  6. Hi Mari, Thanks for the chance to win this book! I had requested it, but it never showed up - it looks like a lot of fun, kind of reminds me of the tv series Charmed. :)

    I'm now a follower here and on the knitting site (I love to knit and crochet, and am trying to find a project for the yarn I've spun on my old spinning wheel!)
