I'm going to mention the dreaded word again so cover your eyes now if you aren't ready.
CHRISTMAS! Yes Christmas is a coming folks. I thought as it's such a crisp and frosty morning out there, making me feel all seasonal and festive, I'd offer up a giveaway.
I actually won this book from The Book People when they ran a craft competition on Twitter. T'was my Journal inspired Duckie made for the wonderful Sandra that did it for me. *Yay!*
The book I won was Knitivity by Fiona Goble. It's a lovely book, but I don't knit. (Yet!) I was doing a little happy dance just for the simple fact that they chose Duckie so am more than happy to pass on my good luck."In times of thrift, shop-bought stuff can feel a little meaningless. Surely it's more satisfying to create something all your own that can be handed down through the family, carrying memories with it? And where better to start than with the ultimate family craft project, the Christmas decorations. This book provides a fresh slant on the traditional Nativity scene. In it you will find all the knitting patterns you will need, including the Baby Jesus, Mary, Joseph, the Three Wise Men, the Shepherds, the Angels and the animals.
The book contains patterns for sixteen projects and a cardboard stable and a manger.
It is suitable for all levels of knitting skill and includes instructions for the basic knitting stitches as well as the special stitches for the finishing touches.
The Nativity story is retold alongside the knitting instructions for all the family to enjoy."
You don't have to follow me to win - to be honest I would rather you only did that if you really do want to come back. Lurkers are more than welcome. Everyone who comments gets one entry... so spam away if you like, you'll still only get one entry. (Scrooge? Moi?) I will post internationally as well. I'll put the names in the virtual hat and draw a name... say next Monday? Yep Monday the 22nd. That gives you a week to enter.
I would ask that if you win and knit up a storm from the book, I'd love you to show me a piccie or a link to a piccie - I bet The Book People would love to see too. Their Twitter page is here.
Good luck and thanks as always for stopping by :)
