Blog and giveaway tour: Cast On, Bind Off

A while back I was invited to participate in a blog tour of reviews and giveaways for a knitting book whose title alone sounded pretty great to me: Cast On, Bind Off: 54 Step-by-Step Methods, by Leslie Ann Bestor.

When my review copy of the book arrived, I knew it was going to be a must-have for all of us because look:

Spiral binding, folks!  A technical reference with spiral binding for easy access just coos 'sober thought' and 'careful planning', don't you think?

Having looked through it now I can tell you there are a lot more reasons I am in love with this book but they will have to keep for my own review at the end of July.  In the meantime, I want you all to have every chance you can get to win your own free copy, by visiting the other sites on the tour:

Have a great day everybody, and I sure hope there's some knitting in it!

For public libraries spiral bindings mean built in obsolescence.

Does it really Julie? Why is that - are the pages not secure enough for library use?

I love the spiral binding, the books lay flat and sit on my book holder much easier than the regular style.
