Holiday Giveaways





Good Morning Everyone,

I have some great news today. In keeping with the holiday season I am able to offer you two chances to win some special prizes.

If you go to http://craftside.typepad.com you will have a chance to win a copy of my new book, THE GRANNY SQUARE BOOK, plus many other chances to win other prizes.

I have also contributed to a book called SIMPLY CROCHET, which is being released in the next week or so. The book includes some small, one skein projects, up to a few larger projects, but none take more than 5 skeins of yarn. Some of the most well known designers in the crochet world have contributed to this book. Interweave has allowed us to give one E Book to one of our blog subscribers. My contest ends at midnight Dec 2, 2011, and I will notify the winner some time tomorrow on how to download your book. All you have to do is leave a comment on this post to be included in the drawing.

Below is a list of all contributing designers, check out their blog posts in the coming days.

Thanks for the chance to win this book! I have been waiting for it to be published to pick up a copy! I can't wait to see all of the projects and the idea of them all using 5 balls or less of yarn is so great! This will be helpful as I try to finish my Christmas gifting!!!

First thanks for posting all the links. What a nice giveaway!

I am building my crochet blog list and all of the wonderful bloggers are keeping me company as I try to complete holiday gifts.

I have your "Knit or Crochet" book and love it. I also just bought a copy of "One-piece Knits that Fit" on Amazon to read after the holidays.

And I thoroughly enjoyed your Free-Form class at Rhine beck.

Happy Holidays!
