Thanks to all who entered the drawing! The winner is Liisa, who says:

“I wasn’t knitting when my own children were little, but now that I have grandkids, I love knitting for them. This winter I made mittens for all of them and now I am working to finish sweaters for two of them – the third has been complete for some time. Mittens are my favorite, because they are quick and every child living in the northern climate, needs several pair.”

Liisa, we’ll email you about your prize. Congratulations!

  • I am a great grandma with 14 great grandchildren. They are from 3 months and up. Expecting a new boy in February. Always looking for different patterns to keep my little ones warm. Handmade outfits made with love are so much better than any store bought.
    Sweet Pickles looks like it may be a very nice book to have.

  • I find myself making blankets more and more, as the baby doesn’t grow out of them so fast, and sometimes, will be able to keep them for a long time – maybe even becoming a cherished treasure to pass down.

  • My friend is teaching me to knit and crochet, so I don’t have a favorite yet, I have only gotten halfway through a scarf at the moment, but she has a little one and I would love to win this ebook for her.

  • I would probably try the cozy outdoor cover ups, although the cute hats may be a good a good choice.

  • My favorites are hats, but I also like the sweaters. They provide some challenge, but they go much faster for children than they do in adult sizes.

  • Right now I’m knitting premie hats and little sweaters for my great nephew who was born seven weeks early. Mom and baby are doing well but the baby needs the warmth of hats especially. If I won the book I would make him the onesie first.

  • For kids, my go to is hats! They fit a range of sizes, it’s a great chance to try out new stitch patterns and are definitely one-skein projects! Always so cute and quick to finish!

  • Oh those little ones are so adorable. All the outfits, are darling too, but think one of the hats would be first choice. Book would delight my favorite knitter in my family!

  • Children’s sweaters are cute to make but I prefer hats – they’re quicker to finish 🙂
