Crochet Giveaway

As promised - I'm giving away some of our excess stuff. The first is an adorable crochet set - it's a book with 12 adorable patterns for little crocheted animals. The kit comes with everything you need to make the two of the little creatures: the fish and the beaver with the felt tail. Here's the description:

Pick up your hooks and get ready to stitch and stuff a collection of crocheted animal projects with loads of personality. From a pint-sized piglet to a sweet bear that conceals a hidden container. You'll learn to make twelve lovable creatures inspired by the popular art of amigurumi. Inside this clever kit is a book with more than 80 color photos that highlight essential techniques and individual steps in each pattern. Beginners and experience crafters alike will enjoy following these original and irresistibly cute patterns submitted by ten crochet artists from around the world.

I'll pull the winner on Saturday April 24th. Just leave a comment here and you're in the drawing.

  3. I am in the US, so I don't know if I would qualify for your giveaway, but my reason for visiting your blog is... two kids under the age of 3 and a big move to a foreign country, WOW! What a great story and experience, Enjoy!

  4. Hi - just discovered your blog recently and am really enjoying it! Whilst on holiday in Staffordshire we went to Chatsworth yesterday where I saw this book! On the drive home today, I was thinking I wish I'd bought it! Couldn't believe it when I saw it come up here!

  5. Hiya. My Mum-in-law was teaching my four and a half year old daughter to knit last week and she really enjoyed it. Think beginners Crochet would be great for them both!

  6. I'm not very good at this creative stuff but my sister loves to crochet. She used to crochet blankets for the pet rescue homes so am sure she'd love this as an activity for her and Wee Z to do!


Go ahead, make my day!
