    I was so excited when I saw A Knitting Wrapsody – I love the shrug on the cover! I’d like to make that and the reversible drop stitch wrap. Thanks to you and Interweave for the giveaway =)

    Also, when I was listening to this episode I made the mistake of taking a drink of water right when Littleman said where milk came from…I almost spit out water all over my computer! Happy birthday to him!

    You gave such a GREAT review of “Knitting Wrapsody” that I can’t stop thinking about it. Amazon has a few sneek peeks of the patterns, and that….
    “Figure Eight Sweater” is out of this world! I want so much to feel the experience of knitting that crazy cool techineque!

    And your sweet Little Man is so funny that he has me feeling glad that I drink almond and coconut milk….haha
    Haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaapy Birrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrthday to you Little Man :))))

    What an interesting looking book!

    Since Hubby and I will be celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary this year, I really liked the “I Do” shawl.

    Sounds like a wonderful book! I took a look on Ravelry and like almost every design! I especially love the Summit American Yak wrap and the Tree of Life Ruana. The Infinity Cardi is gorgeous!

  5. vivid13on 09 Mar 2011 at 2:25 pm

    Echo Reversible Drop-Stitch Mobius, is on my list to make.

  6. Savannagalon 09 Mar 2011 at 2:29 pm

    I really like the shrug on the cover. I’ve only see the images provided by Amazon, and honestly, I wasn’t too fond of the owns shown. But I like the idea of learning new things. My grandmother knitted many things that looked like crochet. She used to get into heated discussions with coworkers who just did not believe that she’d knit the articles. But she did. So this book fascinates me from that perspective. Thanks much for the raffle.

    The Tree of Life Embroidered Ruana attracts me most though the Infinity Wrap/Cardigan is also tugging at me

  8. Laura Y.on 09 Mar 2011 at 3:18 pm

    Love the cover shrug and the Flamenco skirt! Kristin always has such lovely designs, and this book is no exception.

  9. Julie Witton 09 Mar 2011 at 3:38 pm

    I want this book SO bad! I am a firm believer that you can never have too many wraps! I absolutely love doing mobius wraps, cowls, anything really, so my vote for the first project I am going to have to make from this book is the Echo Reversible Drop-Stitch Mobius. Being reversible it is like having two wraps in one! And another thing I love doing is the drop stitch, because there are so many different ways you can incorporate them into a pattern to make it unique. Yes, this pattern has a little bit of everything that I love, so it is now my favorite.

  10. Alicia Howardon 09 Mar 2011 at 5:27 pm

    I’m so glad that Little Man liked the Diary books. (Yep, we love Click Clack Moo, too!!) Jackson’s favorite line was “while grandpa ate the paper” – he says that all the time just out of the blue!

    I love the Wrapsody book. I like the mobius and the pattern that looks like a stole but has arm holes in it! Thanks for the review…you made me want it even more!

    I love the items that I was able to see in this book. I do not own one book about knitting. I have lots of magazines/patterns. I would love to own this book. Love listening to your podcast…..

  12. Lisa Kenton 11 Mar 2011 at 12:08 am

    The Flamenco Ruffled Skirt! Wowie zowie! All the designs are unique and interesting. Thanks for a terrific podcast Meghan!

  13. monicaon 11 Mar 2011 at 6:27 pm

    I love the ” I do” diamond lace shawl!

  14. Rachel Rodenon 12 Mar 2011 at 2:55 pm

    I really liked the Infinity Cardi-Wrap, however I am guessing that the patterns I am more likely to knit are the Echo Reversible Drop-Stitch Mobius and the Tama Bead-Trimmed Seashell Shawlette which I also really liked! Great review!

  15. Karenon 13 Mar 2011 at 2:14 pm

    I like the echo mobius wrap. I’m a big fan of mobius shawls, because for me they stay in place. I like the combination of huge cables and dropped stitches.

  16. Kim Degeneron 14 Mar 2011 at 12:54 pm

    Loved the Wrapsody review. Hapy birthday to Little Man. Also a huge library fan here. Looking forward to seeing how the fleece comes out.

  17. Meeganon 15 Mar 2011 at 1:17 am

    Awesome patterns – that figure 8 is amazing!

    Can’t wait for camp! :)

  18. Stephon 15 Mar 2011 at 6:55 pm

    Thanks for the giveaway Meghan!

    I think my favorite is the Echo Reversible Drop Stitch Mobius but the Infinity Cardi-Wrap is pretty intriguing too.

  19. Stacey Bon 17 Mar 2011 at 12:54 pm

    Rings of Cables Shrug is my favorite. I love the library too!

  20. Denise/CTon 18 Mar 2011 at 1:32 pm

    I love the look of Warrior Wings Cinched-Edge Shawl. Yep, that will be the first one from this book on my needles. I’ve had the pleasure to meet Kristen and she is a sweetheart, always willing to explain and help with her patterns. I am excited about the DVD, great idea!

  21. MelodyJon 18 Mar 2011 at 4:39 pm

    I like Ring Of Cables Shurg.


  22. Diana - DianaRod on Ravon 18 Mar 2011 at 5:31 pm

    I LOVE, love LOVE love, LOVE…the serpentine pattern on the back of the infinity cardi. I too would rather make it in a yarn that is solid instead of variegated. I like how the 8 gives shaping to the waistline, I wish there was a better photo of the front. Maybe if I win the book I’ll get to see it :)

  23. Beth Toddon 20 Mar 2011 at 7:16 pm

    Wow, such a great book by talented Kristin Omdahl! So hard to choose just one, so it will have to be the Ring of Cables Oval Shrug and the Echo Reversible Drop-Stitch Mobius for my favorite favorites!

    Thanks for the review and give away, and Happy Birthday to Littleman!
