Contest and Pattern Giveaway!

Hey everyone! I’m having a contest. If you’ll look over to your left, there, you can see that my little dragon ticker has rolled to over 250,000 hits. (You can thank my dad for this, by the way – he pointed it out to me.) And there are prizes!
The winner will receive a copy of every pattern I sell. Second place will get a Toy Bundle, and the third place winner will receive my three accessory patterns (Newsboy, Shooting Starf, and Sweet Cocoa Cloche).

Interested? All you have to do to enter is leave a comment on this post containing a crochet-related poem you have composed. (Also make sure your contact info is accurate. Sometimes I can’t reply to comments because they’ve made a typo in their email.) You can enter as many times as you like, one poem per comment preferred. Contest closes October 31st, 11:59 pm CST.

I look forward to reading your entries!

    My crochet haiku.

    soothing to the soul
    crocheting is comforting
    my hooks give me peace


  2. Suzy says:

    Can I crochet?
    with a toddler on my lap?
    apperntly so
    With another toddler wanting to try her sweater on after every row?
    apperntly so.
    now that the little one is tugging the yarn?
    of course I can, hey he untangled it too.
    can I crochet?
    yes I can.

  3. Aimee says:

    My hook hand is terribly sore.
    I can’t even open a door.
    But once it has rest,
    (at hubby’s request)
    I’m sure I’ll be hookin’ once more!

  4. Tammi J Demecs says:

    With a string of yarn
    I’ll chain a charm
    And hook a magic ring

    With my hooks from clover
    I’ll make something over
    And shape it into reverie


  5. Holly says:

    Looks like the Haiku is already popular! Here is mine.

    Hook, yarn, and pattern
    My imagination runs
    Creating heirlooms

    This is a great contest. Thanks for having it.

  6. Holly says:

    And now a limerick.

    There once was a Happy Hooker from back East
    Who wrote a book that was a crochet pattern feast
    It taught me that knitting
    Isn’t the only thing you can do while sitting
    And now I’m a crochet hooking beast :-)

  7. Melissa Escovedo says:

    Wake in the morning to check the Pattern of the Day,
    Counting down the hours at work till lunch so I can crochet.
    With my project bag in tow, off to the break room I go!
    My hook in one hand and yarn in another;
    I’m at peace like no other.
    Talk of yarn, patterns, projects and more,
    My friend Esther and I are hookers…. Hardcore!

  8. meowy says:

    Yay, grats on all the visitors! :)

    Here’s my haiku crochet entry, yay

    I want to crochet
    All of those projects I see
    My hand is cramping

  9. Arachne says:

    My fledgling web of dreams,
    Looped ’round with coloured string,
    And despite the tugging fingers,
    Knotting and unwinding together,
    The threads beging to take their shape,
    In their own rambling way
    Merrily meandering toward the time
    When they will be (all clipped and tucked)
    No longer lonely strings,
    But the fiber of some brighter thing.

  10. Becca says:

    During a lecture on books,
    I spotted a woman with a hook.
    I asked her to teach me,
    But her reply was crochet-y,
    And her yarn gave me a funny look.

  11. Jackie says:

    This was written by my Dear Hubby-

    I Crochet Here
    I crochet there
    I’ll crochet almost anywhere

    With hooks of steel
    or hooks of wood
    I crochet bad
    I crochet good.

    Washcloth, facecloth,
    dishcloth, vest
    Sweater, shawl,
    and all the rest.

    Before I begin
    before I start
    I choose a pattern
    from the heart.

    I really hope
    you like this poem
    and send your patterns
    to my home.

    I’ll be grateful
    more than you know
    The patterns are for my wife.
    but my name’s Joe.

    Now my writing time’s
    at an end.
    and hopefully
    you’ll be my friend.

    Give my wife
    the things she needs
    and maybe she’ll
    be nice to me.

    dog hair
    my hair
    everywhere –
    in every stitch
    that I crochet
    on everything, I swear!

    (In my original poem crochet is spelled and pronounced differently. Rhymes more with stitch!)

  13. Jennifer says:

    The weather is again getting colder
    And hubby is one more year older
    Yet his blanket still sits
    Amidst kids’ boisterous fits-

  14. Genevieve says:

    With a hook in one hand
    and some yarn in the other
    I’ll roll the dice
    and see what today’s project will be

  15. craftcow says:

    Yarn art

    Won’t be masterpieces
    Without the pieces:
    Needles and hooks
    Yarns and notions

    Witches we are
    These are our potions

    Everything’s as easy
    As letting out a fart
    For no reason
    For Yarn Art
    Is there for all seasons

    Happy Halloween!! ;D

  16. Michelle says:

    Well, I wish I could enter, but there is no way I can write a poem. Couldn’t do in college and can’t do it now. Oh well, at least I found you blog and now I can have a look-see.

  17. Lorrie says:

    Rain on the window.
    Clover hook in hand
    ch1, yo,dc, repeat
    All bring
    Visions of holiday gifts complete.

  18. Abi says:

    Comfy afghans
    Reading patterns
    Obsessing over delicious yarn
    Collecting patterns and yarn I might never use
    Hats are my favorite projects to make
    Exploring new techniques
    Thinking about finishing unfinished projects and starting new ones

    Is what CROCHET means to me!

  19. Abi says:

    I like to crochet
    it makes me happy and sad.
    Crocheting is fun!

    This haiku is compliments of my brilliant hubby, Matt!! I’m so proud. He really does crochet.

  20. Cheri says:

    Hey, my name is Crochet,
    Look at what I have to say.
    Come hook with me,
    And see all you can be.
    Hey, my name is Crochet,
    Have a yarn delicious day!
