Mama's Notebooks Giveaway (Ends 8/3) US


I am excited to bring you another giveaway from Mama's Notebooks!  

I still use mine regularly and find it quite helpful.  (Here is my original review of The Knit & Crochet Notebook.)  This notebook is especially great if you like to customize your patterns. I always end up tweaking patterns!  However, even if you always follow a pattern exactly this is still a handy tool.  



If you're like me, you probably save patterns on Ravelry, Pinterest, Kollabora, and other sites, AND have various books and papers laying about, but with this Notebook you can save everything, including your notes and tweaks, in one convenient spot.

This notebook features:
  • Project pages
  • A Hook and Needle tracker
  • Project wish list
  • Measuring guide
  • Standard weight reference
Below you can see one of my pages. This crochet hat pattern is one that I come back to again and again.  (I used it for The Orange Hat, The Cream & Purple Hat, and various others.)  As you can see, the project page is graph paper, which is super helpful for more detailed projects.  



One lucky winner will receive a copy of 



Details and Fine Print: Enter this giveaway by using the Rafflecopter below.  Open to US only.  Must be 18+.  Void where prohibited.  Facebook and other social media are not affiliated with this giveaway.  The Philosopher's Wife is not responsible for prize shipment or fulfillment.

  8. I will follow a pattern but if I find a way to customize it, I will. I like to add my own special touch to it. Thanks for the chance to win! I could sure use a notebook like this.

  13. I don't know if my other one went through. But this looks amazing. I change patterns all the time on account of tight tension. And all my notes are spread out among a lot of notebooks

  19. When I find a pattern I like, I tend to use it many times. As I go along, I find myself making changes that go along with the way I crochet.
    I also tend to lose patterns that I liked at one time. This would help to keep track of the favorites in a better way.
