I have 2 small boys (and 3 not so small kids) that would love to have gramma make something out of this book. At age 9 you try to be cool but come bedtime when you are in the dark you can hug a bear you know. This book is definitely on my wish list.

Beautiful projects and such a sweet book!

Emergeandcelebrate said...

I'd love to win a copy of this book! I think the bird in the egg is adorable.

bovinekitti said...

What a fabulous example of a toy and learning project to share with a child! There should be plenty of time for even a slower, time-crunched knitter such as myself to get one of these cute chickies completed in time for spring. My five young children would love to explore and manipulate this handknit bird, nest and egg as they learn about birds, their lifecycles, and the art of hand-knit items. With 4 girls, one of them is bound to be a knitter in time; this should certainly entice them!!

Melody said...

Oh my...I must have a copy of this book. It has been on my wish list for months...even before it came out in print.

Thanks for the chance. You are always so gracious to and thoughtful of all your listeners.

Gina said...

Love little knitted animals they're so cute!

lisagreenb said...

I cannot believe how cute the bluebird is - I am so going to knit that one! Thank you so much for the chance to win this book - even if I am not chosen, I will definitely purchase.
By the way, I just bought your watermelon cardi pattern for my daughter - will be casting on - yay!
xo,
Lisa
