10 Days of Thanksgiving Crochet Event

      No Comments on 10 Days of Thanksgiving Crochet Event

I love this time of year. The leaves falling on the ground, the crisp fall air, the smell of apples in the air. Far too often the season of Thanksgiving is overlooked. So, I am very excited to announce the 10 Days of Thanksgiving Crochet Event. Each day we will announce 4 patterns that will only be $1 each.

2017 Cancer Challenge Final Pledges

      3 Comments on 2017 Cancer Challenge Final Pledges
The 2017 Cancer Challenge began on October 1, 2017. Each day a crochet pattern designer sponsored the challenge by providing a free pattern in exchange for your pledge to make a hat. The hats made are suppose to be donated to someone going through cancer, or to your local cancer center.
I want to personally say Thank You to everyone who participated and made pledges this year. I know that each one of these hats will be made with love and many are being given in honor of a loved one. What a great way for us crocheters to touch others lives.

If you haven’t completed your pledges, don’t fret! You have until the end of 2017 to fulfill your pledges. I am still working on mine but plan on making my donation in time for Thanksgiving.

Darcy’s Crochet Creations is sponsoring today with the Sabrina’s Slouch.

2017 Cancer Challenge Day 29: The Firefly Hook

As we begin Day 29 of the Cancer Challenge, I am almost sad that we are nearing it’s end. However, I am excited to see our final numbers. We have had so many lovely designs, made with a variety of yarns and meet many new designers. And today, we continue with another amazing new designer!

Cancer Challenge Day 29: The Firefly Hook

A couple weeks ago, I was just perusing Raverly and come upon a fun design. So, I clicked on it and ended up browsing through an entire pattern shop I hadn’t heard of. I quickly fell in love with Abbey’s design style and had to ask her to join the challenge. I am so excited to share with you today, The Firefly Hook, and her amazing design she is going to contribute today, Franklin Street Beanie.

  Cancer Challenge

The Franklin Street Beanie is a classic slouch design that is eye catching with the textures. Reading straight from the description:

This beanie is a true celebration of the warmth and comfort of Maria’s Cafe and the diverse culture alive around Franklin Street.

I not only want to make this beanie, but I want to visit the Cafe on Franklin Street! The beanie looks to be soft and warm, can be made for men or women and will be an amazing contribution to your donation box.

Cancer Challenge

Are you ready to make your pledge? All you have to do to pledge, is crochet one hat for a cancer patient or survivor using this pattern.  If you are willing to make that pledge you can get the Franklin Street Beanie pattern for free.

This offer is only good for 48 hours (ends October 30, 2017 at midnight). Just use the code “2017CancerChallenge” at checkout.

Your download is your pledge.

A fabulous start to the weekend as Saturday begins! I’ll be spending the last Saturday of baseball season at the ball fields, after game awards, Halloween costume prep and then I finally will get some crochet time. My goal is to get 2 more hats done for the cancer challenge this weekend. I hope your pledges are coming along nicely too.

 Cancer Challenge Day 28: Sweet Potato Crochet Creations

For day 28 of the Cancer Challenge, we have another long time contributor, Sweet Potato Crochet Creations. She designed a brand new hat release for us today and it is so darling. I love the Rosemary Beanie with the darling flowers attached to the side of the hat. Or, leave the flowers off for a masculine look.

The Rosemary Beanie comes in sizes for: toddler, child and adult. Made in a worsted weight yarn the hat will work up quick and keep you warm. The textured stripes make this hat appeal to the eye and creates a nice design.
