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!
