Book Giveaway #11 – Candy Babies AND Berroco Yarn

candy babies and berroco yarnTHE PRIZE

One reader will win Candy Babies: Cute Crochet for Wee Ones by Candi Jensen (published by Sixth and Spring Books) and four skeins of Berroco Suede and one Berroco Plush!

MY REVIEW

Anything for baby ties with hats for my favorite thing to knit/crochet. Candy Babies by Candi Jensen is a book exclusively devoted to crochet projects for babies.

It’s hard to pick favorites, but my top two are this ADORABLE baby bomber hat that uses Berroco Suede and Plush (yarns that are included in the giveaway!). I have started this project and I love working with the Berroco Suede yarn. It’s a little more squarish than round like most yarns and it is super soft. The plush is also very very soft and looks like little clouds on that hat!

My second favorite pattern in the book is for crocheted baby animal slippers. Aren’t they fabulous! I think Gus’s feet are too big for them now, but I’m going to have some in store for our next baby, whenever he/she arrives!

Besides these two patterns, this book is full of patterns for making sweaters, dresses, ponchos, blankets, boots, rompers, vests, and everything else a baby might need!

Thanks to Sixth and Spring Publishing (and Candi Jensen!) and Berroco for sponsoring this giveaway.

I actually don’t think that I have used, to my knowledge, any Berroco yarn but I look forward to winning this amazing giveaway and giving it a try!! I adore knitting/crocheting for babies as well and I would probably jump for joy if I won.

I read about Candy Babies. My brother and sister in law are trying to have a baby right now and they are pretty much going to love me, especially if I have this lovely book to pull from!

We allow our grandson to use an old camera (digital) and are always surprised at the detail in his pictures. He has a knack for finding the smallest bug, rock, feather, etc. to shoot.
