Today's the Day

The little counter at the base of my blog page just hit 149,900 hits. At this rate, it will reach 150,000 by midnight. But in case it doesn't turn the corner until the wee hours of the morning, I'll allow entries until 12 midnight on Wednesday, June 27.

To enter, just respond to this post and tell me which of my books you'd like. You can see a list of all my books by going to my website and clicking on Books and Apps in the upper right-hand corner. All books are fair game, including the yet-to-be released Knitter's Handy Book of Top-Down Sweaters.

I would also love to have . . . Top-Down Sweaters. My most recent acquisition is . . . Book of Sweater Patterns. I'm sure Top-Down will be equally wonderful (not to mention handy!).

My all time favorite knitting book is Sock Knitting Master Class. The sections on construction are very readable. The patterns are interesting and not just variations on a theme.

Julie said...

Seeing as how I have all the rest of your books in my library already, I'd love to win your new Handy Book of Top Down Sweaters. I'm especially excited about that one since I love knitting top down - it makes it so much easier to adjust for my ample bosom as I go than bottom up, in my experience.

Artsysue said...

Karen said...

I would love to have the Knitter's Handy Book of Top Down Sweaters. It looks like a wonderful addition to any knitter's library, and I especially like knitting from the top down because I am tall, and it makes it so easy to add length and knit until I am happy with the length and/or out of yarn.

Thanks for celebrating this milestone with us! I would love to add your upcoming top-down sweater book to my collection. I have to admit, I'm a bit of a fangirl. I love the approach you take in the Handy books; if you'll just help me with the general shape and construction of the garment, I'll dream up my own color scheme, stitch patterns, and embellishments.
