Giveaway! (Closed Midnight Monday!)

While packing my stash for the move to the lake I found duplicates of a couple books. What can I say? It must be really appealing to buy it twice! So, I have two books to giveaway. The first one is "45 Fine & Fanciful Hats to Knit". My knitting skills aren't up to this, I'm afraid - I wish they were because it is a gorgeous book!

The second book for giveaway is "Tatting Doilies & Edgings", edited by Ruth Weiss. This is a good one because it has lots of edgings that can be tatted and used for crazy quilting. Of course, you could tat the doilies and edgings for anything you like! lol
So, to enter the giveaway simply leave a comment with your email address and indicating which book you would like to go in the draw for. I'll draw names sometime on Monday. Thanks!

What a great set of books! They really must have been a good buy that day or you wanted one for the house and one for your workbasket, not aging memory loss, I hope. LOL I would love to have the tatting book. I have seen this book around and it is really nice. Thanks for the opportunity.

Sharon said...

Kerry I'm always looking for edges to tat. Haven't been tatting for some time now because I have a lot to knit. I'm not into knitting hats tho', don't wear them, they will always pop off my head.

Cathy said...

I have just taught myself to tat and have ventured out of my learning book to a few others - so I'd be interested in your tatting book drawing, please!

I don't knit - just crochet.

Funny thing - I buy duplicates of books a lot, especially mysteries.

What lovely books! I've been trying tatting with a long needle and making some progress. I like the idea of edgings for CQ blocks, so I chose the tatting book if I'm lucky to be a winner.

I am adding my name now - love the hats. They look complicated but being small projects they would be a way to try knitting those lovely multi-coloured patterns.

Perhaps Laurie didn't think she needed warm wooly hats - plastic and water proof might suit her better LOL.

I had to smile when I saw the picture of the yellow headed blackbirds - we have some here in a small pond. They come every year to nest.
