"Books and Hooks" Giveaway!

It's time for my final giveaway to celebrate National Crochet Month. And actually it's a double giveaway--I will select two winners this time around! Here are the prizes:

Book #1, "Crochet For Today"



Lots of nice patterns--afghans, baby things, sweaters and more.

And Book #2, "Geometrics" by Ruthie Marks.



This book has some amazing projects--I really love the square tote bag on the back cover! And of course the star afghan on the front is a very popular pattern.

The first winner I pick will get book #1, and the second winner will get book #2. And as pictured with the books, each winner will also get a brand new size Q plastic crochet hook! Somehow I ended up with FOUR of these in my collection, so I'm sharing my overabundance with my my lucky blog readers.

Entering is easy! Just leave me a comment on this post saying you would like to be entered, and also let me know if you are a follower of my blog, that will get you a second entry. I'm going to run this contest through April 3rd, a week from Sunday. Entries have to be in by 5 pm eastern (US) time on the 3rd.

And one more announcement--March 28th to April 3rd is the 2nd Annual Knitting & Crochet Blog Week! (Or the Crochet and Knitting Blog Week as some of us prefer to call it.)  It's going to be very cool, there is a suggested topic for each day of the week, and hundreds of folks will be blogging as part of the fun. You can go here to read all about it and sign up to join in with your own blog.

Happy crocheting!

I am very new to crochet and loving the different techniques like slip stitch and Tunisian methods.
I do not follow blogs but managed to find my way here twice.
