I have a lot of knitting books (well, and crochet books, and sewing books, and crafting books…). I get books sent to me to review. I buy books. Heck, I even write books. It has added up over the five years I’ve written for About and the many years I’ve been crafty.
Don’t believe me?
Here’s my knitting bookshelf (pay no attention to the mess stacked in front of it). There are more books in the cabinet below. And on the filing cabinet next to that. And under my desk. And on my desk. And, probably, in just about every room in my house (there are, currently, no knitting books that I know of in any of the bathrooms, but that’s not always the case).
It’s a little crazy. And that’s not even to mention the three boxes (!) of knitting books in my attic that I’ve decided are not ones I need to keep.
Something has to give, and that something is me!
Want Some Books about Felting?
That book I mentioned above that I wrote, it’s about felting. So I thought it might be fun as a test to give away a few felting books and see how that goes. But I have tons of other books, so if you’re not into felting, just wait and I’m sure I’ll get to something you like soon.
So, this giveaway is for three books: Picture Yourself Felting Your Knitting (that’s mine!), Knitting Never Felt Better by Nicky Epstein and Feltique by Nikola Davidson and Brookelyn Morris. Those links are to my reviews on About; if you want to know more about my book click that link up at the top.
Now I should say that I would never give up my copy of Knitting Never Felt Better, but this excellent and super-inspiring book just came out in paperback and the publisher happened to send me another copy (which is still the hardcover version, go figure). Feltique is a good book, too, but it is not just for knitters; it actually covers a lot of other felting techniques and would be great for someone who wants to explore felting beyond knits.
Want to take these books off my hands for me? Add a comment to this post between now and the end of the day next Thursday, and I’ll use the fab random number generator to pick a winner. Tell me why you love felting, or what else you’d like to see me give away.
And please spread the word to your yarny friends! Thanks!
