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:

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
