COZY UP WITH A GOOD BOOK GIVEAWAY!!

Welcome to our first giveaway! We have only been blogging now for a couple months and were going to wait until we reached 50 followers but are enjoying it so much that we thought we'd have a giveaway!

So both Curlypow and I like to 'make' things when we're not reading. I just learned how to knit last October. After 7 scarves, I went on to make a little stuffed stripey elephant. Curlypow is a bit of an expert at knitting as she has been doing it a bit longer than I have. So to show our appreciation to our followers, we have decided to do something different and have our first giveaway with the theme -

COZY UP WITH A GOOD BOOK!!

Included in this package are

- One pair of beautiful hand-knit wool socks (Anyone who has a pair of hand-knit socks knows how comfy these are on your feet.  You really should give them a try!)

- Paperback copy of Wings by Aprillynne Pike (Fantastic read!)



I recently finished reading Wings and loved this book. I will be doing a review later this weekend.  In the meantime, take a look at Curlypow's review on Spells, the second book in the series here.

  2. About Wings, I got it from the library once and didn't get to read it before it went back. I'd love a second chance at it, because it's got a dreamy cover and I've heard good things about it in general. :-)

  11. Hand knitted socks are the best. My mom has a pair, but I can't seem to bum them off her without her whining that I steel her socks xD
