About the Contest:
It’s been ages since I had a giveaway … but that’s about to change!
Thanks to the folks at Penguin Random House, I get to give away not one, but FIVE audiobooks to you lucky, lucky knitters.
We all appreciate the quiet, contemplative nature of crafting–making things with your hands, manipulating yarn or fabric into new shapes and combinations. Being creative is one of the primary drives for anybody who makes things.
But sometimes, the act of creation isn’t enough on its own.
Maybe you’re working through a long swath of stockinette stitch, or you need something to distract and entertain you while your hands work. Knitting with a group of friends does this wonderfully–but friends aren’t always available.
Television can work, too. You can stream seasons of your favorite shows or catch up on your movie watching while you work … except, sometimes you need to concentrate on what your hands are doing. Looking back and forth to the screen is too distracting.
But still, you’re just that tiny bit bored. Or you’re shaken by the fact that, by sitting with your yarn, you’re not getting anything else done. Perhaps you’re torn between wanting to curl up with a good book and driven to knit.
Audiobooks and crafting are practically made for each other. Your hands can work busily away while your brain follows daring exploits or indulges in romantic escapes. Listening to a good story takes us back to our youngest days when Mom would read to us. It’s relaxing in a way that watching television isn’t.
Which brings us to our giveway.
Thanks to their generosity, I have FIVE audiobooks to give away. Five!
I want to read at least three of these, myself, but no. I’m offering these audio CDs to YOU instead.
To win, leave a comment below listing your top three choices. Winners will be selected by a random drawing and I’ll try to match up titles with your preferences, but make no guarantees. For the sake of shipping, winners must be in the United States.
But, there’s more–send friends over to enter and, as long as they tell me who sent them, you’ll get more chances to win!
Entries are open through Friday the 11th.
Enter now! Because story-telling never gets old.
These audiobooks were kindly donated by Penguin Random House. Thank you!
