5-Year Blogiversary Approaches

September 27

On October 21st, the AudKnits website will officially turn 5 years old! It’s hard to believe all that has happened since its debut. There have been many personal challenges balanced out by the joy of my book Reversible Scarves: Curing the Wrong Side Blues.

As you may remember from years past, I love to do a giveaway in celebration of the Blogiversary. I’m going to totally tease you by letting you know now that this year’s giveaway will be by far the biggest! Keep your eyes peeled for upcoming reviews that will give you hints as to what the big prize is going to be.

I just had to write this post now, since I’m bursting with anticipation!

California Revival Knits Giveaway

August 27

I’ve been a little grumpy lately. Then I came across a news item that says that August is “Admit You’re Happy Month” which seems also to be known as ”Happiness Happens” month. One article even says that the month includes National Smile Week and National Friendship Week. The universe conspired to lift me out of my slump. It also reminded me that I have a fantastic book to give away, by my friend Stephannie Tallent. And that makes me smile.

So…. in celebration of Admit You’re Happy Month, I will be giving away Stephannie’s incredibly beautiful book California Revival Knits. You may remember I raved about the book in my review of it last year.

February Winner

book giveaway

Congratulations to Linda! She won the Coastal Knits giveaway.

Written by Alana Dakos and Hannah Fettig, Coastal Knits contains fabulous patterns, unified by the theme of the two designers getting their inspiration from the two separate coasts they live near. The book is a joy to look at, with lovely graphics, stunning photography that makes you want to visit all the places they talk about, and designs that tempt me to set aside everything else I’m doing and just knit one pattern after another.

If you don’t already own this wonderful book, you can check out the Coastal Knits website to see what I mean!

Thank You, Knitters!

February 12

I’m thrilled and ever-so-grateful that my book Reversible Scarves: Curing the Wrong Side Blues is #1 on Unicorn’s TNNA Top Books of Long Beach 2013!

Top 50 Books

I thank all the knitters and yarn shops who have enthusiastically embraced the book. I’m glad you like it!  I also wholeheartedly thank all those who made this book possible – the editors, photographers, models, sample knitters, and trusted friends who lent constructive support along the way. And, of course, my husband and family for their patience!

To celebrate, we’re launching a new site for the book, where you can “look inside” the book, get links to purchase it (the new digital version will be available soon, too), see a sampling of the pattern photos, and get wholesale information.

4 Year Blogiversary and Giveaway

October 22

It’s hard to believe another year of blogs has gone by! My AudKnits website turns 4 this year, and I want to thank all of you for making it an exciting one.

Of course the big news of the year was the publication of my book Reversible Scarves: Curing the Wrong Side Blues. I’m thrilled that the book has been well received by the knitting community!

—————————————————————

Yippee! I’m conducting another giveaway, with FOUR winners to celebrate FOUR years of blogging.  The fantastic Lima Pop Shoppe on Artfire has created a Special Edition set of six stitch markers using colors from the AudKnits website! Laurie Prestia carefully crafts her markers using smooth wire that does not catch on yarn. The markers fit up to US #10 size needles, but are thin enough to work well on small needles as well – I use mine on sock and lace projects all the time.
