Blog Tour & Give-Away: Bambeanies

News Flash: Woolly Wormhead isn't woolly any longer. Or wormy of head. This threw me momentarily when I met her at TNNA this past summer. I wasn't actually sure it was really her. But, she assured me, it was. She has a non woolly and wormy name too, which seemed a better bet under the circumstances. Whatever one calls her, however, she and her hats are always fabulous. I had a terrific time talking with her after finally meeting her!

I am feeling really rather fortunate to be participating in the blog tour for her latest book, the charmingly named Bambeanies. (I love puns!) It's a book of wee hat patterns with adorable wee models to show them off to perfection. And it couldn't have come at a better time for me. I owe several babies some knitted love, and these are absolutely perfect. My very favorite of all is Nupkin.
Really. How cute is that?! Though I have to say the adorable model may have a little to do with my falling utterly head over heels. Then there is Moochie. (Same adorable model; did you notice?)
And Aurora. Look at that great hat! (And those beautiful deep brown eyes; I am a sucker for cute kids.)
Though, I have to admit that the babies for whom I am knitting are all boys. Every one of them. So Bimple is likely to be the pattern most used in this house. Isn't it cute?!
I do think that, after the boys, I will need to knit Connie's little cutie-pie a Bambeanie. I am, after all, her honorary auntie. :)

So this brings us to the give-away part! Her Woolly-ness has been kind enough to offer me three copies of Bambeanies - two digital copies and a signed print copy - to give to you! Leave me a comment on this post by 11:59 pm PST, Thursday October 13, and I will select three recipients randomly! Good luck! :)

They're so cute.. kids and hats equally. Only problem is that I'm going to have to resize a couple of those hats for my noggin too after knitting them for my kids and some other little peeps I know. Of course. I won't have their cuteness factor.
