    What a neat book idea. I’m working on socks, pillows and a sweater. Different projects for different locations. Home, work breaks and commuting.

    I like making shawl/wraps…they are beautiful yet practical…currently knitting a top for my daughter…an easy top:)

    Chris M. says:

    I have two lovely skeins of Mohair Splash is the most beautiful blue color, and am searching for just the right project – and I think this book just might be the source I need!

    Great idea for a book! Oh my, what I have on the needles… a mitered square baby sweater, some hats, 2 shawls, and a freeform crochet project …. and that’s only what i can see in front of me!

    Gothlily2000 says:

    I am currently knitting up a chevron patterned blanket for my fiance.  All the yarn is leftovers from my stash so it is going to be quite colorful, and possibly sort of ugly.

    NanaKnits4Us says:

    I’d love to win this!  I have 14 projects on the needles right now (I dug out all my WIPs and am trying to get through them one by one), but currently I’m actively working on a pair of fair isle mittens.  Winning this book would be a great reward to me for finishing up my projects…

    Right now the only thing on the needles is the dress I designed for Mom. I didn’t realize the guage of Entrelac was so different, so I had to frog most of it right before Christmas, so now I’m rushing to finish before her 86th birthday in April! Nice to see knitting content on the site again, and thanks for the giveaway.

    Connie says:

    I love Iris’ patterns.  I am actually working on one of her designs now, Dangling Leaves Shawl.  I NEED her book!

    jleekamitchell says:

    Jenbaker79 says:

    Looks like a great book! I have a hat one one set of needles, a shawl for an upcoming wedding on another set, and a humongo pile of squares that are still waiting to be stitched together for an afghan for my littlest one. So yes, I need another book of beautiful patterns that *must* be knitted! :)

    janalee kelly says:

    I like anything that is only one or two skeins.  I get bored easily.  These are gorgeous patterns and look very interesting to make.

    Michele says:

    My favorite projects are shawls and scarves. Ms. Schreier’s are so beautiful. Thank you for the giveaway.

    Tiffeny says:

    I have been unpacking and cleaning and baking, and little of anything else. I am going to start a baby sweater for my cousin’s first little baby. Would love to win this! I would finally make me something!

    Mcltjl says:

    I am knitting a Rowan sweater right now……but get daily updates from Artyarns and several of the patterns are from this book……would love to win the book so I can alternate projects!

    Erin N says:

    Thanks for the contest! I’ve currently got a sweater and a scarf on the needles. Different needles =)

    I’ve used a couple of Iris’ yarns and have been so happy with the results. What’s on my needles? I’ve got a sample requested by a LYS on one set of needles, a wimple of my own design on another and a thank you gift scarf ready to start this weekend….if I’m not paining my halls. :)

    Drmithome says:

    Only about 6 inches of a pink scarf are on my knitting needles right now. Would love to win this book.

    Aikelsey says:

    I’ve got a variation on the Wispy Cardi on the needles at the moment .. but always ready to queue up another project.

    I’m not going to admit how many things I’ve got on the needles but I’m spending most of my time learning to knit 2 socks at once and on a cranberry capelet – in green.  Still, I have plenty more needles if I win a copy

    Laura Lee says:

    I was quite inspirited with the capelet, in that it looks like it would work well in an office setting, fashionable enough to still appear business casual.
    As for what I have on my needles, I have one husband sweater, one pair of 100% silk socks I am attempting to design (adaptation of rose lattice pattern), a pair of husband socks almost completed, a second pair of husband socks about 3/4 completed, a Jacob homespun scarf using Estonian starflower pattern that just needs me to figure out the proper edging to complete, and a mohair shawl I started and then misplaced the pattern. At least, that is what is in the living room at this time. I probably have some lost projects hidden in the garage, too.

    Corimarie613 says:

    I don’t knit but my boyfriend does. and he would love this book. Right now he is finishing up an infinity scarf for a friend.

    Carlene Greene says:

    I love knitting shawls, and have been happy to see that they are en vogue this year.  I am currently knitting a shawl, a pair of socks, a hat, a pair of fingerless mitts, and a cowl.

    I must win this book!!!  On my needles right now are, first and for most, Iris’ Diamond Shawl pattern, so beautiful, can’t wait till it is done, then I have a triangular scarf for my son, and two blankets.  But please let me win that book, what will I do when I am done.  Thanks for the opportunity.

    Joyce Pusel says:

     I love Iris Shreier’s patterns. Currently, I’m knitting mittens.

    zic says:

    On the needles: two original designs, Swirled-striped hat, a pattern I sell on Ravelry, (and a perfect project for two unusual skeins of yarn, too!). Also a sweater going through the design process. 

    I’ve been designing for a few years now, mostly for local farms and yarn shops. And Schreier’s work inspires. I’m grateful to her for her beautiful designs, her outstanding yarns, her dye workshop, and books.On Ravelry and Craftys as Rebecca Zicarelli

    Karen says:

    On my needles now: Golden Leaf Shawl by Fickle Knitter Design, yarn is merino and tencell by Valkyrie, in indie dyer from the central coast area of California………love to support artisans! Like ArtYarns! like Iris!

    SewLindaAnn says:

    On my needles right now is a slouchy hat. I’m trying hard to get the band part to work better so it doesn’t stretch too much. I’m thinking of trying elastic.

    justval says:

    Currently on my needles are a baby blanket, (a good friend’s first baby.)This is my 2nd attempt at it and I am determined I will get it right. Thank you for such a wonderful give-a-way!
