Crochet & Giveaway

Yep, that's right, I'm hooking. I've been wanting to teach myself to crochet for awhile but was lacking the proper motivation. The answer? Join a crochet swap and then learn.

I've been experimenting with different yarns and patterns and I think I'm getting the hang of it.

Yarn: Dishcloth cotton
Hook: E, 3.5mm

The cotton's been a bit rough on my hands though so I decided to take a break and pick up some wool.

Big Blue Rav Web
Yarn: Unlabeled stash yarn
Hook: G, 4mm

I also made a purple Big Blue but I haven't taken any decent pictures yet.

Hey wait, didn't I say something about a giveaway?
Well in my enthusiasm and total nerdiness I accidentally bought 2 copies of Crobots. That's right, crochet robots. That's where you come in. Leave a comment before Friday April 17 at 5pm EST and I will randomly pick one winner to get my extra copy of the book.
