  3. This is a great giveaway Jennifer, I've wanted to write my own patterns and I looked on the internet but I couldn't find much at all about how to go about it. I'd love to win this book, I might even buy it if I don't win! LOL

  10. I would love this book! I have always wanted to make or most definitely be able to modify patterns. I am just not skilled enough to do it on my own, so the book would really help. I am in love with the Wild Leek Cowl!

  14. Jennifer I would like to ask a few questions. I love your ideas and would love to remake them and sell. NOT the patterns but using your pattern and also giving credit as the designer. You a scarf back a while ago and I love it and I think it was a everybody scarf? But could it be made into a blanket ?
