    Happy Blogversary to you Audrey,

    A wonderful giveaway!

    Here’s a limerick in your honor.

    Dear Audrey loved to knit scarves,
    she never did things by halves.
    In her book about double,
    she caused some people trouble,
    They knitted their scarves to their calves!

  15. On October 21st, 2013 at 1:55 pm Jean Carrington Says:

    I would love to try Bargello Knitting. I have done Bargello needle work and loved it. Good luck to me!!

    Congratulations on your blogiversary (I’ve learned a new word today!).

    This is a very generous giveaway. I’m intrigued by the book – never heard of bargello knitting before – and the bag would make anyone’s WIPs look sophisticated. But most of all I love the yarn colours.
