CLOSED as of 8pm est time on June 25th "GIVE AWAY TIME !"

Hey Everyone !

OK , so do I have some exciting news. I happen to have gotten 5 copies of a book I think alot of knitters will enough. The " Socks a la Carte" book which I think is a must have for any knitter who wants to make socks and just loves to knit.

 So here is the deal. This Give Away is FREE to enter, will last 1 week ( Friday June 17th till Saturday June 25th ) Then I will randomly select 5 winners.

"So what do I have to do?" you ask. Well just leave a comment on this Blog entry. Say hello or just say anything and that will enter you into the contest. But please be mindful and kind and only enter 1 time :) Once the random numbers are drawn those people matching the numbers ( which would be the order of which your post is placed) will be contacted so I can send your Book out to you :) How exciting !

OK, Happy Knitting !

Hi Joey,

I saw your post on Bear Revelry. Sign me up. I've seen this book and thought it was a great idea. I'm currently working my way through the more attractive patterns in Charlene Schurch's "Sensational Knitted Socks," and haven't even seen the second book that she's done. But you can't have too many knitting books for more ideas.

Thanks for keeping up your blog. I look forward to more posts.
