I’m a little obsessed with knitters making sweaters that fit and look good on them. I was so excited when I got Amy Herzog’s new book Fit to Flatter for review. After I finished reading it I knew I wanted to do a giveaway.

So here it is, the I-Love-This-Book-I-Know-You-Will-Too, Fit to Flatter Giveaway.

Our prize package includes a copy of the book donated by Melanie Falick Books:

Knit to Flatter, the book

Knit to Flatter, the book

and a yarn pack (in the winner’s choice of color) to knit the Dorica sweater, one of my favorites, donated by Berocco Yarns:

To win this prize pack leave a comment on this post between now and midnight eastern time, Tuesday April 9, 2013. One comment will be chosen at random to answer a skill testing question. If the commenter answers correctly they will win the book and yarn pack. If you have already won a prize from us in the past year, please do give other knitters a chance.
