Enter giveaway to win copy of 'French Girl Knits'

In her latest book, “French Girl Knits Accessories,” Kristeen Griffin-Grimes, who lives in Seattle Washington, reveals an exciting collection of “modern designs for a beautiful life.”

Reflecting on French style in her book, she writes, “It is profoundly easy to glamorize another culture — and I’ve done that aplenty with my French musings — but I’ve also come to realize that there are reasons why the French have developed such a well-defined “look.” We can learn from them to make our lives (and the garments we knit) a more authentic reflection of our personal style.”

Featured among the 16 projects in her inspiring book are hats, leg warmers, lace shrugs, socks, shawls, a hooded cowl and lace mitts.

Good Luck and Happy Knitting!!!
