Today kicks off the very first day of the 12 days of crochet Christmas fun here on Crochet Concupiscence. I’m excited to get started so let’s dig in!

Today’s Prize: Crochet Hooks

There will be two randomly selected winners in today’s giveaway. Each will win a set of crochet hooks.

Winner #1 gets:

wooden crochet hooks Day 1 of 12 Days of Crochet Christmas: Win Some Crochet Hooks! (And Yarn)

light bamboo crochet hooks Day 1 of 12 Days of Crochet Christmas: Win Some Crochet Hooks! (And Yarn)

This is a set of twelve matching crochet hooks ranging in size from 3 mm through 10 mm. I believe that they are bamboo crochet hooks.

Winner #2 gets:

dark wooden crochet hooks Day 1 of 12 Days of Crochet Christmas: Win Some Crochet Hooks! (And Yarn)

more bamboo crochet hooks Day 1 of 12 Days of Crochet Christmas: Win Some Crochet Hooks! (And Yarn)

This is a set of 11 matching crochet hooks ranging in size from 3 mm to 9 mm. I also think these are bamboo.

And what good are crochet hooks without some yarn, right? So from my own stash I’ll be giving each of these winners one 65 gram ball of Paton’s silk bamboo yarn in the color stone gray.

Thanks to the Sponsor

These gently-used crochet hooks were generously donated by TracyAnn of Crochet Happy. She explains that the goal of this site is to be abright, inspired place on the net, just for us: Crocheters, Masters of Hook and String”. It is all crochet, all of the time, including even the ads on the site. Tracy says:

I started Crochet Happy out of a desire to find everything crocheters want in one central place on the internet. I was frustrated with spending 3 hours online every time I went searching for somethingthen wrestling with all of the broken links and websites that are no longer active. It was a mess. I decided I had discovered a need in our crochet community and decided to fill it.

The result is Crochet Happy which aggregates crochet information in one place and includes patterns, crochet hook reviews, blog and site recommendations, informational crochet articles, and various online tools like a stripe generator. You’ll also find articles and links to all types of crochet resources including yarn stuff, designer and artisan info and the other online crochet communities. Crochet Happy was one of the first sites to do this, started before sites like Ravelry and before blogs were common so it was a forerunner and aggregating crochet information into one go-to place and continues to serve as a place with a wealth of information.

Crochet Happy also has a blog and a Facebook page that are used more informally to share even more things that may interest crocheters.

Fun fact from Tracy:

I started crocheting in 1973 when I was 4 years old. It was my mother’s effort to keep me quiet. It worked! I made my first granny square that day and simply never stopped. I have worked, gone to college and raised four kids with two different husbands. Today I stay at home and Crochet Happy is my full-time job.
