There are so many great knitting books published each year, full of inspiring patterns I wish I could make, but I have to admit to myself that I'm never going to knit all that I wish I could and so I need to pass some of these great books on to others.
That's the way it is with this week's giveaway: Knitting Architecture by Tanis Gray. It includes 20 patterns for tops, wraps, mittens and more, the "and more" including a cool colorwork bag and a skirt inspired by a hotel in Dubai designed to look like a ship's sail. (See all the patterns on Ravelry.)
The name of this book, as you might imagine by now, is literal. The designs actually are inspired by architecture from around the world, and she writes a little bit about the building behind the design of each pattern, which adds to the fun.
I'd love to knit the color-blocked Bauhuas cardigan, designed by Anne Weaver; the brightly colored Byzantine Pullover by Tanis Lavallee; Grace Anna Farrow's bright-striped zig-zag Popmidou Wrap; or the super-airy Tower of Piza Shift from Veera Välimäki. Maybe you will knit one of these, instead, if you're the winner.
For a chance to win this book, leave a comment on this post before the end of the day Sunday, Aug. 14. I'd love to know if you have a favorite building, or a city that includes your favorite architecture (mine is probably Chicago).
Thanks for commenting, visiting and sharing, and good luck!
