And now, for the big Knits Men Want "Cringe or Crush Sweepstakes!"
Think about a guy you made something for. Did he cringe and recoil when you presented him with your labor of love? Or did he totally love it? Go to http://www.melaniefalickbooks.com and leave your story. You will be entered to win one of four great prizes. To enter, just share your story in the Comments section before noon (EST) on April 30th, 2010.
After the deadline, we'll choose four entries at random. All winners will receive a signed copy of Knits Men Want. In addition, the prizes below will be awarded in the same order winners are chosen--it's luck of the draw in this sweepstakes!
