'Comfort Knitting & Crochet Babies & Toddlers' book giveaway

If you happen to be a knitter who crochets, or a crocheter who knits and you’re looking for some new and exciting garments and blankets to make for babies and toddlers, then you’re sure to be delighted with the projects featured in “Comfort Knitting & Crochet: Babies & Toddlers, 50 Knit and Crochet Designs Using Berroco’s Comfort and Vintage Yarns” (STC Craft, a Melanie Falic Book/$19.95) by Norah Gaughan and the Berroco Design Team.

Featured Projects, ranging from traditional to modern, include toys, a wrapped cardigan, a hooded sweater, a dress, lots of hats, a butterfly blanket and more. Each project includes easy-to-follow, step-by-step instructions, a photograph of the finished project and either a stitch pattern or illustration. Advanced beginners and beyond will enjoy picking and choosing from the wide range of unique projects. Besides, what better way to welcome a new baby to the family than with a soft and cuddily hand knitted or crocheted piece made with lots of love?

If you’d like a chance to win a copy of the book, just email me at jbrown@detnews.com with a short story about a hand-knitted baby garment you made in the past. Please put the word “Comfort” in the subject line, and REMEMBER to include your name and address.

Good Luck, and Happy Knitting AND Crocheting!!!
