Raffle Time!

They're here! The Knitter's Handy Book of Top-Down Sweaters arrived at the Interweave warehouse. Of course, this momentous occasion needs to be celebrated with another raffle. I'll use a random-number generator to choose two (2) names from those that respond to this post by midnight (mountain time) Wednesday, July 25 and send those winners a complimentary copy.
Sharpen your needles!

Ooooh! I'd love to have a copy. Being one of the first to comment usually is a bad omen or position for random drawing... oh, well.

Thank you for both your generosity, and for your contributions to the knitting world. You've made my life as a knitter so much easier!

I would so love to win a copy and use it to knit a sweater to celebrate finishing crib blankets for the four (4!) family babies making their appearance this year!
I love these babies (even the two who are still in utero) and love knitting for them, but am more than a little sick of yard after yard of flat baby blanket!

Knitting from the top, for me, is the best way to achieve a good fit, be it socks, gloves, or sweaters. Your book has been in my Amazon queue since it first was posted. Even if my number doesn't come up in your raffle, I'll have my own copy soon.
