it's a good one

I honestly can not say enough great things about this book. I think it spent an entire week on my nightstand as I read it and enjoyed the photos before bed. Debbie Bliss could not have done a better job.
Not only are the patterns some of the cutest little knits I have ever seen, but the useful information in this book is beyond fantastic.
Filled with eighteen patterns including garments and accessories for babies and toddlers. (I would have SO been all over those top two sweaters for my Libby and the bottom two for my boys!)
She gives you the pattern and the knowledge and information on how to make it your own. You can sketch out your own design and implement it into the patterns provided. Or not. It is completely up to you. (Of course it is!)
And you guessed it. Tara over at SoHo publishing is offering this book to one of my readers. Leave me a comment between now and Monday the 26th at 12 pm EST and I will draw a name.

Happy Friday! Happy Weekend!

It looks great! I'd love a copy. :-)

Deborah said...

Perfect timing-I have an upcoming baby shower that I wanted to make something special for!

Shweta Shankar Khatri said...

Thanks for the review. I would love to have a copy.

Mommy said...

Ooohh! Love Debbie Bliss. I knit quite a few of her designs for baby showers before having three of my own. With twin 2 year olds and a 3 month old, knitting is a little bit tricky at times, but I certainly have three beautiful little models! Would love the book.

Cabbage said...

Nice! I'd love to have a copy, especially as it usually takes my library quite awhile to get new knitting books in!

Laurie said...

Looks like a great book, and I'm of the age where everyone I know is makin' babies, so I'm makin' baby sweaters!

Oooh, that looks excellent. I like working on baby stuff, because it has a quick completion ratio (great for extra satisfaction), and they are so darn cute!

cpeezers said...

This book looks great. I plan at some point to knit and kind of stockpile some baby things to have ready for gifts! Just think if I could kind of design them on my own. Thanks for offering a copy of the book! It would be nice to receive it. Either way, I think I am going to have to have it!
