Blogiversary Book Giveaway!


In celebration of my four year "blogiversary" I have a nice stack of knitting books to give away!




I love knitting books. Love. Them. 
There are so many fabulous books out there, but here are a few newer releases that will really round out your knitting library.

Starting at the top of the stack...





What a completely charming little book this is. This isn't just a book of knitting patterns, a book of essays, or a recipe book.. it is actually all three. And it is put together in a very touching way. This book is written and illustrated by Michelle Edwards and in it she shares the role that knitting has played in her relationships with family, friends and her community throughout her life.





A great, go-to accessory book of 60 patterns all using Cascade 220 Sport yarn. There are 20 hats, 20 scarves, and 20 mitten designs for you to choose from. This book offers many cute patterns in a wide variety of styles so there is something here for everyone. This is a great resource for knitted gift ideas.





If you enjoyed Wendy Bernards first book offering, Custom Knits, as I did, then you will also love Custom Knits 2. As someone who loves sweater knitting, I really appreciate Wendy's amazing insight on how to plan, alter, add-on, convert, and customize sweater patterns. This book contains tons of extremely useful information as well as several beautiful garment designs. An amazing publication for sure.. although the pictures of the women modeling their sweaters with their bikini bottoms will always make me chuckle just a little bit. :)





In this book, Vicki Stiefel and Lisa Souza offer up a fun and relaxed approach to knitting with their 10 secrets to knitting success. Its a great read with lots of fun stories, information, and interviews.. not to mention... some seriously cute patterns too! I desperately am wanting to make my daughter the
Princess Garden Skirt.




Finishing School: A Master Class for Knitters

Ok... I seriously am in love with this book! My time as a knitter has taught me how important finishing is for every knitted project. This book covers it all. Zippers.. seaming.. steeking.. blocking.. everything. It's a great reference book. I think that everyone should own a copy!


To enter to win this collection of five fabulous books, please leave a comment (including contact information) under this post. In your comment I'd love to hear how long you have been a reader of Never Not Knitting and what your favorite knitting book is. And no.. you don't have to say Coastal Knits. :)

I will randomly pick and announce a winner from among the comments left on Sunday December 4th.
You have until December 3rd to enter.

Remember only one comment per person please. And if you do not leave any contact information for me such as an email address, ravelry id, or so forth, I will have to pick another winner if your name is chosen.
I have had too many problems with unclaimed prizes and it's important that I am able to get ahold of you if you win. Thank you!

And just to make sure.. you do know about the blogiversary pattern sale, right?

erin said...

All of those books sound awesome! I've been reading your blog for a little over a year now! One of my favorite knitting books of all time is the Knitter's Almanac, or any EZ book, really. I love Coastal Knits too!

I am theknittingsquid on Ravelry.

StikineStix said...

I have been reading this blog for about 1 year now after stumbling upon it purely by accident. Now I check in at least a couple of times a week to see if there are new posts! I love it! My favorite knitting book would have to be Stitch N Bitch. It is my go to resource book when I am unsure about something. It has lots of wear on it!

I've been a Never Not Knitting Reader for at least 3 of the 4 years :). The books I seem to make the most patterns out of have been Last Minute Knitted Gifts and More Last Minute Knitted Gifts by Joelle Hoverson. I love knitting books, too and never turn down a chance to add to my collection. Thanks for the great giveaway!

Stephanie M said...

I have not been a reader of your blog for long, but have been listening to your pod casts lately at the gym. Thank you for helping me get through my workout. I am tilaturtle on Ravelry.

Congratulations on the blogiversary!

Janelle said...

What an awesome giveaway! I've been reading your blog for 3-4 yrs now. You are an inspiration! I have a lot of knitting books that I love, but currently my favorite has been Itty Bitty Hats. Perfect for baby gifts and I seem to be making a lot of those lately. :)

Nobiantary said...

I've only just found your blog a few months ago! It's very inspiring and I love the beautiful photos.

I live in Sweden and unfortunately the range of knitting books is very small here. Almost no shops carry any international titles (well the online shops do, but that's not nearly as fun).
My favourite knitting book is a japanese collection of patterns that I found at a bargain in an used books shop. I don't read japanese so I've got no idea of the name of the book.

Psychgrad said...

I have been following for a couple of months now. I can't say that I have a favourite book. I tend to just look for individual patterns rather than knit my way through a book.

bloggingwagon@hotmail.com

Chelle (Dana) said...

I just found your blog a short while ago when I saw the Coastal Knits pre-order, which I did pre-order! I just finished the beret and love it! I would have to say that Coastal Knits is one of my favorites, as it is put together so beautifully!

You can find me as WoolieChelle on Ravelry.

jennybookworm said...

I've been reading your blog for about a year now, I think! I always have "Knitspeak" by Andrea Berman Price nearby - handy to look up terms in and I love having the Yarn Harlot's books around too.

Steff said...

Oh how fun!!! I <3 knitting books!!

Silvia M. said...

I was trying to remember when I first found your blog.... and I think it must have been around the time I joined Ravelry back in 2008. I'm pretty sure it was through a link there.
One of my favorite knitting books is "New England Knits" by Cecily Glowik McDonald and Melissa LaBarre.
This is a really cool giveaway, thanks!

Kristen said...

I've probably been reading your blog for 2-3 years! Fun!

SillyLittleLady said...

I've been a follower of Never Not Knitting for at least the past year, not sure entirely how long but I love watching your design process unfold!

My most invaluable knitting books are usually stitch dictionaries, they help spark inspiration when my designing mind gets in a rut :)

I'd love to win any of the books.

NeoKnitter said...

I just found you recently so haven't been following for very long.

Not sure I have a favourite knitting book as I don't have too many. I do have Custom Knits (the first one) and think it's fabulous. Also have Knit Fix and think it's totally handy.

Becca said...

I've only been reading your blog for about two weeks now, but happy Blogiversary!!

At the moment, all of the knitting books I've used have come from the library, but I've had a major book-crush on Custom Knits for about a year now...

Best,
Becca

I've just starting reading your blog a couple of days ago, but I've really enjoyed it. And apparently I found you just in time! My CURRENT favorite knitting book is probably Wendy Johnson's Socks from the Toe Up, because I'm currently in a bit of a sock knitting frenzy. Just a little one... And you can contact me on my blog, or my ravelry name is gnomesbeatfaeries

I've been following for about a year. I love all the recent baby knit posts. It makes me want to make more stuff for my little fuzz-head.

My go-to reference book is Vogue Knitting: The Ultimate Knitting Book. My favorite pattern book is The Ohio Knitting Mills Knitting Book. I can't deny a poor boy pattern.

I'm MamaRamelade on Rav.

Manda said...

I've been reading the blog since you started the podcast, so... three years or so? Love it. :)

I have probably three top-favorite books, because I've gotten the most use out of them: Mason Dixon Knitting (I love the Moderne Baby Blanket! I've made it 2-3 times!), Stitch 'n Bitch (The Big Bad Baby Blanket & the Umbilical Cord hat are go-to baby gift patterns), and Sock Innovation by Cookie A. I also plan to knit everything out of Coastal Knits, but I haven't had a chance yet. hehe :)

Thanks for hosting the giveaway!
Manda (knitpsycho on Ravelry or hello.lovely {!at} gmail.com)

AmyP said...

What a fantastic collection of books! My most used book is Cookie A's first...I'll bet I've knit more than 1/2 of those patterns!

Brenda said...

Thanks again for another give away...and while you're probably sleep deprived, too! I really like reading the Mason Dixon knitting books...full of humor and fun! I've been a fan of Never Not Knitting for about a year, and only recently started listening to your blog while out walking. Take care! My Ravelry name is Brennee and my contact info is brenda.pirie@comcast.net. Thanks again!

Oneday Designs said...

I am a new blog reader since purchasing Coastal Knits. I love this book. My favourite all time books are Cat Bordhi`s Treasury of Magical Knitting books one and two and Barbara Walkers Stitch Dictionary Volume 2 and having just purchased Bambeanies, that is right up there with my favourites.

Star said...

I have been following for 4 or so months, it was the name of your blog that got me, cause i'm never not knitting too, I haven't a fav knitting book yet, I do hope I win so I can discover more knitting books.

Diana Burrell said...

Congratulations on your 4 year blogaversary! My favorite knitting book is Knitting Without Tears by EZ because it's the first book that made me feel like I could call myself a knitter. :)

Julliana Lund said...

I love knitting books too! All of those look so great. Right now my favorite is a stitch pattern book because I love experimenting with different textures and shapes.

navymomma said...

Wow thanks for the great giveaway and congradulations on the new baby and 4 years of blogging. I LOVE Swedish Knits all the swatch patterns are just a great starting point for just about anything you want to knit! I started reading your blog almost a year ago when my friend told me about you. I love to drool over all your beautiful knits.

I think I have been following the blog for about a year now, but you can't trust me when it comes to time ;).
My favorite knitting book might be Amigurumi Knits by Hansi Singh. It not only has a ton of adorable little knit plushies, but it also has a great reference guide in it! Super well done photo shots of each step. I always refer to it when I have to do kitchener stitch.

I think I've been a reader of your post for about three years! Book?--I love them all! I use Sensational Knitted Socks the most. The cover is coming off!

ThatCleverClementine said...

I think I've been following you for a couple of years now ... gosh, it's gone by so quickly! I'm seriously smitten by the Finishing Book - I know that's an area I always feel I could do better, and maybe that would encourage me?

Claire said...

I've been following your blog for at least a year and half, maybe two years or more...time flies!!

My favorite, go-to, knitting book is Knitting Without Tears, by E. Zimmerman. If I ever have any issues I know I'll find the solution in there. (Custom Knits is a close 2nd place though)

I'm a new reader of your blog, but it is on my don't miss these blogs list. I'm going to knit the Owlet sweater for my granddaughter because of you. We had fun choosing colors.
My favorite knitting book right now is Little Red in the City. There is so much information on how to size sweaters correctly and how to measure the body (not always a pleasant experience.)
Thanks for the chance at acquiring some great books.
Find me on Ravelry as BCGramma or cadams@bcacs.org

deidre said...

I listened to your podcast regularly when I worked my factory job,but have only read your blog the last couple of years(finally got my own computer). My favorite knitting book is usually whichever one I am reading or rereading at the time. Thanks for the chance! lostinkansas on Ravelry

LochKnitsMonster said...

I've been reading the blog and listening to the podcast for about a year and a half now. I really enjoy both and I'm super excited about Coastal Knits. My favorite knitting book is Vogue Knitting Ultimate Guide to Knitting. It was my first knitting book so it's dear to me and it's a great reference book that I still refer to from time to time.

My favorite knitting book should be Knitting for dummies since it is learning from this book that made me fall in love with knitting. I also love Coastal Knits, if you that book ;-) Seriously, it's the first knitting book that I own that is not a reference book! My ravelry id is anyonecanknit (is usually the blogger link enough or you would draw someone else?) Have a great week! And Happy Bloggiversary again!

Very cool giveaway! I think I've been listening/reading for about a year? I save your podcasts for days when I'm driving a lot for work or when I have a particularly large pile of dishes to work on - makes it much better!

hope you're having a lovely time settling in with your sweet baby!

Whoa! that is a super generous giveaway. I have been listening and reading to NNK for over a year but it may be longer. I can remember where I was and what I was doing when I listened to my first podcast of yours but would have to work hard to figure out the date. I'm so glad I found you and wish you all the best in your continued knitting endeavors.

Cinnamon said...

What a fantastic collection of books! My favorites are all of EZ's. I just love the way her writing in clear, straightforward, and she assumes the reader is smart. And I think I've been reading and listening to NNK for 3 of your 4 years!

I think I've been reading your blog for a little over a year. I've so enjoyed seeing all the things you've made for your darling little one, since I've been knitting non-stop for grandchildren for over 8 years now. I have to say my favorite book is Vicki Square's "Knitter's Companion" because I go to it again and again. A close second would be Ann Budd's " The Knitter's Handy Book of Patterns" because I tend to make things up as I go along and get a lot of help from those basic patterns.

Thanks for the giveaway.

Hi Alana,
Congratulations on the safe arrival of your beloved little man. I've been following your blog for just over a year now and I think my favourite knitty book is a dead heat between "Baby knits for beginners" (Debbie Bliss) and "Adorable knits for tots" (Zoe Mellor). As a relatively new knitter I've learnt so much from these books.
Thanks, Briony (RavID- pricelesspurls)

I hope you are right in the middle of loving that small person. My daughter gave me a copy of The Knitter's Home Companion - nice book. But, I'd enjoy one of the others.

My fave book of those I own is "Knitting Without Tears" by Elizabeth Zimmerman. The woman is genius and ridiculously funny.

I'm not sure how long I've been following your podcast - maybe a couple years? (Once I started listening, I went back and listened to all the old podcasts as well!)

My favorite knitting book? Hm. I like the Mason-Dixon books, and Stephanie Pearl McPhee's Knitting Rules. I love the photography in Shear Spirit. But, truth be told, my go-to book when I have a knitting question, is The Interweave Knitter's Companion.

Thanks, and give that little guy a hug!

I've been hankering after the 10 Secrets of Laidback Knitters, but I received a lot of books for my birthday and haven't been through all of them yet, so I'm holding off on buying. Winning would be even better! My favorite knitting book is EZ's Knitting Without Tears. It's just like having your favorite aunt knitting with you.

Love your blog. I have been reading it about a year. My favorite knitting book is The Knitter's Companion. Use it all the time. Hope you and your little one are well.

Hi, I'm brand new to your blog! I only discovered it five minutes ago, reading a post by Through the Loops! and I've just now subscribed. I haven't knitted for 25 yrs, since my girls were little, but now, with my 1st grandchild due in about 5 weeks, I think it's time I returned to it! My favourite knitting book? I can only tell you about my fave knitting pattern mags from way back - Anny Blatt. I love her designs, knitted heaps of them. Thanks for the giveaway!

Amy Lamash said...

Wow, what a great prize! I have been following your blog as long as I can remember. Maybe 2 years? It's hard to pick a favorite knitting book, I have a few favorites for different reasons, but if I had to pick one I would pick A Knitting Glossary by EZ and Meg Swansen. It's not really a book, it's a CD, but surely they would have a CD player on the desert island, right?

stipton said...

I just started following your blog this summer. I heard your last podcast and loved it. It's hard to say which book I go to most, but any of my EZ books are favorites. This is a fantastic giveaway! Happy blogiversary.

Happy blogiversary!

This is a great giveaway...3 of those books are on my wish list, one of them should be, and I've got the other but don't know where it is!

As for my favorite knitting book: Funnily enough, my last two FO's and my current project are all from Coastal Knits - but my all-time favorite knitting book has to be Knitting Without Tears.

(just in case I win, I'm tracytracy on rav too) :)

Faith (the Vampire Slayer) said...

Excellent collection of books. Finishing School is at the top of my wish list for Christmas.

I've been reading your blog for a little over two years and have been a podcast listener for longer. I've really enjoyed all of the content you have put together. Thanks for letting your readers be such a big part of your journey!

Oh what a wonderful give-away! I've had the knitter's companion on my list for a while. Sadly enough my collection of knittign books is pathetic, I own maybe 5? So honestly my favorite of this really IS Coastal knits...
So you see? I really need more books to roung out my collection!

I just started following you after I saw the previews of Coastal Knits, beautiful book BTW.

Nicky said...

This would be such a lovely addition to my library of knitting books.
My fav is " A Gathering of Lace" by Meg Swansen. I haven't knit anything from the book yet. I have just drooled over the pictures so far. :)
Your wee boy is beautiful. I so look forward to seeing my pics of him in lovely handknits. I bet your daughter adores him.

I have been reading your blog (and lurking, btw, sorry!) since about mid-2008. I started listening to the podcast at about episode 3, then went back and listened to the first two, and then hit your blog!

My favorite knitting book right now is probably the Knitter's Book of Wool. (I also love the Fleece & Fiber Sourcebook, but that isn't quite so knitting oriented.) because I am a big geek.

I have been listening to NNK since the beginning and reading the blog since the podcast began. I am glad things are going so well with the baby and it's nice to "hear" your voice, Alana. :-)

I think my favorite knitting book is Aran Knitting by Alice Starmore. I must have checked this out from the library 10 times before it was re-released last year. It has a wonderful combo of history (Love how she debunks a bunch of colorful myths about cabled knitting), how-to, and luscious patterns...many are dated now but most are still eye candy. :-)

Thanks for the chance to win! Wordpurler on Rav.

I have been only reading your blog on a regular basis for the past few months, but have been catching up reading older posts. Loved your podcast and am missing those but as a mother of four kids myself, I understand the ebbs and flows of life. There is a time and a season.

I would have to say that I'm a huge EZ fan and love Knitters Almanac and Knitting Around. I love her dry humor as well as her wonderful skills she shared with all of us.

Hope all is going well with the new baby. Happy Blogiversary!

Heidi said...

My first knitting book love is the little 1970s booklet (name unknown) that taught me how to knit. I've since passed it on. I have Ysolda's new book Little Red and love the general information, New England Knits and Vintage Modern Knits for staring at patterns, and Selbuvotter for feeling the history of knitting. And I DO love my Coastal Knits and am halfway through my Rocky Coast.
Been listening for about 2 years and love the podcast, blog. Congrats on the book and baby!!

I have been reading your blog for a little over two years now, I think. I was pregnant with my second daughter at the time (and now I already have my third!).

I am trying to think which book I pull from my shelf the most often . . . I think it may be The Knitter's Book of Finishing Techniques by Nancie Wiseman.

Hi Alana,
I cannot recall when first I started read/listen to you. Everything started for me when I discovered wonderful world of Podcasts!
My favorite books are all of EZ!

Heather said...

What a great collection of books! I have been reading your blog for just a few months - stumbled across it when Coastal Knits was being released. I just happened to be in Maine about that time and picked up a copy there and brought it back with me to CA. I actually think Coastal Knits is my favorite because I love the stories about the places that inspired the knits.

Thanks,
Heather

Wow, what an amazing selection! I have been reading your blog for about two years. I admit I don't use books as much now that there is so much knitting info on the web. But I do love my copy of Silk Road Socks and have already made two patterns from it; planning a few more!

Love books, especially knitting books! I've been following your blog for just over a year. I've always loved Elizabeth Zimmerman knitting books. I've learned a lot from them and they're a great read. But I also love my Coastal Knits. Not only are they great patterns but the photography is beautiful. Not just a knitting book but a coffee table book too! :)

Congrats on the baby, How adorably sweet he is.
I have been reading your blog now for about 6 months and it is one of my favorites. You are no doubt a master knitter. I hope I grow up to knit just like you!!!!
My fav book is: BOOKS: Mason&Dixon books and Folk Style by Mags Kandis but I have been salivating for "Finishing School" and your book "Coastal Knits" is on my list too, BTW! (I know you said you don't have to write it, but it's true!!!)
Good luck with everything..

I've been reading your blog for almost a year now and it feels like it is so much longer. I'm pretty much addicted to your site and love how you share your personal and knitting life with us. Also love the pretty knitting pictures. Your daughter is the cutest little girl I've seen in pictures and your baby boy is just so precious. To date one of my favorite knitting books is Coastal Knits (no lie!). The patterns and yarn pairings you and Hannah put together are fantastic. The photos of the garments are just breathtaking. Makes me want to knit everything in there, even though my skills aren't quite there yet. My other favorite knitting book is "New England Knits". Both books are destined to be classics. The designs certainly are!

I have a fondness for Knitted Lace of Estonia at the moment, for the lovely patterns and pictures, but my favourite knitting book changes depending on what I've been working on.

I've been following Never Not Knitting for probably about a year now; it's been a while so I don't remember for sure when I started reading it.

I've only been following your blog a few months, since someone recommended your podcast.

My favorite knitting book has to be the Barbara Walker Treasury of knitting patterns. I just love playing with different stitch patterns.

I've been reading your blog almost as long as it has been around. I really don't have a favorite book, it changes from day to day. I'd love to win this giveaway. Thank you for the opportunity and congrats on your new little boy and also the blog anniversary.

I've been reading your blog almost as long as I've been knitting; which is almost a year! I'm a die hard fan and have shown probably about 10 of my friends your owl sweater and little baby grandpa cardigan :). My birthday is on the 1st! Winning those books would be stellar!!!! So far I've bArely been able to live without 'the Knitting Bible' which is one of my go-to resource books

Happy Blogiversary Alana!
I started following your blog last March - when I got into knitting and podcasts.

It's hard to pick just one, but my favourite knitting book is probably Brave New Knits.

I hope you and your little boy are doing well!

(my contact details are in my Blogger profile.)

rebekah dwyer said...

I discovered NNK about four months ago whilst in the midst of hideous pregnancy sickness (still going, 36 weeks). Your podcast and blog have been a light in a dark tunnel - I'm almost all the way through the back log of podcasts to the very beginning! I was recently given Little Red in the City by Ysolda after hearing it reviewed on your podcast - love it! Rebekah@scruffian.com

grandmastatus said...

I've only been reading the blog for about 4 months, but I feel like I've been here a lot longer, because I listened to all the podcasts.
My favorite knitting book is.... hrm. That's so hard. I have a whole bookshelf dedicated to my knitting books (and a whole other one dedicated to books like a Knitter's Home Companion- with stories/essays about knitting) so I'm not really sure I can pick one. I really like a book I can read though, so I think I'd go for something like Knitting Without Tears by EZ or Knitting Rules by Stepahanie Pearl Mc-Phee.
I did recently acquire The Opinionated Knitter and I really like that one as well, because it has very cute photography and I enjoy the bits from EZ's personal diary.

Enjoy your babymoon with your handsome boy (and family).

I have been a fond follower of your blog for almost a year now and have bought quite a few patterns (Cosette Shawl recently posted on Ravelry and I'm chomping at the bit to make another very soon).

Mmmm, my favourite knitting books. There are many. Natural Nursery Knits, Knitting in Detail, Knitting at Home.....

Have a beautiful week.

I've been a follower for about 3 years now (when I first started knitting). I searched itunes for knitting podcasts and yours came up. The opening song sucked me in! :)I don't really have a favorite book because I don't have very many.

Where do you get the time of doing things like this with a tiny little fellow in the house?

I'm reading your blog since the beginning of your Playful Stripes Cardigan (the very first release). I fell in love with that pattern instantly. Found it on Ravelry and followed you since then... :)
I love your child-patterns the most. I don't like knitting for myself (I always find it a waste of time), but I LOVE knitting for my 3 beautiful girls. :)

Like you I like knitting books. Actually books in general are a problem. I try to stick to just buying non-fiction books and borrowing fiction these days.

I started reading your blog about two years ago and enjoy listening to your podcast while knitting.

I'm not sure which is my favourite knitting book. There are several that I've knit a few patterns out of like One-Skein Wonders, Knitted Gifts and Natural Knits for Babies. But my favourites are those with good photography. You have to be able to actually see the knitted garment from different angles.

I've been reading your blog for over a year now... and my favorite knitting book? Wow, it depends on what I'm working on at the moment - for instance, right now it's Vintage Baby Knits. But my 'go to' when I have any issue, need clarification is my Stitch-n-Bitch, which I taught myself to knit from just over 2 years ago.

Sweet! One of the books your giving away is one that I've been wanting!!! And I've never even seen the others! Looks like a great line up! My favorite knitting book that I have is: "knit-a-long", it has incredible patterns such as the Eden scarf, the meathead hat, the pinwheel blanket, to name a few! I'd say the "coastal knits" was my fav but then I'd be lying because I haven't scraped up the money to buy it yet :( it looks awesome tho!!! I've been following the blog now for hmmm... Maybe 7- 8 months and am hooked! Happy Anniversary! I'm looking forward to seeing more anniversaries in the future! My email: naturally.artsea@gmail.com ... There's NO way I wouldn't claim my prize!!!!
