Sorry I’ve been behind in my postings lately, but, unfortunately, sometimes one has to make earning a living a priority over one’s stitching. A sad but true reality.
Yesterday, in a desperate attempt to do anything besides finish grading the final set of research papers I just received, I cleaned and reorganized my home office. My home office has always had something of a split personality — half Victorian scholar’s cubby-hole, half knitter’s storage unit — but lately it’s taken on a kind of manic, schizophrenic, out-of-control quality that makes it nearly impossible for me to get anything done. Needless to say, on most days I find it hard to work up the energy or the passion to tackle this ravenous beast, but when I’m confronted with a stack of (largely uninspired) papers to grade, I often find myself excited to do all kinds of things that would otherwise be unthinkably dull.
However, my procrastination is your gain, my friends! I have discovered that I have duplicate copies of two very nice knitting magazines, the Fall 2012 issue of Jane Austen Knits and the Fall 2012 issue of Knitting Traditions (pictured below and above, respectively). I don’t know what I could have been thinking about in Fall 2012! Anyway, one or both of these can be yours if you leave a comment below with one interesting observation about your own (bad?) knitting habits.* Good luck to all!
*Special note to international readers: I will try my best to find an affordable way to send your magazine to you, but I reserve the right to cancel this giveaway if the cost of postage becomes prohibitive.

Saw your post on the fb weho snb page and would be more that happy to take the Jane Ausren knits off you hands. I’m not familiar with the other but if no one else would like it I can take that too. Thanks so much
Hi Yuki! Thanks for stopping by! The *Jane Austen Knits* is yours — send me your address by email to email@example.com, and I’ll pop it in the mail. I’m glad it’s going to a good home. I’ll let you know if anyone else claims the other one.
I love it when you do magazine giveaways!
My bad knitting (and crochet) habit is that I wait until the end of a project to deal with the ends of the yarn. Sometimes a project sits around for a while before I get to dealing with them. My last project (a blanket) had 54 ends to deal with. Ugh!
Hi Robin! I have the same bad habit — I hate dealing with ends, so I put them off until the end, which just makes it worse. 54! Yikes! What a nightmare! Send me your address to firstname.lastname@example.org and the issue of *Knitting Traditions* is yours. Thanks for reading!
Kate – your generosity is cray cray.
Thanks, Daisy! Sorry you missed the giveaway!
