Ellen of Go Crochet Hosts 50 Sunflowers Book Giveaway! Webs Tent Sale Wrap-Up + More

Ellen Gormley - crocheter extraordinare and blogger at Go Crochet - has a giveaway of my new book 50 Sunflowers to Knit, Crochet and Felt going on her blog this week. Ellen and I are on Knit and Crochet Now - she is the crochet expert and I am the knit expert. It was fun to spend time with her a couple weeks ago! Check it out here.

Here's a photo I took at the Webs Tent Sale the other day of my real handmade sunflowers and my new book. It was great to meet everyone who stopped by the booth including long-time reader Michelle of Three Bags Full. She brought me a sweet little handmade bag perfect for my double pointed needles. Check out Michelle's Etsy Shop Here. Thank you Michelle.

It was so much fun to share my finished projects with everyone at Webs. I think this book really resonates with many people of all ages. I loved meeting both knitters and crocheters and some young stitchers too. Lovely to see grandmothers teaching their grandchildren about their passion. You can listen to the Webs Podcast with my friend Sarah Delaney being interviewed by Steve Elkins here. There were a lot of fiber vendors with beautiful things with them for sale.

Busy week here catching up. Hope I get a lot of work done! This weekend is the Massachusetts Sheep and Wool Festival in Cummington, MA. It's a great family event. Info here. 

We're still moving sheep around. It's an all-summer job. Here's a group which are grazing some grass that is too wet to hay at this time of year.  They are loving the fresh green grass.

Kristin, it was so fun to meet you too! So many of my friends live in my computer and it's great to meet them in person! Thanks for the shout out.

What a fun and crazy day it was at the Webs Tent Sale!
