Sweater Give-away!

Okay, time for a contest. Take a look at this sweater.



I knitted it for the book and after the photo shoot, everyone involved asked me to make a few changes to the design. So, I softened the saddle shoulder a little, making it more of a raglan/saddle combo, which is pictured now on the front of the book. And we switched from the Mission Falls cotton to Berrocco Pure Merino.

I love them both. And I want to share the cotton one with the world. In fact, I'm going to do a random drawing to choose one lucky winner. All you have to do to enter is post a review of KNITS MEN WANT on amazon.com, b&n.com, or any other online book seller site or knitting site between now and June 15th. Just drop me a note so I know who you are. And if you've already posted one, you've got a chance at the sweater, just let me know who you are. I'll pick the name out of a hat on the 15th.

The black and beige sweater is a size medium and it's really comfortable.

Thanks for spreading the word, and good luck!

    Hello Bruce, I just posted a review of your superb book on www.amazon.de ... (in both German and English). I've been knitting the reversible scarf, and there is hardly a project in the book I would NOT want to do ... actually my husband (a non-knitter) has done more than leafing through the book as well - and got hooked to some extent on some designs. Don't know if it is possible to enter your contest from outside the US, if not - too bad ;-) Thank you for this really necessary (!) knitting book - I shall certainly recommend it. Best regards from Germany, Astrid ...
