Knook Giveaway Winner!

Thanks to everyone who visited my blog last month during the Tour Through Crochet Country.  I enjoyed following along with Crochetville and visiting crochet blogs that I had never seen before.  It was really interesting to see that there is variety in what people are doing with crochet — lots of different techniques and career choices.

I especially want to thank everyone who left comments about what you did for NatCroMo on my blog the day it was featured during the tour.  I used the Random Number Generator to choose the recipient of the Knook Beginner Set – Medium Weight Yarn, and the number selected is:

Number 7Congrats to Janet, the seventh person to leave a comment!  Janet, please send me an email with your contact information so I can get this to you.

Also, for Janet and the other ten people who left comments, I am giving you a free pattern that is not available online and 15% off patterns in my Ravelry store.  Two new patterns are being added soon!  Contact me to get the discount code (code expires 5/5/13).

I am already thinking about what types of fun things I can add for NatCroMo 2014.  I already know I definitely want to do more giveaways.
