giveaway time!
Let's have a giveaway to perk things up around here!

Vickie Howell's fabulous new book Pop Goes Crochet arrived in my mail and what a treat it was to get this book! There are some super cute projects in here, my favs are the scarfs on page 51 & 83. I am a scarf-a-holic and if I knew how to crochet I would be whipping these up in no time!

oh oh me me!

i was looking through this book in the bookstore yesterday, but i was too broke to buy it! i'd love it, it looks fabulous!
This book looks really neat. I have had fun with crochet in the past. I made ponytale elastics for my daughters when they were little. And I actually made one afghan for my eldest daughter. Who knows, maybe with this book my other girls might get a little something too.
Thanks for doing the giveaway.
I'm just a beginner, but would love to have this book! :)
I would also love to have this book. You are so KEWL to do this.
My Grandmother taught me to crochet when I was 6 or 7 and then again when I was in college - I didn't get much practice as a kid. I have only made a couple of scarves but I have always loved it. I would love this book! Got my fingers crossed.
Sweet giveaway! I can't wait to check out this book.
Looks like a fun book! I know about four crochet stitches and all I've ever made are potholders and scarves. Maybe it's time for me to branch out ;-)

Thanks for the fun giveaway!
I don't crochet either, but wanted to say how nice of you to pass on the gift!
Oh, I'm a crocheter, Claudine! I'd love the book! :)

crochet certainly is having a revival! I have just been to a blog where they featured a gorgeous granny square afghan: all spring pastels and different sized blocks, I think I feel some croche coming on! It must be 30 years (yikes!) since I did any

You should check out Debbie Stoller's "Stitch 'N Bitch Crochet." It's a good resource guide. I refer to it and her knitting book all the time!

I'm more of a crocheter, though. Still trying to learn out to knit. :)

If I win this book, you will have to tell me what color scarf you want for this Fall! I'll just "POP" it off in the mail!

I learned to crochet when I was just a pup. I'm always looking for more interesting patterns to crochet and my birthday is May 29 so this would be a great birthday gift and would make this Gemini very happy! <3
You really should learn how to crochet, Claudine, what with all your spare time. :D I'd love to revisit this old standby hobby.
Yep - I do crochet but certainly could use a book since I need help. Thanks for thos chance to win. Also, I am so terribly sorry for your loss. Toby was the dog of my dreams. Know that he's in heaven, pain free and happy.

I learned to crochet with my Grandma when I was a kid. I forgot it all as an adult, but years (and years) later, I'm now learning again with my 9 year old daughter. This book would be great for both of us!
