GREAT SOCK BOOK CONTEST!

Congratulations to our winner TREK!

Strange things happen to a writer when a) she's finishing a book; b) and has cabin fever; c)not to mention it's not only early spring but full moon time; and d) SAID WRITER HASN'T HAD TIME TO KNIT!

So what do deadlining writers with no time to knit do when they're not writing? They read knitting books, that's what. And sometimes they buy the same beloved book twice because they're not currently playing with a full set of Addis.

That's why I'm offering my extra copy of the brilliant Charlene Schurch's MORE SENSATIONAL KNITTED SOCKS to the lucky winner of this week's contest. (You'd have to pry my copy of book #1 and book #2 from my cold dead fingers . . . )

Claim it in comments and the random number generator will pick the winner on Friday. Couldn't be simpler, could it? And how better to greet spring than with a brand new pair of handknit socks?

I haven't had a chance to look at book #2 yet but loved book #1. Someone on the yahoo Socknitters list had the suggestion of taking book #1 to be rebound with a spiral binding so it stays flat when open. It was the best $3 I've spent in a long time!
