Today’s the Day

The little counter at the base of my blog page just hit 149,900 hits. At this rate, it will reach 150,000 by midnight. But in case it doesn’t turn the corner until the wee hours of the morning, I’ll allow entries until 12 midnight on Wednesday, June 27.

To enter, just respond to this post and tell me which of my books you’d like. You can see a list of all my books by going to my website and clicking on Books and Apps in the upper right-hand corner. All books are fair game, including the yet-to-be released Knitter’s Handy Book of Top-Down Sweaters.

  1. I would also love to have . . . Top-Down Sweaters. My most recent acquisition is . . . Book of Sweater Patterns. I’m sure Top-Down will be equally wonderful (not to mention handy!).

  2. I would love to win a copy of The Knitter’s book of Top-down Sweaters- it’s one of the few of your books I don’t have already. Thanks for having this give-away!

  3. My all time favorite knitting book is Sock Knitting Master Class. The sections on construction are very readable. The patterns are interesting and not just variations on a theme.

  4. I already own, and use often, four of your books. I would love to add The Knitter’s Handy Book of Top-Down Sweater Patterns to my book collection.

  5. It’s hard to decide, but since I really love knitting top-down, I will go with The Knitter’s book of Top-down Sweaters. Thanks for the opportunity!

  6. I would love to have the Sock Knitting Master Class! Thanks for a chance!

  7. Congratulations! If you choose me, I would like the one book by you that I don’t already own: The Knitter’s Handy Book of Top-Down Sweaters.

    Thanks for your generosity!

  8. I would love the Handy Book of Top Down Sweaters. I am currently working on a top down sweater developed from your Handy book of patterns.

  9. I own & use The Knitter’s Handy Book of patterns & The Knitter’s Handy Book of Sweater Patterns. Quite a few of your books are on my wish list: I think that Sock Knitting Master Class would be my top choice, as it has so many technique & design details.

  10. Congratulations! That’s a lot of hits! I’d love a copy of Knitter’s Handy Book of Top-Down Sweaters.

  11. Congratulations on an incredible milestone! After looking at the list of books you’ve authored, I realized I would have to choose the new top down sweaters book, as *ahem* I already own all the others.

  12. hooray for 150,000. Hard choice but I would go for The Knitter’s Handy Book of Patterns: Basic Designs in Multiple Sizes and Gauges since I have 3 children in 3 very different sizes.

  13. I would love a copy of your new book – Knitter’s Handy Book of Top Down Sweaters. After seeing your blog, I may even have to try knitting a pair of socks in the future. It’s taken a year to finish one of two. Congrats on hitting 150,000!

  14. Hi Ann,

    I’d be honored to be the winner
    of your Knitter’s Handy Book of
    Top-Down Sweaters. I could
    definitely use the inspiration to
    jump start my sweater knitting!

    Thanks, KPG! =)

  15. I would love to have a copy of teh Handy Book of Top Down Sweaters. I learned to knit using your Sock Book and I carry the Yarn Requirements chart with me at all times! Thank you for sharing your talents with us and for this give away!

  16. Seeing as how I have all the rest of your books in my library already, I’d love to win your new Handy Book of Top Down Sweaters. I’m especially excited about that one since I love knitting top down – it makes it so much easier to adjust for my ample bosom as I go than bottom up, in my experience.

  17. Congratulations!

    I’ve already got a whole lot of your books, and The Knitter’s Handy Book of Top-Down Sweaters is at the top of my wish list, so that is what I would love to win!

    For me, it would be the Handy Book of Top-down Sweaters since I own everything else of yours.

  30. Knitter’s Handy Book of Top-Down Sweaters, please! I’ve been looking forward to this one ever since I first heard of it. Your Handy Book of Sweaters is excellent but I love top down sweaters best, for the ease of trying them on as I go.

I live by your yarn requirements pamphlet! I’d like to win the new book. (It will save me a trip to the States to buy it!)Thank you for the opportunity.

  32. I would love to have the Knitter’s Handy Book of Top Down Sweaters. It looks like a wonderful addition to any knitter’s library, and I especially like knitting from the top down because I am tall, and it makes it so easy to add length and knit until I am happy with the length and/or out of yarn.

  46. Thanks for celebrating this milestone with us! I would love to add your upcoming top-down sweater book to my collection. I have to admit, I’m a bit of a fangirl. I love the approach you take in the Handy books; if you’ll just help me with the general shape and construction of the garment, I’ll dream up my own color scheme, stitch patterns, and embellishments.

  47. This i so great! I love your blog and am so glad to see you bringing so much joy to so many. I would love a copy of your new top-down sweater book. I have so many of your other books already!

  57. Oooh I think I would like Top Down Sweaters book since that is the only type of sweaters I’ve managed to make.
    I think I already own all your sock books so while those are wonderful, I’d like something new.

  61. _Hnady Book of Top-down Sweaters_ is the book I’m looking forward to seeing. I have and use many of your other books. The sock books get quite a workout around here. The Handy books are in rotation often.

    Thank you, Ann. Congratulations on the numerous blog views.
