  1. With so many babies being born lately, this is perfect for new ideas. Thank you for sharing.

  2. I can’t wait to try the patterns in this book, Kristi Simpson is one of my favourite designers.

  3. Their Yarn Pooling Book intrigues me because I have just found two skeins in two different colors. I have always had such a hard time finding pooling yarn, and now that I have I’d love to learn more about it.

  4. Would love to win a copy of The Modern Nursery. We are expecting a new grandson in May and I have been busy making blankets etc. Just looking at the descriptions and patterns you highlighted makes me think the book would be very useful.
