Remember the Commodores circa 1977? How about Lionel Richie when he was more famous than his daughter? There was a dance song called Brick House that was all the rage. It's still the rage around here. We have a ritual we like to call "Dance Party Fridays". We turn up the music and get a head start on the weekend.
Laura Nelkin is also a fan of Brick House. She likes is so well that she created a pattern named after it.
Brick House is based on an easily memorized brick eyelet pattern. Started at the bottom, you have a chance to learn the pattern over a few stitches, increasing on each side as go you. As you get the hang of the pattern, it starts getting wider and kind of addictive.
Knit in Lorna's Laces Solemate, it's shown here in 18 Watercolor and 711 Grant Park but the color combinations are endless.
Anyway, we need your help updating our Friday playlist so we decided to do a joint giveaway that is a bit more fun that usual... Ready?
Grand Prize: Two Skeins of Solemate, 1 Brickhouse Pattern, AND The Best of the Commodores
Runner ups: Five lucky winners will receive a Brickhouse Pattern.
(6 winners TOTAL)
Leave a comment BOTH here and on Laura's blog with favorite song that has SOLE...bonus points if you include a link to the youtube video (and a way to get in touch with you!)
