Prize Winners & a Signed “Knitlandia” Giveaway!


Rebecca is the winner of the Knitting Doodads drawing, and Mercedes is the winner of the Highland Summer drawing! Congratulations, ladies! I’ve emailed you both, and also posted a response to your comments on my blog.

On a recent trip to Philadelphia to attend Clara Parkes’ Knitlandia book signing at Loop Yarn store, I picked up an extra copy of her book because I thought it might come in handy. And it has! I’m excited to give away a First Edition of Clara’s Knitlandia (because it’s already into its second printing!) to a lucky blog reader!

Even more exciting, Knitlandia just made it onto the New York Times Bestseller List in Travel! Which is so fabulous, and so very well-deserved for Clara, who is an extraordinary writer. It’s always so exciting when great things happen for great friends. Woohoo!

The book is currently in Clara’s hands, and she’s agreed to sign and personalize it for the winner of this random drawing. So, if you’d like a copy of Clara’s book signed just for you, leave me a comment on this blog post to be entered to win! I’ll choose a random winner on Monday, March 14, 2016.

Please include your Ravelry name in your comment (if you’re on Ravelry) so I can contact the winner via Ravelry PM as well as email (it’s always better to have multiple contact options 🙂 ).

  6. Oh I love the way Clara Parkes writes!!I am “notprettytowatch” on Revelry. Let me explain…I don’t have a self image issue. Years ago, after a big knee surgery, a friend came to visit. After a while, she said,” You know, you need to find something to do. Your brain, at rest, is not pretty to watch.”. So I started to knit!
