Leah Sutton *Giveaway*





















Designer Leah Sutton has sent in some loveliness to Phat Fiber for January all the way from the UK! When her box arrived, I saw the knit bangle bracelet and almost tried it on.. my fingers got through the opening but I pulled back- I swear! I have a thing for chunky jewelry, and this bangle is FAB- soft, cottony, and would go with most of anything in my wardrobe! Leah should change her company name to be: Really Elegant Finely Crafted Embellishments and beautiful full color patterns that you will really be glad you bought. On second thought, Leah Sutton sounds just fine.
Leah presents her work with class and style as you can tell from her knitted embellishment collection on CD. I'm eager for you to get these in your boxes and knit them up! So pretty! Her website is beautiful too. I found her "free knotting tutorial" very educational- I honestly have never "knotted" anything and it looks like fun! Leah explains that "Knotting" is the modern term for Macrame- a term in desperate need of a makeover. Does anyone else shudder at the word Macrame? Shudder no more, Leah Sutton has transformed it into something very elegant and appealing!
How delicious are her little girl knits?! I want these patterns! Again, the styles look very clean and wearable- you could easily dress them up or pair with jeans. I keep wanting to compare her to Debbie Bliss. The way the patterns let the color and texture of the yarn shine through really does remind me of D.B.- Who disagrees with me?! Modern, clean- but with a elements of the unexpected like the pocket ends to the scarf pattern she offers.

Okay, I know you are all salivating by now! Go download a pattern from Leah Sutton's site!
There are only so many of the wonderful samples she sent in for January ;)
So, with much enthusiasm, I will be giving away a sample of choice to a lucky commenter! Remember blog entries get double points! Help spread the word about this wonderful new designer- visit her site and post something nice about it in the comments section below! A randomly drawn entry will win a choice of a knitted button, the knitted bangle, or one of Leah Sutton's pattern Cd's!!!!

I thought I had solved my gift giving problem for the ladies in our family. I looked at the pics on the blog and thought I was set. Then I went to the site. Now I'm in a pickle again on deciding.
