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!
