In honor of National Craft (or Crochet) Month, I’m giving away this DVD (a $19.99 value).  It’s a wonderful way to learn to knit or crochet – like having a great teacher right at your elbow.  It’s 3.5 hours of beginning and intermediate knitting, crochet, and felting, and includes a Sock Workshop (knitted).  This would be great for a beginner or make a nice addition to anyone’s crafting library.

If you want to win this DVD, you’ll have to enter my contest.  Here’s how it goes.

Send me a link to your favorite online project (or one you’ve made and uploaded a picture of) that COMBINES CROCHET WITH ANOTHER ART/CRAFT.  Maybe it’s a knitted bonnet with crochet edging.  Maybe it’s a denim jacket with beading and crochet embellishments.  Maybe it’s a collage created with oil paints and doilies.

I’m open-minded when it comes to crafting.  A hint here is that a project that included recycled or repurposed items will have the inside track.  I LOVE to see how crafters make something beautiful, useful, or just down right interesting out of something from the trash bin or from the curbside.

So, head online and do some searching or craft away and upload a picture to Flikr or to your blog, or some other online venue (that doesn’t require me to join), and send me a link to it.

The contest is open from now through Tuesday, March 31, 2009.

You must send the link to this email address:


BE SURE TO PUT ‘CROCHET CONTEST’ IN THE SUBJECT LINE, PLEASE!  I will respond briefly to each entry so you know that I have received it.

Be sure to include your name, your email address, the LINK, and a brief (100 words or less) description of the project explaining what CRAFT in addition to CROCHET is included in the project, and a clear indication of who created the project so that proper credit can be given.  Obviously a great photograph will be helpful.

The contest is open to anyone, anywhere.  I am the sole judge and I have my preferences – that’s just the way it is.  I will announce the winner of the contest on this blog on Friday, April 3, 2009.  You may enter as many times as you’d like but each entry must be submitted separately.  Feel free to forward this information to anyone on the internet – or elsewhere – to have them enter the contest.

Questions?  Email me and I’ll respond as quickly as soon as I read your email.

    How do you find crochet along patterns? Sometimes I want to do the crochet along when I have the time and then I would fall behind and probley be the last one but still would be fun.
