February Giveaway

I know I say this every month, but I'm gonna say it again. It's that time again. My favorite time of the month...giveaway time. This month I am giving away a Goodie Basket.


I love this basket. It is made from 2 strands of super bulky weight yarn held together. This makes it very sturdy. It keeps its form and stands up well. I love using these baskets. If you're like me, you have more than one project going on at one time. I have yarn, buttons, hooks, etc lying around everywhere. This basket is not huge, but it's big enough for your hooks and balls of yarn or small projects. I like to keep one on the bookcase near the bed for night time crocheting.



I'm also including some of my favorite must haves. When I crochet I always keep a retractable tape measure close by. Checking gauge is so important, and I use one constantly. You'll also get some colorful buttons (see them in the top photo). I use them for eyes on my animal hats. I'm also throwing in some colorful pins for blocking or sewing. This is truly a goodie basket.


These are all the things that I love to use, and I thought it would be a great idea for a giveaway. The pattern is so easy...I'll write it out soon. I made this basket in two hours.

Just leave me a comment and I'll randomly choose a winner in about a week...next Sunday to be exact:D

Have a great weekend!

  8. This is a lovely gift! I use a brown bag to keep my yarn in. I usually work a few at a time . This would be perfect to move it around the house. I have been looking for a basket this size. Would like to see the pattern on this. And the buttons are so lovely for some crochet flowers I have. Good luck to all!

  17. I was just blessed by Pinterest! You are talented. I just started crocheting again to try and help battle depression. Crocheting, embroidery, and knitting can be so calming. I am amazed at the tutorials! I am going to make my little Princess the owl hat. This bag is awesome. If I dont win I am surely going to make one.....or ten.

  70. This is so cool, and such a great idea I'm like you said I have yarn everywhere this will be so cool to make to keep my projects together, but then again I'd need several :)

  74. Oh I love this little basket, I know my cat would lie in there and hide away from me and the world. I like the stiff look because then it means it is strong and carry heavy things in it.
    I've been making pink and orange cell phone covers ever since my niece loved her orange and pink heart one I made for her new phone. Angy scratched her Tracfone LG800G smart preapaid phone the other day and I thought let me rather crochet a cute pouch for it, even though the phone cost $50. My boyfriend now wants me to crochet a little jacket for his nook tablet as he crushed the screen of the last nook while packing it in his overly full suitcase before a trip. I can't believe how expensive the ipad, nook and cell phone covers are in the shops and all I pay is the price of a ball of wool. Crochet is such an amazing, satisfying and rewarding craft.

  75. I never thought about using two strands held together. I've been playing around to make my own without a pattern and it's a little floppy. I'll have to try that. Thanks! Cool giveaway :)

  77. I just love this idea and would love to have the pattern for my nieces' baby showers. I can think of so many uses in a nursery. Thanks!
