Giveaway – Simple Style By Ann Budd

Remember this post:

I run across quite a few knitting books in my travels, excursions and jaunts, most are kind of cool, however since my life and tastes run far, far from the NY runways, and while I can drool over patterns and techniques, a lot of them don’t have a practical use in my daily life.

Enter Simple STYLE. These sweaters, jackets, vests, wraps… offer a lot of style, with minimal “runway flair”.  13 designers contributed to this latest in the “STYLE” series including Veronik Avery, Deborah Newton, Ann Smith, and quite a few more. This book combines simple patterns and techniques to create stunning, contemporary designs, even garter stitch looks awesome, paired with lace edges. These styles seek to elimnate unnecessary details, minimize seams, and reduce finishing steps.

You can get Simple STYLE from Interweave Press, here:

Well, you don’t have to go to Interweave to get the book  now, I’ll give it to you.  Leave me a comment by 3.31.09 and tell me what your favorite knitting blogs are. I’ll put you in the drawing.

Wow! 3 giveaways in one day. Someone needs to clean out their stash more often!

    The blogs I check daily include The Yarn Harlot, Vickie Howell, The Rainey Sisters, Knitgrrl, And She Knits Too, The Heathen Housewife, and this blog, in addition to several others and some spinning blogs. Takes me forever to get through them all! LOL

    Yarn Harlot hands down – she knit and makes me snort my coffee – what more do I need?

    I love Ann Budd and don’t have this book. Please add me to the giveaway.

    one of my favorite blogs is Kris Knits. She is very talented and does some really cute dishcloths and other patterns.

  7. DeeAnn S says

    I love! Their works are truly amazing and make you want to grab your needles and give the projects your best shot.

  8. Sindy says

    I think my favorites are Vickie Howell and but I am always in search of others too. I would love to win this knitting book.

  9. Meg says

    I’m afraid that I keep adding more and more knitting blogs to my RSS feed but the main one I always read is the Yarn Harlot. She is a riot and brightens my day. Other ones are Grumperina and Knitspot. I just added this one this week.

    I love Ann Budd and refer to her books often.
