Let's have some fun!
It's time for another book giveaway! And this one is adorable.
Rebecca Danger of Dangercrafts is well-known for her original and creative toy designs, especially her monsters. Perhaps you are familiar with Maddox the Mischievous Monster? I've seen him popping up all over blogland for years.
Now Rebecca has taken her passion for monsters and created an entire nursery of designs in her latest book Knit a Monster Nursery. And today we have a copy to review and share.
Knit a Monster Nursery is chock full of patterns your littlest family member will enjoy, from clothing to toys to decorations.
I think these Monster Bootees would be a real treat in HK DK Lively. Maybe in Stick o'Butter and Zest.
Several of the patterns in the book also call for a fingering weight yarn, like Artisan Sock, including my absolute favourite: the Monster Mobile. How fun would this be in a nursery? The monster hanging upside down by his feet just slays me. I love it!
With 19 adorable patterns in the book you are sure to find the perfect idea for your nursery or perhaps to knit and give as a baby shower present. You'd be the hit of any shower, to be sure.
We love Rebecca's patterns so much, we are currently working with her on a super secret project (Shhh! I shouldn't even be mentioning it!). More on that in the future!
To see all the patterns included in the book, check out the book's ravelry page here.

And as promised, one of our lucky readers will win a copy of this super cute book. To be entered to win all you need to do is leave a comment on this post by midnight PST Friday, February 8, 2013 telling us how many knitting projects you currently have on the go (make sure you leave an email address or Ravelry name so we can find you). My answer? I've just cast on two new socks today (more on those soon) so that puts me up to 5 WIPs.
