in paperback

Happy Friday.
But more importantly, Happy September!
I know I said I love August, and I do. I just love September so much more. My absolute favorite month of the entire year.
Guess what? Two of the greatest books are now available in paperback.
Nicky Epstein's knitting beyond the edge is filled with just that. All those edge stitches that make a piece look so lovely. More than 150 edging embellishments for cuffs, collars, angles, corners, closures and necklines.
Knit Simple Knitting Workshops is composed of step by step directions for dozens of knitting techniques that can help you through any of your knitting binds. An extremely helpful resource to have around.
I have two of each of the books to giveaway. If interested, leave a comment here before Monday the 5th at noon, and the random number generator will choose 4 names. If you have a preference, please let me know, I will try to accommodate.
Enjoy your long weekend.
(Still waiting for a delivery. I have a good feeling it is coming today.)

Either one would look great on my bookshelf when it wasn't being toted around and flipped through. :-)

Do you think Irene has waylaid your package?

How exciting. Fingers crossed. Hope your delivery came in.

witknitter said...

Isn't the suspense of waiting for delivery the absolute pits? The roller coaster of anticipation, then the disappointment. It drives me crazy, especially when I miscalculated and didn't have the foresight to order extra the first time and am waiting on a re-order to finish a wip.
Wonderful giveaway. Knitting Beyond the Edge is on my Amazon wishlist and am going there now to list Simple Knitting Workshop too. I can always take one off if I get lucky with the contest!

I just came across your blog after a meeting with some Bhutanese women living in Oakland that I am trying to help start a knitting business. They don't know much English and don't have jobs. They lived in refugee camps in Nepal for the past 20 years. But, they do know how to knit! So, looking for all kind of knitting supplies to help them. Anything would be great.

Denise said...

Hi Lesley, both are great books, I'd love to win the 'edge' book ;-) keeping my fingers crossed.
