Sneak peek of new design

I just got the photos back for my newest independent design from my lovely model, Jess, and her photographer and husband, Vitaly Fomin. More details to follow, but for now, here's a sneak peek.

To celebrate my newest design, I'm going to hold a contest. Comment and I'll draw a name out of a hat. Prize will be two of my independent designs, winner's choice. The possibilities are Versailles Shell, Varese Hoodie, Kowloon Cardigan, Victoria, Garbo, Broderie, and the new design. The contest will be open from now to when I release the design which I anticipate will be in 3 weeks.

Edited to add: If you'd like to be included in the drawing, please leave your email in your comment putting -AT- and -DOT- in the appropriate places to avoid spam trollers.

this looks fantastic! I was actually just browsing your site when your latest post came in via my RSS feed. Since you are the reigning hoodie queen - can I make a request? I would love to see a plain (stockinette) hoodie pullover design in a sock yarn or lace yarn. Similar to a Whisper cardigan but a hoodie instead.

Keep those designs coming!
