    Oh goodie! Looks like a fun prize! Hopefully you won’t ask the skill testing question on new year’s… (Although I probably won’t have a hangover)

  2. Kara

    This looks like an amazing book. I’ve enjoyed all the reviews I’ve seen of it on podcasts…I can’t wait to have my own copy.

  3. Bobette

    I am a very new spinner, and have been stocking the fiber books on Amazon. This one is at the top of my wish list…..The fiber looks amazing. Would love to give it a try.

  4. Ginny

    I would love to win you! I have all sorts of plans on getting back to spinning after this holiday crunch. This would be a good guide.

  5. Susan P.

    I’m a new spinner so the more I can learn, the better! While I like random and surprising, being able to make fiber do what I want would be wonderful.

  6. Christie Frank

    This looks like just the book for my small spinning library! I’ve only been spinning for a few months, but I’m completely hooked. I’d love to have this book (and the fiber – don’t forget the fiber!) to feed my new obsession.

  7. Pam F

    I could use an excuse to bring the wheel back into the living room after the holidays,,,both the book & the fiber could be that inspiration!

  8. Lynn B

    What a wonderful way to encourage the fulfillment of a new years resolution to spin, spin, spin… in a good way of course!

  9. Nicole H.

    This books is on my wishlist! It would be amazing to get a chance to win it and the fiber! I hope I get the chance and can answer the question!

  10. Josiane

    I want to spin more, try new things (new types of fibre, new techniques, etc.), and generally improve as a spinner during the coming year. Your book and the fibre would greatly help me achieve those goals! Thank you for offering such an awesome prize!

  11. Tobie

    I had the book from the library–wonderful book! Had to return it but looking forward to working from it and I love the colors of that fibe!

  12. Ashley

    Beautiful book and fiber! I would love to win and step up my spinning game in the new year! No time for spinning the last month with gift knitting, so a new book would be AMAZING!

  13. Maura

    I still consider myself a novice spinner and would love to learn how to spin the yarn I want to knit with– sock weight or fingering ..instead of what the wheel does by itself. I have lots of bulky…albeit good for Paul Bunyon’s socks and hard. The book looks great and just what I could learn lots from.

  14. Samina

    I bought a copy of this book for a spinning friend earlier this year, but I’d love to win a copy for myself!

  15. Dolly

    This book looks really good. Didn’t get it for Xmas. I’ve used this fiber & it spins like a dream!

    I will buy both no matter what.

  16. martha

    I love spinning and have 5 spinning wheels to keep me busy. This book would help me in making usable yarn for my planned projects.

  17. Geraldine Bowman

    I would love to learn how to spin. This would definitely be the push I need to give it a go.

    I borrowed this book from the library & it is WONDERFUL! Hope to have my own copy!

  33. Betsy

    Haven’t tried spinning yet. But I made some felted dryer balls this year and really loved playing with the fleece. New skill this year maybe?

  34. Ann Morton

    Wow, a chance to build a new skill! I would love a chance to win your book, thank you for your generosity.

  35. Sunny

    Somehow I didn’t get your book. Maybe I will now. ANd I have been trying to get back to spinning. It has been decades.

  36. Doris

    I wanted your book, but I didn’t get much of anything off my list this year… strange year. I’d love to win this.

  37. Nadine Foster

    I would love to have a copy of the book. The fiber on the other hand, I love. Great name Vegetable Medley.

  39. Edie

    Thanks for the chance. I really want to learn how to spin. I just found a store in my area that teaches an intro to spinning class.

  40. Enid

    I just got a wheel this year, and definitely need some guidance. I am also using my drop spindles as well. I know this is a great book and a great resource for a new spinner. Plus I love ITW! Thanks for doing the generous giveaway.

  41. Marni S

    I’m inspired to make 15 minutes a day of spinning my new resolution- my wheel arrives on St Distaff’s day 1/7/17- so will be spindle spinning until then- would love this book! (Family take note! This is a great gift!)

    1. Kathy Rogers

      (Was supposed to be “fiber looks yummy”- I don’t know what a fiber last is… stupid autocorrect.)

  42. Meryl

    I have a confession to make. I already have a copy of your amazing book! It was a Christmas gift – from me – to me πŸ™‚ But I was actually thinking this morning that I might buy another copy for the library at my spinner’s guild and I’d love to win this for them (and the fibre could be MINE!) Thanks for the great info and also for this giveaway.

  43. Carissa Davis

    It’s been quite a while since I’ve spun anything and this would be a fantastic way to get back into it!

  44. Norma

    I am hoping to take out my louet wheel I brought a few years and start spinning in the New Year.
    This book would come in very handy

  45. Lucille Charlton

    I love the colours used for the cover! I would be delighted to donate this book to my guild library. Our spinners group is getting larger.

  46. maget

    Did I mention that one of my goals for 2017 is to spin more? What better way to get motivated than by winning an awesome book! Thanks Knitty!

  47. Quinn

    I’ve had my eye on your book since the first hint of it hit the web, so winning this great giveaway would be a very special treat! Fingers crossed, and thanks for the opp πŸ™‚

  48. Jessica Peled

    I have been waiting to get your book on loan from my library, but it’s on order. I would love to win!

  49. Joanne

    Color is always a challenge for me in spinning. Your book would be a lovely addition to my spinning references.

  50. Mara

    I was waiting for my holiday money to buy this book. Maybe I will be lucky and have more to spend on fiber to spin instead!

  51. Chris in Durango

    I’ve been admiring my friend’s copy of your book and would love to have my own copy. Thanks for the opportunity!
