Pearl and the Beard Giveaway!
I am always up for a good giveaway, how about you guys? So when I was contacted about giving away the newest CD from a Brooklyn-based band called Pearl and the Beard, it only took my brain a second to say "okay!" But hey, I am pretty picky about my music, so I did some Youtube and internet research first, and I must say, I really like their sound.
Here's a free download of one of the tracks off their album, it's called "Reverend":
But of course, what really fascinated me about this CD was... the three person sweater, on the cover- hand-knitted by one of the band members. To prove that this is an actual sweater, and not Photoshop, here's Jocelyn, taking you through her studio and the construction of the sweater:
Aren't the colors she picked for it amazing? I wish I had those skills! Anyway, these guys are pretty adorable, and one of you lucky peeps can get their latest CD, Killing the Darlings.
All you gotta do is leave a comment here by Monday morning, 9 AM (US) Central time. And what I'd like to know in your comment is - what's the weirdest knitted item / sweater you've ever seen / made? Extra points of course, if you link to a photo and extra-extra points if you made it yourself. :) But either way, it's random, so just give it a try if you want to check out this awesome CD! Thanks, Pearl and the Beard, for sharing this with us!!!
