take it off my hands, part II – Twinkle’s Weekend Knits

Twinkles Weekend Knits cover.jpg

Time for a book giveaway! I’ve got one copy of Twinkle’s Weekend Knits to give away.

This book showcases Wenlan Chia’s signature style of chunky knits and features patterns for various tops, sweaters, and lots of accessories. It’s a fair bit smaller then her other book, both in size and content, and focuses on smaller items like hats and scarves which would knit up super quick in crazy bulky yarn. If you love Twinkle, you’ll love this book!

To enter, just leave a comment! I’ll use a random number generator to pick a winner.

Comments will close Thursday, April 17, at 11:59 PM EDT.
