Thank you for all of your entries in our Custom Crochet Contest!
I randomly chose our three winners:
Ginny’s comment: “That looks like a great book! I’ve been crocheting for years but I’ve never made a sweater.”
Sarah’s comment: “I’ve tried making a crochet sweater, once. It didn’t go so well. Maybe this is the book I need to encourage me to foray into the depths of sweater making again.:
Lisa’s comment: “Beautiful sweaters! I’ve never made a crocheted garment, but these sweaters are original and creative enough for me to give it a try.”
Congratulations! I hope we’ll be seeing some beautiful crochet sweaters from this book!
update 4/12 – Contest is over! Thank you for your entries – we’ll announce the winners later today!
As you can tell from my last few blog posts, I’ve caught the crochet bug. I haven’t yet attempted a crochet sweater but I’ve been sorely tempted by a new book - Custom Crochet Sweaters by Dora Ohrenstein
Wow, thanks for all of your great entries in the Knits For Nerds Contest - I had a lot of fun reading all of your nerdy loves! Alas, I only have 2 copies of the book so I loaded up the Random Number Generator & came up with our winners
Winner #1 – Meli Santiago!
Nerdy-ness is a trait passed down in my family. My dad was a Trekkie and a Star Wars fan. Passed that down to me, who adopted Firefly, Doctor who, and Torchwood on top of that. Now I’ve got my phone that is completely Doctor Who-ified. It plays the Theme song when someone is calling, the TARDIS sound when I get a text message, and the background screen is of the tenth and eleventh doctor. (10 is my favorite) Squee!
Winner #2 – Jenifer!
Um. My last name is Spock. Pretty sure I win on that alone I am a Firefly and Doctor Who freak. Husband, kids are all Star Wars nuts, I love the original and Next Gen Star Trek series, and I can quite pretty much quote any Harry Potter book, and am a firm believer that Cedric Diggory would have beaten the minions of Team Edward into the ground.
In addition, I also make and donate Jayne hats to the PDX Browncoats for their annual Can’t Stop the Serenity screening to benefit various charities. Also, did I mention that the “Status is NOT quo?” and Dr. Horrible is one of the best creations of Joss Whedon… I could go on with my love of DC Comics, but I’ll stop..,
Thanks again everyone – this was a really fun contest! Stay tuned for more contests here on the blog!
Contest is over! We’ll draw a winner on 3/12!
I have been so happy the past few weeks – one of my favorite designers, Toni Carr, released her new book – Knits for Nerds!
I’ve known about this book for awhile & have been so very excited. See, I’m a nerd so this hits me right at the sweet spot.
Thanks everyone – contest is over! We’ll draw a winner on 2/13!
Here at Knit Picks, we’re on a mission to change the perception of the Winter Blues. The color blue makes all of us so happy – gazing up the blue sky, watching the ocean waves, seeing a blue jay flying by – so why should “blue” mean sad?
Thanks to everyone who entered our crochet contest! We had nearly 600 entries! Unfortunately I only have 3 copies of The Best of Interweave Crochet so I randomly choose 3 winners (with the help of random.org).
Cori of Ft Worth TX
Emily of Coon Rapids MN
Anne of Albuquerque, NM
I’ve contacted them all & will be sending out their books on Monday
And stay tuned – we have more blog contests up our sleeves!
Contest is over! We’ll contact the winners & and announce them on Monday 2/6
I’ve been addicted to crochet lately! And it’s all because of Brittany Tyler‘s excellent Bullseye pattern.
Thank you so much for all your responses to the Knits that Fit contest!
It was fun reading your comments! I’m sorry we didn’t have more books to send out to you! We have randomly chosen two people to receive a copy. Congratulations to:

I love a contest and I’m pretty sure you do too. Well we have another one for you. Are you tired of putting so much work into a project that just doesn’t fit right? Knits That Fit
is a wonderful guide to making garments that are tailored to suite your
body style and size. I found two extra copies that are looking for a
new home. So the solution is to have a blog giveaway!
