Thanks so much to Amy Roberts & Donna Hulka at Crochetville for coordinating this event! (If you missed any of the stops earlier this month, you can see the list on the Crochetville blog.
I have a couple of things I'd like to share, but first I have a big announcement! If you've ever considered trying to sell your crocheted items or original crochet patterns on Etsy, but just didn't know where to start, I will soon be teaching a class covering exactly that! Registration is now open and class will start on April 4 - you can read more details on this page. (You do need to have a free account at Crochetville to take the class.)
A cute drawstring-style purse that you can personalize with unique buttons and by using favorite colors for the row of little flowers.
This pattern is free until March 19 only - click on the picture to go to the pattern page for all the details and to download your PDF!
I love stitch markers - especially unique ones. But I always had a heck of a time with the "lobster claw" clasp that most handmade markers for crocheters seemed to have. After playing around with some ideas, I came across "lever back" earring findings - and they work so much better. When you open them, they stay open until you can get the marker exactly where you want it. (Plus they can double as earrings - how fun is that??)
I'm giving away a set of stitch markers - the winner gets to choose which ones they like the best. You can see the styles I currently have right on this page.
There are several ways to enter:
- liking my Facebook page
- subscribing to my newsletter
- joining my Ravelry group
- even just posting a comment on this blog - tell me which set you'd choose if you won!
The contest will run until March 19 - yes, open to international visitors!
Crochetville is a proud corporate sponsor of Halos of Hope, a 501(c)3 charity devoted to providing crocheted, knitted, and other handmade hats to cancer patients around the country.
We are very happy to help support Halos of Hope in two ways throughout our blog tour this month. First, we’re encouraging everyone to make and donate hats for Halos of Hope. We’re asking everyone to send their hats directly to Crochetville, so they can be tallied. They will then be personally delivered to the founder of Halos of Hope at the Stitches South event in Atlanta next month.
You can get more details about other ways you can help and where to send your completed hats at Crochetville's blog here.
