I Never Win Anything…

I never win anything…until now!


I could spend all day entering giveaways online, but I try to limit myself…I already spend way too much time each day surfing the internet.  But when I do see something that stands out, I allow myself to throw my name in, never expecting to win, but the excitement and potential of winning is fun enough.  A few weeks ago, one of my favorite blogs, CraftGossip, was giving away a copy of French Girl Knits, by Kristeen Griffin-Grimes…and I won it!


CraftGossipFirst, CraftGossip.  CraftGossip is another blog that highlights other crafting blogs, saves blog readers like myself tons of time, and picks great projects.  ( I admit I am a little partial…they’ve highlighted two of my projects, my Green Bead Soup Bracelet and my Hooded Scarf.)  I think the main reason I like CraftGossip is because they literally spotlight crafts from every medium you could ever possibly be interested in, from Polymer Clay to Needlepoint, from Green, Eco-friendly projects to Homemade Bath and Body Products.


French Girl KnitsSecond, French Girl Knits.  Where do I begin?  The projects in this book are absolutely stunning, and romantically feminine.  I’ve got my eye on one project in particular, the Bijou cropped cotton cardigan, but have a long list of projects in mind to give as Christmas gifts, especially the Simone flared-sleeve cowl sweater.  The neckline is fantastic.




Thank you, again CraftGossip!  Maybe my luck is changing!

    I love this post! I am new to knitting and Im already looking for future projects. I stumbled upon your post for the baby blanket and feel in love with it! My girlfriend is having a baby so it looks like this is going to be my gift. Hope I can manage to make it through it. Your pattern/directions seem pretty straight forward so hopefully mine will come out as nice. Thx again.

    Btw– Im book marking your page : )

      If you need any help with the baby blanket, just ask!
