I have an awesome review & giveaway for you today lovelies! I recently was able to check out Weekend Wraps by Cecily Glowik MacDonald and Melissa LaBarre (ISBN: 978-1-63250-278-0, Interweave F+W).

Weekend Wraps is a beautifully photographed book featuring 18 knit designs to wrap yourself in.  Perfect for fall with autumn shades and knit in worsted weight and heavier yarn, each project is perfect for a cool day.

Whether you're a seasoned knitting veteran or just starting out, there are a variety of patterns for every skill level.  Especially helpful is the abbreviations section and glossary, featuring illustrated techniques to help you along in your work.  Love a particular yarn shown in the book?  Check out the "Yarn Sources" section to get the perfect skein for your project too!

I was pleasantly surprised to see other things in the book like cardigans, shrugs, and cowls like this pretty one called "Warm Cider Cowl"  Sounds so cozy right?

Equally fabulous is the "Wander Shrug" in a gorgeous cinnamon color.  Lots of texture makes for a cozy project!
