Hi, Susan! I love your new book. I'd love the chance to knit up this little guy.

Congratulations!! Katie B. please send me your mailing address by Tuesday, December 15th. My email is on the sidebar.
So let me tell you what I added to the prize pot. I have one skein of the luscious Malabrigo. It's yours. Plus, I am throwing in a skein of Cascade 220 in a gorgeous purpley pink. Love it.
Here is the Superwash Cascade 220 in Daffodil and Orange and my all-time favorite tool, Alice's Pom Tree! You're going to need the Pom Tree to get your Giraffe all dressed up and ready to go.
Here is the friendly, sleepy Giraffe just waiting to be knit up by you, Katie B!
Remember this guy in Itty-Bitty Toys?
Well, I am throwing in the rest of the Yarntini Chocolatini yarn that I used for the monkey in the book. There is plenty to knit another chocolate sock monkey for sure! I love this yarn so much. It reminds me of golden chocolate chip cookies.
Remember the Baby Bear in IBT?
I am pretty sure there is enough left on this skein to whip up another Baby Bear or a Curly Snake or maybe a Pear in the Finger Foods selection. This is my favorite colorway in Noro. That burst of magenta gets me every time.
Speaking of the Curly Snake...
... here is the rest of that skein as well. I barely used any of this large skein of yarn for the snake in the book. You could get another snake or two out of this one!

There you go, Katie B. ! Can't wait to hear from you. You know every time I do a giveaway I always dread picking a winner. I wish I could send all of you stuff, really. Thank you for entering and leaving such happy, loving comments. You are the best, each and every one of you.

Thank you, dear Knitters. You make this blog so much fun. I look forward to coming here and writing and sharing with you. It is a comfortable place for me to be and I hope for you, too.

best, susie
p.s. Check out these two new toy pattern previews I designed and knitted for Spud & Chloƫ and Blue Sky Alpacas. I am pretty excited about both of them. They will be available shortly and I'll give more details soon. Both of these patterns have interesting construction details.
p.p.s I'll be back this week with a recap of my Stitchers Crossing event yesterday (it was fun!) and a book review of Kristin Nicholas', Color with Kristin. I think I can host another giveaway for this book, too, so be looking for that if interested! I think I possibly can giveaway 2 copies but I have to double check on that with Kristin's publicist. I have a stack of books I need to review and share but I can't seem to find the time to get it done.
