We love Louisa Harding! Her designs are feminine without being juvenile or overly frilly. Her designs embody ladylike British design. We're excited that she is returning to the Party Line to introduce her new book Knits from an English Rose: 25 Modern-Vintage Accessories. Edwardian inspired accessories include gloves, scarves, collars, cowls and bags. As if chatting with Louisa weren't enogh, we're giving away a copy during the event!

Guess who has 2,000,000 YouTube views of her how-to videos? If you guessed Planet Purl's own PurlQueen, Beth Moriarty, you're right! I'm celebrating by giving away a prize every day in October. Here's how it works:

  • Everyday in October, at 8:00 a.m. (eastern), I'll post the prize of the day on Planet Purl's Facebook Page.

  • To be entered to win, answer the question of the day posted on Facebook. You must answer in the thread for that post to count. Messages, posts in other threads and emails won't be counted. You'll have until 7:59 a.m. (eastern) the next morning to post.

  • I'll randomly draw from the responses to choose a winner.

  • Daily winners will be announced on our Facebook page. Winners have 72 hours to claim their prizes or that prize is back up for grabs. Check every day to make sure your prize doesn't end up in someone else's stash or library!

    Click here to download the prize calendar.
