Read Petite Purls & get hooked on Etimo for FREE....

I'm having a giveaway on the Petite Purls blog!! What better way to celebrate National Crochet Month than with a complete set of Etimo hooks. Winner will get a choice of the regular or steel set.

I'm also celebrating green crafting, in conjunction with the Petite Purls spring issue which is all about being "green". So in honor of repurposing, I am also adding a gently used Liz Claiborne purse that will make an ideal project bag. During my forays at thrift shops & garage sales,I am always on the lookout for handbags that can double as  crafty organizers and this one fills the bill completely.  It has an ample bottom gusset that allows it to sit firmly upright so one can work from the bag, without it tipping over. There are also several pockets & zippered sections in the purse for securing those gadgets and whatnots. Not only does this bag look great but it will serve you well at your next knit & crochet get together.

Finally, the remaining yarn from which I made one of the Maggie Bean dolls is included, along with my leftover Kool-aid for some dyeing fun. The yarn was unraveled from a cream colored wool sweater and dyed various colors to make Lou, Maggie Beans big sister. Read more about it in my pattern from the same issue, Maggie Bean & Friends.

Disclaimer: Warning Kool-aid dyeing and harvesting yarn from unraveled sweaters are both highly addictive. Proceed at your own risk.
