Our dear publisher has sent me a couple of most excellent books, so I thought I’d get busy and give them away this morning.
400 Knitting Stitches. Not 399, not 401, but 400! This is a good solid stitch dictionary with a really pretty cover. I was tempted to keep it, but since I seem to have talked myself into all 4 of the Barbara Walkers (5 if you count the Learn-to-Knit Afghan, and I think you should), one Lesley Stanfield, and a Harmony guide, that would be a bit piggish.
Next, for our young & bangin’ friends with sewing machines:
Olive likes it, obviously.
This book is crammed with beautiful examples of Twinkle at her insouciant best. Everything is young, fun, and different-but-not-weird.
I would keep this book to make clothes for Carrie if that were not the most unrealistic idea, even for me. (What with the rug-making operation and all.) I really would love for this to go to a loving home. It’s special.
To enter the contest, leave a comment to this post no later than noon (NY time) on Wednesday, October 21, 2009, telling me which book you’d like (choose one). (Note: Anyone who says anything unsupportive about Twinkle’s models being skinny (as skinny as –gasp! shock and horror!–fashion models) will be disqualified. There’s no First Amendment in book giveaways!) The winner will be chosen by separate random drawing for each book.
In a Twinkle State of Mind
Coinky-dink: today I’m sewing up my re-gauged version of the Best Friend cardi from Twinkle’s first knitting book. It’s for Carrie or, if it doesn’t fit her, someone equally Twinkle-riffic. (But not Olive.)
