  1. hi there !!! what a lovely little book lol no pun intended another one on my too buy list.

  2. Nice giveaway! I haven’t seen this book yet.

  3. I love knitting/crocheting small things. Instant gratification it’s the way to go. I often get frustrated and bored with something that is big. That’s why I have a large afghan in my closet that’s been in hibernation for quite awhile.

  4. Oh, I really like that little book…maybe I’ll win it!

  5. Congrats to Melissa!
    Gifted looks like a fun book!

  6. What a great looking book. I’d love to win a book that would help me use up little bits of yarn!

  7. i love doing small projects like the ones in this book

  8. Ooh! I was looking at this just the other day! How awesome would it be to win it!

  14. Kerrie can’t wait to hear the new cast. I the new site looks great.

  15. I enjoy your podcast, Kerri, and the little things you do like the teaching and the free designs. You’ll be busy now, with school on top of family, but I hope to hear you get an episode in whenever you can.

  16. HI. You made a mistake on ravelry Mrs.Kerrie. I hope i get this! It would be so fun for Christmas!!

    • You won! Send me your address and I will send this out to you ASAP :-)

  17. I mean you said that the drawing for this would be Oct1-Oct 31. Or am i wrong. Oh well. Love the site btw.

  18. I’ve seen some reviews of this book and it sounds interesting.

    My niece (the one I’ve gotten started on knitting) looked surprised when I told her I had recently crocheted some strings to tie toddler snack cups to wherever he’s sitting. (Yes, it’s actually a series of strings tied into loops and into each other — no long strings in loops for a small child, in case you were worried, thank you.) So I explained that it’s actually quite helpful for a knitter to know at least a little basic crochet (which is about all I know) — for bootie tie strings, which is how I made the snack cup tie strings or for edgings on knit garments — to look nice or keep things from stretching (such as the neckline of the Baby Surprise Jacket I gave her for her daughter). She apparently had the impression that it was one or the other and people didn’t do both. I disabused her of that notion, but haven’t broken it to her that there are so many people who do both at very high levels of skill. Her mother’s a crocheter, her grandmother (my mother) also, and neither of them knits. I’ve only got a few crochet basics — chain, slip st, sc (which I have to look up each time I use it, I admit). I haven’t managed to make any garments or blankets either — would rather knit.

    So maybe I should learn a little more crochet someday, but you know, there’s a whole lot more knitting to learn, too. Somebody mentioned tubular cast on…..I don’t know that yet….

  19. Hi Kerrie,

    I very much enjoy your podcasts. Last night I listened to THE DESIGNER IN YOU. I am having fun making (small)changes to patterns (mostly scarves) to fit the person who will receive the gift. I have not yet attempted to design anything, but I enjoyed hearing about these two books.

  20. This book looks lovely. I really enjoy your podcasts and am also enjoying your sock patterns. Keep up the wonderful work.

  21. Hi- Looks like a great book for the holidays. Patiently awaiting your review!
