And the Winner Is…

“Those slippers are so sweet! Kristin is one of my knitting heros. Her new book looks fantastic. I would love to see more patterns for boys. Currently knitting for friends with new babies, boys. Have been knitting from Itty Bitty Hats/Susan Anderson – love her work! I started crocheting first, because I thought knitting was too hard, “back in the day” —- now I do both and love all the new fibers!”
I’ve already emailed her for her address.
For some reason (that may begin with a p and end with rocrastination) I felt compelled to do an old-school style drawing instead of using the random number generator, so I printed out the comments on the reverse side of some scrap paper. There were a lot of comments (77) to cut up and in retrospect, I probably should have gone to the kitchen for the bigger scissors.
Thanks to everyone who left a comment–I wish I had more books to give away! I was really taken by the thought all of you put into your comments (which is why I love to ask a question when I do a drawing), thank you! I have some new projects to try and I loved reading all of your stories.
If you didn’t win the book, I hope you’ll seek it out anyway. It is really not that hard to do Fairsisle knitting. In fact, as Kristin mentioned on her blog today, it’s easy, because for many of the projects, you work in the round and never have to purl a stitch. My gauge gets really wonky when I throw purls into the mix, so you know I love that! I hope you’ll adopt her “Farmgirls Just Do It” attitude and give it a try.
I’ll be back tomorrow (I hope) to show you some of my recent crochet and kniting projects. I seem to be making gifts now that it’s NOT the holiday season. It is much more lovely to make them because I want to and not because I feel like I have to. Oh yes.
