Vintage Modern Knits Blog Tour! {+ a chance to win!}

As many of you probably already know, the blog-o-sphere is hosting a lovely little tour of our book, Vintage Modern Knits.  It began on Feb 5th with a interview on the WEBS Ready Set Knit Podcast.  The podcast was our first "live" interview, and we were quite nervous, but think it went pretty well! If you missed the podcast when it first went up, you can listen to it here.


Erin Cardigan designed by Kate. Knit out of Savannah in Chambray.

The tour then traveled to Wendy Bernard's Knit + Tonic blog all the way in Sunny California on the 8th, then back east on the 9th to our friend Cecily's Winged Knits blog (complete with an interview and a contest - hurry over, there is still time to win!), and then the following day was featured on Miranda's lovely Narrating Life blog, where she, too, is holding a giveaway that is open until the 16th. (This is about where we really started to blush. You like us! You really like us!)


Brigid Jacket designed by Courtney.  Knit out of Terra in Olive Leaf.

Yesterday, our little book was back on the east coast of Maine visiting with Hannah Fettig of Knitbot, with, again, a contest (come on people! We really want to give you some free books!) and some funny photographs we took of the samples right before sending them to Interweave over a year ago.


Baltic Mittens designed by Kate. Knit out of Canopy Fingering in Blue Quandons, Palm Bud, Fern + Orchid.

After a break this weekend, the tour starts up again on Monday at Melissa's blog, Knitting School Dropout. It doesn't end there, though, and continues on to some fabulous stops. For a full schedule of the remaining tour, check it out below!

In conjunction with the blog tour, we thought it would be neat to host a stop on our blog and instead of interviewing ourselves, we want to have YOU be the interviewers.  Now is your chance to ask any questions you may have about the book, the design process, our color choices, pretty much anything you can think of.  Leave a comment on this post from now until 12 midnight EST Friday February 18th with your question (one per person please, so make it good!) and on the 23rd at the end of the tour we will post a compilation of all of the questions and our answers.  Bonus points for those who ask a question we have never heard before!


Innsbruck Mittens + Legwarmers designed by Kate (legwarmers) + Courtney (mittens). Knit out of Canopy Worsted in Palm Bud and Canopy Fingering in Plum, Chiclet Tree + Yerba Mate.

As an added bonus, once the comments are closed on the 18th, we will pick at random a question and the winner will receive a signed copy of Vintage Modern Knits and enough yarn to complete a few projects from the book!  Make sure your name + email is included when posting the comment (it will be hidden from the public, no worries) so we can identify your question + and contact you if you are the winner.

We can't wait to see what questions you come up with!

*Comments are now closed! Thank so much to everyone who asked us a question. We will post our answers (and announce the winner!) next week!*
