Qing Fibre Update and a CONTEST!

Today’s book giveaway includes these two books. Leave a comment to enter. Today’s question – last week we talked about favorite fall foods. How about your favorite fall drink? Mine would be either a Mocha or Hot Chocolate. (See the chocolate theme there?) Also, indicate your book preference, if you have one.

Sheri and The Loopy Ewe Crew


  1. Love that French Girl book! Hmm, can’t beat a hot toddy in the fall! A little brandy, hot water and a bit of honey and cinnamon is my favorite way! 🙂 Good for what ails ya.

  2. I like red wine year round but it seems extra nice in the fall–same with chai tea!

    I’d prefer French Girl Knits.

  3. LOVE all the new yarns! TLE never disappoints.

    Favorite Fall drink: I was a snob about it for soooooo long but finally gave in and tasted and now I’m a total convert to Pumpkin Spiced Latte!

    And I have no book preference – they both look wonderful!

  4. I’m definitely team Mocha!!!
    Would love either book but especially the sock book since that is 90% of what I make.

  5. I love the Starbucks salted caramel mochas – at least until gingerbread lattes & eggnog lattes come along!

    I’d love the “French Girl Knits” book – thanks for the chance!

  6. Hot cider with a shot of rum always hits the spot in the fall. The French girl knits would be my preference if I were to win the book!

  7. My favorite fall drink is mulled cider. So yummy when waiting for the rain (which is California doesn’t happen often enough).

    I’d love some Qing Fibre, but you already killed my budget last month, so my bunnies are reminding me they need food more than I need more yarn – though that’s debatable. LOL

    I’d love the French Girl book if I’m lucky enough to win.

  8. Fall drink is definitely pumpkin spice latte! Every fall, I can’t wait til Starbucks has it available.

    My preference is the sock book. Can’t ever have enough sock books and patterns!

  9. My favorite is hot chocolate! Isn’t everyone’s hot chocolate???

    I’d love the French Girl Knits book!

    Thank you for being so generous.

  10. My favorite fall drink is spice filled hot tea with milk at anytime of the day or night. Chai is warming.

    Socks! Please.

  11. Hi, my fall beverage of choice would be wine (but is also my favorite for winter, spring and summer too) 🙂

  12. Apple cider would be my favorite fall drink. I almost picked hot chocolate but that is more of a winter drink for me.

  13. Irish Coffee, a rare indulgence or Kalua laced coffee. The sock knitting book would be my preference.

  14. My favorite fall drink is an Americano. It also happes to be my favorite winter, spring and summer drink 🙂

    If I were lucky enough to win, I would prefer the French Girl Knits book.

  15. My favorite fall drink is mulled apple cider- the spicier the better. The scent of the spices permeating through the house takes me back decades to my grandparents’ gift shop, where they would serve it to customers during the holidays.

  16. Love Hot Chocolate with whipped cream. So decadent. French girl knits accessories looks interesting. Thank you for the giveaway.

  17. I’m with you on the mocha or hot chocolate! Or a nice hot cider – no pumpkin spice for me, it’s apple cinnamon all the way! 🙂 Tough choice on the books… I think I’d have to go with the sock one!

  18. My current favorite fall drink is a Virgin Moscow/Russian mule (although a good friend assures me it is even better with the vodka). Apple cider, ginger beer, topped with an apple slice and a cinnamon stick.
    If I were to win either book would be wonderful.
