Knitting and Sewing – Three Things and a CONTEST!

Three things you might be interested in:

1. Happy Honeymoon to Patti, who is offering all of her patterns at no charge between March 14-21 to celebrate. There are some really cute ones. Pop over and pick a few!

2. Miniature knitting jerseys wanted for the Tour de France! I think I like the yarnbombed bike idea better, but curious to see what they do with the jerseys.

3. How to sew a fabric lining into a handknit or crocheted bag. (And hey – we have the yarn and we have the fabric for you!)

Three ways to think outside the knitting and crocheting box:

1. A clock that knits as it ticks.

2. Taking knitting-in-a-rocking-chair to a whole new level.

3. A crochet yarn-bombing that goes to massive lengths. What a colorful sight!

Three things that I’m just not sure about.

1. Over-sized knitted stools. Not sure how comfortable those would be around the house.

2. A scarf that just might swallow you whole.

3. Knitted chicken jumpers. Although they’re pretty cute.

Three easy-to-sew project holders:

1. Drawstring project bag.

2. Zippered box bag.

3. Open-top yarn or accessory holder.

Three famous knitters:

1. Lucy (knitting herself some stripey socks).

2. Jack Bauer (but I think he only knits gun cozies).

3. Sam the Squirrel (he needs reading glasses. I can relate.)

Three other cute sewing projects I have put on my to-make list:

1. An easy way to dress up store-bought towels and washcloths. Make sure you prewash both the towels and the fabric before sewing.

2. Purse organizer, knitting accessory organizer, car organizer – limitless uses.

3. Low maintenance kittens. No vet bills, no litter boxes, no meowing in the middle of the night.

Three people who have won something:

1. Winner of the Fourth Quarter Challenge drawing (for a $25 Loopy credit): Gretchen from AZ who made the Gaptastic Cowl out of Shalimar Missy Bulky.

2. Winner of the First Quarter Challenge drawing (for a $25 Loopy credit): Cammy from NY who made the Racing Raindrops Scarf out of Shalimar Breathless.

3. Β Winner of today’s blog contest: YOU? (Well, one of you!) Leave a comment below and we’ll draw a name next week to win a $25 Loopy credit!
