Announcing Crocheted Afghans Book Giveaway Recipient
I got back from a mini-vacation just in time to catch this cold weather and a big storm. The power went out for a while, but thankfully I had firewood and candles. In spite of all that, I’m feeling refreshed and ready to celebrate NatCroMo.
First, I want to thank everyone who left comments about your favorite yarns to use for crocheting (and knitting) afghans. I’m excited to have lots of new yarns to test. And finally I want to announce who is going to receive a copy of Craft Tree: Crocheted Afghans: A collection of 10 of popular crocheted afghans patterns.
The random number generator selected 14. Congratulations to GAM:
“GAM,” I will be contacting you to get your information to mail you the book. If you read this before then, please send me your info. Again, CONGRATS! and ENJOY!

Craft Tree: Crocheted Afghans: A collection of 10 of popular crocheted afghans patterns – GIVEAWAY!
When I crochet blankets, afghans, and throws, I always seem to run back to my old faithful acrylic yarns. I like them because they are inexpensive and can go in the washer and dryer.
I want to try some new yarns for some upcoming projects, and I want to know what you all are using for your projects. So tell me what yarns do you all like to use when you make your crochet blankets, afghans, and throws? I need some new ideas!
I have two designs featured in Interweave’s Craft Tree: Crocheted Afghans – Seaside Throw and Mulled Spices Afghan, and I am giving away a copy of this paperback book. Please leave me a comment and tell me what is your favorite yarn to use to crochet your blankets, afghans, and throws by February 28, 2013. On March 1, I will use a random number generator to select which commenter will receive the book.
I am excited to see what yarns you all are using so I can get some new choices.
R E M I N D E R: Leave your comments by February 28, 2013.
