Congratulations again to Carol, who won my first giveaway. I hope she makes lots of marvelous things using her new book! And now for my second little contest in honor of Crochet Month, I have another great book for you:
Double-ended hook crochet, also called Crochenit or Cro-hooking, is worked similarly to Tunisian crochet. The primary difference is that in Tunisian you never turn your work, whereas in Double-ended hook crochet you turn the work after some rows. This book has great instructions for how to do the technique, and beautiful color photos along with the stitch patterns. If you've not done Crochenit before, what better time than Crochet Month to learn something new?
(If you would are my winner and would really prefer a knitting book, I still have Top Notch Knits available for you to choose.)
Along with the book I am offering up some lovely yarn this time:
Isn't it pretty? The colors really put me in the mood for SPRING! The top yarn is Natura 100% Super Cotton worsted weight in lovely Orchid, a total of 7.5 oz, otherwise known as 210 g for those of you metric folks. Oh, and I have absolutely no idea what "Super Cotton" means and what distinguishes it from ordinary, mild-mannered cotton. Maybe it has a cape:
Sorry, I digress--I just love that movie! Anyway, back to the yarn. The other yarn is Patons Cotton DK in "Mad Magenta", 5.25 oz (150 g). It makes no claims of super powers, but you could make something super-pretty with it!
So--the giveaway! Same routine as before, just leave a comment on this post to be entered, and if you are a follower of the blog please mention that to get a second entry. That's it, easy as falling off a log! But don't do that, the water is realllly cold this time of year. Oh, I'll do the drawing at 5 pm next Sunday, March 20th. Good luck and happy crocheting!
