Super Stitches Crochet Book Giveaway


Too many books! I have a lot of books and sometimes they produce offspring. So, I found myself with two copies of Super Stitches Crochet: Essential Techniques Plus a Dictionary of More Than 180 Stitch Patterns

This stitchionary includes more than 180 stitch patterns and some (not all) even have stitch diagrams. Although most of these patterns and motifs can be found in more complete guides like the Harmony guides, I like how the colorful, glossy photographs highlight the stitch patterns. The larger photographs show more detail than the Harmony guides giving you a better idea of what the pattern will look like.

To win simply leave a comment (the funnier, the better) by 3 pm Pacific on Tuesday, June 17th. I will pick the winner by random number generator.

This contest is sponsored by the Holetz Family Destash Project, join us and put your home on a diet.

My daughter has decided to call her bum "poo poo"...she has been learning the basic body parts, like head, nose, eyes, hand, foot, etc. I guess "poo poo" is a logical word. What makes it funny is today when she decided to go around pointing at people's "poo poos"...funny, but embarrassing.

Am I supersticious? Or do I just need a Super Stitch book?

My four year old told me yesterday (while I was nursing the baby), "When I take a wife, she's gonna milk my babies too!"

Some jokes my son came up with recently:

Did you here about the kid who had heart problems?
He never fell in love.

What did the mouse say to the snake?
Get me out of here.

Julie said...

You guys are funny! And the ones who couldn't get funny first thing in the morning, I completely understand. I'm not funny until after lunch.

I think one of the reasons I like to do giveaways is because it gets people to delurk and I find new blogs I want to read. Thank you!

A stitcher who works with a hook
Found out she has too many books.
Is such a thing possible? I disagree.
I guess you could always just send it to me...

My Husband says I have a crochet/ knitting addiction and that it is becoming a problem.

Of course it is a problem! The problem is I can't afford both yarn and a house cleaner at the same time.

Looks like the house got the short straw!
