stitch heaven barbara walkerOne of the first books I picked up when I started knitting again after college was Barbara G. Walker’s First Treasury of Knitting Patterns. This collection, which blossomed into four volumes, is full of stitch patterns from the simple to the sublime.

I would never give away my Walker set, but I do have a fun Walker-related giveaway this week. It’s a DVD called “Stitch Heaven Salutes Barbara G. Walker.”

This video collection includes 18 stitch-along patterns. There’s lots of lace and cables, if you’re into those sorts of things. The whole DVD runs three and a half hours and includes an interview with Walker (knitting didn’t come easily for her, which should give us all hope) and a piece with Laura Bryant of Prisim Yarn that offers an education in combining colors.

This DVD is fun and especially helpful for knitters who like to learn by watching but might not have a knitting instructor nearby at all hours.

Enter to win this giveaway by leaving a comment on this post before the end of the day Sunday, July 7. The winner will be picked at random. The DVD says it is regionless, so

    You can take a plain pattern and turn it into a unique one with her patterns. I have had hours of pleasure reading and re reading her books. I would love to win this.

    Thanks for the fun giveaway! This would be great inspiration to take my knitting skills to the next level.

    I’d love to give this to one of my daughters who struggles with patterns. She doesn’t live close to me so rings me for help. It’s quite tricky explaining stitches and patterns by phone!

    Please pick me. I love new books.

    This sounds like a wonderful DVD! Learning visually is always so much easier.

    Thank you for the chance to win. :)

    Count me in, please! don’t have any knitter friends so a chance to listen to Barbara Walker would be a real treat.

    Add me to the want list! I can picture myself with needles and yarn and actually spending the day with Barbara instead of just reading her? Sensational give away!

  20. Loretta on July 2, 2013 8:08 pm

    I am leaning how to knit and this DVD would be a great teaching tool. Would love to win this ! It would probably be better than learning from a book

    Sounds wonderful – I love lace and am just getting into cables.

  25. Mila on July 5, 2013 10:39 am

    This would be perfect as I’m a new knitter… Thanks.

  26. Robin Peoples on July 5, 2013 12:44 pm

    This would be wonderful to have. It is much easier to learn if I can see how to do the stitches.
