Every year, Lion Brand Yarn Company hosts the "Vanna's Choice Contest" in which participants submit a creative knit or crochet design made with Vanna's Choice yarn for the chance to travel to California to meet Vanna White. Our 2012 contest winner was "Gramma" Nancy Nielsen, who made adorable matching animal hat and booties sets as baby gifts.

Nancy was inspired by the animal hat patterns she previously found on the Lion Brand website to make as affordable baby gift options, and her one-of-a-kind sets became known as "Gramminals." In 2013, Nancy met Vanna White at our annual Craft Hobby Association (CHA) show in Anaheim, California, and Nancy's designs were so irresistibly cute, that we worked with her to create a book chock full of sets! Read more about Gramma Nancy's experience here.

Vanna was quite impressed with "Gramma" Nancy's sets too ... in fact, she was so impressed that she even wrote the foreword to the book! Nancy's book will be on sale October 21st, and we'll be sure to let you know once we've got it available on our site so you can have the full range of patterns at your disposal.

In the meantime, we're debuting two special patterns from the book: an Elephant hat and Lion Hat (of course), AND we're giving away 3 copies of Gramma Nancy's Animal Hats (and Booties Too!, courtesy of Potter Craft, check below for more details!
