Karen McKenna - designer, CGOA board member, and friend - has a brand new book out with Leisure Arts! Hand-Picked Gloves and Mitts is a clever set of patterns - and I get to give away a copy to one lucky winner here on Moogly!
Here's the blurb from Leisure Arts:
Sized for toddlers, children, and adults, the design options in Hand-Picked Gloves and Mitts by Karen McKenna make it easy to crochet hand warmers with personal style. Choices include fingerless or full-coverage gloves and mitts, with long or short cuffs in eight fun looks. For lightweight yarn, there are regular mittens or fingerless mitts with or without a flip top. For medium weight yarn, there are fingerless gloves or regular gloves with or without touch screen slits on the index fingers and thumbs. Cuff patterns include Popcorn, Basic Rib, Long Rib, Cabled, Ruffle, Long Shell, Faux Rib, and Lace V-Stitch. These handmade gloves and mitts make great gifts for friends and family.
How cool is this? You pick the features you want - the yarn weight, fingers or fingerless, cuff style - and Hand-Picked Gloves and Mitts helps you put it all together into a custom pair of gloves or mitts that's just right for you! Love it!
I got to take a peek inside, and share a little bit of it with you:

With hands cold most of the time, I could learn a lot from this book. Winning would be superb !~! Thanks for having the giveaway.
If I don't win this book, I may have to buy it. ? I tried several times last year to make mittens, and I always ended up with big gaps or with the sizing all off. Clearly I need help! And I have never even attempted gloves. My city has an annual drive for hats and gloves/mittens for the homeless. I've made hats for it, but I would love to add gloves and be able to give away some sets.
I had a hard time finding the url for pininrest because I have the app but I did put it under my pininrest giveaways my pininrest name is Karol Beaufore. Thank you I wold like to win.It looks like a great book.

Thank you so much. I can't wait to get it. I would love to have a paperback copy if that's all right.
