I’ve enjoyed following Debi’s fabulous Sew Grateful week again this year – while being constantly thwarted in finding time to blog about it. So at last, on the tail-end of Sunday evening: a giveaway and a project! (And I know it should be something Sew Grateful, but I hope you’ll forgive a rather woolly contribution?)
As usual here at Diana & Me, I’m giving away a book:
You’d think the title is pretty self-explanatory, but there are also quite a few slipper patterns and a big section on baby booties: 30 different projects altogether plus a techniques section. This was a thoughtful gift from my mother-in-law last year, with one problem – I don’t knit. My grandmothers taught me as a joint effort (competition?) and I can still basically stocking-stitch, but… nah. (On the other hand, if this book was about crocheting socks, I’d have been all over it by now.) Any knitters out there interested? Leave a comment and I’ll announce the winner on Monday 18th February.
As for the project, well I’m still firmly in crochet mode:
I followed two free tutorials, one from Family Bugs Blogging for the basic hat and one for the bow-like detail at Vallieskids. Doesn’t the sparkly hairclip just finish it off? I’m thinking of trying a chunky black version with a dramatic brooch for a more grown-up look…
Happy Sew Grateful week! And thanks Debi!
