    I would like a copy of Bag Style. I want to make a bag to carry my knitting supplies in. Suzanne DeSarbo,chrissue1@aol.com

  2. I have several of your books, but I don’t have Color Style. I am currently in love with colorwork and want to knit all the sweaters!

  3. You have made me very interested in New Directions in Sock Knitting, so I would choose that one.

  4. Hi Ann, I would love a copy of Knitted Gifts. It will take me from now until holiday time to get ready, so that book will be my inspiration and kick in the butt tha I need,

  5. Knitted Gifts. First, it’s just about the only book of your that I don’t already own. Second, I am always looking for summer projects that are good for Christmas gifts. I have seen this book and loved so many of the projects in there. I would love to have my own copy!

  6. Sharla Bratton Dierks

    I would love your book on Bags. I’ve been felting bags this past yr. or the knitted gifts.
    I’m still waiting to meet you. I’m a regular at a Longmont Yarn Shop & have never had the chance yet to meet you,

  7. I have a few of your books, love them. I think I would very much like lace style, since I love lace patterns.

  8. I forgot to leave my email address. Lol. But I do have a few of your books. I am missing Lace Style, which I think I would love. Thank You.

    It’s a little scary to look at the list and to discover that I have all the books! However, I would like a leaflet – knitters guide to yarn requirements. It would be handy to keep with my shopping bag! If the leaflet doesn’t count, then I could always use a spare copy of the handy book of sweater patterns to keep with my knitting bag

  10. I would love Scarf Style 2. I’ve been knitting more scarves/shawls for close family, and now friends want to learn if I won’t knit for them! 😉 So, I’m always looking for more ideas for various weather, style and age options! But I love all the books by you that I have!

  11. I’d like to own The Knitter’s Handy Book of Top-Down Sweaters, because it’s so useful and if I owned it I wouldn’t have to keep renewing it from the library!

  12. I would like Simple Style. Since I favor simple vs. fussy for my wardrobe I feel most if not all of the designs would appeal to me.

  13. Kendra Williams

    I have a bunch, but not Favorite Socks – how have I missed that one?!!! I learned toe-up socks from you at the first Hill Country Weavers Retreat and have been forever grateful. Hugs and more Hugs!

  14. I don’t have your Scarf Style 2 and would LOVE IT!! You are a master at pattern writing and I have learned a tremendous amount from you. I am now teaching my sister how to knit!

  15. I would love Top Down Sweaters. I borrowed from the library and used up my loan period . Great book with so many options!

  16. Sock Knitting Master Class! I stole my sister’s copy of the Getting Started version!

  17. I’ve recently revisited sock knitting and I love it! Now that I’m confident with vanilla-type socks, I feel I’m ready to branch out. I have looked at the designs in Sock Knitting: Master Class and have had it and New Direction in Sock Knitting in my cart for a while. I’m ready for the next step in keeping my feet warm. Take care.

  18. Sonnyia Stephens

    I would like a copy of Socks Knitting Master Class. I’m new to knitting socks and I like the way you have made your instructions easy to follow. I have watched you on crafts and would like to have this book to continue master the art of knitting socks.
    Thank you very much!

  19. Lace Style because the sweater on the cover is exactly what I need in my office. The office is cold year round and lace cardis are perfect for summer bare arms and to layer in fall and winter. And most importantly, it is filled with designa by you, Ann Budd!

  20. Hi Ann,

    I hope you are doing well. Thank you for bringing us this raffle. I could really love the Handy Book of Top Down Sweaters. As a newer knitter, I am just getting into making garments and most sweaters are too short. The top down aspect allows me to knit them longer and try on as I go. Who better to learn sweater construction than from Ann Budd? Big hugs from Calgary, Alberta!

  21. The Knitter’s Handy Book of Sweater Patterns is the book for me. I’m just getting started in sweater knitting and I am interested in all the construction options offered, as well as the sizing and gauge options.. I have also heard good reviews of this book.

  22. Leslie Caponey

    I would love to win your book The Knitter’s Handy Book of Top-Down Sweaters. I’ve de died this is the year for me to Knit my first adult sweater. What a great way to start with the guidance of this book.

  23. I would love a copy of Getting Started: Knitting Socks. I’ve been knitting for 1 1/2 year and socks is on my list of know how’s. 🙂

  24. I own and use Knitting Green, Scarf Style 2 and the Knitter’s Handy Book of Top Down Sweaters. I would love to own Knitted Gifts, or Simple Style, or Wrap Style, or the Best of Interweave Knits, so that I wouldn’t have to keep borrowing them from the library!

  25. Shelley Nordin

    I would love to win a copy of “The Knitter’s Handy Book of Top-Down Sweaters” – I love knitting sweaters top-down to ensure they fit perfectly! All of your books are fabulous but I haven’t had a chance to pick up a copy of this one yet! 🙂

  26. I would love a copy of The Knitter’s Handy Book of Top-Down Sweaters. Just starting to get into top down and I just know your book will help me.

  27. I would love to have my very own copy of Knitted Gifts because it’s the book I once borrowed from a friend and would be used over and over again. I already have several of the others. Thanks for the opportunity!

  28. I would love Knitted Gifts. I’m always looking for something special to knit & gift!

  29. Ann, I would love a copy of Lace Style, because I love knitting lace (now that I’ve mastered it), and because your books are wonderful…and because I have almost all of your other books already!

  30. Wow, thanks. It would have to be The Knitter’s Handy Book of Top Down Sweaters. I have many of your others and have knitted from them. Now I’m working on replacing old worn sweaters, and this book would be perfect. Thanks again.


    Ann, I would love to get New Directions in Sock Knitting. I already own The Knitter’s Handy Book of Patterns and have made a few successful projects with it. I love the flexibility it gives me personalizing my projects to my friends and family’s needs. My Vegan sister has a need for a special pair of socks that she cannot buy in stores (her feet are swollen having never fully recovered after a car accident). I borrowed New Directions in Sock Knitting from the library and think I know which one would work. I would love to add this innovative book to my knitting library!

  32. I’ve read so many good things about The Knitter’s Handy Book of Top-Down Sweaters, and since I’m fairly miserable at knitting sweaters that actually fit, this book would be my pick. Thanks for the giveaway.

  33. I’m a sockknitter. So I would love to win New Directions in Sockknitting. I’d like to try some of the innovative tecniques described in the book. I have most of your other books already… Maura

  34. Hi Ann,

    I would choose your book The Knitter’s Handy Book of Top Down Sweaters as this is a construction method that I am interested in learning more about. Thank you.

  35. I would love to win a copy of Simple Style. I like the idea of simple lines for garments and love your other Style books.

  36. Teresa R Roberts

    Wrap Style would be my choice since I already own so many of my other favorites of yours. Thanks so very much!

  37. Valerie Bishop

    How fun! I would love to have the Scarfstyle2 book! These project are just right for me.

  38. Peggy Dellasala

    Well this was a hard decision because any one of these books would be great too own. I would really love to own Lace Style. I love knitting and the look of lace and would love learning more about it.

  39. Cheryl Whitmore

    Scarfs Style 2 would be my choice. I have several of your books and I think they are some of the BEST! Your explanations of “why” stitches do what they do and your suggestions to be a better knitter are so helpful! The sock books are definitely my favorite and I have used several. Thanks so much for all you do to help everyone excel at this awesome craft.

  40. Andrea Collette

    What a lovely giveaway! I’m interested in perfecting my sock-making skills, but sweaters are my passion, and I enjoy knitting top-down sweaters, so I’d have to say The Knitter’s Handy Book of Top-Down Sweaters. Thank you!

  41. Roxanne Smart

    Well, for starters, I love knitting books (have several of Ann’s already) but since I’m really into lace knitting I would absolutely cherish owing Lace Style. June 11th being my 76th birthday, wouldn’t that be a wonderful present?!

    Thanks, Ann, for your generous give-away.
    Roxanne, RASmartWay@gmail.com

  42. I’m intrigued by “Getting Started Knitting Socks” an d “The Knitter’s Handy Book of Top-Down Sweaters”….
    As I’ve already have your “The Knitter’s Handy Book of Sweater Patterns” and I’ve just knitted my first socks, perhaps I should wish for “Getting Started Knitting Socks” and try and use some of the pretty sock yarn in my “collection” 🙂
    Thanks for your kind generosity!

  43. Sandra Ridgely

    I already have several of your books. They are all clearly written and have been very helpful as I’ve made my way back into knitting. I’ve always used patterns and would like to venture into adjusting for my size and gauge. Therefore, I would LOVE to win a copy of “The Knitter’s Handy Book of Patterns.” What a wonderful opportunity for us knitters and crocheters. Thank you!

  44. Thank you so much for such a generous raffle! I would love to win The Knitter’s Handy Book of Top Down Sweaters. I’m almost finished with my first top-down sweater and have loved the process, and that book is one of the few of yours that isn’t currently in my personal library.

    Thank you again, Ann.

  45. Melinda Myers

    I would love the Lace Style Book. I love the details that Lace provides in a project.

  46. Oh, it would be great to own The Knitters Handy Book of Top Down Sweaters! Thank-you for a chance in this generous giveaway. Lynn

  47. Sharyn Sutherland

    I would love the Crocheter’s Handy Guide to Yarn Requirements. I know it is a humble request, but I have the knitter’s version and it is always in my bag – just in case I need to buy even more yarn! Also, the postage to Australia on this one won’t break the bank!

  48. I have your Scarf Style 2 book checked out from my local library right now! I love it!

  49. Would love the top down sweater book! Love the idea of being able to mix and match and personalize!

    Thanks for the opportunity;)

  50. Thanks Ann for the generous offer. I’d love a copy of “Favorite Socks”. I have several of your books, so it was hard to decide which one to add. Since socks are my portable, always with me, knitting project, it would be fun to have some new patterns to try.

  51. I have all the “Style” books but “Lace Style” I didn’t even know about it…how did that happen!?! I would love to see/own it.

  52. My pick is The Knitters Handy Book of Top Down Sweaters. Love my sock Knitting books.

  53. Asta LaBianca

    Thank you for this opportunity. I’d very much like the Top Down Sweaters Handybook (I don’t think I’ve got the words quite in the right order, but I think you understand.)

  54. Look at all of your incredible books! I’d love to have a copy of Sock Knitting Masterclass.

  55. Elizabeth Spencer

    Hello Ann, I would love to have a copy of `New Direction in Sock Knitting ‘ because I have your beginning sock book and I would love to add to the collection. Thanks for the opportunity.

  56. I’d love Scarf Style 2, I think it’s one of the few I don’t already have! However be aware I’m in New Zealand, so postage might make you think twice.

  57. New Directions in Sock Knitting would expand my knitting in many new directions!

  58. Pattie Macauley

    I already own several of your books? Even have a couple signed copies!
    The one I’d like to add to my library is New Directions in Sock Knitting.

  59. I own quite a few of your books already, but would like to add “The Knitter’s Handy Book of Top Down Sweaters” to my library. Enjoyed meeting you at the Knit for Fun Retreat in Savannah. It was my first Ann Budd Retreat, but won’t be my last. Thanks for this generous offer.

    I would love to add Sock Knitting Master Class to my Ann Budd collection!

  61. I have your book “Handy Book of Patterns” and use it all the time! I would like to try your book on purses/bags, “Bag Style”. 🙂 Love your work.

  62. I have a lot of your books already, but don’t have any of the …..Style. The Lace Style would be wonderful to have.

  63. I have a couple of your book already! I would be interest in Top Down Sweaters, I have never knit a sweater and I am intimidated about starting one. I think a new book from you might give me the kick in the pants I need to just cast on and knit!

  65. I would love a copy of your Color Style book. I own so many of your books, it was good to let myself go through the complete list, and with a July birthday coming, maybe if I don’t win one, put it on my b.d. list!
