Short Notice on a Great Contest

Sharing this with all you knitters and crocheters out there may not be such a good idea since it might lessen my own chances of winning, but it's so hard not to share a good thing, isn't it? Of course, if you shop at Michael's you probably already know about it. What I'm talking about is...

Vanna's Choice Knitting and Crochet Contest! It's being sponsored by Lion Brand Yarns at Michael's stores. The grand prize is $1,000 and an all-expense paid trip for two to Los Angeles to meet Vanna White and be part of the Wheel of Fortune audience. But the contest ends on February 1, 2009 and that is less than a month away!

You can read all about it here if you are interested.

I would not be so excited about this and sharing it with you except for the fact that I just recently used Vanna's Choice yarn for the first time and I think it's safe to say that I love it! I have always been a dyed-in-the-wool Red Heart user almost exclusively, but I must admit that Vanna's yarn is very nice to work with. It is so much softer than the original Red Heart, and very much like the newer Red Heart Soft which I have used on baby blankets and such. And her colors are beautiful too!

Besides, who wouldn't love a chance to take a trip to Hollywood and trade crochet tips with Vanna? And I just know I could guess each phrase before the contestants do! So read about it and get those hooks and needles out. See if you can be a winner too!

Happy Stitching!

  • I LOVE that sweater you have on your profile page! I knit once in awhile...I crochet more often than that...but I'd rather sew! My daughter knits beautifully...and taught herslef, that is real talent to me! I am glad people like to knit, I enjoy watching them do it, it seems so "down to earth and basic" like people working the land to provide for their families....
