warm books giveawayI am one of those people who is cold all the time. So winter is especially unpleasant for me, even though I live in the south. Even inside the house I often can be found in layer upon layer of clothing, under a blanket, muttering about the cold.

I have decided I just need to knit myself a whole bunch of wool sweaters and socks and then never take them off all winter long.

If you’re a cold-natured person or just live in a colder climate than I do, this giveaway is for you. It’s three different books on the theme of knits to keep you warm:

(Links are to reviews on About.)

To get your hands on these fun books, leave a comment below before the end of the day next Monday (that’s Jan. 14, 2013). To keep with the cold and warm theme, why don’t you tell me whether you tend to be cold-natured or warm-natured? Or share your favorite way to get warm.

Thanks for entering and good luck!

    Would love to have the knitting books!

  2. Kathrynn on January 7, 2013 11:43 am

    I am cold all winter long. The way I get warm is wearing sweats at home.

  3. Kathy Pavlica on January 7, 2013 11:49 am

    Nothing warms my heart like a new knitting book. Knitted hats,gloves,sweaters,and socks take care of the rest of me.

  4. Maryanne on January 7, 2013 11:54 am

    I think I don’t regulate temperature well, because I’m hot in summer but cold in winter. Good thing I can knit plenty of woolies for the cold!

  5. Naulayne on January 7, 2013 11:57 am

    I am usually cold in the winter and in the air conditioning in the summer too! That is why my first knitting project for this year is a pair of purple socks!

  6. Christine Thompson-Lucas on January 7, 2013 12:04 pm

    I hate winter now that I am older. I live on a farm on top of the mountains located Greenbrier County, in Wonderful West Virginia.. In the winter I knit blankets or crochet and keep warm while making these to sell at the farmers market in the spring.. We are at 3000 elevation so it snows here first before the lowlands get snow.. Happy New Year everyone…

  7. Liz on January 7, 2013 12:08 pm

    I enjoy knitting winter woollies!

  8. Isabelle on January 7, 2013 12:10 pm

    I love cold weather and wearing warm scarves and jumper ! Also winter is the best season for hot chocolate !

  9. Ann Devine on January 7, 2013 12:21 pm

    Oh yeah, gotta have the woolies for cold weather! I’ve just grafted the toe on Sock 1 of a pair, and already have Sock 2 well underway, and need to think about a sweater too! Plus some mitts, and another shawl or two…you get the idea.

  10. Deb Kegelmeyer on January 7, 2013 12:27 pm

    I am cold natured. I will hike southern Utah in July without a complaint and whine in 65 degree temps. A nice fluffy sweater is my favorite way to keep warm.

  11. Linda DeJesus on January 7, 2013 12:44 pm

    Living in Wisconsin means I am cold all winter long….I keep warm by snuggling with my hubby (he is furnace!) and I love when he gets a fire going in the fireplace! Ahhh…the warmth!! I am always knitting for others, so I suppose it is high time I find something to knit for myself!! Hope I win!! Thanks! Smiles – Linda

  12. Sheila on January 7, 2013 1:11 pm

    I tend to feel warmer than most people, but the Oregon winters are so damp that I find it difficult to get rid of that chilly feeling.

  13. Connie Beard on January 7, 2013 1:25 pm

    I love to drink hot chocolate to warm up.

  14. Becki on January 7, 2013 1:34 pm

    Whether it is 100 degrees outside or drizzling freezing rain (I live in Texas, sometimes this could describe one day!) my class room is freezing. I have a closet full of shawls to wrap up in or loan to shivering students.

  15. Kathy S. on January 7, 2013 1:59 pm

    I love sitting by the fire in “my” chair, knitting away. It’s so cozy and comfy.

  16. Sheriva on January 7, 2013 2:06 pm

    I am born in the first week of January. For years I was always cold. But, I have begun to grow older….hot flashes have removed the feeling of cold….

  17. Maureen on January 7, 2013 2:12 pm

    I live in an area that is supposed to get snow when it is Winter but so far this year we have not. I has been chilly at times but not too bad. I actually prefer it not hot. I was at one time on a blood thinner for a few years and it wrecked my body temperature ever since.

  18. Andrea on January 7, 2013 2:17 pm

    After growing up in Michigan and now having recently moved to North Dakota I consider myself lucky to run a little warm. If I need to I can throw on a sweater, make myself some tea, and wrap myself up in a blanket.

  19. crystal on January 7, 2013 2:21 pm

    I enjoy the cold because i love wearing swearers and socks. I’ve just started knitting so i can’t wait to start making my own warm clothing.

  20. Heather on January 7, 2013 2:39 pm

    I was born and raised in New England but somehow that did not make me tolerant of the cold. I like to say I get cold on Labor Day and start to thaw out around 4th of July:)

  21. Vernell on January 7, 2013 2:44 pm

    I am always cold. I sit with a space heater pointed at me both at home and at work. My workmates are always telling me how warm my office is because I usually have bot the baseboard heater and my space heater on lol!!

  22. maura on January 7, 2013 3:44 pm

    ooooh I hate winter! I pile on the down comforters and flannel sheets. we love to sit curled on the couch in a cuddle puddle , dogs cats and humans. what a wonderful giveaway.
    maura

  23. Meg on January 7, 2013 3:59 pm

    I used to be cold all the time but now I run warm – except when I am so cold that I can’t warm up! So, I need to have warm things around at all times so I can take them on and off:-)

  24. Connie K. on January 7, 2013 4:26 pm

    I tend to be warm-blooded – but since I’ve turned 50 I always have cold feet.

  25. Jeanne on January 7, 2013 4:30 pm

    Like many others my age, I used to be coldish and now I’m warmish. I have always loved the colder weather so I can wear my sweaters, socks and gloves. I also like to knit in the winter – no sweating on my needles.

  26. Stephanie E on January 7, 2013 5:32 pm

    I prefer the cold unless I am sick. Then I want warm everything, warm drinks, blankets, sweaters, and slippers. This bonanza giveaway makes me so giddy I suppose I should mention that the best way for me to get warm is a big mug of hot chocolate and a blanket while watching a chick flick.

  27. Stacie.Make.Do. on January 7, 2013 6:44 pm

    When I was younger I was rather warm-blooded. My mother would marvel at how I could walk around the house in winter without socks and still have warm toes! Now that I spend most of my time indoors and I get less exercise, I tend to feel chilly a lot of the time.

    I have noticed I do better if I can make myself get outdoors. Exercise helps immensely, and coming in from the cold always makes me feel warmer for a long while after.
    Cuddling up with a microwaved rice pad helps, too :) not to mention woolen knits.

  28. Mary Moore on January 7, 2013 6:55 pm

    Snow is predicted for Wed.thru Sun., My way to get warm is soaking in my footed tub. Haven’t figured out how to sew there, so have a small clipboard for a Sudoku puzzle. Am trying to learn to wear scarves, they tell that helps.

  29. Mylyne on January 7, 2013 7:06 pm

    I’m warm-natured, but have many cold-natured friends for whom I can knit.

  30. Candy on January 7, 2013 7:23 pm

    Cold natured… My husband has given me two things to keep me warm so that I can knit. One is a rectagular blanket with a neck cutout in the middle and it surrounds me but my arms are free. The other is a fleece suit I step into fully dressed and it zips closed. I kinda look like a penguin but I am warm with my arms free to knit!

  31. KittenWithAWhiplash on January 7, 2013 7:31 pm

    My apartment is unheated, and just an hour a day of one little space heater would double my utility bill without doing much good at ground level, since I have 12 ft. ceilings. So I sit in the cold, prefering to put on my handknit sweaters, cowls, and hats; doulble up on sweatpants and socks, sitting under handknit blankets and drinking lots of warm or warming liquids. I’ve only given in to the space heater once so far this winter, when my fingers got too cold to open the brandy bottle!

  32. Zoe Bigley on January 7, 2013 8:25 pm

    I live in Maine and the winters are cold but I love it here :) What I do enjoy doing is knitting wool items for the church Summerfest which raises monies to be donated to local charities. We (ladies of the Organ Society) all share patterns/books and I would love to share your patterns. Thank you, Always, Zoe

  33. Sandra C on January 7, 2013 8:44 pm

    I’m almost always cold, especially my feet. I try to warm up by bundling up, running the heater, and getting cozy under the covers.

    Thanks for the chance to win!

  34. Jackeline D. on January 7, 2013 11:38 pm

    I moved from Orlando FL to Seattle WA last year and I am FREEZING this time of year. What keeps me warm is 3 pairs of socks, layering my clothes and never staying put.

  35. Nancy D on January 7, 2013 11:44 pm

    Always cold feet and hands in the winter! But warm heart ( :

  36. MelodyJ on January 8, 2013 12:58 am

    I love hot chocolate to keep me warm in winter.

  37. Galatina on January 8, 2013 1:55 am

    I have bad circulation so am usually cold. However, I do love cold frosty winter mornings & wearing my knits!

  38. Kim Reid on January 8, 2013 2:04 am

    I am cold most of the time, especially my feet and hands!
    Thanks :)

  39. Linda Rumsey on January 8, 2013 2:07 am

    I feel the cold, so I sit under a knitted blanket and knit lots of woolly jumpers, socks, hats and scarves. They’re usually all in different colours and patterns. One of these days I’ll knit matching sets!

  40. Ofelia on January 8, 2013 2:57 am

    I’m cold everywhere!! sometimes my hands and feet hurt from cold.
    Thank you for the giveaway.

  41. Robin D on January 8, 2013 3:40 am

    I freeze all year long. I am the only person who in the summer carries a sweater.
    In the winter I always have an afghan on my lap while I am wearing my wool sweater and knitting!

  42. Elaine on January 8, 2013 4:13 am

    I live in Sweden and it´s a cold country.
    We need warm clothes in the winter.
    I have a lot of wool yarn and need inspiration to knit warm clothes.

  43. Hayley on January 8, 2013 4:46 am

    I am definitely a cold person!! I have bad circulation so find the cold seizes me up completely. Although I shouldnt complain, our Australian winters must be relatively mild in comparison to other corners of the globe!

  44. Patty Manders on January 8, 2013 4:53 am

    I grew up in upstate NY and am a transplant to New England so snow and cold are par for the course. As a teen I suffered frost bite:( But then I met my Canadian DH–He taught me about the virtures of warm woolen socks. This past Christmas my California sister got me the thickest warmest socks ever–haven’t taken ‘em off yet. Probably should wash ‘em soon but when it’s 15 below zero is not the right moment!

  46. Sue Drzewiecki on January 8, 2013 5:25 am

    I am a crossing guard at my kids’ school and am cold ALL the time! Layer Layer Layer is my motto! And wear lots of hand knitted stuff!

  47. jonquil on January 8, 2013 5:27 am

    I’m cold natured. Summer humidity & heat makes it difficult to breathe. Even though I prefer the cold, I notice that I get chilled easier these days. I take the adage of ‘dress in layers’ to heart! I start with a thin layer closest to my skin & add sweaters.

  48. Barb on January 8, 2013 5:36 am

    I agree, I am cold all winter….love looking at new patterns!

  49. Frances Welden on January 8, 2013 5:46 am

    I have become one of those little old ladies who bring a sweater everywhere! I can handle to cold winter-I dress for it. But those restaurants, movie theaters, and hospitals freeze me everytime!

  50. BarbR on January 8, 2013 5:49 am

    Have lost 45 pounds and have a few more togo. Never ever bothered by cold before! Now its wool sox all day and to bed. Multiple layers. We only used 60 gal ofheating oil last year…heat with wood stove and i knit very close by. Somewhere it is summer!

  51. Margay on January 8, 2013 6:18 am

    I love knitting for my daughters and their friends, so I would really love to have these books – and the excuse to knit more!

  52. martine houle on January 8, 2013 6:21 am

    Quel beau livre, j’aimerai bien les gagnés.

  53. Lynn on January 8, 2013 6:22 am

    I’m cold all the time too. I am picking up my knitting again and have just completed three pairs of warm woolly hand-knit socks. They are the best for keeping my feet warm!

  54. jan on January 8, 2013 6:27 am

    I have been getting free patterns from the internet but would love to own a real knitting book where I could sit and enjoy the pictures plus make beautiful clothing.

  55. Kelly r on January 8, 2013 6:29 am

    Recently learned to knit! Would love some books for inspiration

  56. Sarah on January 8, 2013 6:39 am

    As long as I have some hot tea and warm socks I am usually happy in if it is cold. Especially if they are socks I have made myself!

  57. Judy on January 8, 2013 6:43 am

    I used to be cold natured when I was younger, but now that I’m middle aged I’m warm natured. I often think being cold natured is better, you can put on a sweater or cover in a blanket

  58. Mary Mac on January 8, 2013 6:48 am

    I am cold natured. I also wear sweats or a sweater in the house at all times because my darling husband keeps it a balmy 68degrees.

  59. Jeanne on January 8, 2013 7:01 am

    I am able to regulate my temperature very well so wear sweaters even in the summer, working in an air conditioned office makes this a lot easier. Would love to knit some of these great patterns.

  60. Patricia P. Hall on January 8, 2013 7:04 am

    I am super cold in my home in the winter due to no insulation (1920 era cottage) and we keep the thermostat low. But my work has also become cold so I suffer there, too (maybe they are keeping the thermostat low). I do bundle up in sweatshirt and sherpa lined slippers at home. At work I just layer up. Would love to knit some warm additions to the wardrobe!!

  61. Emily on January 8, 2013 7:14 am

    I am so cold right now, I would love to have more knitted items to kee me warm! The books would certainly be a big help in that department. Then I’d just have to find the time…

  62. Jessie on January 8, 2013 7:26 am

    I hibernate in winter. And wear lots and lots of my knitted things. I spend enormous amounts of time knitting warm things in winter. Just working on a pair of wool socks make me feel warmer. I’m totally a summer creature.

  63. Marta on January 8, 2013 7:29 am

    I am just learning to knit so I will be cold until I can finish my first project! Would love more ideas and inpiration.

  64. Patricia on January 8, 2013 7:32 am

    I don’t get cold that easily,but my daughter, mom and sister are like icicles all the time. I’m always making or buying things to keep them warm.

  65. redcarousellion on January 8, 2013 7:35 am

    I don’t feel the cold, generally. However, the heat makes me sick. I always have a fan or the AC on year round

  66. Joan on January 8, 2013 7:37 am

    Hate to admit it, but an electric throw takes the bone-chilling cold away!

  67. Denise Malbrough on January 8, 2013 7:43 am

    I’m at that age where it can be 40 degrees outside and I am burning up! My daughter, on the other hand, is cold-natured. She learned to knit last year and has been working on socks, but wants to knit more wearables. I hope I win so she can knit to her cold little hearts’ content! Thanks for the chance!

  68. zaara khan on January 8, 2013 7:45 am

    awesome giveaway! hope to win!

  69. Judith (from Israel) on January 8, 2013 7:51 am

    I suffer terribly from the cold all winter long and drinks lots of hot tea to keep warm.

  70. Marijo Hinton on January 8, 2013 7:54 am

    I am “old and cold” and love to knit – sitting and knitting without quitting, while snowflakes fill me with chill…that pretty well says it all. and I would love to have those books!!!! (I’ve run out of rhyming words).

  71. Izy Anderson on January 8, 2013 7:57 am

    I love to stay warm by wearing a soft yummy scarf all the time. A woman can NEVER have too many scarfs! Trust me I am still trying!

  72. DeeAnn S on January 8, 2013 8:17 am

    During the winter months I tend to be one of those people who is cold all the time. Getting dressed in the morning is almost like a game to see how many layers I can put on before I can’t bend my arms anymore! lol Would love these books. Thanks.

  73. kim b on January 8, 2013 8:45 am

    What a great gift giving set of books. So many people in my life could be kept warm from the items in these books. Thank you for the chance to win.

  74. Elena T on January 8, 2013 8:52 am

    I like cold weather just so I can wear sweaters :) But as I get older the cold is harder on my hands and feet, so I live in wool socks all winter and have several pairs of fingerless mitts and gloves.

  75. Sara on January 8, 2013 9:03 am

    Someone above said they are too hot in the summer and too cold in winter, and I am the same way. Not a good extreme weather person. Perhaps Hawaii is for me! Until then, I like to warm up with cozy layers and hot drinks. I’m sitting in my office complete with sweater, fingerless gloves, big socks, and a warm cup of coffee. A lap blanket is waiting for after my coffee is gone and I need reinforcements. :)

  76. geri actor on January 8, 2013 9:52 am

    Often cold, except when I have a hot flash!

    Always dressing in layers ;-).

  77. Ann on January 8, 2013 9:57 am

    I’m cold all year long since my desk is under the vents at work! I keep thick sweater there all year round… so this would help increase my rotation of warm things!

  78. Karey on January 8, 2013 10:19 am

    I’m definitely a warm weather person! I think I don’t thaw out until spring! So bring on the warm knits!!

  79. Jo on January 8, 2013 10:51 am

    I just moved from southern California to Utah and it’s 10 below in the morning and doesn’t get much warmer during the day. I get cold if it’s below 70 degrees. I need to knit faster now.

  80. Claire C on January 8, 2013 10:53 am

    I’m a very cold morsel I really do not like being cold. I am so much happier in the nice warm sun, something I am beginning to forget what that looks like with all the rain we have been getting

  81. Sandi S. on January 8, 2013 11:03 am

    Am always on the look out for great new knitting books and free is even better.

  82. Sandy Lewis on January 8, 2013 11:30 am

    I’m lucky in a way – I’m not cold all the time. So – I knit for those that are! I’ve got my fingers crossed. Thank you for the chance to win these great books!

  83. Emily on January 8, 2013 11:59 am

    I tend to get cold easily too. Once I am at a certain point the only way I warm up is in a hot bath. So I tend to spend a lot of winter soaking, lol

  84. Charlene Anderson on January 8, 2013 12:31 pm

    It was -23 F (yes, minus 23) here yesterday. I need all the warm I can get!

  85. joyce on January 8, 2013 1:03 pm

    I definitely do not like the cold. I can be found reading a book in the winter with gloves on. My feet and hands are the coldest. I wear at least 2 layers on my feet.

  86. Amanda on January 8, 2013 1:17 pm

    I’d be super happy to own these.

  87. Laura on January 8, 2013 1:56 pm

    My hands are always freezing, but you know what they say: “cold hands, warm heart!”

  88. Knitting Teresa on January 8, 2013 2:09 pm

    I am mostly warm natured but when I get cold I like to fix a cup of hot chocolate and snuggle under a warm throw or blanket on the couch.

  89. Linda on January 8, 2013 2:32 pm

    HI! WE LIVE IN THE ROCKY MTS,SO I LOVE A GOOD HOT CUP OF APPLE CIDER WHEN I’M CHILLED!
    THANKS FOR SHARING A WONDERFUL GIVEAWAY!

  90. helena frontini on January 8, 2013 2:53 pm

    Warm sweats and a long knitted project is fantastic to keep warm.

  91. Stephanie on January 8, 2013 3:15 pm

    I am cold. Always. The other day I was so cold that I cast on 3 different projects just so I would have some warmth to look forward to (and I’ve finished 2 of them).

    thanks for the giveaway!!

  92. Megan Milliken on January 8, 2013 3:22 pm

    Oh I’m always freezing too! I went so far, when I lived on the East Coast, to buy XL little boys footie pjs from Target. Best pjs ever!

  93. Mary Anne on January 8, 2013 3:24 pm

    Cold. Definitely. Altho – to be perfectly honest, the advent of mental-pause has upped my internal temps a few degrees. Great looking books – thanks for a chance to win!

  94. turtle on January 8, 2013 4:11 pm

    Lol, I am nicknamed The ICE Queen in our household ….go figure! :)

  95. Wendy B on January 8, 2013 4:13 pm

    Definitely prefer it cold! Easy to get warmer…than cooler! And i love wool so I would never be without cold temps!

  98. suztats on January 8, 2013 4:50 pm

    I’m cold most of the time, except maybe in the heat of summer when it’s over 80F.
    The way I figure it, it’s better to have the cold since one can layer clothing, blankets, hats and furry slippers over warm socks. If it’s hot, there’s only so much one can take off! lol

  99. Librada on January 8, 2013 4:58 pm

    I’m always cold and keep wraps, shawls and scarves around to keep me warm.

  100. Karen B on January 8, 2013 5:01 pm

    I’m with you!! I always have layers on and winter is the only way to keep me from going OUT shopping. I stay home with my sweats and blankie and order my fibers online so I can keep knitting more warm things to wear!.

  101. Becky PS on January 8, 2013 5:24 pm

    I love the cold and hate hot weather! But I do love me some woolie sweaters, hats and socks too.

    Thanks for the chance to win!

  102. Karen Murphy on January 8, 2013 5:53 pm

    I would love a new knitting book. I used to always be cold, but now that I am older, I am usually just fine with a sweatshirt in the winter. I like to turn on my electric blanket before I go to bed, and then turn it off when I get in, just enough to warm up the sheets.

  103. chris on January 8, 2013 7:08 pm

    I am truly cold hands but a warm heart! thank you!

  104. lee on January 8, 2013 7:12 pm

    What great books! I am a warm hearted lover of knits! thanks!

  105. Theresa on January 8, 2013 8:23 pm

    I am always cold, esp the fingertips and toes!!!

  106. Rhoda on January 8, 2013 10:39 pm

    Love knitting…hate winter!

  107. Melissa on January 8, 2013 11:38 pm

    We just relocated to Chicago, IL from Houston, Texas this past August. I can’t knit fast enough for all the warmies I never knew I needed! The warm knits give away sounds very inviting to me.
    Thanks so much! Hope you stay warm this winter too.

  108. Pat on January 9, 2013 12:04 am

    I like to warm up with a cat on my lap.

  109. Nati on January 9, 2013 2:13 am

    I am generally cold and we love in a cold place…so love ,y sweaters and to knit at night so what I am working on keeps my lap warm! Thanks for the chance to win

  110. Flo L on January 9, 2013 4:03 am

    I warm up on cold nights by knitting in front of a fire. These books look amazing!

  111. Pat morris on January 9, 2013 6:21 am

    I can’t stand to be cold, but I also can’t stand to have the heat up high. So I wear lots of layers to keep me warm.

  112. Mirja on January 9, 2013 6:34 am

    Awesome giveaway! I am usually warm, but need a little help to keep my toes warm!

  113. Teresa on January 9, 2013 7:11 am

    Cold natured . . . live in the south, but keep thinking I might need to move to the equator. I love the colorwork on the cover of Warm Little Knits!

  114. Marilyn Coombs on January 9, 2013 7:57 am

    Hi! While I like looking at the snow I prefer to look at it from inside my warm apartment.

  115. Rebeckah on January 9, 2013 10:39 am

    Un fortionatly my bady does not like to be in the cold. my fingers and toes freeze very quickly.

  116. maureen on January 9, 2013 11:16 am

    I live in the rocky mountains of alberta it is essential to have warm things and there is nothing better than hand knit things I tend to be cold grenerally so one of the nicest things for me has been the discovery of fingerless mitts after all if your hands are always warm and snuggly your whole body feels warm

  117. Jackie Maresca on January 9, 2013 11:29 am

    Lately to day warm, I’ve been buying men’s work socks. Walgreens has had the best so far!

  118. Eileen on January 9, 2013 11:51 am

    So you’d think living in south Florida would be warm all the time. Nope – too much air conditioning. I’m wearing turtlenecks and sweaters to work when it 80 degrees outside!
    Need those warm projects:)

  119. Donna K on January 9, 2013 1:56 pm

    I go from cold to warm to hot hearted !! At 50 plus (you ladies know what I am takling about!). I have several crocheted scarves that I plan to donate to Hurrcaine Sandy victims here in Brooklyn, New York. I learned how to knit when I was a child, but now at 50 + I have a renewed interest in crafts, including knitting, but have forgotten how to. As the saying goes, “Once you learn how to ride a bike, you will never forget”. I believe the same will hold true with my submerged knitting skills. Hopefully I would be able to make some knitting items to donate also. Thank you for your generous offer to your readers.

  120. melody on January 9, 2013 4:41 pm

    I am definitely cold-natured, I love to get warm in a nice cozy quilt or afghan, sitting by the fire with an snuggly kitty on my lap…I would love to win the knitting books…I am an avid cross stitcher, embroiderer and quilter and want to learn knitting and crochet…one of my goals for 2013…thanks for the great giveaway!

  121. Jane on January 9, 2013 6:43 pm

    I don’t discriminate; I’m cold in the summertime too (grocery stores and restaurants go a little nutty with air conditioning,) so I would happily don knitwear in July!

  122. jamie on January 9, 2013 6:55 pm

    I’m always cold…my husband likes to tell people that I’m cold ever if its 80 outside ( which is a little true) . I just finish knitting my first sweater for my sister for Christmas ( took me like 4 months but I think it looks great!) And I can’t wait to make a new sweater for myself!

  123. Sue J on January 9, 2013 7:16 pm

    I used to always be warm, but the last few years, I find I am cold more often than not. Guess I really need these these book to make something to keep warm!

  124. bladerunner5 on January 10, 2013 6:26 am

    I just plain love blankets. I’d rather leave the window open in winter and pile on the blankets than turn up the heat. Of course, under all those blankets, I can do the dishes or housework either. Gee, darn, rats! ;)

  125. Suzanne K on January 10, 2013 7:48 am

    I am always cold and really do not enjoy the winter months. I just picked up my knitting needles for the first time in seven years and I’m working on a neck warmer to keep me warm while walking the dogs.

  126. pat s on January 10, 2013 8:54 am

    love new knitting books!!
    thanks!

  127. Dinonut on January 10, 2013 9:02 am

    Boy, am I cold all the time–even when it’s 100+ degrees every day in the summer (all seven months of it here in AZ) I wear long sleeves and always keep spare sweaters and jackets in the car for venturing into cold stores and restaurants.

  128. teresa on January 10, 2013 9:09 am

    i would love to win these.
    having just taught my self how to knit im itching to expand what ill be able to make!

  129. Sara on January 10, 2013 10:32 am

    Always looking for new knitting patterns for my collection!

  130. Adina on January 10, 2013 11:58 am

    Thank goodness I am not the only one with red cold nose tip and ears that feel like icicles. The way I keep war at home is wear two layer long sleeve sweater and sweats with long songs, turn on my portable heater and snuggle in my soft blanket. The way I stay warm outdoors I find every excuse to avoid going out in the winter. Definitely cold natured. Hope I win!xoxoxo Adina

  131. Nancy Luebke on January 10, 2013 12:51 pm

    I stay cold more lately. Would be nice to win. Thanks for the giveaway.

  132. Glenda Edwards on January 10, 2013 3:10 pm

    I am soooo cold natured. It does not help that I am anemic (but working to remedy that).

  133. Becky/Quilting Booklady on January 10, 2013 6:08 pm

    I tend to be cold-natured. I love to wear socks to keep warm:) Hot tea, coffee and soup help, too.

  134. Connie on January 10, 2013 6:15 pm

    I am definitly a lover of warm air and sunshine.

  135. Starletta Schipp on January 10, 2013 7:36 pm

    I used to be cold-natured but lately I’ve become of an age where I get sudden bursts of my own personal summer LOL

  136. Mindie on January 10, 2013 7:51 pm

    Love the warmer summer months. But nothing is better than knitting in the winter and having the project over you.

  137. Rebecca Humphries on January 10, 2013 8:49 pm

    I’m also a cold person, living in a cold climate, warm knitting would be fun to own. I only own one knitting book so this would be a real treat. thank you

  138. Jeanette Andre on January 11, 2013 12:50 am

    I am forever cold, and then I get a chill and my teeth are chattering and Im covered in goosebumps and that is indoors. When you are sitting all day at work and you have a t-shirt,a long sleeved top, a sweater, a hoodie sweatshirt and your coat on and still cold. And when someone walks past you, you will even get a chill, and you hope they drop off their coat to wrap around your legs or to go over your shoulders too.

  139. Elena on January 11, 2013 8:58 am

    Best way to get warm is by working on an afghan! :)

  140. Ruth on January 11, 2013 1:32 pm

    Thanks for the great giveaway opportunity! Knitting warm clothing is the perfect thing to do in this winter climate, especially for this “cold-natured” person.

  141. Charlotte on January 11, 2013 1:39 pm

    It would be lovely to actually win a book versus buying it – and three, whoa la la as Cisco Morris always says!

  142. Malin on January 11, 2013 3:19 pm

    I sure could use some warm clothes! I would love to have a closer look at these books.

  143. Emily on January 11, 2013 3:24 pm

    I get pretty cold even in my mild climate, but I enjoy it and love bundling up for winter weather!

  144. Ginny M on January 11, 2013 4:12 pm

    I wear my gloves and scarves all winter long and I live in Florida. I would never make it in a cold climate.

  145. Christine Uniejewski on January 11, 2013 4:13 pm

    Always warm…I live in tank tops. But, when I catch a chill, I love getting warm by snuggling with my boys.

  146. Paula C on January 11, 2013 6:15 pm

    The older I get the more trouble I have staying warm, even in this warm climit. I knit for other people all the time. It is time to knit something just for me I think. Thank you for the chance to win these great books.

  147. Barbara on January 11, 2013 7:53 pm

    It’s been cold here (SoCal)lately and my hands and feet get cold quicker than usual. I’m wearing a heavy sweat shirt right now.

  148. OHSue on January 11, 2013 9:32 pm

    It is really cold here in Ohio and could really use something to warm the family…. hey, how about knitting something from one of these books if I am lucky.

  149. Cheryl on January 11, 2013 9:43 pm

    I seem to be cold quite often at this time in my life. I have a hot pack that I use quite often to keep me warm. If I get really chilled and I can’t get warmed up, I grab the hair blower and turn it on and in a few seconds the chill is gone.
    Please count me in for a chance to win.
    Thank you

  150. usairdoll on January 12, 2013 12:35 am

    What beautiful books! Would love to have these in my library. I’m usually alittle warmer than those around me.

    Thank you for an awesome giveaway and a chance to win.

    usairdoll(at)gmail.com

  151. Helen on January 12, 2013 9:15 am

    I’m always cold, and my husband is like a hot water tank (lucky for me, maybe not so much for him – I tend to try and leach some of his heat by putting my ice block feet on him in bed!). These books look great, I especially like the look of the Norwegian one. Thanks for the giveaway.

  152. Shannon on January 12, 2013 9:33 am

    Living in AZ I love the warmer weather. Once the temps drop below 80* I am freezing. I would love the win these books so I can knit new things.

  153. Sarah Mahan on January 12, 2013 11:30 am

    I’m always cold. I drink coffee and tea a lot. I have several blankets stashed close by and I knit as much as I can when I’m not cuddling up with my husband and our 2 yr old

  154. Deb on January 12, 2013 1:33 pm

    Interesting question because i’m both hot and cold natured. If my husband is cold, i’m not. If he’s hot, I’m chilly. We can’t ever get on the same wave length!

  155. Lillz+y on January 12, 2013 1:57 pm

    I’m cold even in summer times. But if I work and activate my body, I warm my self for a long time. My circulation is really bed, but I can deal with it. Hope ti get the books. Wish you all the best.
    Good luck to all.

  156. Katy on January 12, 2013 2:53 pm

    I feel like I am cold all the time!

  157. Carmen on January 12, 2013 9:20 pm

    This time of year I’m almost always cold. I like to drink warm fluids (coffee, tea, cocoa) and snuggle under warm blankets.

  158. sharon on January 13, 2013 5:33 am

    I tend to be warm except for my nose which take the brunt of the cold. I have to cup it with both hand in order to keep it warm… Therefore making my hands cold. Vicious cycle.

  159. Sandra on January 13, 2013 9:46 am

    I love knitting big things in the winder so I can keep my lap warm. I truly love knitting any chance I get.

  160. cassandra mccann on January 13, 2013 12:28 pm

    knitting releases so much stress

  161. michele on January 13, 2013 12:59 pm

    Thanks for the chance to win!

  162. Cristine Natkin on January 13, 2013 7:13 pm

    Love to be out in the winter! Whether it’s hiking with my dog, skiing or having fun in the snow!

  163. Daniel Thornton, Jr. on January 13, 2013 10:01 pm

    I am warm nauted.

  164. Donald Poole on January 13, 2013 11:29 pm

    My fav way to get warm is in front of a fire with a bottle of bubbly and a warm companion.

  165. suza on January 14, 2013 11:50 am

    cuddle on the couch with the whole family and hoard the cat on my lap for extra warmth!

  166. Sandra Merritt on January 16, 2013 10:43 am

    I’m a self taught knitter of four years ands am always looking to improve. I’d love, love, love towin these knitting books.
