Yesterday wrapped up the 12th day of the big 12 Days of Crochet Christmas giveaway. I’ll be tallying up all of the points soon and announcing all of the daily winners plus the three winners who had the most entries and get signed copies of Crochet Saved My Life. Before that happens, I just have to give another really huge thanks to the sponsors who donated their items to help me make this great giveaway happen.
Here they are again, ladies and gentlemen; let them take a bow!
Debi of Hooks and Yarns
Debi of Dly’s Hooks and Yarns is always making great crochet items, including her own patterns, and sharing them with us on her blog. She donated two gently used crochet books to this giveaway and I bet the winner is going to be happy to have them!
Lauren Fraser of 2nd Look Vintage
Lauren has an Etsy store called 2nd Look Vintage where she sells very special vintage knit and crochet patterns. She has taken her mom’s vintage pattern collection, scanned the patterns and enhanced/colorized them to make them easier to read and work from while still retaining the vintage feel. Lauren has donated some terrific pattern booklets to this giveaway. Visit Lauren on Facebook.
Birgit of By Number 19
Birgit is a multi-craftual fiber enthusiast and crochet designer who blogs at By Number 19. She shares many free crochet patterns on her blog. Birgit has donated some beautiful cotton yarn to this giveaway and shared a link to a free crochet pattern that the yarn can be used for if the winner so desires.
TracyAnn of Crochet Happy
TracyAnn is the mastermind behind Crochet Happy, a website where she aggregates all sorts of information for crochet lovers. She generously donated more than five dozen different gently used crochet hooks, most in like-new condition. Check out her blog and Facebook page to learn more about her.
Mel’s Daisy Patch is a blog as well as an Etsy shop filled with crochet patterns. Creator Melissa Graham learned to crochet in 2007 after losing her mother and greatly enjoys crocheting for others as well as creating original patterns for people to be inspired by. She kindly donated one winner’s choice pattern to this giveaway.
Anastacia is a crochet designer whose work I’ve featured on this blog before. I particularly love her crochet shawls but she does a variety of different patterns. Anastacia generously donated ten patterns to this giveaway, which three lucky winners will be receiving shortly.
Marinke of A Creative Being
Marinke (@winkieflash) is a crochet designer who aims to inspire others by sharing her work, craft and peeks into her life. She donated two terrific patterns to this crochet giveaway. Marinke blogs at A Creative Being and you may know about her also from the touching story she shared in my book Crochet Saved My Life. Find her on Facebook and Ravelry.
Laurinda Reddig of ReCrochetions (who also shared her story in Crochet Saved My Life) has been making a splash in the crochet scene this year, winning awards at CGOA and getting her designs published in crochet magazines. She also succeeded in completing her first self-published pattern book and donated a copy to this giveaway.
Jocelyn Sass of Cute Crochet
Too Cute Crochet specializes in easy crochet accessory patterns for baby, children & women designed by Jocelyn Sass. Jocelyn has been a crochet designer for more than 20 years. Jocelyn also sells crochet home decor and doll patterns in her Cute Crochet Etsy Shop and recently launched Jocelyn Designs Shop. Jocelyn donated her patterns from all shops to this giveaway.
I love the Crochet Kitten blog, a blog rich in tutorials and free patterns. Some things are worth paying for, though, and Crochet Kitten also has great patterns for sale in her Ravelry shop. She describes her patterns as “crochet patterns that mix style with adorkability and just a hint of silliness”. Crochet Kitten donated $30 worth of patterns to this giveaway. Note that this sponsor is also offering a 10% discount off of all crochet patterns to my readers this month. Just use tjhe code Concup12 when checking out at CrochetKitten’s Ravelry Shop. Get it while it lasts!!
Thank you also to all of the amazing readers who entered to win this year’s prizes. I hope you are having a wonderful holiday season.
