Update 1/11/12: Congratulations to our 10 winners of the iPad app downloads: community members 1) Dawn_Hays, 2) gerscott, 3) RebbeccaH, 4) Arsie, 5) ssanders830, 6) LindaTenS, 7) sminick397, 8) chrismomom, 9) cassytom, and 10) tamiknits. Check your Knitting Daily inbox for download instruction, or if you don't receive an email by 2 pm ET today please contact Jaime at Interweave for your special code. She can be reached at JaimeG (AT) interweave (dot) com. Thanks to everyone for your response!

It's about time we gave something away here in the New Year on Knitting Daily, isn't it? No, we aren't giving away 10 iPads (I wish!), but I am excited to announce a giveaway of The Knitter's Companion app for the iPad (retail $9.99 each at iTunes) to 10 lucky readers. This digital version of Interweave's best-selling book of all time launched just before the holidays and skyrocketed to a Top 5 bestseller in the lifestyle category among all paid iPad apps on iTunes! We've been so excited about the response.

The Knitter's Companion by Vicki Square, originally published in 1996, has sold more than 250,000 copies in print and was updated in 2006 and again in 2010. Now, this 2012 iPad version is a handy presentation of the print book content in digital form—created exclusively for viewing on the iPad to take with you wherever you go and whenever you want.

Note: Android tablet users, we will have a version for your devices by next month and we will announce another giveaway with that launch—stay tuned!

For your chance to win the promo code download for your iPad, all you have to do is leave a comment between now and Tuesday, January 10 at 11:59, EST, and tell me: Who or what is your favorite knitting companion? Is it music? A person or pet? Your supplies? A favorite TV show that you like to knit to?

I will draw at random 10 winning names among all comments and post the winners here on Wednesday morning, January 11. Don't forget to check back to this blog and see if you won!

Good luck!

Arsie & gerscott,

Jamie contacted me regarding the matter.  Hopefully, she contacted you as well. "Oh no! It appears that the promo codes that were given to us by iTunes expired a day early. We're contacting the app store right now to see if we can get another one with a longer period of active service, and if we can't, we will purchase iTunes gift cards for the value of the app and gift them to you. I should know something either way by Monday. Thanks for your patience, and please accept my apologies for the delay."

I'm sure they'll get it sorted out shortly!

My favorite knitting companions are my ever-patient husband and old kitty, Lucy.  Hubby never interrupts while I'm counting and even brings me a cup of tea on occasion. Lucy has a routine that she sits by my chair until I come sit down, then she jumps up on my lap where she is then covered with her own knitted blanket (if she's lucky, my project will cover her, too).  And I'd better not have to leave for any reason until she is done napping, thank you.  TV show would have to be Once Upon a Time, Castle, or Hawaii 5-0.  I like a little "cheesecake" while I knit ;-)

My favorite knitting companion?  My guild!  I wouldn't enjoy the act of knitting quite so much without the inspiration of other knitters.  We've been an active and thriving guild for only five years, but the 100 or so knitters I hang out with challenge me to become a better knitter, encourage me to enhance my stash, answer questions, point out new books and magazines, cheer me on and so much more.  For the times they're not around?  I'm hoping a Knitter's Companion ipad app can fill the void.

I only learned to knit a few months ago, so more complicated patterns require undisturbed time, so I like to knit behind my upright Steinway piano which divides my lounge and gives me a private "nook" in which to hide away with my latest obsession! I love knitting! Why did I spend so many years of my life without you?

Hi! Last year I decided to learn to knit so that when my husband is watching my unfavorite TV shows I can be in the same room as him without me making grumpy comments! It works. I used to put my nose in a book, and sometimes still do, but knitting makes me "more present" it seems, and I've found some good points to his TV faves. It's "win" for both of us, plus yay for knitting!

My favorite knitting companion is my cat, Diesel.  He's very un-catly about yarn and sometimes the yarn drapes over his head as it travels from the skein to my hands.  It's just a problem when he sits on the yarn, definitely has a negative effect on the tension.

I live in the convergence zone North of Seattle.  The convergence zone is even cloudier and rainier than Seattle is... And my favorite way to spend all those rainy days is to cuddle up with my current knitting project(s) (I never have just one...) and watch my two kids playing together on the floor, with the BBC version of "Pride and Prejudice" on the tv... At about six hours long, I have plenty of time to get some serious knitting done while I enjoy the banter between Miss Elizabeth Bennett and Mr. Darcy.

Actually my IPad I got for Christmas the year before last is my favorite knitting companion. I have all types of patterns saved in IBooks, Utube is handy 24/7 no matter where I roam to explain or show me how to do something that has me stumped, I have all my favorite knitting sites loaded and ready to browse, I use flipboard as my own personalized knitting journal to keep up with all things creative, and I have hundreds of knitting blogs to read or post my projects on my own. I also subscribe to several digital knitting magazines. There is just so much info in such a small space and I can take it everywhere with me.

My favorite knitting companion is my granddaughter Destani who is six yrs old.  I taught her how to knit last summer & she loves to knit with me.  Sometimes she just sits on my lap & watches me knit then questions every stitch I've made & how I've done it.  When she is not around I'm on my rocker/recliner with my Boston Terrier Buster or either of my miniature pinschers Rex & Daisy.  I usually listen to audio books or podcasts on my iphone while knitting but if my husband is home we watch movies while I'm knitting.  I always have a cup of tea, my stitch markers, my ipad which has my patterns, my measuring tape & plenty of bags of yarn around me!

The other day, I was nervous she was going to bite on my new Lantern Moon needles as she has with other nice wood needles (if you're not familiar with these, they are very, very nice wooden needles, I got on sale, which is the only way I could afford them!), but she didn't, although came close once!

My favourite knitting companions are my audiobooks. They are interesting enough to keep me knitting and finally finishing that second sock but at the same time I can always press pause if I get to a complicated stitch in my work. And of course I can listen to them even when I'm underway and knitting during my daily commute. :)
