December Book Competition
« on: December 02, 2015, 03:46:12 PM »
I'm giving away the Addi Somekh book, "The Inflatable Crown" It's a good one.
If you would like to post a Christmas related design here then I will add all the names into a hat in the New Year to pick a winner.

Thanks to those at The Millennium Jam for passing over a few books so that I could give them away as prizes, muchly appreciated.

I'll post these here but will not be putting my name into the hat to win the book as I own one from years gone by.

I was just looking at the father Xmas hat thinking it's not quite right, this one would be easier to make with three pinch twists at the bottom of the hat.
And I like the fuller looking beard as well.
