Blog Contest!

As most of you already know, March is National Crochet Month. But, did you know that this March also happens to mark one year since I learned how to crochet? Yep, I've been crocheting for one whole year now - woohoo!

I also learned an interesting little crochet-related tidbit today while volunteering for the annual COSI science fair (this year's theme was "Blast Off Into Space") at my daughter's school: VELCRO® brand hook and loop fasteners are named for the French words "velour" and "crochet". How about that?!

In any case, in celebration of both national crochet month and my one-year crocheting anniversary, I'm having a little contest on my blog!

The prize is this lovely, "Lively Up" hat (pattern from "Get Your Crochet On! Hip Hats and Cool Caps"). It's crocheted with super soft TLC Cara Mia yarn, two strands (peach and coral) held together, and it even has a stylin' flower on the side.

You could become the proud owner of this hat if you do the following:

1) Pick any 3 digit number between 100 and 999
2) Leave a comment on this post with your number and that you want to enter the contest.
3) You have until next Friday, March 21st at 6PM (EST) to enter.

What I'll do then after I've received all the entries, is select a 3 digit number using this handy dandy Custom Random Number Generator:
http://www.mathgoodies.com/calculators/random_no_custom.html (couldn't get the one word link to work). The person whose number is closest to the 3 digit number generated, will win the hat.

I'll then announce the winner on my blog, and the winner can email me at redhairedlaura at hotmail dot com with their name and the address to mail the hat to.

Good luck!

This is such a cool idea. I'd been seeing it advertised that March is National Craft month. Maybe I'll do something like this next year. Any excuse to make something and give it away!!! I'm going go go with the number 239!
