October Winner... And New November Contest!

First, congratulations to CrochetMa, the winner of my October blog contest! CrochetMa, please contact me so I can coordinate sending your prize to you!

For my November blog contest, I will be creating a very special prize – my 2013 Christmas Ornament! I create an ornament each year. The winner will not only receive the pattern, they will also receive the crocheted ornament! All you need do to win is leave a comment below specifying where you heard about my blog! Good luck!

They're calling for snow this afternoon – won't amount to much, but our temps are going down to the deep freeze in the mid teens tonight! Yikes!! For some reason, whenever the first big arctic plunge happens, I am compelled to crochet something warm – immediately! Luckily, I bought three skeins of my favorite yarn, Red Heart's "Kiss," in the Cruise Blue color way. It is in the process of becoming a nice warm hat right now. If I have enough yarn left, I'll make a little mobius scarf to match. I've been in a "blues" mood all year long, so it will go nicely with most of my clothes.

I know I normally talk about crochet here, but I also wanted to share my brand new online jewelry store with you! All of my creations are natural gemstone and semi-precious metals, the "good stuff." Everything has a lifetime workmanship warranty too. All proceeds benefit our Miniature Schnauzer Rescue, Sheila's Schnauzies. Do stop by and get your "eye candy" fix! You'll see why my nickname is "SheilaSparkles!" Here are a few of my new pieces. I am particularly excited about the magnetic interchangeable necklace and bracelet sets! You can switch them around to wear in different ways! I've been having a ball making them.

Otherwise in crochet, this week I will be publishing my newest pattern, the Perky Penguin Potholder. What's next? Honestly, I don't have a clue – waiting for that inspiration to hit! I strongly suspect it may be something resembling a Christmas ornament!
