Halloween is almost here and to celebrate we're giving away three books that feature spooky crochet and knitting projects, as well as other fun craft ideas!

In this book, author Nuriya Khegay shows you how to create 20 adorable knitted monster themed hats, mittens, scarves, and booties. Inside its pages you'll find step-by-step instructions with full page color photos of the completed projects. Novice knitters will benefit from the section titled "Knitting Basics" filled with how-to advice to get you started.

Authors Lan-Anh Bui and Josephine Wan introduce you to the world of Bakemono, creatures with origins in Japanese folkore. This book offers 20 fun designs with simple to follow directions, colorful illustrations, and full page color photos.

Inside Artful Halloween, you'll find "31 frightfully elegant" home decor, costume and enteraining ideas. Some of the projects include Button and Bead Spiders, Thread-Wrapped Pumpkins, Monstrously Adorable Cupcake Toppers, paper hats and Halloween themed aprons.

Leave a comment on this post indicating the book you would like to win before the deadline-11:59 EST pm, October 25, 2013-and you could be one of the three lucky winners who will be chosen at random and announced on October 28, 2013.

Don't forgot to enter the Threads Halloween Costume Contest!

This sounds great. Both the books are lovely.
It's very hard to choose any book among these. All the books are just awesome. I would love to win any of these :D

Should I love to get the Monster knits so that I could make monster hats for babies ? Oh no, there would be many moms here who would love to get this book. Moreover, I'm not good a knitting. :)
And there would be many housemakers who are getting ready for the halloween, sot hey would be wishing to win the artful halloween ;)

I would love to win the Crochet Bakemono :) I'm learning crocheting and love to make dolls and monsters :)
I guess this book could help me learning more about that :)
