First Friday Freebie


We are starting a brand new feature at Cute Crochet Chat called First Friday Freebie. On the First Friday of each month, we will be posting a different prize giveaway: crochet patterns, knit and crochet books and crochet related items! The contest will be open for 2 weeks following the day it is posted. Each month, you will be given a set of instructions to follow (usually commenting) in order to be eligible to receive the prize.
In honor of our first giveaway, because I just adore the felting/fulling technique, the winner will receive the book Knit It, Felt It published by DRG. The book has 176 pages and contains over 60 projects!
So, what do you have to do to win the book, Knit It, Felt It?
Leave a comment on this post and tell us if you have ever done a crochet or knit felted project before and what it was. Please feel free to tell us all about your projects!
If you have not tried felting yet, let us know what you would like to try for your first project. Please be sure to leave an email address so we can get in touch with you if you are the winner! If you do not wish to leave your email address in the comments section, post your comment about felting and then send your email address to: contest@cutecrochet.com
For this first contest, our winner will be chosen from a random drawing on July 17, 2009.
Good luck!
CONTEST NOW CLOSED. WINNER WILL BE ANNOUNCED SHORTLY. Thank you so everyone who participated!

Adorable Knit Soap


Being a crafter and needleworker most of my life, naturally I love all things related to sewing and crafting. So you can imagine how thrilled I was to come across these adorable knit soaps? Aren’t they the cutest things? I just love them!
They are from a company called Bramble Berry, who sells all kinds of soap making supplies. I believe you can purchase all the supplies you need to make the knit soaps right on the website. They have a great selection of soap making molds and products to choose from. Check them out. You might find yourself starting a new, fun hobby!

Special Olympics Scarf UPDATE!!

I was informed last week by Coats and Clark that the Knit and Crochet Scarf Project they sponsored had been an overwhelming success!
At that time, the World Games committee had received over 40,000 (yes, 40,000!) knit and crochet scarves from all over the world! Amazing, right?
Today, you can read an article posted on the Special Olympics World Games Website that states they have received over 60,000 knit and crochet scarves to date!! It is truly incredible!
Of course, WE always knew how GENEROUS crocheters and knitters are, right?
I can’t wait to actually see the atheletes wearing the scarves. The Games begin February 7 and run through February 13. Check you local television listing to see where in your area the Games are being broadcast.
