77triciaj said...

My princess would love to peruse this book of "enchanting" knits with her mama! Lovely of you to give it away!

brokenwings337 said...

I love how you get your listeners involved with give aways. While these things are not necessary for everyday life, some people just don't have it in the budget to buy nicer yarns or pattern books. It is so nice to see how generous you are. I for one only have 1 knitting book, and it is for reference. Because of money constraints I have to only choose free patterns, or try and find books at the library. I know there are tons of other people in the same boat, so it is very awesome that here you are offering up something for free to someone who might not otherwise have access to it!

Love your blog and podcast :)

Cheryl said...

What a lovely princess. I have a prince I love to knit for.

rebeccahuff said...

My four princesses would really enjoy the book!

I work at a Borders Book store I saw this book on Friday and just about died with glee. I love fairy tales, I love knitting and my 1 1/2 year old niece loves the feel of knitted items. I'm so excited to knit something from this book. I hope I win it but if I don't I'm still going to buy a copy.

Anna said...

Count me in. I would love to have this book. I have 2 princeses - 4 year old and 2 year old. They are already trying to knit with me. The only problem is that every time I am left to untie their creations :).

anna said...

Lovely. lovely. I could use some dreamy inspiration like this!

fitlinda said...

I am so excited to hear about a book of children's patterns that includes more than just 1 or 2 token boys' patterns. I'm hoping for an eventual granddaughter, but right now, my grandson needs some goodies from his grandma.
