    I recently had the pleasure of meeting Amy Herzog. She was patient and gracious under rather difficult circumstances, and a delight to talk with. I would love to win a copy of her book.

    This sweater book would be a huge help! I’ve been very slow to knit something that would take so much yarn and effort, fearing the results would be unsatisfying. Thanks for offering it!

    That book looks fantastic. Learning how to knit to my body has easily been one more the more challenging part of my knitting career.

    I am always leary of knitting my self sweaters because I am afraid of all the time and energy and having it not fit.. This seems like the perfect book for me.

    I’d love to have my sweaters fit well consistently. Mine tend to be a bit hit and miss…

    Kleptomania usually begins in the teens or 20s. By the time patients present themselves to psychiatrists, women are usually in their mid- to late 30s, while men are in their 50s. There have been reports of kleptomaniacs in their late 70s. We don’t know if kleptomania has a genetic component, but some studies suggest that kleptomaniacs have parents or close relatives with substance abuse problems, obsessive-compulsive disorder and/or mood disorders. oakley polarized hijinx sunglasses blue http://www.sunglasses-soaho.org/oakley-polarized-hijinx-sunglasses-blue-p-561.html

    I absolutely love the patterns in this book…I usually only like two or three patterns in a book, if I’m lucky. There are at least four that I love here. Dorica, Dancez, Cypress, Coin Cable. I wonder if they are right for my body type?! Hope I win the book and then I will know !

  16. Gail Korhonen

    I would love to receive this book. I have been looking at it as I would like to knit sweaters that are flattering to my body. Also the sweater is one of my favorites in the book.

  17. Jessica

    I love Amy’s patterns and the way she helps you think about what is the most flattering shape for your body.

  18. L.

    What a great-looking book! I’d love to get away from knitting mostly lounging sweaters and make something I feel is stylish.

  19. Anna

    I would love to learn how to make tops that fit! And a sweater’s-worth of yarn? Count me in on this one.

  20. Christine Newpower

    I’m afraid I’m just a knitting newbie, but I do crochet and sew apparel all the time. Would love to learn to knit something that doesn’t come out looking like a moth-eaten afghan! This looks like the book to point me in the right direction! Thanks for the giveaway!

  21. Juliane

    I love Amy’s concept – I’m taking her Craftsy class, and would like to have the book as well. If I don’t win, I’ll buy her book as soon as I can afford it.
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  22. Lucy

    I signed up for Amy Herzog’s Craftsy class when she announced it on her blog. After knitting one too many unflattering pullover’s, I’m excited at the prospect of finally knitting something with proper fit.

  23. Jennifer
