‘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!

    I enjoy knitting most on my back porch on fall days. But honestly I end up doing most of my knitting on the train… gotta get my stich on when I can!

  2. Viki says:

    Easy! My sunroom is my favourite place to knit. And hopefully my new office/studio currently under construction will be my second favourite.

  3. Laura Lally says:

    Mt favorite place to knit is on my deck in my comfy chair looking out over the lake we live on. It’s so peaceful and calming to hear the wind rustling through the trees and see the sun glittering on the water while I knit away πŸ˜ŠπŸƒπŸ’• .

  4. Lee says:

    I have a little spot in my house, on the love seat, in the living room, where I sit in the evening and knit and watch podcasts. This time comes after working all day, completing the dinner routine for my family, and taking a walk with my husband. I treasure it for sure! Thanks for an awesome giveaway and for introducing us to this book!!

  5. Dana says:

    My favorite place to knit is at Starbucks with my local knitting friends. There have been lots of people come and go, but the core 3 of us have been close for a while and we have an absolute blast! As a WAHM I don’t get a lot of adult social time, so I cherish our Thursday nights. Thanks for a chance to win!

  6. Carolyn Dia says:

    I love to knit while on my exercise bike. (Even though knitting is exercise. Right?)

  7. Kara says:

    Since I’m working full time and working on master’s degree AND managing my family, my favorite place to knit is any place I get the chance. πŸ™‚ But I really like being able to knit at my LYS on Friday nights with my knitting group.

  8. Andy says:

    My favorite place to knit is on our patio under the umbrella on Sunday mornings. And my second favorite place to knit is probably in the car. I save the complicated projects for the non-car times. In the car I like to make socks. I just finished the first of my Disco Superfly pair! Yay!

  9. Shannon Yawn says:

    I’m sure I could say beachside in the Bahamas or at a remote cabin nestled in the woods, but best place to knit honestly would be alone, in my own home, curled up with a mug of warm tea and a good audiobook. No one around to bug me and make me lose count!

  10. Suzette Wilkes says:

    I love knitting by a campfire!

  11. Teri Kepner says:

    I am fortunate enough to have my own knitting room, so that is my very favorite place to knit! I have my own television, lounge chair and assortment of hundreds of skeins to choose from. I am so ver lucky and I wish everyone could have what I have. Then we could all just shut the door and say “Leave me alone!”

  12. Diane says:

    I enjoy sitting on the patio or in my chair in front of the tv to do my knitting.

  13. Lesley Johnson says:

    At the lake in a rocking chair in fall or early spring. No mosquitos or 100 degree temps.

  14. This book is quite intriguing! And what a wonderful giveaway! My ideal setting to work on my knitting is somewhere oceanside (like Tofino, here on Vancouver Island!!), in front of a fireplace, with a nice glass of either wine or an ice cold pint of local brew. It would be pretty awesome to have some knitterly friends around to chat with too!! πŸ™‚

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  15. Annika says:

    I have a favorite knitting chair, and I like to knit with my feet up on the ottoman and a good movie playing.

  16. Danelle Sorensen says:

    My favorite spot is a cozy corner of the back garden. Trees for shade, shrubberies for privacy, a cool lawn, with birds, squirrels, and an occasional fox wandering by…and I like to play hard-to-get by turning my phone off!

  17. RachelB says:

    My ideal setting would be a comfy chair with a cup of something warm on the side. My current places to knit is while waiting for kids (library, pickup line at school, or rarely in front of my computer watching a video)

    Sitting in my comfy couch, watching something good on tv!! Best place to knit for me!! And of course in some comfy yoga pants! 😜

    My favorite place to knit is in the passenger seat of the car. There is nothing else I can do, so I don’t feel guilty for spending a lot of time knitting!

  21. Heidi says:

    I usually knit while sitting on my bed. I’m able to prop up and spread things out while also being comfy.

  22. LeTishe Gallion says:


    If I could take back time, my favorite place to knit would be on my grandmother’s lap! I miss her so much!!! Every summer I would spend a month with her and she taught me to knit slippers, you purl a square and knit the toe and draw it up to a slipper and they had a pom pom on the top! I loved her so much! I feel like now when I knit she is always by my side.


    I really enjoyed your Knit Stars video and I’m so excited about it, can’t wait!

  23. Nancy Groth says:

  28. Abbie Norderhaug says:

    My favorite place to knit is on my deck with a cup of coffee!

  29. Becky Lax says:

    I usually knit in my recliner, sitting cross legged and often times rocking. That would be rocking as in my recliner rocks and as in ear buds on and metal music blasting. That’s my happy place. My dream happy place would be touring Ireland and Scotland, knitting at any and every place I could. Preferably with some Jameson’s nearby.

  30. Stacie says:

    My ideal knitting place would be a charming little cozy treehouse!

  31. Brynne says:

    Enjoying nature while I knit.

  32. Bertha says:

    My favorite place to work on my knitting is on the couch, in front of the TV. I’m a product knitter, rather than a process knitter and I like to be comfy & have a distraction going on at the same time to make the work go by faster, ha!

  33. Jess says:

    We have one corner of the couch that everyone competes for, we call it the sweet spot because it has coos lighting, back support, a good view of the tv and a spot to put your coffee. My second favorite place to knit is in front of a campfire!

  34. Pumpkinmama says:

    Tucked in the corner of sectional sofa with good binge-worthy knitting friendly tv to watch (eg trashy πŸ˜‰

  35. Meredith says:

    I do most of my knitting in my living room sitting on the couch watching TV after dinner. My husband is usually by my side and we’re winding down from our busy day.

  36. Shannan says:

    My favorite place to knit is sitting on the beach. But that only happens a few times a year. Usually, it’s me, my recliner and netflix.

  37. Sharon says:

    I love to knit on my back porch where I have wind chimes and can watch the birds at our fèder. There is always a lovely breeze from the trees and I seem to accomplish more there.

  38. Michelle says:

    My favorite place to knit is anywhere with friends! If I can’t find a friend, then I love it when my dogs are at my side.

  39. Deanna says:

    I have so many favorite places…right now it would be on the deck with a cup of pumpkin chai tea.

    My favorite place to knit is on my front porch, in a glider chair with the birds chirping around me & watching the leaves in my front yard slowly turn to autumn colors. Thank you for the opportunity to get into this give a way!

  41. michelle says:

    my fave place to knit is in my big brown chair in my sewing room watching tv.

  42. Kathleen McCoy says:

    The place I get my best knitting done is at the race track on race weekends. I can knock out half a sock or a sleeve. It was great! Otherwise, i enjoy knitting anywhere. It’s hard to knit at home having two cats around.

  43. Lucie says:

    I love knitting on my deck during fall but most of all, I love knitting during winter evenings, snuggled with my two cats. They are in my way a lot of the time but I don’t mind since I am surrounded by two things I love, my cats and knitting. Thank you for this generous giveaway.

  44. Kris says:

    My patio on a crisp autumn morning, coffee at my side – my little piece of heaven!

  45. sprite says:

    I like knitting at cafes, headphones in, listening to music or an audiobook, with a cuppa and something sweet.

  46. Catrina says:

    I have a worn away a spot on my couch in front of the TV where I do most of my knitting and spinning! The next best place is in the passenger seat on long trips 😜

    Thanks for hosting the giveaway!

  47. Robin Diebold says:

    Anywhere is my first thought but I enjoy knitting with my friends. Talking laughing and knitting is the best

  48. Erica says:

    I love to knit on the couch, with daughter crocheting next to me and dog(s) at my side, something British on the telly.

  49. earthchick says:

    Wow, that color palette is GORGEOUS. My favorite place to work on my knitting is on my sofa before sunrise, with a cup of coffee next to me and my dog asleep with his head on my lap.

  50. Gina in the SF Bay Area says:

    I like knitting outdoors along the Humboldt County coast in the far reaches of Northern California. The redwood trees and ferns meet the craggy coastline, and even in the summer, it is cool enough to knit with wool. The foggy fresh air and the rhythmic sounds of the surf are as soothing as knitting in the great unspoiled wilderness.
