Cast On, Bind Off Giveaway

June 7

So what’s my excuse for conducting another giveaway? Today is National Chocolate Ice Cream Day! Isn’t that grand?

To celebrate, I’ll be giving away a copy of Cap Sease’s incredible book Cast On, Bind Off: 211 Ways to Begin and End Your Knitting. (You can read my review here.) The most exciting thing is that Cap will personalize and sign the giveaway copy to whoever wins it!

CastOn BindOff_8

To win, put down your spoon and chocolate ice cream long enough to enter a comment here on this post by the end of Flag Day (midnight Pacific Time on June 14th). Please include your contact information in your comment so I can let you know if you’re the lucky winner! I’ll be conducting a random drawing. (One comment per person, please, with only one comment and email address per person.)

    I would love to win this book! I can never know enough cast on and bind off methods.

    I’ll go get a dish of chocolate ice cream in a little while to celebrate National Chocolate Ice Cream Day. It’s been Chocolate Ice Cream Week for me as I heal from Tuesday’s dental implant. I’ve eaten so much, I could almost get sick of it. Almost, I said.

    Chocolate Ice Cream deserves more than just one day a year. So does this great book. I love looking at patterns, but seldom follow them, preferring to design my own. I quite often find myself with yarn in one hand, needles in the other … and no idea of what I want to do in my head. Just working thru this book would give me lots of new inspiration.

    Thanks for the giveaway.
