knit new yorkI kind of love the idea of knitting yourself a souvenir from somewhere you’ve loved on a vacation or some place you just really like. If you’re a fan of New York City and knitting, you’re going to love this giveaway!

This one is for a copy of Knit New York by Emma King. It’s a super cute little book with 10 patterns inspired by the Big Apple — including a big apple. There’s a stitched Statue of Liberty, a wooly Flatiron Building, a fuzzy fire hydrant and more.

The book itself would be a good gift for a knitter who loves the city, or stitch up some tourist attractions for your Gotham-loving pal.

To enter to win this book, leave a comment below before the end of the day next Thursday, also known as Feb. 21. This week’s question, if you want to answer it: if you could knit any building our tourist attraction in the world, what would you choose? For some reason the first thing that pops into my head is the Grand Canyon, which would not be all that easy to knit!

    The pyramids would be fantastic. I’m redoing because I did not realize someone already said what I picked.

    What a fun book! I’m from Alaska so I’ll say Mt. McKinley, for us old timers, also known as Denali.

    Thank you for a neat giveaway and a chance to win.

    Looks like a fun book! I love NYC and have spent so much time there since I was a little girl! I think it would be fun to try to knit the space needle!

  9. KateMet on February 14, 2013 10:57 pm

    Somebody needs to knit Stonehenge. I have a dear sister-in-law who lives in “the City,” and it would be awesome to knit her a local landmark for a gift!

  10. Jodi DeGeorge on February 15, 2013 1:10 am

    I would love to knit a huge redwood tree! I think it’s possible.

  11. Jaan L of Tx on February 15, 2013 1:24 am

    I’d love to knit Whitby Abbey in all its Gothic beauty!

  14. wendy on February 15, 2013 3:19 am

    I think the Eiffel Tower would look great – but I think you’d have to crochet it rather than knit it! (not that I’m claiming I could…)

  15. Aubrey on February 15, 2013 3:57 am

    I’d like to knit the famous cherry trees that bloom around Washington DC in the spring.

  19. Ann Devine on February 15, 2013 6:19 am

    What a fun book! I’d love to se L’Arc De Triomphe and Notre-Dame de Paris, as long as we’re talking about Paris!

  26. jonquil on February 15, 2013 8:33 am

    Monets’ Gardens…so many possibilities in colours, blooms, waters…..

  27. Teresa on February 15, 2013 8:55 am

    Oh – Monet’s Gardens are a great idea jonquil!!!

    I think the Doge’s Palace in Venice but I’m not at all sure that it would translate to yarn . . .

  28. Lois on February 15, 2013 8:56 am

  33. Claire C on February 15, 2013 1:14 pm

    I have always wanted to go to New York, I know if I knit it I will want to go even more

  39. Catherine Z on February 15, 2013 10:30 pm

    I’d knit the Redwood National and State Parks (if that takes me 3,000 years, at least some of those trees would still be around to see it!)
