    The cover picture alone is enough to make me want it! I love knitting cables, I’d love to see what’s in this.

    Because in England right now we’re having a major freeze and myself and my kids would look wicked in some cable knit jumpers, scarfs and pants!!

    Kathy Zimmerman is a great teacher and I would love to make cables look nicer and learn to do more complicated ones too. Thanks!

    i love working cables but have held off on hubbys aran sweater, always more to learn!

  5. Becky on February 1, 2010 1:30 pm

    I am a self taught knitter and I haven’t figured out cables yet. This DVD would be great to show me how! Thanks for the chance to win!

  6. Robin C on February 1, 2010 2:13 pm

    oh yes, please add me to the drawing. I love cables, have never done one, kinda scared too and this would be great to learn with. Hit rewind and try again.

    This would be great to win! In this area we don’t have too many classes (more like none!) and I have to rely on books and the internet for what I learn. Having a DVD to play as often as I like would be just like taking a class!

  8. Sandi on February 1, 2010 2:55 pm

    I would love to learn how to make cables!

  9. Debbie on February 1, 2010 3:04 pm

    I would love this DVD. I took a cables class at my LYS, but the technique hasn’t “clicked” yet for me. I have never made so many errors on any knitted object as I’ve done with cables…I hope that this DVD would help me.

    I have had a few lessons with knitting. Nothing really big but I need help when it comes to the beauty behind cables. This looks awesome.

  11. Lily on February 1, 2010 4:00 pm

    I want it!!!
    I’m trying cables and lace!!!
    Thank you!!!

  12. Kitten With A Whiplash on February 1, 2010 4:42 pm

    I’ve always limited myself to the simplest of cable patterns, so I’d love to have this DVD and be able to increase my options.

  13. Catie on February 1, 2010 5:25 pm

    I am such a beginner – to be able to knit a cable WOW beyond the stars :)
    Thanks for the opportunity

    Is “trix-a-cable-phobic” — the fear of failing cables — a word? If so, that describes me. I’d like to be a Fearless Knitter. Perhaps this is just the ticket!

  15. Cindy on February 1, 2010 7:18 pm

    In my case, I love cables, but I always do the same old ones. I would add to add some variety in there, and the scarf on the cover looks gorgeous!

    I just started to learn to knit (last weekend) and this would be so nice to have so I can learn how to do more than knit and purl.

  17. Beverly on February 2, 2010 9:39 am

    I am just getting back into knitting and this book would be oh so helpful. I am on a very limited income,so, all the help I can get free is appreciated.

    Did you ever have anyone give you that “Why am I wasting my time with you?” look over the top of her bi-focals, heaving an exaggerated sigh, and icily announcing to the whole LYS, in stentorian, mock-patient tones, those totally demoralizing words “All right, I’ll show you this just one more time, but really Dearie, cabling is so easy I don’t see why you can’t get it right!” (which sounds so familiar, where had you heard that before?), and by then everyone else in the yarn shop is clucking, tsking and twittering (mostly not in the internet sense, but that one girl is definitely going to have this on you-tube with a zillion hits before you have a chance to slink away), and you’re just so embarrassed that you can’t even hear a word over the pounding of your heart as it pumps every last drop of blood into your cheeks, nor see a thing through the tears you are ever-so-valiantly-and-vainly trying to hold back, and finally the only possible action is to half-run, half-stumble out of the shop, into your car, where you try to compose yourself, but as the shame fades, the anger sets in and now all you can think of is revenge, so you call your friend Ginny, who knits like the wind, and she lends you the sweater she’s just finished, which has such beautiful, complicated cables, it looks like a relief map of Heaven, and the next weekend you take it into the shop and announce to all and sundry “See what GOOD TEACHER can accomplish? My friend gave me just one lesson, and I’ve been able to knit this in just a week!” and then Miss Snippy-Snooty comes over and says “Oh, yessss, of coursssse that would be Ginny. I sold her this one-of-a-kind hand-painted yarn, of which there was only enough for a sweater in her size (2), not your size (12), and it would appear that this is a size 2. Why, just two days ago she was in here buying these very buttons for it!” and you suddenly remember that it was Ginny who sent you to this shop to learn cabling in the first place, as she prodded you out the door of her apartment, brandishing a size 17 needle as if it were a scimitar, screaming at the top of her lungs “Really Dearie, cabling is so easy I don’t see why you can’t get it right!”?

    If you have, then you’ll understand why I need this nice, non-judgmental DVD to show me how to cable a relief map of Heaven.

    I just learned to cable and can’t think of a better person to learn from than the queen of cables herself!

    Thanks for the generous giveaway!

  20. Christy on February 2, 2010 2:46 pm

    I’ve always wanted to learn how to knit but, alas, there’s no one to teach me. I’m the only crafty one in the family and I just do cross-stitch. I’d always thought if I learned to knit, I could combine it with cross-stitching accents. Thank you for the opportunity.

  21. Diane on February 2, 2010 11:04 pm

    I would really like this because I <3 cables.

  22. Jenn on February 2, 2010 11:25 pm

    As someone who learns better by watching others, this would be a great way to learn a new knitting concept at home and at my own pace.

  23. KateMet on February 3, 2010 12:51 am

    I gave my sister-in-law a complicated cable afghan, my mother in law gave me a novelty yarn necklace. I haven’t touched cables since. Also, this will be the 4th year my husband will be home for his birthday and the Superbowl, and gone for Valentine’s Day. Please let me win once!

  24. Sarah on February 3, 2010 7:39 am

    I am new to knitting, but I am in LOVE with cables. Every pattern I try has cables!!! I would love this book!

  25. Molly on February 3, 2010 9:56 am

    I am excited to learn how to knit cables and this DVD would be the perfect teacher! I am ready to become a cable knitting master!

  26. milai on February 3, 2010 1:26 pm

    Oh my gosh cables!!! I’m a new knitter. And cables is one of my favorite stitches….I was amazed at how much fun they are to do! I taught myself to knit last fall and I’d absolutely love this book. Thanks for the chance… :)

  27. Susan on February 3, 2010 8:07 pm

    I’m knitting scarves to donate to a local shelter next winter. To date I have 5 finished. I’m looking for as many different patterns so that they will all be unique. I’ve just taught myself to cable and would love to add this book to my other patterns.

  28. diane brides on February 4, 2010 11:12 am
