Paying it Forward

I just got a happy surprise. I went to purchase Faina Goberstein’s Craftsy class on Sizing Knitwear Patterns (I’m interested in how different designers approach this problem) and the class downloaded for FREE. I was told that Craftsy instructors get access to all the classes, but I expected to have to wait until my class becomes available in June.

So, I want to pay it forward and offer another raffle for one of my print books. Tell me which book you’d like and why and I’ll draw a winner Tuesday (March 29) morning.

Here’s to more happy surprises!

  1. Wow! Thank you. Knitting sweaters from the top down. And I really hope it’s April, not March!

  2. Pat (Alicesmom on Ravelry)

    That does sound like an interesting class. I would love to have The best of Interweave Knits.

  3. Your sock books are the only ones that made sense to me, and helped me start knitting socks for everyone! So, I would love any of your books, but maybe ‘Sweaters from the Top Down.’ Thank you!

  4. I would love the Knitter Book of Patterns. I always end up changing something, so I would love to have basic patterns for things, that I can change up or put stitch patterns into.

  5. I didn’t realize how many of your books I already have 🙂 – so I would like Simple Style!

  6. Scarf Style 2 would put a huge smile on my face and kick-start my knitting mojo for getting a jump on holiday gifts!

  7. Anne, I have just retired and want to get back to my love of knitting now that I have time! If I’m lucky enough to win, I think your Scarfs book would be a good place to start. Thanks for paying it forward.

  8. I would love ‘The Knitter’s Handy Book of Patterns’. I’m starting to learn how to modify patterns to suit my taste and body and I think this book would be a great resource. Thanks!

  9. I have your sock master class book and your gifts book. Would love learning how to knit sweaters from the top down. Loved yr class at the Hills retreat. Lin

  10. I have the 2 sweater books, and just love them! I would like “The Knitter’s Handy Book of Patterns.” Thanks for the chance of winning.

  11. I love Craftsy and look forward to your class! If I could have a copy of Top Down Sweaters for my library, I’d be very grateful.

  12. Karen Hurchinson

    I’d love the Sweaters Top Down. I love the no seams part. At least I now do finish them. But there was a day when I’d have just parts all done and blocked, but not together.

  13. I’d love to explore the possibility of spinning my own wool so, Spindling, From Fluff to Stuff please!

  14. That’s so nice of you! I’d love to own Simple Style. The designs are classic and so wearable.

  15. I would LOVE a copy of Top-Down Sweaters! (Am assuming you meant April and not March for drawing date!)

  16. You are simply amazing Ann! What a kind and generous gift you are giving! I would love to have the handy book of top down sweaters. And in the spirit of paying it forward I will knit a gift for someone out of the book should I win. Thank you!

  17. Love and learn so much from your blog and all your books, I have several! I am working on my Masters of Hand Knitting and there are two books on the bibliography one I don’t have, so winning it would be awesome! The knitter’s Handy Book of Patterns: Basic Designs in Multiple Sizes & Gauges.

    I have most of your books and love each and every one, but I would love the ‘Best of Interweave’ ’cause it has some of your patterns in it. Thank you so much for sharing your love and expertise of knitting ~ because of you I always use the knitting safety pins at the corners of my gussets when I knit socks. When I take them out and there are no holes (!!), I always say a little ‘thank you, Ann’.

  19. You opened my door to life-long joy of knitting with your best instruction to knitting books. God knows how many thousands more like me thank you.
    “Paying it forward”, it’s so timely, that happened to be my focus recently, as well.

    If I could ask one of your book now though, I would say Sock Knitting Master Class, because I have a strong feeling that this book would probably open another door to tons more solutions for sock making.

    Thank you for the best lessons in starting knitting, Ann. (And this friendly website!) It just lit up my life. I just can’t help but look up to you.

  20. Dear Ann, I would love “Simple Style” please. You signed my copy of your book “the knitter’s handy book of Patterns”, “Roxanne – enjoy every stitch!”. Because of you I do even if I suffer from arthritis. Thank you.

  21. Top Down Sweaters because I have become disappointed with raglans and really would like to try other options.

  22. I would love to have a copy of Sock Knitting Master Class. I love that boom. Thanks for the giveaway.

  23. Oh, “Favorite Socks,” please! I love the Retro Rib sock, but I’ve misplaced the magazine it was printed in. Spare me the trouble of digging through boxes of magazines and patterns!

  24. I find your books/patterns so easy to read and apply. I would love to have “Favorite Socks”, because I used your other book “Getting Started Knitting Socks” and I have been knitting socks ever since and loving it. I can’t wait for your class on Craftsy.

  25. I hope you can help with my struggle with the Pussy Willow Stocking’s instep expansion. Because if I understand well the pattern (right instep expansion) once you do the 5 ends, you have a total of 2 sets Inc each time, for my size I have rep them 8 times more and the rnds 1-3 once more getting a total of 20 sets Inc’d , but according to the pattern should be 30, Would I like to know what I missing or doing wrong thanks.

  26. I would love Sweaters from the Top Down and then I would pay it forward and give away a book that I had to our knitting guild’s library!

  27. I’d love a copy of The Knitter’s Handy Book of Top-Down Sweaters.
    Hope your father is doing well.
    Thank you for your kindness.
