I love listening to your podcast! I'm so sad it's already time for a break! Thank you for the awesome give away. I haven't knit a sweater yet because I'm scared. I think a baby sweater would be the perfect way to start. Also I am IN LOVE with that yarn! Wouldn't it be the coolest thing to find another skien that matches the creme/inside color and do some sort of design with the 2 so that when you walk out side, suprise!, there is the design!

Another wonderful giveaway! Good patterns for boys are hard to come by.

I just typed out a long comment and I'm not sure it went through. Short version:
COLOR CHANGING YARN?!?!?

DatPixieGirl said...

I really like the patterns in this book, and would enjoy knitting them for my future nephew(s). The color-changing yarn would make a fantastic lace hat!

I have a little cousin on the way. I would love to knit something for him out of this book!

Love this book! Knitting for the boys are never easy since they don't want to "look girly." The book is the perfect solution.

Just discovered your podcast - loving it! Will have to keep myself going until the next series by going back and listening to old 'casts :)

Really struggle to find modern, handsome patterns for boys...this book certainly fits bill for that! Can't wait to work my way through it clothing my little guy.

That story had me laughing out loud! I can imagine my toddler watching Sesame Street (or just watching me) and doing something like that.

I love the idea of a book of patterns for boys. I'm sure my nephews would appreciate it. That yarn sounds awesome! My Rav ID is aroseb.

Thanks for hosting this giveaway.

Yarn Minded Knitter said...

I love your podcast, and will miss you during the break.

I really need a book on knitting for boys. My son loves my knitting, and constantly wants to know if I am knitting for him. My daughter, likes to take scissors to anything I give her.

Melissa McLaughlin said...

I would love to own that book. I have a two year old nephew who is rapidly growing out of the jumper I knit him last year, and some of those patterns would really suit him. I'm Bonski Beat on Ravelry.

I also just wanted to mention that I really enjoy the knitters personal stories that you feature on your podcast, and especially the one in this episode. The mental image of a little girl trying to "shear" her cat and knit with the fur is one that will stick with me for a while!!

Catalina said...

I have two older girls I've enjoyed knitting for a lot, and now I have a seven month old baby boy and I'm not having the easiest time finding patterns to knit for him. I'd love to have this book so I can dress him in tons of beautiful woollies!
Thanks for the opportunity.

I've been wanting to try this yarn and the pattern book looks amazing!

Now that I have a grandson, my first grandchild now age 2 months, I will need to start gathering patterns for future patterns. It sounds like it will keep him in sweaters for a long time.
