Hitch Blog Tour

Almost 2 years ago, I saw Stephannie Tallent's call for submissions for a book she was curating with Cooperative Press.  It was intriguing, based on the films of Alfred Hitchcock and using a color palette of black, white, shades of grey, and splashes of crimson.  I loved working with Stephannie when she was with Knitcircus, so I couldn't pass it up.

I designed the Alicia Tam and Mitts, based on Ingrid Bergman in Notorious.  I actually used this image as a starting point for my sketch.

The lovely folks at Brooklyn Tweed provided the yarn, Loft, and I feel like the end result is just as current and wearable now as it was then.

 It was amazing opportunity to be included with all the talented designers that worked on Hitch.  There are 29 designs by Rebecca Blair, Glenna C., Kristen Hanley Cardozo, Brenda Castiel, Rachel Coopey, Jennette Cross, Anna Dalvi, Nina Machlin Dayton, Elizabeth Green Musselman, Becky Herrick, Elanor King, Triona Murphy, Carolyn Noyes, Luise O’Neill, Heather Ordover, Anne Podlesak, Stefanie Pollmeier, Jaala Spiro, Nadya Stallings, Jill Bigelow Suttell, Stephannie Tallent, Katherine Vaughan, Christina Wall, Christina Werge, Linda Wilgus, and Karin Wilmoth.

You can order Hitch from Cooperative Press or on Ravelry for $16.95. Or you can win a digital copy here, by leaving a comment.  The winner will be chosen by random number generator.  Be sure to leave your email or Ravelry ID so you can receive your prize.
