Vintage Handknits Pattern Giveaway

In my last post I talked about a little giveaway! 

I am lucky enough to have been sent this great NEW pattern book by Artesano, it features new look photography and some fabulous designs from, Kyoko Nakayoshi of Cotton and Cloud fame,  Charlotte Walford,  Rita Taylor and Sue Hanmore who's wonderful Viola Sweater is on the front cover.  
The pattern book is called 'Vintage Handknits' and the feel of the book is simple vintage style.  All the garments are knitted in the luxurious Artesano Superfine Alpaca 4ply and DK. The model, styling and photography is spot on. Shot indoors at what looks like a lovely location, I believe the background lends itself perfectly to the garments and atmosphere.  
So if you would like to receive a free copy I have ONE up for grabs. This will be sent to the person who's name in randomly pulled out of hat shaped container! All you have to do is comment let me know if you are interested, offer will close and be drawn on 5th May 2012.  Good luck and yes I will mail to the US.
Here is a little teaser of images to 'whet your appetite', see the link to Ravelry too for more information on Artesano and their fabulous yarns and pattern books.
