Fantastic Knitting Book giveaway {from Rebecca Danger}

Have you been enjoying the knitting series by Rebecca Danger?
(Her 6th and final lesson in the series was posted earlier today, or you can click here.)
If you somehow missed it, the whole series can be found by clicking on the image below:

Rebecca Danger (blog found here) is such a clever knitting pattern designer and has a fantastic collection of knitting.
Just check out some of her patterns that she has available (plus tons more) in her shop, here.
Adorable, adorable, and more adorable.  Wow.
Rebecca also recently came out with a knitting book, packed with knitted monster patterns…….
…………………all designed by her.  (Book available here.)
She has included great photography of helpful tips……
There are 20 brand new patterns, complete with all you need to know to create her sweet little monsters.
What I love about Rebecca’s monsters, is that each monster has a name and a personality.  She gives descriptions of each of her little monsters……which are so fun to read.
Are you in love?
Don’t you want one of each?
Yeah, me too!
And since we’ve all been taught the basics, it’s time to put those knitting lessons to practice and refine our stitches and become better at reading patterns (and use the tips from the post earlier today)……….and then knit some of these little monsters.  Hooray.
And good news…….Rebecca is giving away one of her Knitted Monsters pattern books to one of you Make It and Love It readers.

Wouldn’t you like to add to your knitting book collection?  Or start one?
Or give it to a friend/mom/sister who loves to knit?
Well, here’s how to enter to win:
(**Please note: You must enter in a separate comment for each entry.)

  • Head on over to Rebecca’s shop here, and then tell me what your favorite pattern is from her shop in a comment below. (And leave your email address so that I can contact you if you have won.  If you want to disguise it, that’s just fine.  i.e.: makeitandloveit {at} gmail {dot} com)
  • Blog, Facebook, or Tweet about this giveaway, and then tell me you did, each with a separate comment.

4 different entry possibilities.

**Not sure how to leave a comment?

Make sure you are at the Make It and Love It site (not reading from an email or google reader) and scroll down to the bottom of this post.  You will see in smaller print, “Posted By Ashley”, then a time, and then the word “Comments” with a number by it.  That number signifies how many people have left comments.  Click on the word “Comments” and a new screen will pop up.  On the right side, there is an empty white box where you can leave a comment, enter your info below it, and then publish your comment.  Your comment will appear at the bottom of the list of comments.  That’s it.

Any questions? Email me at
Giveaway will close Monday, April 18th, at 11:59 p.m., EST.
