"Use Up That Yarn" Review and Giveaway!

What crocheter doesn't have lots and lots of yarn leftover from their other projects in their stash? I know that I certainly do!

Well, there is a new book "Use Up That Yarn", 13 Designs to Crochet from your Stash, that will help us deplete some of the leftover yarn in our stash!

Designed by Drew Emborsky (The Crochet Dude ®) and published by Leisure Arts, this new book showcases thirteen never-before-published designs that are 'fantastically fast at shrinking" your yarn stash.

From worsted weight to bulky weight, almost every category of crochet projects are included in this book. There is something for every crocheter, from quick coasters to intermediate outer wear. Most of the projects in this book use less than 250 yards of yarn and are rated either Beginner or Easy+.
This would be a great book to add to your crochet pattern library!
My favorite designs include Fingerless Gloves, Snow Scarf and Hat Set and the Coasters.

One lucky reader will win a copy of this book, compliments of Leisure Arts. To be eligible to win, comment on this post telling us what you usually prefer to crochet: home decor, thread crochet, wearables, accessories, afghans or toys and dolls.
Please don't forget to LEAVE your EMAIL ADDRESS  or a way that you can be reached if you are the winner. One winner will be drawn at random next Wednesday, February 15, 2012.
