  54. Congratulations on the book and anniversary. This method looks very interesting!

  55. Since we were flooded out in May, I have been on a search to replace patterns and instructions that were lost. In the process, I found your site and am completely intrigued! This reminds me so much of my grandmother's crochet projects and I have just the bag of scraps that will work for this (just happened to be upstairs with no flood damage!) Congrats on your Blog-versary!

  56. Happy Blogiversary to you!

    As someone new to sewing and sewing yo-yo's, I was super excited to see that yo-yo's can be crocheted too! The afghan shown on your blog is absolutely beautiful and when I saw that you were offering us a chance to win a copy of your book I thought... why not try?! Win or lose, I will be getting a copy of your book. It looks great!

    (You know, yo-yo's may just be tempting enough to get my 14-year old interested in crocheting. Wouldn't that be awesome!)

  57. Awesome blog! Your work is inspiring and absolutely lovely!

  58. would love a copy of your book

    Your blog banner is so beautiful. It always brings a smile to my face.
    It would be great to own your book, especially with your AUTOGRAPH!!!

    Again, congratulations on all these accomplishments.
