    I’m glad to see a new book about edgings. I have a knitting machine, and edgings are always an issue with large pieces of stockinette stitch.

  • Shannon Yeaton

    Thank you for a great interview. I really like Kristin’s designs and have been wanting to start crocheting!

  • Adriana

    I would love to win this book and other prizes. The edgings would look amazing on my baby blankets! :)

  • Terri

    I’m keeping my fingers crossed I win Kristin’s new book and other gifts!!! I have never won anything in my whole life and I would be on ‘cloud nine’! Kristin is one of my favorite people in the fiber world. I watch “Knitting Daily” and became familiar with her there, so now I follow her on her blog, facebook, and Ravelry. She’s just a super sweet person. Her edgings that she so often illustrates on “Knitting Daily” totally amaze me, they’re beautiful. Thanks. Terri in TN

    It is the edging that makes a simple item special and one of a kind.

  • sjanova

    I’m still learning to use my crochet hooks (and those I inherited from my mother) and moving on with both knitted and crocheted edgings. I always enjoy Kristin’s segments on the TV program and it was great to hear from her.

  • Mamta Motiyani

    I’ve never though about adding edging to knits I’m going to have to add this to my reference liberary.

    I love Kristin’s work, and have one of her other books. Plus I’m an avid crocheter and knitter, and I adore the fact that she works in both areas. Crocheted edging on knit fabric is particularly lovely.

  • DonnaM

    The finishing touches on any hand-made item takes it from rustic to craft. This book is on my wish list now.

    What beautiful edgings! I would love to win this book so I can beautifully finish some handmade items.

  • debwp

    These edges would really add a touch of elegance to my knitted sweaters and shawls!

  • Papfabs

    Love Kristin Omdahl and her designs. Adding “Edgings” to my library would be a great asset to my own projects.

  • Merri Williams

    I first learned about crocheted edgings from my husband’s grandmother who made them for all of her “pillow slips” that she embroidered. She lived to be 97 years old and made everything by hand or with her treadle sewing machine. The edgings on the cover of this book remind me very much of her work. I can’t wait to get it and try some of these out for myself. :-)

  • Laura

    Great podcast – thanks!

  • Linda

    Love the Palmira shawl. Edgings would be a great addition to my library.

  • Sheri

    The book sounds great.

  • Ann

    I have a friend, Brenda T, who has been there for me over and over! She is a dedicated crocheter and has passed on her love of crochet to many people. (myself included). I would love to give her this book. (may I please keep the yarn if I win?) The book is way beyond me, but would be perfect for Brenda.

  • Mindy

    Would love to try them!

  • Martha Bond

    I’m working on a project right now that needs a beautiful edge like one of these. Your book looks like exactly what I need.

    I love listening to Kristen talking about what she does. She’s always has something interesting to say. The edgings look wonderful.

  • http://www.facebook.com/amy.c.berger Amy C Berger

    I live for reference books…edgings are so versatile!

  • Rachel

    I am always looking for stitch dictionaries that have more elaborate designs than just the basics. This seems like a wonderful collection of more feminine designs.

  • Susan H

    Edgings are the finishing touch on fine knits! Kristin is a fantastic designer!

  • dmw

    Love the idea of being able to embellish and/or finish my projects with the edgings of my projects! thanks for considering me

    I started watching Kristin on the Knitting Daily TV Show on our OPB Station. She is so sweet and excited about her craft! As I do not have anything published of hers, I’d love to receive this new book.

  • Cheryl

    I love to collect knitting and crochet books.

  • http://www.facebook.com/jacqlinc Jacqlin Sue Cannon

    I listened to Ready, Set, Knit!, and agree with you, Kathy about crocheting an edge being less complicated than picking up stitches and knitting! Having this book by Kristin Omdahl would be a great addition to my knitting/crochet reference library!

  • Merry

    I love and admire Kristin…what an amazing fiber artist! Would love a copy of her new book! Have watched hr on tv and she makes things so easy to understand!
