  • Yarn and I are best of buds! I currently have a shrug on knitting needles, a wool wallet on another pair, and an iPad cover on a crochet hook. I’d love to win this book so I can make a camping scene to keep on my desk at work! Thanks for the chance!

    —Annette J. on September 1, 2016
  • I like to crochet it was my first craft I taught myself as a teen and I crocheted a lot! (lots of yarnables) then in early adult-hood scrapbooking took over, now it’s quilting, but I still go back to crocheting once in a while, especially for my kids

    Bea on September 1, 2016
  • I haven’t crocheted in years. I used to love it and have am ready to take it up again. This book has inspired me!

    —Carol Yemola on September 1, 2016
  • We are the best of buds: knitting from the age of 4 and crocheting from the age of 9. And above using yarn for other crafts as well.

    —Marthese on September 1, 2016
  • No haven;t met yet. Love the designs it’s so amazing and would be wonderful gift for my niece and nephew…Love it and would like to try.

    —Anne on September 1, 2016
  • I’m not much of a knitter but I love to crochet.

    —NancyB on September 1, 2016
  • Yarn and I. We have a complicated history. I much prefer quilting. BUT I have a wonderful sister-in-law who can crochet and she has four little ones who would love this! Pick me, please, so I can give it to her! 😁

    —Nyla-Jean on September 1, 2016
  • Oh so cute! Yarn and I have a slightly adversarial relationship: I buy lots of it with good intentions and then it gets mad at me for not using it and becomes very stubborn when I try. I have completed one project in my life – actually from another Martingale book – a whale. It was wonderfully fulfilling. I need to make something from the camping set. It’s just too cute!!

    —Michelle Wescott on September 1, 2016
  • Many many years ago my grandmother taught me to crochet. From a young age I remember loving to watch her crochet everything from doilies to curtains and bedspreads. My favorites were all the dresses for my barbies with matching handbags and hats. Now I can crochet those same patterns for my little girl’s dolls.

    —Annerie Vorster on September 1, 2016
  • Honestly. we have maybe met, but ive been trying ti figure it out for a bit. lol this relationship needs counseling 🙂

    Ha ha, thanks for the giggle, Harmony! 🙂 –Jenny

    —Harmony Rowley on September 1, 2016
  • I would love to make this for my granddaughter! It looks like so much fun to play with.

    —Debra Allen on September 1, 2016
  • I have been waiting for this book!! My mom taught me to crochet granny squares at age 12. I kind of lost interest until age 14 when I found a knitted cable sweater pattern I wanted to make. So, I taught myself to knit and do cables. Since, then I have knitted and crocheted off and on. My fave projects are amigurumi and motifs. I would have so much fun with this book!

    —Selene York on September 1, 2016
  • I crochet baby blankets, bears and have tried spinning my own yarn. Made boots from it.

    Carla on September 1, 2016
  • This is the most adorable crochet I have ever seen. Adults and kids alike will spend hours playing with these. Love It!

    —Liz on September 1, 2016
  • These are adorable !!!! My husband & I have an RV Repair shop in Colorado & I get everything I can find on campers of all kinds. More & more fabrics are available with the retro campers on them so this is a MUST for my collection.

    —Marianne Portteus on September 1, 2016

    —Lynne on September 1, 2016
  • My youngest daughter and her family have just experienced their first camping holiday, the children are so excited about it. I think if i won this book i could make it all for them, so they could experience it all again through play.

    —helen Smith on September 1, 2016
  • Yarn and I are very close friends for years and owing to a spinal cord accident I now travel by RV that is accessible. This book is the cutest thing I’ve seen in a long time and I do intend to make the most of this new life style that I am stuck with, but gives a lot of time to knit and crochet. This book is perfect.

    —Vicki Krausz on September 1, 2016
  • I just took my first lesson with yarn last week and feel like we will become really good friends

    —Claire on September 1, 2016

    —Linda B on September 1, 2016
  • "I am getting to know each other" stage in my crocheting. Hopefully you will pick me & I could be "Best of Buds". Thank You

    —Genevieve Caswell on September 1, 2016
  • I learned to crochet as a young teen but haven’t picked up a hook in almost 40 years. About a year ago I learned about amigurumi and that re-ignited my passion, and I’ve been hooking ever since! I love the little caravans in the book, I’ve always wanted one, I think they’re darling.

    —Susan B on September 1, 2016
  • Yarn and I go way back. My first project was a lopsided baby blanket for my newborn son, which I still have! And he’s 36 now 🙂 I love these little camping projects! I want to make them all. So cute!

    —Nancy D on September 1, 2016

    —Lynnette Lamance on September 1, 2016
  • I’ve been crocheting since my Grandmother taught me many years ago. It keeps my hands busy, and out of the cookie jar! I’ve made many things for many family and friends. My kids are both college age, but this will be so much fun, and I can find someone’s kids to make them for. I can’t wait to get this book!!

    —Nancy Stolk on September 1, 2016
  • I learned to crochet at least 50 years ago, but it has been awhile since I have done any. This would be great to make Christmas presents for all of the littles on my list.

    —Teresa Knittingdancer on September 2, 2016
  • I love crocheting. We go camping a lot and would love to have this for our camper.

    —Mary Burn on September 2, 2016
  • I learned to crochet from my grandmother, then taught myself how to read a pattern. Grandma could look at a fancy doily and copy it but didn’t know how to read a pattern. We still have many of her afghans and I’m in my 60’s.

    —Lynn Bohlmann on September 2, 2016
  • I make tactile resources for kids in the state and special schools in my region, who have visual and physical impairments.

    I frequently use yarns to make things and most often without a pattern, which can be hit n miss!
    Ive made a digestive system most recently, mostly knitted but using different textures of yarn for example ..
    I make full use of yarns and this would be a really useful book to have in my arsenal : )
    These fantastic patterns would certainly promote speech and curiosity!

    —lyn lewis on September 2, 2016
  • This would be awesome for a little girl.

    —Janice on September 2, 2016
  • Not just best buds, but therapy. Love my yarn. And I’d love this book. My grandson would be thrilled.

    —Karen Cohn on September 2, 2016
  • Yarn and I are best buds. I’ve been crocheting for about 30 years!

    —Bridget on September 2, 2016
  • Best of Buds! I love yarn and have a lot of it. I crochet and knit and it also is great for many other things like doll hair and ornaments. Let’s Go Camping looks like a lot of fun both for me to make and for the grandchildren to play with. Maybe it would inspire one of them to learn how to crochet.

    —Mary on September 2, 2016
  • We’re sort of best buds. I still bump into stitches or techniques that make me want to pull my hair out but I love the final results and so I keep on plugging!

    —Carol on September 3, 2016
  • I have been crocheting for over 50 years and I have cricheted hundreds of chemo caps and I love to camp, though now it is not in a tent with sleeping bags . I sleep in a trailer With heat and a fridge and other luxuries.

    —Patty Bertrand on September 3, 2016
  • Yarn and I are old buddies. I learned to crochet a little in 4H but as an adult taught myself knitting and crocheting. I am also teaching my kids. My tween loves crocheting and my teen knitting.

    —Noreen on September 3, 2016
  • Yarn and I have been best buddies since high school days, when I taught myself to knit from a leaflet ordered from Family Circle magazine. That was many moons ago! I haven’t crocheted for awhile, but still have decorations made when my children were small. I could use a refresher course to get back into the groove.

    —Linda Towers on September 4, 2016
  • Best of buds love all the different and there’s not much that can’t be crocheted
