Crochetology Giveaway:
Koigu Yarn

Last year I posted about my love of this koigu pink yarn.
Today I want to start the new year with a giveaway of another koigu skein,
this lovely blue.

From the Jimmy Bean Wool website:

 Koigu Premium Merino (KPM) Solid colors are pure hand painted beauty! Each dye lot is "painted" individually and then heat is applied to fix the dyes. Dye lots are rinsed and hung on rods to dry. Once dry the yarn is wound into 50g skeins, twisted and labeled.

*Please Note* Dyed by hand in small batches, no two dye lots are exactly the same. The beauty of hand-dyed yarns is that each hank is a unique work of art, so please be aware that there can be a variation in coloring, hue and saturation, even within the same dye batch.

Koigu has agreed to contribute a minimum of 5% of their gross profits from the sale of their Stitch Red product (1100) to the Foundation for the National Institutes of Health in support of The Heart Truth® and women's heart health education and research.

For a chance to win this lovely skein, simply leave a comment below and a winner 
will be randomly selected and announced on Wednesday January 15th 2014.

a peek inside Crochetology

These are a few things that I've been working on for a new project still pending.

It's a fusion of thread and fingering weight yarn, flowers, 
and a lovely garland-like crochet piece.

These were done with hand dyed merino yarn from 
one of my favorite Etsy yarn shops.

This garland of flowers was made with an acrylic baby yarn.
But it blends well with the rest of the pieces.

I am excited to announce that the winner of the MadelineTosh yarn is:

Hello March! and Happy National Crochet Month.
I am starting this month with a giveaway to celebrate this AWESOME month.
I have been working with a lovely collection of MadelineTosh yarns,
just stitching up a storm with this yarn.
It is a soft hand dyed and superwash merino wool.
Would make a great spring scarf or a light-weight summer top.

Night Bloom, Mollie Ringwald...yes like the actress... and Wicked.

To celebrate National Crochet Month and to share my love of this yarn, 
I am giving away the lovely Night Bloom skein to a lucky reader.

from the pages of:
Decorative Crochet Magazine

This is the first doily I ever made using a crochet cotton thread in bright yellow.
I made this doily in 2001 ( I think) from a pattern by designer Hiroko Furuya 
in the November 1999 issue of Decorative Crochet magazine.

Inspired by this design, today I am working on my first original doily pattern 
and will be sharing it as a FREE download soon.

The winner of last week's giveaway is:
