audwell writes: Thanks so very much for the opportunity to try to win a copy of this book. I'm writing not for myself, but for a young teen friend who just started knitting and is trying to make these hats. She'd like to start a business selling them and I'd like to try to help her. Hope you can make this happen for a sweet young girl. I think this book would inspire her dreams even further. Keeping my fingers crossed so I can give her the book. Thanks.

vtelfer writes: As a school teacher for 5yrs-18yrs students, I would love the older kids to knit these beautiful hat creations for the younger ones, with the middle years writing a play/story for them to act out in these fabulous creations! A book to aid the learning for a whole school! What a fabulous resource and educationally giving & engaging prospect :-)
