March Giveaway!

This month's giveaway is going to be a little different....

The past two months I have given away something handmade by me. But this month, I'm not giving something away that's handmade at all! In fact, this will only appeal to my fellow knitters, I'm sure.

Recently, I've come across two copies of The Natural Knitter, by Barbara Albright. So, if you can put two and two together....that means that one copy is the giveaway prize!


This book is great. Not only does it have some cute patterns, but it talks about all different types of natural fibers, how to use them, and the differences between them all. I'm so excited to send a copy to a new home!

Here's how to enter: 
1. leave a comment below telling me your favorite fiber to knit with or your favorite knitting book
2. become a follower and make sure you leave a second comment telling me you did! (or already are!)
3. tweet, blog, or facebook about this and leave me the link - one entry for each

so, up to 5 entries per person! giveaway ends sometime Sunday afternoon (4/3), so pass the word, and good luck!

  1. How fun!
    I'm a relatively new knitter, but I have to say that I'm currently in love with merino. A lot of that love comes from the fact that many wools are irritating to my skin, but merino is not. Plus it's just so deliciously soft.

  9. Oh! I've wanted this book for so long! What a great prize. :) My favorite fiber to knit with is definitely wool. Plain old wool. I love a good worsted, even with a little scratch to it. Thanks for the chance!

  12. I follow you and I love to use wool. It's natural without being as scratchy as some of the other fibers--I'm allergic to a lot of them.

  26. There's no way I could *possibly* choose a favorite fiber to knit with! As a spinner, I love 'em all (except cotton... )

  30. I love the feel of cotton. I make lots of dishcloths because I love the texture of the yarn. I've even made a halter top in sport weight cotton, just so I could use cotton yarn! I'd love to make more clothing & other items out of cotton yarn or cotton blends.
