‘Leave Me Alone!’ Giveaway!

**Comments are closed!! Thanks everyone for your wonderful comments! I’ll be naming the winner shortly!**

I have been looking forward to the release of this book since I first heard about it! Being a Knitter in a Knitter’s world, I have been acquainted with Vera Brosgal (find her on IG here!) and her work and knitting for years (remember when Flickr was the place to be?? Yeah. ). Her book, about a Granny Knitter just wanting to be left alone to her knitting, was released this past Tuesday, and it is gorgeous! The Illustrations! The Color Palette! The Story! There is nothing not to love.
I thought I’d share my excitement with all of you, and GIVE AWAY a copy! The winner will also receive a Knitterly Things ‘I Heart Yarn’ bag, AND a special edition Mitten Yarn Kit, with one copy each of our Chevron Love Mittens, and Super Simple Stripey Mittens patterns.

To enter, leave a comment on this post telling me your favorite place/most ideal setting to work on your knitting. One comment per person, please. Winner will be drawn by random number generator sometime this Sunday. Thanks for playing, and good luck!

    At the hockey rink watching my boys play!

  2. Erica says:

    I love to sit by my pool and knit! Thanks for the chance to win – I have always wanted to knit those mittens but use all your sock yarn for socks! 😉

  3. Jan says:

    My LYS was destroyed in a fire last December. Now my favorite place to knit is in whoever’s home happens to be available in a given week. Sometimes it’s not about the place or comfort (we brought our own chairs last week), it’s about who you are with!
    Someday, we’ll find a new ‘clubhouse’ we hope. Till then, Thankyou Facebook for making things easier!

    Favourite “place” to knit these days are the stolen moments of quiet in the day: while the kettle heats up for the morning cuppa, on the bus after a long day of work, in between practice questions and flashcards (a line or two is a WAY better reward than chocolate or potato chips when studying!), the brief reprieve when the baby falls asleep before the evening clean-up and prep for tomorrow happens, and finally, when the day is done before my brain konks out for the night.

  5. Grace Fredeick says:

    On a deck overlooking the beach. So nice! Alas, I live in Texas, so it doesn’t happen often!

  6. JB says:

    My favorite place to knit is on our dock at our lake house on Lake Wabaunsee with my trusty Chesapeake Bay Retriever, Kodi, by my side.

  7. Yvette Paxton says:

    I can’t say I have one favorite place to knit. I knit at home in my living room in my big squishy chair, to work and everywhere I go. You just never know where you’ll be waiting to knit a few rows. I’ve even knitted on a totally stopped freeway when there was an accident and I sat there for thirty minutes before the traffic was able to move.

  8. Patty L. says:

    Camping on the weekends and sitting under a tree is my most favorite place.

    I do most of my knitting in the evening while watching TV. But my favorite place is outside on the back porch.

  11. Patty says:

    I like to knit on the couch with a cat on either side of me while watching something totally shallow.

  12. Sharon M says:

    Maybe this sounds a little odd, but my favorite place to knit is at the dining room table. The chairs are comfortable-I have a cushion; i can spread everything out in front of me, have my iPad for music and other distractions and a view of the woods at the back of the house.

  13. Rachel says:

    My favorite place to knit is out on the deck in cool (end of spring, beginning of fall) weather, so the bugs aren’t bad and whatever my project is can work as a bit of a blanket.

  14. Sophie says:

    My favorite place to knit is on the couch watching tv with my husband.

  15. Pat Sanders says:

    I love to knit outside on the deck in the evening hours. Frequently deer are out in the yard hopefully not in my garden.

  16. Carrie Mcbride says:

    I’m really fond of my couch in front of the fireplace but also love knitting outside on the deck when it’s not too windy or too hot. Love this giveaway!

  17. Amy Ricke says:

    On our new bed, with my husband and fur babies on it, too, watching a favorite show on TV, while it storms or snows outside!

  18. Mare says:

    My favorite place to knit is at my parents’ lake cottage.

  19. Linda says:

    My favorite place to knit in the fall is in my swing on the deck with a cup of tea or coffee. Enjoy watching the birds and squirrels. They enjoy stealing dog food from the pups bowls. Love the feel of the change in the air as fall approaches.

  20. catsuda says:

    I can happily knit anywhere, but my favorite spot is settled in with my dog on the sofa. She’s good company–completely uncritical!

  24. Rebecca says:

    My favorite place to knit is in my living room. Especially on the weekends when the sun is out. A close second is the beer garden in the park across the street from my house during summer when it is open.

  25. margie kovacic says:

    I like to knit in my recliner while watching TV and have a cup of tea or hot chocolate. That is where most of my knitting is done. During the summertime I’ll sit on the deck in the backyard off the lake. Theses are my favorite spots.

  26. Mel says:

    Anywhere I can sneak it in ~ but the hanging hammock chair out on the patio might be my favorite!

  27. Deborah Graham says:

    My fav knitting spot depends on the seasons. Right now, being 100 outside, I choose to knit in my living room. When it is cooler, I sit on my back patio watching my chickens forage and play. Thank you for the chance to win and GOO LUCK everyone!

  28. adrienne says:

    i love sitting in the backyard under the umbrella shade to knit…especially in the summer.

    Curled up on the sofa with the dog. The only problem in she takes over my lab sometimes.
