The Sepember Giveaway for Heather’s Grounded novel went to Kristine M (paperback) and Tracee T (digital).
You have until October 31st to win a copy of our new book—Sweet and Simple Baby Crochetby Kristi Simpson.
Grounded is out!!!
Find out about the new sock patterns based on characters from the book, our KALs, and how you can share your desgins based on the book at the new site. Our first sock pattern went out to pre-orders but is available for you to buy now on Ravlery.
To keep on top of new socks, shawls, and sock puppet theater (you heard me) join the Grounded mailing list!

- Halos of Hope Podcaster Throwdown (Our CraftLit-Throwdown group page on Ravelry) The rules are–There are no rules!
No just kidding, but we are treating it a bit like a playground style throwdown, so there aren’t many rules.
It basically boils down to this–
Listeners may donate to multiple podcast teams (but each individual hat will only count toward one team).
Follow the Halos of Hope guidelines when making your hats. (http://www.halosofhope.org/volunteers/cap-patterns-a-guidelines.html)
It’s looking like there will be prize drawing for people who donated hats to the winning team.
Since we’re a multi-craftual podcast, please know that hats may be knitted, crocheted, or sewn. And there are even a few patterns for sewn hats/headwraps on the Halos Site.
