Giveaway: More Last-Minute Knitted Gifts

Last-Minute-giveaway

Today I have another giveaway
for you knitters and friends-of-knitters. It's a book that you've no doubt seen popping up in your yarn stores and on bloggers' faves lists. Also, it's a perfect book to add to your collection right now, when you're filling a big (ahem) pressed for time. (Please don't tell me I'm the only one!)

More Last-Minute Knitted Gifts is one of those books that makes you want to dog-ear every single project. Except you would never actually do that to your fancy new book. The author, Joelle Hoverson, is the founder of Purl Soho in Manhattan and if you've ever stopped by their blog, The Purl Bee, you know that Joelle and her team are a whirlwind of creativity.

The projects in the book are divided up into five sections: less than 2-hour gifts, 2-4 hour gifts, 4-6 hour gifts, 6-8 hour gifts and more-than-8 hour gifts. I think this is especially perfect for new knitters who may not yet be able to gauge how long a project might take. There is also portions of the book devoted to wrapping and personalizing your gifts. Something we all know is so important for our cherished handmades.

My mom broke out her recipe for Nanaimo bars a couple years ago (that she'd just been sitting on! for like, 20 years!), and I think I gained 10 pounds from eating nothing but those while we visited. I'm going to need to get it from her this year.

Snickerdoodles! Best eaten warm out of the oven with a mug of chocolate milk (or coffee, if it's in the AM. Which...yes, cookies are indeed an acceptable breakfast, thankyouverymuch).

This book looks great -- would love to win! My favorite holiday cookie is my family recipe for cinnamon disks. A basic sugar cookie with cinnamon and walnuts. Perfect with eggnog!

Leah and family said...

This looks like a great book! I love frosting covered sugar cookies best during the holidays.

My favorite holiday cookie are rachel's Big Soft Ginger Cookies

paws said...

Want it! I don't think I have a favorite cookie, not having much of a sweet tooth. Does that exclude me? Hope not!

Marilyn said...

Chocolate crinkles...YUM!

I love sugar cookies! Thanks for the giveaway!

Hannah said...

In my excitement to enter the giveaway, I forgot to say my favorite cookie.

For one who claims to be a foodie, I have a rather boring favorite: Oatmeal Chocolate Chip.

Ely said...

Great giveaway! I'm not entirely sure Christmas would be the same without Berliner Kranser (Berliner Wreaths).

Gingerbread is the best! But soft ... not the hard crunchy ones.

Silverwinds Photography said...

My favorite holiday cookie is so simple...sugar cookies...there is just something magical about them...from childhood to now with my own children as there faces light up as we create sweet tasty goodness.

nina said...

That little gnome hat is adorable. Loved it on Zay. My favorite cookie would have to be the peppernut cookies that An would make at Christmas. Love them but very very very time consuming.

Korbi said...

Sugar cookies. Hands down no contest!

Greeneyes said...

Ohh, that wrapping photo has my attention!

Mutti said...

My favorite Christmas cookie is Shortbread. A dear Scottish Grandmother I knew gave me the recipe years and years ago.

Karey said...

Yummy, my current favorite cookie is Santa's Surprises, which are peanut butter cookies with a reese peanut butter cup in the middle. Thanks for the opportunity

michelle said...

Ooh, this one looks fabulous! Too bad I didn't see it earlier.

I just love cookies. Love them. Tonight I tried a new recipe: chocolate chip with peanut butter and pretzels. It's a keeper.
