twist and loopWith Valentine’s Day right around the corner, thoughts might turn to adding some new jewelry to your collection. If you don’t have someone who will buy jewelry for you, don’t despair; you can knit your own!

This week’s giveaway features two books that will show you how to do just that: Knitted Wire Jewelry by Samantha A. Lopez and Annie Modesitt’s Twist and Loop. These books are so fun and will teach you how to knit with wire and give you tons of creative ideas for using wire and beads to knit and crochet stunning objects. You’ll learn a lot about jewelry making in general along the way, too.

To win, leave a comment on this post before the end of the day next Tuesday, Jan. 29. If you want, tell me if you have any experience knitting with wire or otherwise knitting jewelry. One winner will be chosen at random from all entries. Good luck!

  9. enidb on January 23, 2013 3:17 pm

    I’ve crocheted with silver wire. I plan to knit the next cuff bracelet, but am trying to figure out the best way to attach to the clasp, and some other refinements.

  10. Maureen on January 23, 2013 3:18 pm

    I knit but I did not know that you could knit wires or make jewelry out of it.

  11. amsa on January 23, 2013 3:21 pm

    I love the way crocheted wire comes out. Haven’t tried knitting just yet but it’s a big must do for me.
    These books would push me towards the direction.

  12. Lexi on January 23, 2013 3:43 pm

  24. Ann Devine on January 24, 2013 7:27 am

    I’m definitely into bling that’s handmade, especially if I can teach my hands to make it! These books would be very “handy” for teaching this old dog some new tricks.

  25. Marijo Hinton on January 24, 2013 7:30 am

    I love handmade everything!!! How I would love to try this new, beautiful jewelry.

  26. Ginny M on January 24, 2013 7:40 am

    I have never knitted with anything other than yarn and nothing as delicate as jewelry.

  27. Karey on January 24, 2013 7:41 am

    Knitting and jewelry making – two of my favorite things to do!! How can this get any better?

  28. Jeanne on January 24, 2013 7:44 am

  33. redcarousellion on January 24, 2013 9:24 am

    I’ve done some basic crocheting with wire and have done a little “knitting” on a spool to make jewelry.

    But really, really want to expand my skils that these books would be great for that.

  34. geri actor on January 24, 2013 9:34 am

    Have no experience yet knitting wire, but gathered the materials to start trying and just need to find some time!

  35. Karen in KS on January 24, 2013 10:36 am

    I have been wanting to knit with wire for a while now. This book would be great!

  36. Emmi L on January 24, 2013 11:07 am

    Oooh! I would love to try this! I love to knit and crochet, but haven’t tried it with wire; however, I love jewelry and to knit my own would be awesome!

  37. Cyd on January 24, 2013 11:22 am

    This looks fascinating! I would share with my sis-in-law who would make me something!

  38. Rose on January 24, 2013 12:07 pm

  40. Leslie on January 24, 2013 12:45 pm

    I’ve done some knitting but not jewelry yet, would love to try.

  41. Mary Mac on January 24, 2013 1:19 pm

    I have four pieces of crochet necklaces that are beautiful. They were made by the same artist. NOT ME. I have never tried this form of knitting.

  42. Rose S. on January 24, 2013 2:47 pm

    I have never use wire to knit but I would certainly love the opportunity to try it.

  43. maura hagarty-bannon on January 24, 2013 3:18 pm

  44. Shawn Johnson on January 24, 2013 3:42 pm

    I have never knitted with wire but it looks very interesting and the end result is awesome. Hopefully I win so I can learn how.

  45. Pauleen Potter on January 24, 2013 5:44 pm

    I’ve been meaning to learn to crochet with beads and winning this books would be a great way to start.

  46. Karen B on January 24, 2013 5:44 pm

  47. Karen Zumbrun on January 24, 2013 6:15 pm

    Hi, Thanks for the giveaway. I knit but never with wire. I’d like to try though.

  48. OHSue on January 24, 2013 6:27 pm

    I love wire wrapping and manipulation and I love knitting, what a fun combo this book would be. Thanks for offering to share.

  49. Val F on January 24, 2013 6:31 pm

    No, I’ve never knitted jewelry, much less wire jewelry. But I’m so excited to try!

  50. Julie on January 24, 2013 7:28 pm

    I’ve crocheted a couple of things with wire, and I would love to do more!

  52. Mary Rok on January 25, 2013 9:53 am

  53. jo on January 25, 2013 4:45 pm

    would LOVE to win – I’ve done some very beginner-type pieces so would love to learn more advanced ideas!

  54. Charlene Anderson on January 25, 2013 5:15 pm

    This is my alley and this book is right up it. Char

  55. Barbara on January 26, 2013 12:32 am

    I would love this. I have not tried wire yet but have seen it demonstrated.

  56. Helen on January 26, 2013 12:45 pm

    Jewellery making generally, and crocheting with wire in particular, are on my list of things to learn this year. I hasn’t thought of knitting with wire, but now you have me intrigued!

  57. Val F on January 26, 2013 1:25 pm

    I’d love to knit with wire since I’ve never done it. But then I’d have to figure out where to go all decked out with bling!

  58. Mona on January 26, 2013 1:41 pm

    I’ve knitted without beads and I’ve made beaded jewelry without knitting, so it’d be great to do both together :)

  59. adrienne z on January 26, 2013 8:13 pm

    have never tried this but would love to learn something new!

  60. Mica Anderson on January 27, 2013 2:59 am

    I love to knit in general and make jewelry, but it would be amazing to learn how to do the knitted jewelry as well. That way I can decorate myself with even more jewelry!! :)

  61. Charlotte on January 27, 2013 9:38 am

    I’ve crocheted with cassette tape & coated wire, but not bare wire yet. So far, all the designs I’ve seen look like they’d be very uncomfortable to wear.

  62. Christine Thompson-Lucas on January 27, 2013 6:58 pm

    I make alot of beaded jewelry.. would love this…

  63. Lucinda Reams on January 27, 2013 7:59 pm

    Thank you for this opportunity to win the Twist and Loop book. I have been knitting for years and this would be my first jewelry experience. I would love to win your book.

  64. Carmen on January 27, 2013 8:20 pm

    I haven’t done any wire or jewelry knitting – it’s my to-do list to try

  65. Teresa on January 28, 2013 6:35 am

    My mom knit with wire a million years ago (like say 50ish) but I never have. It should be on the knitter’s life list . . .

  66. Tracy Smith on January 28, 2013 6:47 am

    A combo of two of my most favorite activities!

  67. Fran McGee on January 28, 2013 11:11 am

    I have crocheted with wire, but have never knitted with it. Sounds like fun!!

  68. turtle on January 28, 2013 1:29 pm

    i have so wanted to try this but have yet to.. not sure why, i always have knitting needles in hand!

  69. Rhoda on January 28, 2013 3:50 pm

    I’ve knitted for fifty years, but this would be a first!

  70. Val F on January 28, 2013 4:50 pm

    I’d love to learn to knit jewelry! I imagine starting with red coated wire… mmmmm.

  71. geri actor on January 31, 2013 5:01 pm

    I now have some materials and up really looking forward to trying my hand at knitting with wire.

  72. Jolene Lew on February 4, 2013 10:36 am

    Wow. This is pretty cool! Have never tried before O:

  73. Susan on January 27, 2014 1:00 pm

    I love jewelry and knitting and have been wanting to try making it

  74. Andrea on January 27, 2014 1:08 pm

    I have knit bracelets with 28 guage wire..boy, it messes up your needles, use a cheap pair you don’t care about!

  75. Cay G on January 27, 2014 2:55 pm

    I would love to learn how to do this!

  76. Petra on January 27, 2014 3:18 pm

    Sounds incredibly interesting.

  77. Jody on January 27, 2014 4:15 pm

    I have knit with wire for jewelry, both with KnitKits kits and on my own. I’m looking for new designs so this would be great!

  78. anne on January 27, 2014 5:53 pm

    I have knit several dozen bracelets with wire and beads. The nicest one had swarovski beads. Too bad I dont wear it much, too much computing and bracelets dont go together well.

  79. Tanya on January 27, 2014 9:15 pm

    The knitted and crocheted jewelry I’ve seen is beautiful. I’d love to try it.

  80. Jane S. on January 28, 2014 11:16 am

    I’ve never knitted or crocheted with wire, but I think it looks amazing and I’d love to learn how to do it!

    I have crocheted with thread and beads and made some bracelets and necklaces, but the wire would be really interesting to work with. Thanks for the chance. :)

  81. eva on January 28, 2014 9:43 pm

    this looks like fun…would love to try with wire…thank you for this giveaway!

  82. Sarah on January 29, 2014 8:20 am
