Birthday Wishes

Tomorrow (Sept 1) is my birthday and I wish to give away a gift--any of my print books or the new cast-on/bind-off DVD.
Respond to this post by midnight Saturday to tell me which you'd like (only one entry per person, please) and I use the trusty random-number generator to choose a winner Sunday (Sept 2) morning.
Click here for a list of books.
Unfortunately, I don't have access to eBooks, video downloads, or apps so they are disqualified from this offer.
Enjoy the holiday weekend!

What a lovely thought -- giving away a gift on your birthday. Thank-you.

The book list link isn't working for me at the moment, but I'm on a cast on/bind off kick at the moment... So if the Knitting Wish Fairy points her wand in my direction, I'm wishing for the Cast On Bind Off DVD.

Happy Birthday! And many more.

DebraSt said...

Such generosity! And on your birthday too! Have a very happy birthday! What a tough decision between such great references! I have checked out Sock Knitting Master Class from the library at least 3 times. I haven't seen Knitter's Handy Book of Top-Down Sweaters yet but I sent in a request for the library to purchase copies and they are now on order. I wish books were in my budget to buy myself! Anyway, I guess if I had to choose it would be Knitter's Handy Book of Top-Down Sweaters since I am very anxious to see it!

Sara said...

Just wanted to wish you a happy birthday, and hope you have a lovely day to celebrate.

Please don't put me in the draw. I live abroad and don't think it's fair for you to pay international postage.
