More Big Girl Knits: Review and GiveAway

9780307353740
Let me tell you, the gals have done it again. I got my hands on the book 2 days ago, and I have already picked out three projects that I want to make. There is one in here, the Susie Hoodie, it’s a cross between a swing coat and a hoodie, and it has such wonderfully cable-y cables on the edges. I am totally making that for myself. I even have the yarn for it already! And the sweater on the front cover? That’s a must have right there, though I am pretty sure I don’t have the yarn for it. The Hot Cocoa Jacket, that double breasted piece of loveliness? Likewise. And the Goddess Shawl? Ditto. Okay, apparently I meant four, not three. Whatever. And Country has her eye on a couple as well. Though if she thinks she gets the first Susie Hoodie, she’s got another think coming.

Oh my. I think I just sorta committed to TWO Susie Hoodies. *GULP*

It’s a great book, and just as in the last one, Jillian Moreno and Amy R. Singer give you the whys and how to’s you need to design your own better fitting garments. My TBK(nit) pile is rapidly reaching the proportions of my TBR pile, and this is a very bad thing. Or a good thing, depending on how much housework I can avoid over the next decade. More Big Girl Knits will be hitting the book store shelves next Tuesday, but! Hahaha, you knew there was a but, didn’t you? Yep, you can win a copy right here. The contest will start when I hit publish, and will run through midnight April 6th. I’ll announce the winner via random number on Monday the 7th. You can get an entry by commenting on this post. You can get another entry by “stumbling” this post. (You can use the button right under the post (or your toolbar) to do that.) You can get two more entries by writing about this give away on your own blog with a link back to this post. And let’s throw in an experimental entry method: if you are a member of a crafty type forum, and you post about this giveaway with a link back, you’ll get another entry. You’ll need to come back and let me know you’ve done that by leaving a link to your forum post in the comments.

If you have never commented on this blog before, then your comment will be moderated. I’ll approve it as soon as I get back to the keyboard :)

I think that’s enough fine print, let’s get started!
