Spin, Quilt, Draw - Giveaways!


Edited to Add on Jan. 6th: The author of Art Doodle Love, Dawn Sokol, wrote to tell me that her book is intended for women. I said in the video that older kids or teens could have fun with it so Dawn just wants to make sure that people know the book is for women, not kids. That was my mistake.

Hi, Knitters,
Sorry for the long time in between posts. I kind of lost track of time last week. I had a magazine project to finish and ship off by the end of last week and there wasn't school on Friday... well, you all know how it goes. This morning I looked at my blog to see when I last posted and a week had flown by without my knowledge. This morning I whipped up a quick video for you. Links are all below.

After watching the video, here is how you enter to win one of the books I reviewed:

Please leave a comment on this blog post and tell me which book(s) you would like to win. It can be one, two or all three but each winner will only receive one of the books. All comments need to include your email address or ravelry id so I can get in touch. Please leave only one comment. There will be a delay in the posting of your comments because I approve all comments. Please be patient and don't post more than once. I'll be back in a couple of days to randomly select three winners. The Spinner's Book of Yarn needs to be a U.S. or Canada mailing address. The publishers are sending out the books directly so I will give them the winners' addresses. 

Here are the links from the video:

If you can't see the video click here to see it directly on YouTube

Vogue Knitting Live in Seattle (I'm teaching lots of classes! Hope to see you there!)

And because I know I'll get asked, I am wearing my Quaker Ridge Shawlette. This truly is my favorite shawl ever and not because I designed it. It is because it fits so well over my shoulders and stays put. I don't like to fuss around with things I am wearing, I am very simple that way. This shawl is perfection for me as it is warm, stretchy (madelinetosh pashmina) and generous in size. 

Also one last photo to share of TC wearing her Another Flower Headband. She looks so pretty in it. I was glad to see her wearing it one day out of the blue. She dug it out of the closet. In fact, she wore the headband all day inside the house and out. This version is made in Noro Kochoran. Notice the lack of braces.


I hope you enjoyed the video. It was pretty impromptu this morning.

Let the comments begin!
best, susie

Hi!

I would really love the Art Doodle Love book. I'm always looking for ways to tap into creativity. Especially for those moments when I need to take a break from knitting & crocheting to rest my eager hands.

I began knitting & crocheting July 2012 by exclusively referencing YouTube videos, Craftsy classes and other on-line resources.And let me tell you girlfriends, I AM HOOKED!!

I really appreciate the great instructional videos available out there. Without this community of generous knitters & crocheters I would have never started ton this new creative path for myself.

"Art Doodle Love" sounds like just the shot in the arm I need. I'm a victim of my own love of knitting; too much stash, too many patterns. It is all too overwhelming at the moment. Reading a book (this book) sounds really good for a change. And Susan, I wear my QRS much more often than I thought I would because I too find it fits so nicely and I never feel as if it will slip from my shoulders. Your mastery of the medium shines through!

I would love the Art, Doodle, Love book so I can give it to my granddaughter who is constantly doodling and drawing on just about everything she can get her hands on. She loves journaling too!
Also I would love to see more videos on your blog. It's really nice to see your face once in a while.
Thank you for this opportunity. slewie515@ gmail.com

Hi Susan,
I love the projects you're working on! I went on Craftsy to find the yoke sweater kit but didn't have any luck finding any knit kits on there. Do you know where I can find them, or at least the pattern? Thanks!

I would really love the Art Doodle Love for my daughter, Whitney. She has always loved to draw and as she got older, she also turned to photography as an "outlet", so to speak. I think this book would be a terrific journal for her! Thank you. Anne

All three books are great. My pick would be the quilting book by Kaffe Fassett. I can just imagine how inspiring it would be.

Nicely done, Susan! I just looked at a friend's copy of Kaffe Fassett Quilts: Shots and Stripes book and decided I must get my own! So that would be my choice. BTW, teared up when I saw how grown up TC is...hope she still likes her Fairy garden! :-)

Anything Kaffee Fasset wins hands down as far as I'm concerned! Loved him for years!
TC looks adorable with her headband and new teeth. What a pretty girl.

I would love any of the books as they all are of interest to me. I'm a devoted fan of Kaffe Fassett, but even though I don't quilt, I use his books for color inspiration. I'm a beginning spinner, so the Spinner's Design book would be wonderful. As a writer, the doodle book would be welcome.

Hi Susan...

I would LOVE a copy of the Spinner's book. While I do love to spin, it's something that gets put on the back burner. There's just not enough time in the day to do all of the knitting, sewing and spinning that I would like to do, you know?

Thanks so much for putting together this giveaway. I am feeling lucky - so that's good : )

All the Best,
Jackie
