Kelbourne Woolens Volume 1 Blog Tour + Giveaway

We love Kelbourne Woolens, the purveyors of beautiful Fibre Co. yarns and patterns. We were thrilled to be a part of their blog tour for their newly released book, Kelbourne Woolens: Volume 1. This gorgeously shot and styled book is a collection of some of their most popular designs of the past 5 years and we love them all!


We were asked to style a design and we choose the "Winthrop" cardigan.


This cardigan, designed by Kate Osbourn, is knit in Organik or Road to China Worsted and features a lovely slip stitch pattern at the hems and neckline. We used Polyvore for our styling - so fun!


I choose to style my Winthrop for a spring-time bike ride adventure. A flirty floral tank and cream oxford heels are the perfect combo!


Amber styled a picnic outfit complete with blanket and bag large enough for dishware and treats! Her cardigan looks adorable over a sleeveless dress and orange tights.

Comment on this blog post by Thursday, March 7th at 5pm (MST) and we will choose one lucky winner to receive a signed copy of the Kelbourne Woolens: Volume 1! In order to win please include in your comment:

  1. Your email address (important!)
  2. Tell us how you would style your Winthrop cardigan
Winner will be chosen at random and announced on Friday, March 8th. Best of luck!

Be sure to check out Never Not Knitting tomorrow for the next stop of the blog tour and another chance to win!

I love wearing jeans...so I would style it with jeans, cute knee high boots and a colorful scarf (knitted of course!). Thanks for the opportunity.

I live in jeans, so with jeans it would be. Although I have a super cute canvas skirt at the front of my closet patiently waiting for warmer weather. That would be cute too. theharts at windstream dot net

I have a nice wool skirt I barely wear - I can just imagine this with a thin tshirt underneath and boots!

I would wear this cardigan on a beautiful spring day. Pair it with a cute little spring floral dress I made. Riding my bike around city park with my little Pomchi in my front basket of course. :)

I would wear it also with jeans and a t shirt underneath. Perfect for the layered look.

In my mind, I would wear this with a black sheath and heels, a skinny belt cinched around the cardigan at my waist and a beautiful silk scarf around my neck. In reality, I'd wear it with straight-legged jeans, my motorcycle boots and a lace-edged tank top.

They make some of my favorite yarn! But the patters are always wonderful too. I'll definitely be getting this book.

What a blast! Thanks for introducing me to Polyvore and FibreCo! I can't wait to pick up some patterns and yarn. =) Since this color made me crave some spring, I put this number together:

I'd style the cardigan on my daughter who is traveling around northern Argentina-with a backpack, well worn hiking shoes, and a big grin!

janine said...

I would wear it with my jeans, a tee shirt and a pair of boots. Love that cardigan...

I would wear it with a floral scarf, cropped linen pants and tank. and dansko clogs... : )

Erin said...

Yours are adorable, but I would rock mine around the house with my yoga pants and slippers. I think every great sweater should work just as well while I'm cooking dinner/changing diapers/teaching math lessons to third graders as they do on a picnic.

Anie, kale said...

I would style it with a bike complete with a picnic basket, a belted dress and boot.

Katherine Chapman said...

With a vintage shirtwaist dress of course!

Zabbers said...

Hmm I'm thinking skinny slacks and a turtleneck for an Audrey Hepburn look.

Katie said...

Those styles make me excited for spring! Such a happy green sweater.

Kelsey said...

Nice styling!! I loooovvvve Road to China light, so the thought of a sweater pattern for it is blowing my mind!
kelseyhopson@gmail.com

Rose said...

I would add it to my favorite jeans and t-shirt combo. That would certainly let it steal the stage.

Toby said...

I love the little details in Winthrop. I'm a boring jeans and t-shirt girl, but I would wear it with my blingy Wranglers.

I just got a really cute shirt dress that looks like an oversized men's button up. I love the look of cardis over dress like that and a belt over top to cinch it all in and showcase a waistline. Love this collection. Thanks for the chance to win!

J'adore your styling! I definitely think a thrifted, boldly printed dress is one of the best parts of summer. I have yet to use Organik, but the Canopy and Road to China families are amongst my favorite yarns ever!

I do like the Winthrop cardi. I would put it over a light tshirt and then add a pair of jeans to the ensemble.

Asheley said...

I love the Wintrop cardi as it would look great with any summer dress!

I would knit for my lively daughter in law. Use over a spring dress! Joan831@aol.com

PsychicKnitter said...

I would wear the cardigan with black pants and a black top to really make the sweater stand out. perhaps a purse or jewelry around the same color as the sweater as accent as well.

Lou said...

Ooh, I would style it with a white tunic top, capris, printed red floral flats, red purse and maybe a scarf around the neck. Love reading your blog! loubasketcase@comcast.net

I must wear this sweater while on vacation! It would be perfect for yarn-crawling around Europe. I would layer this with a classic white crew neck T and a pair of colorful, patterned leggings/jeans. And of course I would wear super comfy walking shoes and a cool cross-body satchel so that my hands were free for plenty of yarn fondling!
