mystery giveaway


Here’s what I wanted to show you yesterday! My totes that I had printed arrived late yesterday. I had planned for them to be delivered in time for the Show, but alas they arrived a day after, not to worry! So far in production we have the YARN tote and the GRANNY SQUARES tote. One to hold all your yarn and one to hold granny squares on the go. They’re nice and sturdy, definitely not made from flimsy thin fabric like some I’ve seen, I’m really happy with the way they turned out.

Now time for the giveaway as promised! If you’d like to receive a new, fresh off the press YARN tote filled with an assortment of colourful yarn, both 100% wool and 100% acrylic then all you have to do to enter is leave a comment, it’s as simple as that!

And yes! this giveaway is open to everyone, whether you’re living in Australia, America, Canada or the UK, where ever you are if you’re name gets pulled from the hat then I will have that tote filled with yarn shipped directly to you! A name will be randomly selected on Friday night, the 26th of February!

  3. Hi Sarah,
    I found your homepage a few weeks ago and I can not stop crocheting since that day. You gave me so many ideas what to crochet – wonderful! You are such an inspiring person and so full of energy.

    It is nice to hear that the show was successful for you. As I could see on your pics yesterday it was also a very inspiring atmosphere. I love this coloreful quilts and tried to stitch one by myself in the past – but it doesn’t worked out like it should. Maybe I need to give it a second change some day.

    I whish you some quiet days now to catch for new energy.

  4. WooHoo – I love your blog. Filled with inspiration, tutorials and lots of nice colours. I just love colours.
    Have just started a blanket and used your advice for a nice granny square. Thank you so much for this nice inspiration.

  5. I discovered your site a few weeks ago – have already started one of your “square in a square” blanket – lots of great ideas.

  6. Oh my! What a give away! All that fab yarny goodness in one lovely bag… :o)

    Glad the show went well for you

Thanks for sharing, and definately include me in your name draw.

  26. Hi Sarah…i always look forward to getting the rss updates to your blog in my email…you have rekindled my passion for crocheting…although with a 3 month old, its a bit harder to find time to start, let alone finish, a project…I was inspired by your hawaiian flowers motif sometime back and created a lovely blanket for my bub…which always attracts attention when we use it to take bubs out for walks in his push chair.

  27. Hello Sarah

    Love your blog and your work with all the lovely colours.
    Would love to win a tote filled with yarn πŸ™‚

    Regards Lone

  28. Sarah, I came across your blog recently and have really enjoyed following. My daughter got a pair of crochet wrist warmers for Christmas from me so I could easily be persuaded to take up crochet with a bag of goodies like that. Ros

  30. Pick me! Pick me! I love your blog and your work. Your a great inspiration and I quite often find myself gazing at your flickriver and patterns.. normally when I should be doing other things!

    I love reading your blog and am so very pleased that all your hard work and preparation for the show was worth it.

    I am always inspired by your enthusiasm and ability to create very different patterns.
    Hopefully I will be ordering a few of your patterns in the very near future.
    I did the mystery advent calendar Xmas Tree and loved it and have done several things in the granny square pattern.

  218. Hello Sarah,
    I loved your account of the show with gorgeous photos, felt as though I’d had a little stroll around it myself …

    The best part was the gorgeous story about your Nan teaching you how to make a rose (she must be so proud of you) and the “driving photo” – I too had a wonderful (boy) driver take me to and from my first market at the weekend, and assemble the canopy and get me a cup of tea – it’s so heartwarming …
    (and totally agree with you about bland quilts, I seem to need freshness and light and white!)

    Hope you can have a peaceful day with a little personal crochet time … take care, Barbara

  219. Hello from Indiana. You’ve inspired me to make a crochet granny square pillow for my rocker and I loved it so much, I made another one for my couch!. Lots of inspirational ideas. and the colors… word gorgeous!

  220. Hiya, I love and am inspired by your use of colour and shape.
    Keep up the great work!

  221. The yarn you use is always so colorful and bright! And who can’t use an extra yarn tote?! πŸ™‚

  222. Hey Sarah,

    I heard you had a great time at the expo! Wish I could have been there to meet you, so I will just have to wait for your next show!
    The new totes are adorable and very ‘you’, great job!

    Kind regards,

    Never mind – wanted to mention that I loved the look of your stall and even checked where you were (was it Newcastle?) as I was going to pop in and say hi.

    Might have to wait till you come to Sydney…..

  233. I love your color combinations and your work is so cool! It makes me happy to look through your site with all the bright colors on these grey gloomy days.

  234. You have totally inspired me to take up crocheting again with your incredible colur combinations. I love the Biggan yarn range and have knitted extensively with them and after downloading one of your patterns books am looking forwarding to crocheting with them.

    Keeping my fingers crossed for the bag of yarn….

  235. The bags look great ! I have only just recently cracked the Granny Square code and would love a bag of yarn to keep me going πŸ™‚

  236. I am a newby to your site too. I just love the way you have made crochet into something so modern and gorgeous. I love your use of colours and your enthusiasm for it all. Thank you for inspiring me….

  238. I check your site at least twice a day. I ran across it about a year ago and love it. Love the beautiful creations and am always amazed at the beautiful colors. Your work is to perfection.

  239. (second attempt to post, like many of my crochet projects, my first is a UFO somewhere in digital land) I am attempting to organize my craft stash. One of the ways is to put UFOs into separate totes complete with all supplies and pattern so I can grab a tote and work without having to find everything. Obviously I would need more totes to do this. I even have a large number of squares: granny, hexagon, misc. They would be perfect in a properly named tote. Thanks for your postings.

  240. What a wonderful giveaway – love your stuff!!!!! I’m crossing my fingers and toes and hoping my karma is good!!!

  310. Hello Sarah,
    I think what you do to inspire crafting is awesome! Keep up the good work.

  311. OOOoohhh, let me at it please!! I just cannot believe how addictive crochet is. . . absolutely hooked (no pun intended) . . . except after an ‘episode’ I’m seeing colourful stitches when I close my eyes!

  312. Hi Sarah,
    464 comments! So i thought I’d be the 465th and throw my name into the hat too. Your crochet patterns are so brilliant, I love visiting to see what new delights you’ve created. Best wishes from snowy Scotland x

  313. I just found about your page a few days ago and I love it. It’s really inspiring!
    Best regards from Slovenia!

  314. What a great giveaway. I’d love one of those totes so please count me in!!

  315. Hi Sarah. WOW!! You have been a busy bunny these last few weeks. Your stall looked amazing at the CraftExpo show – hope you did really well. Just wanted to pop by and say that you saved me from an embarrasing Valentine’s Day. Unfortunately on the run up to the day I was ill in bed and had no chance to buy my wonderful hubby a card or pressie. But you saved me!! A recent Hip to Hook had a pattern for a little heart – do you know the one I mean? So in a moment of semi-clarity (dosed up to the eyeballs with cold & flu drugs) I found hook, red yarn and a little energy to crochet up a heart. I’ve never ever done Triple Trebles or Double Trebles before, but it was sooooo easy thanks to your excellent instructions. When finished I stuck it onto a plain white card blank and it looked AMAZING (even though I say so myself). Simple, but beautiful. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU. You saved the day. My husband loved the card and so do I. Take Care. Love Sam Terry xx

  316. Well no wonder you have had so many comments. What a wonderful giveaway! Some seriously wonderful stuff can be created with all that delicious yarn.

  317. Ohhh, I love your new totes, espically the granny square one, love the colors.
    I sure enjoy your blog.

  318. Wow…Thanks for this wonderful opportunity for this give a way! Yes…I would love to receive a package of wonderful=ness from you! You are truly inspiring and I am grateful for finding you online! Thank you for your creative-ness!!

  325. Hi Sarah

    I found your blog when seeking a way to crochet squares together without a ridge. I loved your tutorial. Also this all came along right in time – as I recently needed surgery and crochet in beautiful colours and soft yearn is THE perfect occupation for recovery.

    Tote bags are a wonderful idea.
    Thanks for bringing a little more colour and inspiration to me.

  335. Wow! What an incredible giveaway! Thanks for the chance to enter!

  336. Just found your blog, sooooo inspired now. Love your use of colour, putting a new twist on crochet is fantastic and being an Aussie is even better.

  337. Hi Sarah

    Have just learnt of your site this morning at the local craft shop. I have been a fan of crochet since I was very young. My Gran taught me, she was a left hander as I am. My Mum couldn’t find someone to teach me to knit! I knit right handed and only well enough teach my three daughters to purl, plain, cast on and off, they are all right handed! Whereas I crochet granny square rugs, edges on doyleys and even crocheted edges on white linen hankies, the hankies were something my Gran used to do to give away as gifts. When she passed away I was lucky to to be given her craft things. Am about to start crocheting for the ‘knit one save one’ Survive to Five campaign for the Save the Children and they are asking that wool is used as it is more fire retardant than acrylic so I would love to go in the draw for your tote bag.
    I have just spent a lovely couple of hours looking over your site, fabulous!
