Yay – I Won a Crochet Book from a Crochet Blog Giveaway!

Just wanted to share the good fun news that I won a crochet book that was offered in a terrific giveaway done in January by CraftGossip. The giveaway was a fun one. We were asked to find an afghan that closely resembles the name that has been given to the afghan. The post was inspired by a beautiful afghan that hadn’t been named very well.

For my entry, I chose a Peacock Afghan featured on Etsy. Doesn’t it look like a peacock?

As my prize, I’ve won a crochet book called Twinkie Chan’s Crochet Goodies for Fashion Foodies. I can’t wait to get this in the mail! I’ll share more about it with you after it arrives. Remember that Tuesdays are always crochet book review day around here. :)

UPDATE: Many, many people have contacted me to ask me where to find the crochet pattern for this afghan. The only time I’ve seen the afghan was in the Etsy store and that’s now not open anymore so I don’t know of any way to contact the seller. Several other bloggers, like The Crochet Dude, have followed up on trying to find the pattern. The best lead I’ve gotten is that it’s in a crochet pattern book called Afghan Enchantment which is often available used on Amazon. However, I have not personally confirmed whether or not that is where the pattern comes from.

  2. Congratulations! I entered that contest too, but your entry truly is the best! I don’t usually get around to entering contests but I really want to add that book to my collection :) I found out about the contest through Crochet Partners Yahoo group; I found out about your blog from BellaCrochet’s Facebook link (like you, I search out and read a lot of crochet info).

    Great blog! Since you started this year, I’ll have to wait until next year to nominate you for a CLF best blogger award. I’m looking forward to keeping up with your blog!

  4. I love this afghan – it’s lovely. I wondered which etsy shop you got it at? I looked and looked but can’t seem to find it. I’m also sharing your blog with my groups – they will love it. You have some lovely works of art as well a lot of great information! Thanks so much if you could tell me where that pattern is – I would love to create it for a few of my friends!

    • I really wish I had a good answer for you about where the peacock afghan came from and how to make it. I found it through a Google image search. It links to an Etsy store but when you try to click through you find out that the item is no longer on Etsy and so I can’t tell whose store it’s from. I have put out some requests for more info in the Etsy community so I’ll certainly let you know if I find out any more information!

  5. I have to repeat the others. Ann told me about your site too! I am very happy she did~ it is a good one :-) I will be back for sure… I have been trying to find that afghan too…looks like it would be very fun to make..nothing I can find either..I don’t give up easily though LOL~

  6. You are an angel – it’s such a unique afghan – thanks so much :) I hope you enjoy your Twinkie book :)

  7. I love the afghan! Where did you find the pattern? I’d love to make something like this!!!!

    • @Adoryble2 That’s a great question. I found the afghan online through Etsy but it’s no longer available there. The Crochet Dude asked around on his Facebook to find out where the pattern is and the best answer seems to be that it’s in Afghan Traditions, a 1996 book by Jennifer Christiansen Simcik. I ordered a copy of the book for myself to find out but I haven’t gotten it yet so I can’t confirm for sure.

  8. THank you @CrochetBlogger Just picked up the book at BN.com. Hopefully that pattern is included. The afghan would match my den perfectly!
