In just a short three and a half hours and the FREE Drawing will be closed. There are many, many entries and I think that's just wonderful. I'll be spending a good portion of tomorrow writing everyone's name on slips of paper and placing them in a bag. (Yes, of course a crocheted bag!! Is there any other kind?? LOL) Then I'll have my children each pick one name. Of these two names I will then have my children each pick a number from 0-10 ... who ever picks the number closest will have the winning person's name in their hand. The other name will be the "runner up" ... you know, in case I can't get ahold of the winner. (I just want to make this as fair as I possibly can!)
REMINDER: Any entries received after midnight (EASTERN time) tonight are void. So enter NOW!
Good Luck Everyone!!! J
What's fresh off my hook is the most delicious bag I've yet to design -- my hubby, my bosses, my students and my friends are all saying this. I haven't taken a picture of it yet; just looking for the right props I guess. I designed it for teaching in my classes but those that have seen this bag are insisting I sell the pattern. They want me to bypass publishers and publish it myself! So this means, of course that I have more homework to do.
I was over there at my CafePress store thinking maybe I should use their book option to create a book on all the bags I've already designed, and possibly include this new one I'm referencing. I'm currious if there is a desire for such a book. I would possibly include patterns for these items:
The question I really need to ponder is how should I provide the written patterns themselves. Should I write them in traditional publication style or in an easier format for beginner crocheters to try it? I'll have to give this more thought. While I do, I'd be interested in hearing how you'd like the crochet patterns you use to be written. You can share your thoughts here, or in your own journal/blog (just be sure to give me a link to visit).
OK, I'm off to crochet yet another and test my pattern ...
