Crochet Contest

Conest is over – thanks everyone!  We’ll announce the winners soon!

One of the best things about this job is the fact that I finally was introduced to crochet, much to my mom’s delight.  She had tried to teach me so many times but it never stuck until about a year ago – and now I have so many great crochet patterns to choose from!

Two of my all time favorite crochet designers are Ann Marie Ivins and Linda Permann – both of of whom I’ve discussed here on the blog.  Because I think they are both so wonderful, I figured I’d hold a blog contest to celebrate them!

Ann Marie designs such cute unique creates that I absolutely adore.  She had sent in her samples of Qinyao the Happy Dragon and Roxy the Ringtailed Cat and while I normally just return the samples to the desingers when we are done, Ann Marie asked if I wanted them!  Well I do, but I thought our blog friends would enjoy one of these little guys just as much!

So there’s Qinyao:

and Roxy

ready to come home to you!

In addition, Potter Craft sent us a couple of extra copies of Little Crochet, Linda Perman’s awesome new book.  

There are so many adorable projects in here – I can’t wait to make so many of them.  I mean check out this adorable mobile!

Since I have a copy already (that you couldn’t pry from my cold dead hands!) I’m going to give away one of Ann Marie‘s creatures with a copy of Linda’s book to 2 lucky winners, just to celebrate my love (and hopefully yours as well) for crochet!
