Knit Red: Stitching for Women’s Heart Health is part of an effort to raise money for the Heart Truth Campaign, which seeks to raise awareness about heart disease in women. I am thrilled to be a part of this wonderful effort spearheaded by Laura Zander of Jimmy Beans Wool.
Not only does Knit Red contribute to this cause, it also contains some wonderful patterns by some pretty wonderful designers. I’m very proud of my design, the Silk and Mohair Cape, which is knit out of Rhapsody Glitter Light and Silk Mohair. A portion of sales of this yarn and color, Rhapsody Glitter Light 244, will be donated toward the Heart Truth campaign.
Aside from my design, there is another pattern in the book that uses Artyarns! It was designed by our European distributor, and the owner of Maschenkunst in Cologne, Germany – Daniela Johannsenova. The Graphic Tunic is knit out of Rhapsody Glitter Light and Beaded Mohair and Sequins. It uses 1 skein each of Rhapsody Light in 4 colors (H11, 244, 300, and 295) and 2 skeins of Beaded Mohair & Sequins in 300 Silver.
The book will be released this month, but we are having a book giveaway for one lucky reader! If you would like to win a copy of this book, please leave a comment below about one thing you do to keep your heart healthy. The winner will be chosen on Wednesday, June 20th.
