Hi Sarah. I follow your blog - visit it everyday practically & just love it. I love to crochet because you can do so much with it and you can pretty much take it anywhere.

Pacas said...

Hi, I started to crochet in the beginning of this year!! I'm loving your blog and would love to be the lucky winner :)

Frances via il*mostro said...

Wow, what a giveaway!!! Crocheting is one of those things that I've always wanted to do but feel pretty intimidated by mainly because the end results look so lovely and intricate! I'm working on getting over these silly barriers in my head so this would be right up my alley!! Of course i'm already a follower :)Good Luck to us all!!

Andria said...

That's a great give-away! I was just today looking up crochet classes, because I need some help learning! Knitting I can do, but when I even try to read a crochet pattern--road block. Thanks for sharing your great site.

Domestic Diva said...

I follow on gfc.

This would be a great way to introduce my little one to crochet.

I am most definitely a follower of your blog and check in often! I love so many things about crochet--keeping my hands busy, the creativity it inspires, and the challenge of trying something new! I'd love to win this set!

Rebecca said...

Hi! I am a follower of your blog and I love, love, love it!! I also love crocheting because it is so versatile (and forgiving) :)

I love crocheting and I am a follower.

I love making lacy things and afghans with crochet. I also knit. I just love all crafts.

Carlytron said...

I just learned how to crochet and I am loving it! It helps me de-stress from going to grad school.

Heidi said...

I just joined up to follow... what a beautiful Blog you have!
I crocheted a baby blanket for my firstborn son and it was the first thing I ever crocheted... and the only thing so far! I want very much to make one for my daughter but it's been so long I don't remember how to begin! Every time I see a pattern for baby stuff I have a yearning to make it... but don't have the skill! What an AWESOME giveaway!! I've seen the pattern for a purple butterfly blanket that I'm SO anxious to learn to make!

kbm1581 said...

I'm a brand new follower. I'm unfortunately not a crochet-er (yet!) but I would love to learn. My grandmother tried to teach me many years ago, but I never picked it up. I'd really love to learn to crochet something for her.

Jessie said...

Hi Sarah, I follow your blog and learned to crochet from my mom when I was really little. We would make blankets during conference weekend. But I have not crocheted in years and now that I'm having a baby I would love to get back into it!

I'm a follower & think this is an awesome giveaway! I haven't crocheted in a while but used to before I had kids! I would love to get into it again! I love trying new patterns too!

annemarie said...

I am a follower and love your blog. I have crocheted for forty years and love it dearly. I enjoy making tons of gifts and items for my home - you can always teach an old dog knew tricks though! Thanks for the giveaway - what fun new patterns would be and would love to replace some of my ancient crochet supplies!

Congrats! I love crocheting because I can make personal things to decorate my home or gifts when I couldn't otherwise afford to.

makisha said...

What a lovely giveaway!
I started teaching myself how to crochet this last year. I would love some extra help! And yes, I need a TON of help:)

Carrie said...

Oh, I must also enter this lovely giveaway! I'm a follower. Crochet is my obsession for about a year. Earlier I didn't know this is so relaxing and fun. And especially heart melting when my daughter wears my crochet stuff.

Lori said...

Hi! I saw you in maple bacon and beavertails...I am one of your newest bloggers and I love your blog. As for the giveaway...I have NO idea how to crochet, but I want to learn because I have seen so many friends and family make some truly beautiful things and I want to be able to also.

linda@arkademedia.com said...

Nice kit. I am so glad that younger people are crocheting. I have been for 40+ years. If my name is drawn, please draw again. Thanks for the give away.

Jill @ Just Dream, Jelly Bean! said...

Thanks for the giveaway! Yes I am a follower and yes/no I crochet! I was cleaning out my craft closet the other day and found a blanket I started to crochet for my daughter before she was born, 8 YEARS AGO! (I never finished it, but always said I would)...well 8 years later, I have forgotten the techniques! I think its time to relearn and finish that blanket once and for all!

kwhite118 said...

Reading blog after blog with so many cute items has me itching to learn the art of crochet. This little kit would be the perfect start to yet another crafting addiction!

Tasha Taylor Photography said...

I am a pretty new follower! I spent like 2 hours looking at your blog the other day! I LOVE it! You are SO talented! I kind of know how to crochet, but I would like to get A LOT better! This kit is a great idea!

Anne of Little Princess Pea said...

I am already a follower Sarah! I know how to crochet but need to kick it up a notch and learn how to make other things besides baby blankets! What a great giveaway!

ByBy said...

Hi!I'm a follower! I'm also rediscovering crocheting after almost 20 years!
You can see my first project http://bybyskingdom.blogspot.com/2011/03/little-darling-toddler-youth-crochet.html
Happy that I found your blog!

Lindy said...

I'm a follower! I taught myself a few years ago to crochet. Sometimes I don't think I know anything and then I finish a pattern and am still amazed. I would probably give this kit to my sister. (Once I read all the patterns). She has wanted to learn for a while.

Lori said...

I'm a new follower and love this blog.
And I love making crocheted dolls - they always are so damn cute! ^^

Cate said...

I am a new follower. I crochet, but I am not that great at it. All I can make are scarves. I can't do any of the fancy stuff either. I don't know how to read the patterns. The terms confuse me. This would be perfect for me since it has pictures in the books.

Michelle said...

I'm a follower. The only thing I've ever crocheted are baby hats--I would love to learn more!

Andrea said...

I'm already a follower - I'd love to learn how to crochet. I think it's a beautiful art!

Love your blog, too! I'm not exactly a beginner to crochet, but it literally saves my sanity every day because of my 4-hour daily commute on a train.

Krista said...

I'm a follower! I don't crochet, but I love learning new things. So I'm sure I'd be obsessed in no time.

M. Booth said...

SARAH! I love your blog, your etsy shop, AND you and your family! I think your color selection is my favorite part. I have been wanting to learn how to crochet forever. I'm graduating this semester, so I'll be needing a new hobby to fill my late night needs! Hopefully I'll be able to figure out eventually...

Katie @ EyeSpyDIY said...

I'm a follower. I do know how to crochet, I love that it is something I can do while watching tv or movies, that is actually why I learned to crochet because I had a hard time sitting still watching movies.

Pritz said...

I'm a follower =). I love to crochet, my Grandma taught me when I was little and it wasn't until a couple of years ago (thanks to long road trips) that I started doing it again. The projects included in this giveaway certainly will take me further than making scarves, lol. thanks for the chance to win, good luck to all!

Melissa said...

Hi there,
I have been crocheting for just over 2 years and I don't think I could live without it!
Love your blog and everything you do here!

Sacred Quests said...

Hi

Just restarted crocheting after many years away from it. New tools always help with creative inspiration!

Blue's said...

Wish I had seen this when the giveaway was open. Anyway, I've started to learn crocheting now only. I became eager to learn crocheting by seeing the pins in pinterest.com and now am really crazy about it. I've got 2 hooks and some yarn from my cousins. But I don't have anyone to teach me, so I'm learning on my own from internet.

It's really nice to see blogs like yours which inspires beginners like me. Many people give tips and also provide free patterns in their blog which helps well.

Keep on with your blogging. It's really inspiring. Good luck :)

Blue's said...

And yes, I forgot to mention this. I'm also following your blog . It's very lovely :)
