Hookin On Hump Day #80 – Link Party for Crochet and Knitting!

I promised an announcement last round, and here it is – Hookin On Hump Days is moving! Well, half of it is moving.

Sara from My Merry Messy Life started Hookin On Hump Days way back in 2012! (Check out one of the first ones ever HERE!) Then when she when she had her 3rd child, she brought me on as co-hostess. And now she’s moving on! She’s been a wonderful person to work with and I wish her only the best. My Merry Messy Life will continue to be a great resource for green living and crafting, but this is the last round that Sara will be involved with.

So she is passing the torch to me… and starting next round I’ll be sharing it with Kara from Petals to Picots! We’ll be going over the rules and working on a new logo, and making the party our own. And it’s going to be more yarn focused as well! So while it’s sad to see Sara go, I think great new things are in store for Hookin on Hump Day on Moogly and Petals to Picots! In the meantime, let’s get started with this round!

Introducing Knitted Mitts & Mittens: A Q&A and Giveaway!

Congratulations to Carrie B, winner of the Knitted Mitts & Mittens giveaway! :D Thank you so much to everyone who entered and spread the word! To purchase your own copy, see the links below the interview!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Knitted Mitts & Mittens: 25 Fun and Fashionable Designs for Fingerless Gloves, Mittens, and Wrist Warmers is a new knitting pattern book just out, by Amy Gunderson. And while you might think it’s an odd season to be thinking about mitts and mittens (unless you’re in the Southern Hemisphere) – let me tell you, they’re the perfect project for the warmer months! Small and light, they keep the yarn up off your lap, and you’ll be so far ahead of the game come the holidays. Plus, if you knit as slow as I do, you can use the extra time. ;) So today, I get to give away a copy of this fab book to one lucky winner in the US! But first, let’s learn about the book and the author.

Knitted Mitts & Mittens - read the interview, and enter to win the book! Giveaway is US only, and ends 4/15/14 at 12am Central US Time.
