Have you visited Annie’s Craft Store’s new site yet?  I love features like Build-A-Kit, which makes it easy to grab everything I need for a project that catches my fancy.  The stitch guides are a great help too – it’s nice to have that resource at my fingertips.  Annie’s is proud of the new site too, with good reason, and they’re having a sale to celebrate!

From now until Jan 23rd, use the code NEWYARN at the Annie’s site and get 20% off any yarn purchase.   This is great, because we all know, even if you’re on a yarn diet, sale yarn doesn’t count!

  1. As much as I love crocheting toys for my nephew, as a knitter and crocheter the things I most like crocheting are afghans.

    Why?

    Two reasons: 1) I crochet much faster than I knit, and 2) there’s something especially lovely about crocheted lace.

  2. I actually haven’t found my “go to” project as I am always looking for something new to try. I have made a circular vest, but never a circular afghan so this pattern would be a fun project!

  3. My favorite project is making lace-edged handkerchiefs. Most of my latest crochet projects are snowflakes for holiday decorations.

  4. My favorite thing to crochet is hats. I make a lot of character hats for kids, and always use my leftovers to make hats and scarves for local needy children. Sometimes my leftovers go into afghans for those in nursing homes.

  5. I love crocheting afghans–there’s something so satisfying about making a great chevron pattern or puff stitch, and they seem to work up so quickly!

  6. I love to crochet shawls and cowls. One of my favorite pattern is Elise, a crochet shawl designed by a man. Easy , quick and beautiful.

  7. Love to crochet! My favorite?? That depends on what is happening! Have a favorite baby blanket for newborns; enjoy some afghans (nothing with pieces); doilies are gorgeous; hats / scarves /dishcloths are fast & portable. *sigh* so many patterns, so little time. . .

  8. I’ve just started learning to crochet and love it. Since I’m a newbie I’d have to say baby blankets are my favorite project so far, I’m on my first. lol. Thank you for the chance to win, which will definitely improve my skills.
