An Adorable & Spooky Contest!

Contest is now closed – thanks for entering!  We’ll draw the winners on 10/9!

This week on the podcast I was so delighted to talk to two fantastic designers – Anna Hrachovec of Mochimochiland and crochet designer extraordinaire, Deja Jetmir.  Both of them have brand new books out that I’m really excited about (if you couldn’t tell from the podcast).

Since Halloween is my favorite time of year these came at a perfect time!  I switch between crochet and knitting when it comes to toys so I’ve been working on projects from both books.

Deja is the most prolific crochet designer in the IDP program.  She has 17 patterns on our site and many more on the way.  Wonderfully Horrific Crochet is her first foray into eBooks and each of the 14 designs are so fun and well written.  And every pattern is in Brava! My favorite is the Little Bat – I love bats and he’s just so cute!

I’ve started my own in Brava Worsted in Umber Heather – he’s turning out so cute!  Unfortunately I lost one of his ears on my way to work today so I’ll have to save his photo shoot until next week.

I’ve written about my love for Mochimochiland in the past – I just adore Anna‘s quirky style.  I have her 2 other books and many of her patterns – she is just so imaginative when it comes to toys!  So a book of her monsters & creatures like Super-Scary Mochimochi was tailor made for me.

Aww, I love the Sarcophacat!

So if, like me, you love cute fun toys, do I have a contest for you!  I have 3 copies of Super-Scary Mochimochi and 3 copies of Wonderfully Horrific Crochet to give away!  All you need to do to enter is leave a comment – tell me your favorite Halloween creature and which book you would like.  I’ll draw 6 winners total on Tuesday October 9th – 3 knitters and 3 crocheters!  Good luck!
