Simple Style Giveaway Winner

A big-top round up of fun things today:

Finally got links on the blog to the free current issue of Knitcircus and to purchase the pattern collection. Whew!

A knitting friend tipped me off to the CogKNITive Podcast yesterday. Knitting and psychology from the warm and dynamic Dr. Gemma; how did I not find it before?! I'm listening to Episode 76 right now; Dr. G's heading to Stitches West with more than 100 bears for the Mother Bear Project from generous listeners. Go, generous listeners!

Newsletter brownie

My mom's brownie recipe. Find it in the Knitcircus Newsletter; some of you already have this in your inboxes. Its my childhood brownie (only I tweaked it with even more chocolate), chocolate-y, cakey and delicious. If you'd like to try my mom's brownies and see reviews of Cookie A's Sock Innovation and the book Doggie Knits, please sign up for the Mailing List at the bottom of the blog and I'll send it out for you next week. we only use the list for our monthly newsletters and magazine go-live notifications; no selling, no sharing, no worries.

The first designs off my needles were hats, and they remain one of my all-time favorite things to knit, so if you'd like to make up your own pattern or fit one to your own measurements, check out CosyMakesfor her excellent head-and-hat measuring tutorial.

And now, without further ado, let's give this book a good home!

Simple style bigger

The high quality you always expect from Interweave and Ann Budd, these designs may be simple, but not boring; designers like Mags Kandis, Veronik Avery and Cecily Glowik  make sweater knitting approachable with styles to flatter many body types.

Please leave a comment or sign up for the mailing list to enter the drawing; either or both will be counted, so if you do both, you get two chances. Yay!

I'll draw a winner on  Saturday morning (the 27th) to give people plenty of time.

ETA:  2 pm.

We have a winner! Marlene's the lucky knitter who'll receive the Simple Style book, but for everyone who signed up for the mailing list, look for the newsletter with recipes and reviews in your inbox on Monday.

Good luck and craft on,

Jaala

  1. I love this book. I’ve checked it out at the library several times and would love to own a copy. Can I have some brownies, too?

  2. While there is something exciting about knitting something complicated, I know that I’ll get much more use out of something simple. I’d love to be entered to win this book.

  8. oh, well, we’ll see what happens – i do these things all the time, never win anything, but i keep eying this book at the LYS and the cover sweater, which the shop owner has up as a sample, looks really amazing knit in Taos…

  9. Hi,
    Thanks to my friend and expert knitter/blogger, Jane P. I’ve found your wonderful magazine and blog! I look forward to visiting often … ohhh, and just like yarn and fabric, you can never have too many books on creative pursuits!
    All the best,
