What do you love about crochet? Have you ever wanted to let the industry know what your favorite yarn is, or your favorite way to get a pattern, or who your favorite crochet instructor is? Right now, you can! All you need to do is VOTE!!!
The first voting opportunity is for Mary Beth Temple. She wants to learn about what we look for in patterns ... cost vs. quantity, pdf vs print and so forth. You can cast your vote HERE, and even opt to have your name added for a drawing where one lucky winner will receive one cone of Lion Brand LB Collection Wool Stainless Steel in your choice of the Dusty Blue or Wine colorway. I wouldn't wait on the voting -- she plans on announcing the winner on her Getting Loopy show sometime in March.
The second is Patons yarn company; they have a variety of quick surveys ... the most important, imho, is the one where they are inquiring: “Which do you prefer? Knit, crochet or both?” (refresh the page/revisit it later on if it doesn't pop up.)
The third, and the one that I am most humble and honored to be a nominee of, is the first-ever Crochet Liberation Front "Flamies Award" -- you can cast your votes for the Flamies 2009 Crochet Awards HERE. You can learn more about the Flamies, and the Crochet Liberation Front HERE. I have been nominated for best crochet instructor and best crochet blog for 2008 -- which again, I am truly most humble and honored! I raise my crochet hook in a salute of thanks for the nominations!
Now, what are you still doing here? Go, vote -- then come back when you're done. :)
