Today we are very happy to bring to you... a knitting book giveaway!
We first met one of Rebecca Danger's cute monsters last spring at our local yarn shop. We hit it off right away. Fastforward several months... and we met Rebecca in person at TNNA and had a great visit together! She was in the kind company of Mr. Danger, who is really very nice even though his name might sound a little scary. Rebecca was at TNNA launching her new book, and so we were, so it was an exciting time for both of us!
While we were visiting, we decided it would be fun to do a giveaway of each other's books... so here we are! Rebecca's book has a lot of great information about choosing yarns, knitting techniques, and clear instructions for customizing your own one-of-a-kind knitter monsters. There are a lot of fun patterns in the Big Book of Knitted Monsters...
There's Dot, the Dress Up Box Monster...
and Hugo, the Couch Potato Monster.
I think Cecil the Computer Monster might be our favorite!
Which one do you like best?
You can view all of the fun patterns here on Ravelry.
And you can keep up with Rebecca Danger here on the web.
And... you can win a copy of this fun book here on our blog!
Simply leave a comment and a way to contact you (via email, web, blog, or Ravelry) and we'll pick a winner within the week!
