Introducing Knitted Mitts & Mittens: A Q&A and Giveaway!

Congratulations to Carrie B, winner of the Knitted Mitts & Mittens giveaway! :D Thank you so much to everyone who entered and spread the word! To purchase your own copy, see the links below the interview!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Knitted Mitts & Mittens: 25 Fun and Fashionable Designs for Fingerless Gloves, Mittens, and Wrist Warmers is a new knitting pattern book just out, by Amy Gunderson. And while you might think it’s an odd season to be thinking about mitts and mittens (unless you’re in the Southern Hemisphere) – let me tell you, they’re the perfect project for the warmer months! Small and light, they keep the yarn up off your lap, and you’ll be so far ahead of the game come the holidays. Plus, if you knit as slow as I do, you can use the extra time. ;) So today, I get to give away a copy of this fab book to one lucky winner in the US! But first, let’s learn about the book and the author.

Knitted Mitts & Mittens - read the interview, and enter to win the book! Giveaway is US only, and ends 4/15/14 at 12am Central US Time.
