would like to join the knit along and need the Three Graces book here's your chance to win it! The wonderful folks at Knitting Fever are letting me give three books away!

So take a look at the Three Graces book at Knitting Fever along with the Louisa Harding Grace yarn range. Leave a comment here on my post by midnight, Sunday, June 2, 2013 of which Louisa Harding yarns and colors you want to knit your gloves in.  Your comment will enter you into the book giveaway.

Three randomly selected people will each receive the Three Graces book.  US residents only.  Void where prohibited.   One comment per person.  Please leave your name along with an email or Ravelry name in your comment for me to contact you if you win.  I will also post the winners in a follow-up blog post. 

 Good luck!
