    Enter me in! I’m currently, well trying to finish of a ripple crochet blanket before I start some cushion covers but it’s been far, far too warm to sit under a blanket and crochet it! 

    Cyndi says:

    I love doing small crochet projects in the summertime!  This book looks awesome :-)

    I’m one of those people that crochets year round for all types of projects.  I don’t usually make special summer things in the summer, but I try to avoid assembling large blankets in the summer (unless I’m sitting in an air conditioned room).  I love making hats and motifs year round, and I think Crochet Garden would give me some great appliques ideas to add to my projects.  Thanks for the giveaway!

       I hear you! I’m a quilter: no fun to be stuck working under a heavy blanket when it’s hot outside!

    Beezus says:

    I’m still in the beginnings of my crochet journey, so I’d love a chance to branch out into something like this!  :)

    Kim Baehr says:

    I am creating my own pattern for a circle shrug. :-)  Other  WIP’s – baby blanket (2) and assorted fingerless gloves/head warmer sets to sell later in the year.

    I’m a total crochet beginner, but love the calming nature of it…..my mother is determined I will eventually get it and since she was right about that with sewing, I’m going to keep the faith! :) As for flowers….love Stock, Freesia and Calla Lillie. Being part of a family of a florist, I get to enjoy them year round too! Thanks for the fun! 

    Carmen says:

    I am trying to be really good and finish a shawl for my aunt. It’s really a remake. She loved the first version but wanted more coverage for her arms, so I’m making several rows with no end increases (in other words, it won’t exactly be triangular). I’m in the final 10 rows or so, which means it’s going slow.

    Mary F. says:

    wildflowers are my favorites. toddler sweaters for two great-grand boys are on the schedule. 

    Jenny Chang says:

    Awesome!  I grew up in KS so I love sunflowers! 

    Julia Boyer says:

    I just designed a great octopus pattern, and I’m trying to decide what I want to embroider it on! As far as crochet, I’m working on a pair of mittens for this winter! My favorite flower is the Calla Lily. :)

    Hi to all from Zagreb, Croatia! I know that being where I am from in the world I can’t really enter to win this wonderful prize (sob!) but let me tell you about my “hooky plans” for this summer anyway. Well, for starters a bunch of crochet stone fish that might become necklaces, various other summery necklaces, a UFO granny square bag for my favourite reads in English this summer and a whole lot of matchbox houses with crochet dolls/ tooth faries inside. And of course whatever else I feel like making in between projects (it would be wise to start thinking Christmas, don’t you think?)
    As for my favourite flower, I fell in love with daffodils of the crochet kind this spring and made a whole bunch for my friends and family. The smallest ones went into a nice Easter garland for me.

    Wishing the lucky winner many blissful crochet hours,
    Andreja

    I love it! Who wouldn’t want to win that!!?

    Currently I am working on my 2nd pair of patriotic socks (yes, they are crocheted & 2 different patterns). I have a pillow and afghan set that I have planned for this summer along with starting on my Christmas projects. Also have a tote that I am also hoping to finish up. And I have plans to make a tablecloth (this is going to be my 1st tablecloth). Also have more socks to crochet (going to use a multi-color that has pink, yellow, & red in it for the next pair)

    I would love to win the book.  It looks wonderful.  I’m working on a 48 hour throw – I’m and hour and a half into it.  And, I’m making a cozy for the cable remote.  I’m getting a new one because I’ve dropped the old one about 200 times.  And, I making a cozy for my hand fan.  And, a whole bunch of tawashi flower type face cleaners for Christmas.

    Who doesn’t love colorful flowers? And these are actually projects small enough for me to finish!

    dragonfly3516 says:

    I have been wanting this book…..I am always crocheting flowers for somethng

    Marsy says:

    My crocheting is totally random right now – I keep trying out various motifs and yarns, and have piles of lovely items with no actual plans.

    It had been years since I crocheted, but I recently took it up again. :-)  Right now I’m just making dishcloths to practice stitches.  I think I’m remembering fast, though.  Maybe crochet is like riding a bike…you never really forget how. 

    Kate Ratcliffe says:

    I love the crochet look, and the versatility of it. Can’t wait to give these flowers a go!
