What a treat! I want to win this great giveaway because it's a bit of crochet heaven - and I need a little pampering! Thank you

Hawthorn said...

Wow - how generous! Thank you for hosting this giveaway and congratulations on 1000 followers

Fiona Skye said...

I would love to win this contest because I really am a poor college student who is just setting off on my crochet journey. The patterns for your hats are lovely and I'd love to have hooks in a wide range of sizes (currently I only have a G, H, and N), and free yarn? Yes, please!

I liked you on Facebook; I've been following you on Twitter for a while now (@HookNYarn2012); I'm following you on Pinterest and Google+ now, too. Also, I have you listed on my blog and see your most recent update almost instantly! (Does that count as an entry? ;)

Hawthorn said...

Just realised I'd not let you know that I'd also 'liked' your facebook page x

Marinasognaecrea said...

Ciao, I would like to win simply because I'm a crochet addict.
Thank you for this giveaaaaaway!

Marinasognaecrea said...

Congratulations on 1000 followers, I'm one of them. I really love your blog.

melsdaisypatch said...

Congrats! I would love to win all of these goodies. Some of it I would keep and some would be a birthday present for my daughter. She wants her own set of hooks and crochet gadgets and this would be a great set of goodies to get her started.

Hola. Felicidades por los 1000 seguidores. Soy seguidora de tu blog desde hace tiempo y en Pinterest también, en twitter y facebook no puedo porque no estoy dada de alta.

Wooohoooo! Go Sarah, you're a rock star!!! Okay, so my comment doesn't need to count as an entry (feel free to delete this comment after you lovingly read it and print it out and paste it in your diary) because let's be honest, I've got way too much yarn and too many hooks already and someone who doesn't have a crazy stash should probably win this one . . . but anyway, I just wanted to congratulate you on being dang awesome and having 1000 followers who looooooooooove and look forward to your posts! Yay!

Gina P. said...

Sarah--congratulations on this milestone!!! Awesome!!! I would love to win the prizes, any of them. I love crochet and am hoping to start working with my Mom to teach her how to do it as she has been enjoying all the stuff I've been making. I have been an active follower of your blog for a while now and I just "liked" your facebook page. I love your patterns as I have a few in my library and would just love to add to my favorites of your creations. Thank you so much for hosting this giveaway..you are so super sweet and we are lucky to have your blog! You can find me in Ravelry as knitbymoonbeams.
Thank you so much for everything you've done for us! Gina

Heather said...

Congratulations on hitting such a big milestone! I would like to win for a couple of reasons: the grand prize would make an awesome surprise for a friend I have offered to teach to crochet, and the "runner-up" prize would be an amazing little luxury for myself. I've wanted several of your hat patterns for ages!
