My favorite book has been Adventures in Bookbinding. In fact, it is sitting next to me right now! So many great ideas.

My mom called me at 11:30 (PM!!) two nights ago to tell me she had bought a spinning wheel! I'm fairly certain she has NO idea what to do with it, so this book would be awesome for her!

I'm a busy (homeschooling) mom to three little ones, in my spare time I try to maintain a paper craft blog. It has been a long time since I've made time to read a book, an adult book! So when my girlfriend offered me "The Help" I was determined to START AND FINISH it! I'm glad I did. I spent several nights with my cell phone's flashlight under the covers! I felt like a kid again!

Thanks for hosting a wonderful giveaway!


i love granny square me back into crocheting :)

My favorite book last year was Zen Quilting by Pat Ferguson CZT. I have done a wall hanging and drawn enough wall paper to be the back splash in my new kitchen.

I am a spinner and have just started spinning again after a long dry spell. But that is another sad story. Gin

Entrelac: The Essential Guide to Interlace Knitting by Rosemary Drysdale would be my favorite from 2011. I love doing entrelac! I also love spinning my own unique and free to be me yarns! thanks for a great give-away!

I just started and am in love.

Teach Yourself Visually Handspinning by Judith MacKenzie McCuin

My favorite book of 2011 was

The Complete Book of Crochet Stitch Designs by Linda Schapper

I actually love all her books!


The one I go to most often right now is the Fleece and Fiber Sourcebook! I have also referenced The Intentional Spinner and Spin Art, and I have made yarn using all 3 books.

New favorite book of 2011 is Elizabeth Zimmerman's "Knit One, Knit All." Old but still forward-thinking and forward-looking knitting designs, open to adaptation - and it's inspiring to think one can be creative to the grave - and beyond! (This is a VERY posthumous book)! I don't know whether you meant best reading or best crafts book - but this is simply both.


I use the Fleece and Fiber Sourcebook all the time and also enjoyed the Knit Noro accessories book...and can't wait for the new Pluckyfluff book, of course!
