I can't tell you guys how happy I am to be able to write this post!
Amy is a good friend of mine and I have been watching her work her tush off for a few years now. All so that you can knit sweaters that look and make you feel great. She's put her heart and soul into this project and it shows.
From the original tank top photoshoot and subsequent blog tutorials, to teaching umpteen thousand Fit to Flatter classes, to planning and shopping the book idea around, and then to I-dont-know-how-many months of straight design and knitting these 20 patterns every waking moment, she has left no stone unturned and has managed to compile an amazing collection of tips and tricks and thoughts to make your knitting all it can be.
You did hear me say 20 patterns, right?
Each one designed with Amy's exquisite attention to detail, employing different elements of Amy's philosophy on what looks good and how to make it work for your body.
She's included classic, wearable shapes, and added easy to follow commentary throughout on modifications, techniques, and styles that you can adapt to these sweaters - or any others you may be working on - so they work best for your shape.
And if you want to see for yourself, I've got a copy to give away.

Since it's MAY and the sun is finally shining, how about a springy drink while you wait to see if you're the winner?
This was Maya's idea and it was amazing.
10-12 fresh strawberries
zest of one lime, and juice of half the lime
4-5 sprigs of cilantro chopped up
10-12 oz of vanilla yogurt
splash of milk
Blend and pour.
Serve with sliced strawberry and lime on rim.
We are still experimenting with our favorite booze to add. So far gin works, tequila is amazing, and rum is the next thing to try.
