books... to receive

I'm sure by now, you have seen and heard about these two terrific books. They are both filled with fabulous projects and information for knitters of all levels. I would be showing you more photos of the contents of each book, however, my camera (MY CAMERA) just went kerplunk and I will be without (WITHOUT) for 4-5 weeks (WEEKS) while Ritz Camera ships it away to the nikon camera fairies where they will try to repair it. You have no idea how much this bums me out. The poor girl behind the counter didn't know what to do when I started to cry. (YES, CRY!) Oh! And to top it off, I left a pair of fingerless gloves (that were my husbands!) on the counter and when I went back to get them they were gone. (LONG GONE!)
Book #1: Nicky Epstein Knitting a Kiss in Every Stitch. Truly one of my favorite books of hers. I love the layout of this book. A chapter each for kids, girls, guys and special friends. An entire book filled with projects to give. (Who says you can't give to yourself?)
The "guys" chapter consists of five projects including these fisherman's gloves. (love)
How cute are these for the jet setter in your life? (free pattern)
The reversible baby hoodie is absolutely adorable. (totally)
Book #2: Color by Kristin. Not only is this book filled with unbelievable color projects, but there is also information on how to design your own beautiful (colorful) knits.
Kristin talks about how color inspires her and shares so much of the information she has acquired along her knitting journey.
Honestly, both books would make a great gift for one of your knitting friends... or yourself.
And guess what? If you want a copy of either of these books, leave me a comment by midnight Wednesday, November 25th. I will draw two names on Thanksgiving day. Please let me know if you have a preference.

gah! i'd love to win either one of these books - although the "knit a kiss" one pretty well calls to me through the computer, so maybe that one a little bit more?

Lindseyrose said...

They both sound so wonderful! I can't choose- no preference! Happy Thanksgiving!

mette said...

how generous... i would love to win the knitting kissing book... if at all : )

Laura said...

What a nice giveaway -- I think "Knitting a Kiss..." sounds like a great book.

Ashley said...

oh wow! either one would be great! although a kiss with every stitch sounds nice ;)

Wylie said...

I would love to win either of the books! I think I would give it to my daughter for Christmas!

Martha said...

Wow! They both sound great...what fun!

Kathleen said...

How nice! I would be thrilled with either book. Thank you and Happy Thanksgiving!

Prairie Girl said...

Sorry to hear about your camera and your hubby's fingerless gloves!

But thank you for the lovely giveaway. If I had the choice I'd love Knitting a Kiss, but would be grateful for either option.

eight feet said...

Sorry about your camera--I know that I'd be lost without mine for that long. I would love to be entered for Color by Kristin--my LYS has items from her trunk show right now and I am totally inspired by her designs and color expertise. Thanks for the generous giveaway!

Trisha said...

Oohh, how fun! I really like the Color by Kristin book. I am dying to try fair isle.

Hilary said...

Oh, I SO want that Nicky Epstein book. I already have Kristin's! My dad has been bugging me for fingerless gloves... with fingers... so that pattern would be perfect! Especially since I don't have a gift for him for Christmas yet. :-)

I'm sorry your camera fritzed! That must bug you a lot, especially this time of year. Hopefully the Nikon fairies will be especially fast in their repair.

Hilary

shelly said...

What a cool giveaway! Sorry to hear about your camera AND your mitts!!! Well, I guess you can think of it one of two ways, either they really needed something to warm their hot little hands or hope that they're allergic to wool and get hives...I'm on the fence caused I'd be pretty miffed but it is Thanksgiving and all :/

CelticCastOn said...

i've never heard of either but the knit a kiss sounds interesting!

Meg said...

First, I'm so sorry you're without your camera! Here's hoping the Nikon fairies will get it done quickly!

And second, my birthday is on Wednesday, so here's hoping that I'm lucky--either book would be fabulous!

Rebecca said...

Thanks for having such a great giveaway! I would love to enter the drawing. The first book interests me most but I'd be so happy to win either. :)

Heather said...

I love books - more inspiration!

PghCathy said...

Either of these books would be great to own & pour over, dreaming up projects! I'm a faithful lurker on Kristin's blog...she's been showing us her designs & the inspiration behind them. Count me in!

Lorien said...

Sorry about your camera and husband's gloves:(

The first book sounds the most interesting, but I would jump for joy if I won either.

tif said...

Aw! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving! The "knit a kiss" looks lovely!

Anonymous said...

That is so thoughtful of you!
I would love either book, but more importantly I would LOVE to know where you got the bracelet that you are wearing in the 'book' picture (and other pictures). I LOVE it!! Sorry about your camera.

Lnknits said...

No camera for 5 weeks??? I'd cry too! Especially with the holidays coming up! Good luck getting it back sooner.(and I'd love a chance to win "knit a kiss" thank you.)

I would love the chance to win a copy of the knitting a kiss book.

Jodi said...

Oh no, camera-less and mitt-less?!? That's a sad tale.

I'd love a copy of either book. Both sound neat!

Ella said...

My heartfelt sympathy to you. Just the mere thought of having to be without camera ... here's hoping the camera fairies will fix your camera even faster that asap.

As for the books, both sound great.
Ella

My Love is..... said...

I just noticed your header... gorgeous work. What a great giveaway I have the Nicky Epstein one on my bookshop wishlist...fingers crossed!!

jtkpatch said...

I love the blog and I wish to win these great knitting reads! Thanks for the give aways, great holiday cheer!Sorry about the bad news on you side of things.

Kit Nat said...

Both of the books sound wonderful. I think if I had to pick, knit a kiss sounds like a wonderful book for me. Thank you for the generous give away

northernknitter said...

Hmmm my first choice would be the Nicky Epstein book - I love her books the images are so lovely to look at never mind the image of "knit a kiss" .

TD wool design said...

i'm sooo sorry about your camera. maybe it will be a shorter wait! fingers crossed for you!

Phoebe said...

I like the look of those gloves in the Nicky Epstein book. I need a good man glove pattern. Thanks for the reviews!

sorry to hear about your camera. on a happy (unrelated!) note, I made your pumpkin cookies and they were awesome! thanks for sharing the recipe.

kim said...

Oh, no!!!!! Not THE CAMERA!!!!! I've been wondering about that Nicky Epstein book (as if I have time for more knits). Happy travels! x

Jemima Jones Beck said...

I'd love to win either one. The colorwork one would be more of a challenge for me though because I tend to avoid colorwork as much as possible!

Sarah Jackson said...

oh no!! I would cry too. Poor Leslie.

Karen L R said...

what a gem of a giveaway! color by kristen would add nicely to my new knitting library...happy thanksgiving right back at you!

Teddi Taylor said...

I almost cried when I had to send my camera away, too. They told me 6-12 WEEKS! Thankfully they underpromised and over-delivered and it (happily) came back in 4 weeks. I really hope that the same happens to you. I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to win the knit a kiss in every stitch book. That exactly what I like to think of as I knit: a prayer in every stitch!

sallymi said...

Thanks for making me think about knitting once again. Would love to have a copy of the knit a kiss looks like a good one

Mandy said...

This is so nice of you! I have never commented before, but I would like to say that I love your blog, projects, and photography! Happy Thanksgiving!

Anonymous said...

I am so in love with Kristen's color combinations. They scream happy, as I would scream happy if I were to win it! Happy Family Day~Jan

Jane said...

Thank you! I would love the color book because I'm so intimidated by it.

Sorry about your camera. I would love to win the Nicky Epstein book.

Jane said...

leslie! Do you have a camera back-up? I would cry too!

peaknits said...

Oh yay! How exciting! I would especially love the Nicki Epstein, but either would be a welcome addition to my library:)

Nancy said...

how nice of you...would love "knit a kiss"...btw...I love your blog...I check every day in hopes you have posted. Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving. Either book looks divine and a terrific way to spend Christmas vacation. Thanks for the giveaway opportunity!

Debbie said...

I have just taught myself to knit socks! I am so pleased but I don't know where to go from here. I would love to win one of these books for inspiration.

slosinj said...

Both books look great. I have been looking hard at Knitting with Color. It looks really great.
Susann

Love both of them (and you look so cute "reading".) Thanks for the tip on the white shirts, also. I have ended up with quite a few!

amywb said...

ooo, goodie, I'd love to win! Sorry to hear about your camera.

Kelly said...

Those look like lovely books! I would love the Nicky Epstein book!

the nest said...

as my son would say, "sad face" about your camera and the fingerless gloves. it just goes to show how rattled you were to part with your camera. :(

i would love to have the knit a kiss book; really either one would be happily received.

Susan said...

Count me in! I'd love either, but the first would be the one I'd choose if I was picking. Thanks!

Beth said...

What a great giveaway! I would love to win either book - they both look fabulous.

Windy Knitty said...

So sorry about the camera! The screen on ours broke a few months ago, so you couldn't preview the images. Kind of defeats the purpose of a digital camera:)

What a great giveaway--I'd love to win either, but if I had to choose I'd say Knitting a Kiss.

Happy Thanksgiving!

mrsbeaver said...

Both books look inspiring- but the knit a kiss one especially. Happy Thanksgiving!

Kate said...

Two great books! Wow - thanks for the gift idea. Both look GREAT! Kate

house on hill road said...

i'm crying for you! that just sucks.
not the books - those look really nice, but you know the drill, keep me out of the drawing. ;)

Kat said...

So sorry about the camera and the fingerless gloves. Not that it makes you feel better, but we just lost Inishmore at our house (actually at a Number Theory Seminar.) Both books look amazing.

Nantucket Dreams said...

Happy thanksgiving, Leslie. Hope you have a wonderful holiday with your family!

martha - ca knitter said...

*I would be bummed too if my camera went kerplunk, darn.
*I say the girl at the counter helped herself to your gloves. Let's just hope if it wasn't her that someone who absolutely needed a pair of gloves has them.
*If my name is picked for the drawing, I'd really like the second book full of color - beautiful!
Here's hoping you find the gloves and your camera is fixed, pronto!

Barbara Campbell Thomas said...

oh what a great giveaway--I'd love to check out the nicky epstein book...

MadMad said...

Oh, I am soo, sooooo sorry about the camera. And the gloves! My goodness - that is a terrible day, for sure. No need to enter me, I have both books, and you're right: they're great! Just wanted to add my camera/glove condolences to the list. But wait! How are we going to have pics? Five whole weeks?! That's nuts!

Jessica said...

What great books-Nothing like a great new knitting book. I would have cried right there at the counter too if my camera died.

Sara said...

I'm always up for a drawing! Yay! The Kissing Book looks great. Thanks for the chance...Happy Thanksgiving!

Peggy said...

Your blog makes me so happy.

And thanks for the chance to win!

michele said...

oh no on the camera!!! and on the gloves too.

might be a good time to explore making a pinhole camera - they are tons of fun. e-mail me if you would like some links to directions on making them.

this is shameless but I'd love the Kristin book.

tracie said...

I love your blog. Your knits are so wonderful to look at. Nicky Epstein will be at our local knitting store in December..what a perfect way to see her and have something for her to sign.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed!

donna said...

Very generous of you! Two fantastic looking books, although the Nicky Epstein one does make my heart beat a little faster!

KnitPastis said...

Ahh, I feel so sad that you cried and left his fingerless mitts on the ocunter. This happened to me with my favorite parka vest last winter. It would be a wonderful surprise if your camera comes back sooner. Fingers crossed for you!
First book sounds really cute.

Wishing you a Happy Thanksgiving!!

Wendi said...

Exactly how I felt when I took my sewing machine to the shop, and was without it for a month and a half while the part was ordered! I think I'd rather be without my car than my sewing machine!

Katrina said...

I'm sorry about your camera and your gloves. That stinks. Thanks for letting us sign up for the giveaway, though. That's nice! I'd love A Kiss in Every Stitch if I am selected. Have a happy Thanksgiving!

Suzanne said...

Oh Leslie! I only know you through your blog but I know how important your camera. I hope its trip to the camera hospital is quick and it's better than ever upon its return.

I would not look a gift book in the mouth but I do love the color wheel in Kristin's and think I could learn a lot from her.

Maggie said...

love the 'kiss in every stitch' title. It would be my preference, thanks

Rose said...

Wow, you have a lot of comments already! So sorry about your camera and lost gloves. Thanks so much for the luggage tag link; I love them!! So, please enter me for the Knit a Kiss book! Happy Thanksgiving!

Mickey said...

Ooooh, I'd love to win either of these books. If I HAD to choose, I'd pick #2. What a fabulous give-away! Happy Thanksgiving!! :)

Caffeine Girl said...

Wow, two of the most colorful designers out there. I love them both, but I have to admit that I'd chose Kristin Nicholas if I had to choose.

So sorry about your camera and the gloves. Leaving the gloves behind is so much something that I would do!

Angelia Batson said...

I would love to have the book on color. That is my biggest challenge. Hope that you have a Happy Thanksgiving.

eagillette said...

wow, such beautiful books! thanks for offering giveaway :)

Anonymous said...

WOW!!! What a blessing you are to share those amazing books. Either one would be a blessing. THANKS Kelly

Katrina said...

Sorry to hear about the camera...both of those books sound simply DE-VINE! I am always looking at new ways to use my knitting to give as gifts so the first one sounds good BUT I would love to find a way to use all those color yarns that I have stashed away...so either book works for me. Such a great give-away...

Anonymous said...

WOW!!! What a blessing to share with us. I would enjoy either of the books. what a treat. I hope your camera gets back to you fast. I love seeing all the great pictures. may you be blessed through the holidays and always. kelly

rosemary said...

sorry to hear about your camera and gloves...
wow i can't believe you are giving these books away!

knittinbrit_in_wi said...

I'm pretty sure I would do exactly the same thing, although I might of started wailing.

Wouldn't it be nice if they gave you a loaner/courtesy camera to use while yours is in the shop, like they do with vehicles when your car is in for repairs?!

Jen said...

Oh, my goodness! I would LOVE either one of these books! Thanks for the giveaway!

kristinknits said...

I haven't seen either of these books yet and both look lovely!

What a dissapointing trip to the camera store! I hope there is a back up...your blog will just not be the same with out your wonderful pics for 4-5 weeks : (

Kristin

Lisa Clarke said...

oh, not the camera! Id have cried, too...

Both books are intriguing, although the first one calls to me ever so slightky more...

Hope the canera-free time passes quickly.

kathytypestoo said...

bloggers are so generous-i just can't believe it :) both books look great, but i think i would like a kiss in every stitch best. thanks for the chance to win-happy thanksgiving :)

Sidney said...

Oh my gosh: sorry about the camera. And the gloves. Maybe there is a silver lining in there somewhere.
Thanks for being generous in the midst of all that. I wonder what the odds are that I will win this time...

Nina said...

I will miss seeing your photos over these 4/5 weeks, hope you still have access to another camera.
I would love to win the Kristen Nicolas colour book, as I would like to take the next step into colourwork.

debrarae said...

would love either book but the color by kirsten would fill a gap.
sorry about your camera will miss your photos.....

Siena said...

I have been without my camera this fall - so you have my deepest sympathy! I would love a new knitting book - "Knitting a kiss" would be my first choice.

Bárbara said...

I want one!!!

Teresa said...

Hi its the stalker brit lady,
These books are gorgeous but who can resist a kiss with every stitch. It just calls to you, irresistably yummy.

Sorry to hear about the camera.

kimberly said...

How fun. I really should buy myself a knitting book, but winning knitting a kiss would be great! thanks for the opportunity!

Cheryl said...

What a great giveaway. Sorry about your gloves and camera. The Nicky Epstein book would definitely be my first choice, but maybe a color work book would force me to branch out?

S Huber said...

Hi, I'm a new knitter, a friend sent me a link to your blog....looks like fun, the "knit a kiss' book sounds interesting to me. Happy Thanksgiving :)
~Sandy

Vickie said...

I would be thrilled to have either one of those books.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Sorry about losing the gloves and how long the camera is going to take. Both of those books look great.

Enjoy your Thanksgiving and thank you for this giveaway opportunity. Either book would be happily received.

Celestial said...

Eep, sorry about the camera. At least it is fixable. And the fingerless gloves...at least it's a good excuse to knit some more?

What a sweet book giveaway! I think either book would be lovely to receive as a prize. I haven't looked at either in person but I've heard wonderful reviews.

Margie said...

Wow...what a great giveaway! I would LOVE Knitting a Kiss in Every Stitch!! I had the chance to see it at the bookstore the other day and it's FABULOUS! I have it on my things-to-get-after-Christmas-bills-are-paid list but gosh..who wants to wait THAT long?!?!

Yikes! I have to come out of lurkdom for this. I've been enjoying your blog for quite awhile. Thank you so much for sharing your craft with us; it brightens my day to see your work and hear your thoughts.

I love Kristen's books and colorwork! The colors are so cheerful and the patterns so happy. I've made a few projects inspired by her work and have her book Kristen Knits already. I would just loooove to win Color by Kristen!

How kind of you to give away such nice books. I would love to have the N. Epstein book. Her stuff is so inspirational.

larissa said...

I'm so very sorry about your camera (and the gloves). But please KEEP TAKING PICTURES - use a P&S, a disposable, your phone - anything really! Because it's not the camera that makes the photo - it's your amazing vision and ability to capture an entire story in just one shot. You are so talented and your amazing images always inspire! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving - and take lots of pictures.

Jennifer Kolakowski said...

I would absolutely love either book! They look wonderful. Have a great Thanksgiving!
Thank you for the chance to win.
Jen Kolakowski

Knitting is a labour of love. Knitting a kiss is a perfect title! Heading home to Michigan from Ontario for Thanksgiving on the 25th. Thanks for the blog and hope your camera gets better fast!

I have Kristin's book so I would love Nicky's book.

Alison said...

So, so, so, SORRY about your poor camera! I mean poor you for having to go without for so long...

Kimberley said...

I would love knitting a kiss so much. Please please!

Kirsten said...

Thanks for the give-away opportunity! Would love either, but maybe #1 a wee bit more.

Best.

What a sweet giveaway! I would love Knitting a Kiss. Sounds super fun.

I'd love either book!

Good luck with the camera fairies. I love all your photos. Happy Thanksgiving!!

Gah! I don't know what I would do without my camera for a day, let alone 4-5 WEEKS, and my camera is nothing fancy! Yikes! I brought mine along on a camping trip once and realized after our arrival that I had left the memory card at home, in the computer... I was so disappointed. I really can't even imagine... and if you're anything like me, losing those fingerless gloves, on top of what already happened, would have really put you in a bad mood. I'm so sorry!

You are too kind to offer a giveaway like this. Knitting a Kiss in Every Stitch sounds like a fun, sweet find.

I hope the rest of your week goes much better! Happy Thanksgiving!

Are you SERIOUS? No CAMERA? Can't you BORROW one? I don't know what I'd do and this really bothers me that you are without your camera. I get inspiration from your photos on a regular basis, parent vicariously and believe I can knit...and this certainly will not do.

Huzzah, I love online giveaways! I would be thrilled with either book! Though if I really had to pick, I would lean toward the "knitting a kiss" book. It sounds darling!

Oh those books look lovely. I would probably get more use out of Knit a Kiss - but . . . g

Mike and Erica said...

Hey, I'm Erica (named after Susan Lucci's character - Erica Kane - on the soap All My Children). I'm a lover of books and of knitting. My sisters Deb and Kat gifted me with knitting lessons back in 2008. Since then, I've knit a scarf that's kept a friend warm on her travels from Florida to Minnesota and Alaska. I'm always looking for knitting inspiration which is sometimes hard for a Florida gal such as myself.I'm currently working on a Noah's Ark baby afghan (Michele Wilcox design) for my nephew who is due on March 28, 2010 (my 30-something bday!). I'm also working on some Christmas gifts for my sweet daughters and a hat for my DH. Happy, Happy Thanksgiving!

Yow, I am in love with both books! I have one of Kristen's other books, and it's one of my favorite sources of inspiration!

I feel for you in this traumatic camera moment. I had to run without my ipod for a few weeks, and it was like someone had stuffed my shoes with kryptonite - it's hard to get by without the stuff we use everyday!

Either book would be great! Count me in and thank you!

I already have Kristin's book, so would love to have Nicky Epstein's. I'm a big fan of both women. Thanks for a great give-a-way!
