Monday Giveaway With Melmaria!

This giveaway is being posted a little late today. 
I didn't sleep very well, Wicket had a lot to drink before bed,
so I was up taking him to go potty a bit too often.
Also, Charlie is a "Sleep Howler."
Heart wrenching, blood curdling howls woke me up last night. 
Man, try falling back asleep after that! 
But anyways... on to better things.

This week's giveaway is hosted by Melmaria.
Melody is the owner and operator behind Melmaria,
A beautiful blog dedicated to the art of crochet and knit.
Her blog has some beautiful designs and patterns.
Some for sale, and some for free.

One lucky reader will win this beautiful necklace.
I love when crochet is mixed with jewelry. 
I think it's the contrast between the soft texture of the yarn, and the hard thick texture of the metal.

So, go through her  blog, find your favorite pattern/design, and tell me about it! 

Here are the rules to win: 

1.) They can visit Melody's blog and pick your favorite pattern/item
and leave a comment telling me about it.
2.) Like her page on Facebook
3.) Follow her blog
4.) And of course, follow this blog too.

Leave your email or a way to contact you in one of your comments!

Remember, you need to leave a separate comment for each entry you that you do. 
This will increase your chances, since I will use a random number generator to pick the winner.

Here is the winner of last week's giveaway!

Congrats Maggie! I'll be in touch with you.

Good luck everyone!
