Laura Nelkin's Adorn Anew

AdornCovers-final_400.2512
My good friend Laura Nelkin has created a wonderful pattern collection featuring knitted, beaded jewelry. When you subscribe to the Adorn Anew collection you will receive one new pattern at the beginning of each month from May thru December 2012. Since it's already August, you will get the first four beautiful patterns when you purchase the collection. I made one of them, the Mudra Cuff. Laura was kind enough to give me a kit complete with yarn, beads, and clasp when I saw her at TNNA in June. (My not-so-great photo is below, followed my Laura's much better photo, showing three cuffs worn together.)

Sofie will probably take this one to college with her when she leaves this coming weekend.

The sweet Mudra Cuff took almost no time at all to knit. Laura's instructions are clear and easy to follow.  Being the sort of knitter who's always storing wee bits of leftover yarn, one of my favorite things about these patterns is that they are a great way to use up those bits. Another great thing about Adorn Anew - imagine the fun you'll have combining yarn and beads. Now I'm eyeing the gorgeous August selection, Trio. Hmm, wonder what pretty little ball of yarn I'll use for this one. . .

Laura has kindly offered to send one lucky winner a kit for the Mudra Cuff in the color of their choice. To enter to win the cuff comment on this post by midnight (NYC time) on Monday, August 27th. (Eep! My girls will be off to college by then.) I'll use a random number generator to select the winner.

What a lovely cuff! I love it!

Thanks for having this giveaway!
I have just "discovered" Laura's amazing patterns and kits and have a certain someone in mind to make this cuff for, if I am lucky enough to win.

Wow they are gorge! What a great prize. Me please!

I love the cuff! My first bead knitting was her Butin kit, a thoroughly enjoyable and gorgeous project. This looks fun too.

I love Laura's patterns. I'm taking her Knitting with Beads Craftsy class. Would love to win this kit!

I love the cuff! Laura's designed are simply splendid. I enjoy working them just about as much as using/learning new techniques to make them. :)

I saw the kits in person recently and they really are adorable!

I'm a new fan of Laura: I knitted her Butin necklace (which I love) and I'm participating in her new Mystery Shawl KAL (I just finished my TTL Mystery shawl, so that's a perfect timing!). I really appreciate her view on mixing knitting and beads...

Love these designs! All best to your daughters.

That cuff is adorable! Color combinations are endless.

Wow! I actually really love your picture of the single Mudra Cuff--it really shows how it looks on your wrist.

And I will second all the comments about Laura's patterns--they are well-written, make awesome final projects and lots of fun!!!

What a fun way to use leftover yarn! These would make great gifts, too!

I love Laura's patterns! Just finished the Butrin collar and love it. The cuff is beautiful!

These look amazing!!

So beautiful! Thanks to Laura, I am very into knitting with beads lately!

Beautiful. I think I'll head out to find that ASAP. In the meantime the cuff project would be a great place to start. Love it!

what an interesting pattern.

The cuffs look great! Thanks for the chance to win.

I've been wanting to knit with beads but have been a little nervous about getting it right... Beautiful designs!

very cute - something I could make that my 15 year old girl might actually wear!

I absolutely love Laura's designs - beads and yarn - what could be more fun?!

Laura's designs are great. I would love to try this one!

What a beautiful cuff!
Thanks for the giveaway.

Laura's patterns are great and her CRAFTSY class is wonderful! Keeping my fingers crossed to win!

Beautiful patterns! I have her first adorn collection, and it's great fun to knit with beads :-) Would love to win a kit!
