Back in July, 2008, I wrote a less than glowing review of this book.  Since then, I’ve acquired another copy – shiny and new.  So, I’m gonna give it away.

The book is quite attractive.  You can read my review and learn more about the book.  It would make a nice gift for a beginning crocheter on your gift list.  Nice photos and schematics of basic crochet.

Here’s a link to my original post on this book, containing all the books particulars:

So, if you would like to receive my extra copy of this book, you need to enter this contest.

This time, I’m asking that you post a link to your favorite crochet blog in our Comments Section.  I’ll go through all those links and determine two things:

Which is a blog I haven’t seen before   AND/OR

Which is the best crochet blog.

So, get surfing and post your blog entry here.  ONE ENTRY PER PERSON PLEASE. Contest is open from today (12/8/0/) til Monday 12/15/08.  Winner will be announced 12/16/08 and book should be mailed in time for you to gift it or enjoy as a gift for yourself!!

    I’m not sure if this blog has been featured before, but it certainly is a little different than some may be used to. It’s a lot of fun – check it out:

    This site is where I go to get all the ideas I used to help the people in Iowa after the floods feel like they were home again.

    This is not a crochet-only website, but does have some lovely crochet projects:

    This one doesn’t have a lot of crochet patterns, but it has a few really nice ones, good recipes, and gorgeous pictures of England.

    As a beginning crocheter, I think “Learn to Crochet” – is one of the best sites on the web. Of course, is a great site too! :)

    I just love this crochet site. Cheryl is easy to deal with and always ready to help with her patterns. She has patterns for dolls, and babies. Her patterns are easy to follow and she is prompt in emailing them to you. I know when I need a nice pattern for a baby shower or to outfit my reborn doll that Cheryl’s is the place to go.

    I would like to enter your Book Give-away contest.
    This is one of my favorite Blogs for questions and answers.
    I do have another one but her transfer from webpage to blog is not even part of her tips and techniques.
    I’m not sure if this is a blog you’ve seen before, but I use this blog when I need info.
    thanks for having this Book give-away.

    I used to love reading this blog and it’s usually the first one I read. It inspired me to go back to crocheting; however, she hasn’t blogged since August 2008:

    My next favorite is this blog because she blogs everyday and her color choices are awesome:

  14. Mel on December 10, 2008 1:21 pm

    I like this blog. It is very good.

  15. Nancy on December 10, 2008 7:29 pm

    I think my most favorite blogsite would be Thata Pang… she is such an inspiration.. her site is Dynamic Crochet…Hope I did this right…if not.. oh well.. no biggie

    I’m not much of a blogger type person. I don’t have a blog or look at many blogs. The reason that I’m saying this blog is because this contest has allowed me to find some really good blogs. Most of the blogs that I’ve come across that say crochet or knit have just a little about crochet or knit & then a lot about family, vacations, & whatever else. I’m mostly a self taught crocheter & knitter.

    I like visiting Andrea’s blog. I don’t understand the language but her work is fun & her tutorial is really good.

    I am glad you asked – I looked up some sites new to me and this is my new favortie. I am anxious to look up the sites listed by others.

  19. Noreen on December 13, 2008 5:35 am

    This is one of my favorite sites to go to for yarns, patterns, inspiration. Mona is always helpful.

    I would like to be entered in the book giveaway. I have read the comments.

  21. Maru on December 14, 2008 6:40 pm

    It’s very hard to choose only one. I’m sure you (and your readers) already know them: she has some sewing, recycling and books too!

  22. Tresia on January 4, 2010 2:12 pm… definetly my favorite =)
