Giveaway: Learn to Knit, Love to Knit

learn to knit love to knit giveaway

Congratulations to number 16, Kim!

Remember the other day when I said I was going to catch up on giveaways? It was a total lie.

I’m a few weeks behind on picking winners, and even longer behind on mailing things, so please be patient and I’ll get to it as I can, I promise. The last weeks before a book deadline are crazy, and it’s summer and the preschooler is home and I can’t promise being anywhere near the post office any time soon. But I want to get rid of these books as much as you all want to get them, so I will do the best I can as soon as I can. OK?

This week’s giveaway is a fun one for newer knitters who want to increase their skills. Learn to Knit, Love to Knit by Anna Wilkinson includes some basic instructions on how to knit, a section of pretty basic projects (the “learn to knit” patterns) and a section of more advanced projects (“love to knit”).

There’s lots of colorwork, lace, textured knitting and fun embellishments, and a range of projects from the simple armwarmers shown on the cover to a dramatic tartan top, a lace collar and a basic round-neck raglan sweater.

If you like fashionable knits that will help you build your skills, this book is a good one.

To enter to win, leave a comment on this post before the end of the day Sunday, July 27. Why don’t you tell me what’s on your knitting needles right now? I have a sweater sleeve and a sock as I work on finishing up projects for the book (there will be more later in the week).

Thanks for visiting, commenting and sharing, and for your patience in this super-busy time!

    I am still a newbie knitter (at 52 years old) but enjoy it to relax in the car or in front of the TV. At the moment, I am knitting a scarf for my son – size 15 needles and bulky wool. It’s almost instant gratification. I would love to win this book! Thank you for the giveaway.

    I have a sweater sleeve as well on one set of needles I also have a shawl on another pair then an afghan for my nephew.

    I am a new knitter and am actually just learning the seed stich so on my needles is a practice swatch for seed stitch. I did make a garter stitch and lace scarf though already so 1 project down!

    Ooh that looks like fun! I’m working – slowly – on a short-sleeve cardigan. It’s a pattern a friend made and I’m testing it for her.

  5. Teresa Knittingdancer says

    I have 3 different shawls on my needles right now but they are all of my wips. Everything else is finished.

  6. Regina says

    I am new at this -so big long rectangles (shawls/scarves) are as far as I have gotten.

  7. Bobbi says

    I’m still trying to get the hang of knitting… I started as a crocheter, so the mechanics if knitting are a bit difficult! I’d love to find some good inspiration to keep me trying!

    I am knitting my first hat. I would definitely like to build my knitting skills as a beginner.

  9. Linda Rumsey says

    I have a sock whilst I wait for it to cool down enough to finish knitting a heavy wool blanket.

    This sounds perfect for me! I am right at that transitional stage! Currently, I am knitting a Cowl to match a hat I made earlier in the year. Fingers crossed!
