A One-Skein Wonder Book Giveaway

So... I mentioned last week that I was going to be having a contest. After reviewing my knitting book library, I have finally made my decision on which book is going up for grabs first. Please read through to the bottom of this post to see how you can earn extra entries and have a greater chance of winning!
This month's book is titled "Luxury Yarn One-Skein Wonders". This is a wonderful book for knitting up some small indulgences. Lustrous alpaca is one of my favorite fibers to work with and this book has patterns for that! It also includes patterns for using such luxury yarns as organic cotton, bamboo, cashmere, silk, eco-friendly soy, corn, angora, and mohair, to the exquisite qiviut. Now you can knit small treasures using yarns you've been dreaming of. So go ahead and indulge yourself!
Contributors include designers, yarn manufacturers, and well-known knitting and crocheting teachers. There are also a few crochet patterns for the diverse fiber artists among us.



This contest will end at midnight Pacific time on Sept. 30th. That gives you 2 full weeks to help me out! How are you going to help me out you ask? All you need to do is leave a comment below and tell me what your favorite knitting patterns are. Do you enjoy knitting socks, scarves, sweaters, etc...? As you know, I'm in the process of designing a collection of knitwear for my own book. So your opinions count! What are you interested in knitting?! I want to create wearable items that you will want to knit!

  9. I'm a shawl sort-of-girl... something with a bright and pretty pattern, but that I can do (after a little bit) without looking at the pattern!

  13. Recently I've been on a sweater kick, but I'm picky because I want something that looks good on me. (crazy right?) My bust size is 42" and it seems that all the really cute sweaters either aren't designed to be made as big as I need them!

    I've also been making a lot of simple classic looking things for my almost 4 year old. I like getting a lot of use out of the knitted things I make for her, and the simpler it is, and the more positive ease I can put into it, the longer she can wear it.

    Fingerless mitts are always a weakness of mine. *sigh* My handwear has really gotten out of hand recently. ;)

  16. I LOVE knitting hats. My hat box is always full and I can hardly wait for cold weather! I am tired, however, of seeing so many shawl patterns. I don't wear the ones I've knit and can't imagine knitting more.

  17. I actually like to knit a variety of things; socks, scarves, shawlettes or anything that looks new or interesting. I would love a copy of the book!

  22. Great blog and generous giveaway offer. I have different projects for different moods and even for different rooms sometimes! - some I can pick up and knit without thinking about and others when I can glean and nurture some real concentration time. My favourites right now are shawls, textured squares and playing around with geometric shapes and mathematical knitting. Liked and shared on Facebook as Rumanci Finn. (rumanci at Ravelry)

  23. Hi Christine!

    I am now following your blog and I support you 100%! You always amaze me with all of the projects you make. I still to this day wonder how the heck you knitted that beanie with all the flames going up the sides! Good Luck everybody!
