knitting at home

This book is like the all purpose knitting book. Projects for your home, your kids, your friends or yourself. There are 60 projects (SIXTY!) something for everyone that is for sure.
Hats, gloves, mittens and socks.
Sweaters for adults and children. (This hooded house coat looks like something I would live in.)
Hot water bottle covers, tea cozies, cup warmers and place mats.
Felted bags, baby slippers, dolls and baby blankets.
Pillows, wraps, throws and totes.
Honestly, there is a project for everyone. (Oh, there is a little crochet, too!)

I have a couple to giveaway. Leave me a comment between now and Monday the 20th at 12 p.m. EST. The random generator will choose the names.

Happy Friday!
