Book Review and Giveaway!!!!

Wraps For All Seasons

andees


If you have followed me for long… You know I love to collect great crochet books!!  I have written many reviews over the last couple of years for All Free Crochet and other crochet sites..

When my dear friend Andee Graves asked me if I would like to check out her newly released crochet pattern booklet, I jumped at the chance!  Andee has been a crochet designer for many years and has so many beautiful patterns; I was so excited to have a chance to browse through her latest publication… Wraps For All Season!  It combines 4 of my favorite things, Yarn, Crochet, Wraps and Andee… This fabulous booklet is published by Annie’s Crochet and features 6 different designs.

Annie’s Crochet was kind enough to send me a copy to drool over… And even better~ they will be sending a copy of this awesome book to one of my fans!!  You could be the lucky winner… Just read how you can enter at the bottom of this post!!

You can purchase this in paperback or Kindle download… Check it out!

So, now a little about Wraps For All Season…

Six magnificent designs, each one a different shape, size, style and technique.  If you were to ask me which one was my favorite design, it would be so hard to choose. I wear wraps very frequently, I live in an area where the temperature varies and my “daytime job” as a purchasing agent for a forest products company means I am out in the plant, going between buildings and sitting at my desk… Layering is a must and I love to show off my crochet… I think I may have to make every one of these patterns!  But, the Frosty Mornings Crescent Shawl on page 16 has drawn me in and will be my first project!! Feminine and elegant, this pattern will surely draw attention!!  The Autumn Days Shawlette page 10 would be perfect for the current season! Even though the Summer Seaside Shaw page 7  sounds like it’s for warmer weather… It is a larger shawl and the edging is magnificent… I would wear this one year round!! It just so happens the Hint of Spring wrap page 2 is my favorite color scheme… I would love to use the same yarn and keep this one at work!  The Sassy Spring Wrap page 5 simply puts a smile on my face!! Lastly but of course not least, the Winterfall Ruana on page 13 is something I have always wanted to make… full coverage and versatile!

As usual, this Annie’s Booklet has great pictures, clear print, a great stitch guide and photo tutorial of the stitches used in the back of the book.  This will be a great addition to my Crochet Book Library!!  I hope you will make this your newest edition to your collection too!!

    Making different shawls and wrap is one of my favorite things to do because you can make them so different for all occasions and all seasons. You made each pattern sound exciting, Ruana’s are on my list to make and Winterfall has an inviting name.the way you described the book with pictures, stitch guide, clear print and photo tutorial making these should be a snap..very inviting, I will be looking forward to owning this book.

  7. I love a good wrap! I’m always cold in my office – year round! – so I almost always wear a scarf or shawl or extra wrap of some sort. I’d love to have copy of this book. Thank you!

  8. Wonderful review and book! Thanks so much for the chance to win a copy!

  12. Your book review was an interesting overview. My only question is are some of them ‘easy’ or quick as I am a novice! Thank you.

  13. LAVINA CHAFFIN :

    I love to crochet wraps, but usually give them as gifts. Since the winters are mild here, I usually only need a light wrap instead of a coat. I want to thank you for the many patterns I have enjoyed from your blog.

  14. I wear a wrap of some kind every day! This book sounds awesome and right up my alley! Thanks for reviewing it.

    This looks like a great book to have to make some shawls and wraps to help keep warm on the cool days and nights in Iowa! I would love to get the opportunity to win this and make some! I would also make some to give away as Christmas gifts!

  21. I read your review as I was sitting at my volunteer job at a local library and was thinking I was cold. Not an uncommon experience here. I need to make a wrap to leave for other volunteers to use as well! Your review has inspired me to try making one. If I don’t win I will be buying the book!

  22. I haven’t really made many wraps, and didn’t like the result of the two I tried. Your review has made me rethink wraps. I’ll have to give it another go.

  26. Natishia Curry :

    Looks like a good book to have.

  27. I love shawls, wraps, and scarves, too, and I enjoy making them for myself and for gifts. One thing I noticed about these patterns is the versatility of each pattern. The patterns even have an edging which will keep me from having to make that decision about what would look great on the finished garment! Hope my number is picked. Thank you for this opportunity.

  31. I love shawls and wraps and the review makes me really want to try these patterns. Thank you for the opportunity to win the book and also for sharing your review.

  51. Hi Elena, I always love Annie’s products, be it patterns, books, supplies, or whatever, and this looks like a good one as usual. I love all kinds of wraps & shawls & own several. Even tho I live in the south and we have a short winter, I will never again wear a coat other than a raincoat – instead I’ll wear my wraps, shawls, scarves, headbands, hats, well, you get the idea, lol, because they’re so much more comfortable, prettier, less bulky & confining, and I’ll enjoy my handiwork when wearing them! I make a lot of lighter weight pieces for warmer temps but when I like a pattern, I make it no matter what! Thx for the review and giveaway! 🙂

  52. Carol Diane Cross :

    This looks like an awesome book, I love to crochet and give what I make as gifts and some new patterns are so exciting!

  53. This is right up my ally, I crochet shawls and wraps, for my Mother and my Mother-In-Law, and also for some of the Ladies in our Church as well…. I love your Amazing Grace Wrap, Beatrice on Ravelry, and yes I do follow your patterns on there because they are just Gorgeous and I also crochet Afghans too. So THANK-YOU, VERY MUCH FOR A CHANCE TO ENTER THIS AWESOME GIVEAWAY, WOULD REALLY LOVE TO WIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Cindy Garlotte

  54. A shawl for every season is right up my crochet alley. I don’t wear them much myself, but I find them so comforting to make that I keep stitching and find homes for them. If I had to choose a favorite, it would be Summer Seaside for the delicate edging and use of a plant-fiber based yarn.

  55. peggy E workman :

    I love wraps and love making them. I would enjoy these patterns.

  56. I, like you, love to crochet and wear shawls. There is a comfort and beauty to wearing them. I would love very much to be able to make all of these lovely pieces. Best of luck to all here. Thank you for sharing the news about this wonderful book and the opportunity to get one too 😊

  57. I learned how to crochet when I was younger and recently picked it back up wanting to relearn! I think I could get a lot from this book!

  58. LeAnn Harbert :

    This looks like it has several shawls I would like to make.
