On The Road: A Knit Lookbook

This collection is called

On The Road

because I primarily designed and created these pieces when I was, in fact, on the road.

I resolved at the beginning of the year that this would be a year of traveling, and I'm pleased to say that it has been. I've been to six different states so far this year (some of them multiple times), not to mention various cities within Virginia and two more states are on the calendar for this month.
Not bad in a six month period.

While I would dearly love to go out of the country before the year's out, and there's been various planning/dreaming for that, I still very much love exploring this country of mine and all it has to offer. 

It's a wildly beautiful one after all. 

Technically all but one of these pieces is crocheted, but I decided to stick with the "Knit Lookbook" title that I've used in the past.

Besides, you can be sure come fall I'm going to have heaps of new cozy knits for you guys anyway. ;)


In honor of traveling, the new designs and stylish crocheting/knitting loving people everywhere, I am doing a giveaway this week for one item of your choice from the shop! All you have to do is email (agirlnamedleney@gmail.com) or message me on Facebook (A Girl Named Leney) a photo with your favorite memory of being on the road.

It can be a sentence, or a small paragraph, whatever you like.

Next week, on July 9th, I will put them in an album on my page and people will vote for their favorite! The winner will get their choice of one free piece from the shop.

So spread the word, the more the merrier! I want to hear your stories. Because I love stories, especially travel ones. 

Speaking of which, each piece in this collection has it's own story, which you can read in it's own respective listing, at the the bottom of the post. 

But now, without further ado...
