Knitting GIVEAWAY!

So I picked up this thing called knitting. Forever I thought it was complex and didn't even try--but my roommate knits and crochets EVERYTHING and ANYTHING and so I decided to give it a whirl. Knitting is fun! And surprisingly not too hard! So far I have made a very crooked bookmark and half a knitting as of now is lumpy and distorted somewhat, but it is knitting. And I am proud =P

I know if I keep practicing, I'll be creating wonderful items soon.

That brings me to what today's post is about! I am going to do my first giveaway today. I am going to be mailing a copy of  "New Knits on the Block: A guide to knitting what kids really want".

I picked up this book when I began my knitting journey, and its a little too advanced for me (Its about lvl 1-2, I am lvl 0 so far) so I thought it would be wonderful to give away on my blog! It is a brand new book, ready for someone to knit away with.

I am also giving away, with this book, one of my cuffs/or bracelets in my etsy shop. The winner can pick whatever one they want, or I can create a custom one with your color and size. Some of the styles are:

To enter you must follow this blog, and leave me a comment about your favorite color. You can follow on blogger, bloglovin, or networked blogs (I have all three of these things on my sidebar for easy access). Networked blogs uses facebook, for those of you who don't know. If there is something else used to follow blogs that I'm missing, shoot me a e-mail I'll add it to the side bar for you. Also, if you want to tweet or facebook the giveaway, I'll let you have extra entries!

This giveaway ends Feb 7th, 2011. Anyone can enter! If you are under 18 please ask your parents since I will have to mail this to you and it will require your address or P.O box. Thanks for participating!

I knit! I knit! My favorite color is Orange. I look better in cooler colors, like Purple, so I don't wear it very often, but I have a ton of Orange stuff and get really excited when things are Orange. Good luck Knitting! It's a lot of fun when you have downtime or need to distract yourself.

I do not knit or crochet. My favorite color is also Orange, tho.

Just started following this blog! Good luck with starting knitting, I started seriously trying to knit a year and half ago and now I can basically knit anything I choose to. If you want to learn how to knit new things quickly, offer to knit things for friends and when someone says, "I want socks", just say "I'll do my best" and then figure out how to knit socks. Then eventually you'll quickly be able to deal with any type of request (slippers, armwarmers, gloves, a knit pony, shorts, etc.) Anyways, good luck and have fun!

And my favorite color is green!

yay knitting!!! I've always wanted to try to learn to knit but I've never really had the time. My favorite color is probably teal or green.

PS. I already thought I was a follower, but apparently I wasn't! That has been remedied!

I'm in :)
My favourite colour is green, but bluish-purple is a close second. I really like the plaid cuff in the #3 square, it's cute!
