May Giveaway

It's really close to the end of the month, but still enough time for this month's giveaway.







Yes, I'm giving away another Chunky Crocheted Basket. I used Lion Brand Hometown USA in Portland Wine...this is the super bulky yarn. I used a little over 2 skeins and followed the pattern. Measurements are the same as the original basket. Click on the link above to see the details about the basket.

This purple was a mistake. I made this for someone who wanted blue or green. I don't know what I was thinking:D 

I'm half crazy as usual :) Life can be so overwhelming at times and my brain just doesn't function as it should all the time.

So I went out and bought more yarn in a turquoise shade of blue and decided to give this purple one away. 






For those of you who wanted the basket from the giveaway a few months ago, here you go. Just leave me a comment letting me know you want this one.

Next Saturday I'll randomly choose a winner.

Have a great weekend!

  30. The purple is amazing! I love this basket and would love to have it :) Of course it would have to be put to work holding something equally amazing, maybe my small bits of leftover yarn, of which I seem to have a ton!

  42. I love this! I tried to make one and it was difficult to use two strands with the smaller hook. I use mine for a onion basket! Hmmmm.... what to do with a purple one? I think coloring books and crayons for the great nieces and nephews that come to visit!

But, I would love to win this purple basket as that is the color I'm using to decorate my living room area and it would go nicely with my new furniture covers that I've ordered. Pleaseeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee can I win that beautiful basket? Pleaseeeeeeeeeeeeeee? Thank you for a chance at winning that basket and for your cool patterns that you are allowing us to use. You're a gem of a person. Thanks! Betty Radcliffe
