mom and me knits

Congratulations to Susan for winning this book!

In honor of Mother’s Day I thought it would be fun to give away a book that has something to do with moms, so here it is. Mom & Me Knits by Stefanie Japel is a cute book full of projects for moms and their little girls.

But these are not matchy-matchy projects that neither mom nor daughter will enjoy. They’re actually not even all that girly, though there is a bit of lace involved in some of the projects. The projects are sometimes the same other than one having long sleeves and the other short; other times the projects coordinate by using similar designs with a bit of a twist.

This is a fun book for moms who want to knit something for themselves and their daughter maybe for some fun family pictures, or for anyone who has a little girl in their life they might like to dress like.

I have one copy of this book to give away to one person who leaves a comment on this post before the end of the day next Sunday, May 11. If you have a story about moms and knitting (my mom and grandma taught me how to knit!) I’d love to hear it.

Thanks for visiting, commenting and sharing, and good luck!

    I’ve been wanting to learn how to knit so much! I need all the help that I can get! Thank you!

    I tried to leave a comment about how I’ve been wanting to learn how to knit, but something may have went awry. lol

    I really improved my knitting skills while knitting for my friends daughter, she’s an awesome Mum despite the struggles with loosing her sight.

    My mum taught to me the basics of how to knit then i got taught more at primary school. But no matter how much i practised i never got as quick as her. She was the fastest knitted i know. Sadly she is no longer with us but i carry on the legacy of knitting, maybe not as fast but always with love. i now knit regularly for the local Timebank.i love making people happy with garments i knit specially for them.

    My mother in law knit me beautiful things from a lovely sweater (when we were engaged) to amazing afghans for us and blankets for our babies. Only now do I realize what a labor of love it was… because now I’m knitting for our kids/grandkids. Thanks Mom!

    Our Mom was not a knitter, but very creative in the kitchen. I guess I took that creativity with me in my knitting. Oh… how I miss her. Thanks for the giveaway.

    My maternal grandma taught me how to knit and crochet at a very young age. I would watch her make barbie clothes and donate them(of course us granddaughters got some too) and I always dreamed on making them. Every visitishe helped me make a different project. I still do both, and enjoy showing her my latest project.

    My mother does not knit and have never knit. I have tried to teach her but she was busy being a mother to 7 and now a grandmother to 12.

    Fond memories of my mom and I doing crafts while sipping cafe. I didn’t know she was a knitter until her last years of life!

    My mum was a brilliant knitter – so fast – but it was my paternal grandma who taught me to knit. Now I knit in a really strange way with my right needle stuck under my arm!!

  12. Judy Aiken on May 6, 2014 5:50 am

    My mom was a wonderful knitter. always had something on the needles, from argyle socks for dad to afghans. I always marveled at how she could knit and watch tv without looking at her work. I now find myself doing the same thing.

    I had been sick with Mono and in bed for quite a time knitting a ski sweater as a child. I was so boarded with the arms I begged my mother to knit some. She kept saying “no, the gauge will be different!” I had no clue what gauge was so I kept hammering at her like a teenage daughter can…she finally caved! I love to just take that sweater out, now, 55 years later, to see the 6 inch band my mother knit for me. It always makes me smile!

    My mom was not a knitter but always admired hand knit items. Her love of this actually inspired me to knit and crochet. She was so proud of me.

  15. Karey on May 6, 2014 11:41 am

    I love making blankets for all the new moms in my life! I even offer to teach them how to knit if they would like!

  16. Kathy Kindt on May 6, 2014 12:00 pm

    My mom taught me to knit many years ago and I never really started knitting until just a few years before she passed away. My mom knit us many dishcloths and I still have the basket of yarn with her needles in a dishcloth that wasen’t yet finished. Thank you mom for teaching me to knit all those years ago I only wish she was still here to see some of the projects I completed. I would love to win the book. Thank you

    My grandmother taught me to knit and all I made for ages was garter stitch squares. Useless garter stitch squares. Then my mom taught me to purl and I made a pair of mittens. They were with the ugliest, clown barf variegated acrylic and I was purling wrong so every stitch was twisted. Regardless, my mom wore those mittens for years to shovel snow. Yikes!

    The friend who taught my mom to knit also taught me to knit at 4 years old. My mom encouraged and guided me as I got older.

  19. Rose S. on May 6, 2014 12:27 pm

    My Mom did not knit but she was the most beautiful creative person in every other way. She could darn socks in her sleep, I swear. I love to knit and gift most of my knits and this book looks like lots of fun.

    My mum didn’t knit but she did beautiful embroidery work. I learned to knit in school at the age of 6 – over 50 years ago, time flies when you’re knitting!

  21. Roylene Neal on May 6, 2014 1:32 pm

    My mom was a crocheter and made beautiful tablecloths and doilies and taught me how to crochet when I was 5. She didn’t knit so I taught myself to knit using books and then taught my sister. I knit and crochet for my children and their children.

  22. OHSue on May 6, 2014 1:41 pm

    I am the only knitter in my family as far as I know, but would love to pass on the tradition someday.

  23. Mary Mac on May 6, 2014 4:42 pm

    My mother taught me how to knit and I still have the barbie doll clothes (dress,coat,hat) she knitted me from over 40 years ago.

  24. Diana on May 7, 2014 3:42 am

    My mom is a crocheter. When I started crocheting, my mom went digging and found crochet thread in her stash for me to use. I now have a healthy yarn stash of my own. I taught myself to knit and my mom is always impressed with my creations.

  25. Linda Rumsey on May 7, 2014 5:09 am

    My mom taught me to knit and I have since taught my teenage daughter. It’s great that we all share a hobby!

    At the beginning of winter, I knit a pair of house slippers for my daughter.
    At the beginning of summer, my daughter asked me to knit house slippers for all of her friends. I thought it strange that they all wanted to wear wool house slippers in the summer until I found out that they used the house slippers to “skate” around our huge living room floor every day of their summer vacation.

  27. Cindy Moore on May 7, 2014 12:03 pm

    For me it would be “grandma” and “me”.

  28. Susan Samuel on May 7, 2014 3:51 pm

    My mum (no longer with us) was left handed and found it very hard to knit and everyone made fun of her style every time she tried. As a result she was determined that I (being left handed as well) would learn to knit properly so she left it to my dad, who was an amazing knitter. Thanks mum.

  29. Della Martin on May 8, 2014 12:23 pm

    I (grandma) would be interested in knitting some things for my daughter in law and granddaughters.

  30. Tammy Kulcsar on May 8, 2014 9:17 pm

    Would love to win a copy. Currently waiting on the birth if our first child and would love to start off my knitting childrens collection.

  31. Debbie S on May 9, 2014 6:46 pm

    My dear, sweet mother-in-law taught me to knit soon after I was married. She gave me a gift that has been enjoyed ever since. What a wonderful lady!

  32. Sarah Luder on May 10, 2014 1:53 am

    I love to knit but the person who actually got me into it was my sister. I’m still kind of a beginner so I try to read a lot of different pattern books and such.

  33. Kelly on May 11, 2014 3:07 pm

    It’s kind of funny because my Mom doesn’t know how to knit but she wants to learn. Well, I taught myself how to knit by simply watching youtube videos and now she would like for me to teach her, usually it’s the other way around, hee hee. :) :)
