Not your grandma's crochet

THE GIVEAWAY IS CLOSED!!

CONGRATS to Sarah from http://thepitterpatterboutique.blogspot.com/

I have always wanted a grandma around to crochet me blankets, slippers, berets, scarves and gloves. Have you ever started a project and never finished? Me too. I have started so many projects thinking this is the year I am going to learn to crochet a scarf and it has never happened. Thankfully, I have come across someone amazing!

Let me introduce you to Miss CaitiJo of CaitiJo crochet! CaitJo is an 18 year old independent crocheter from Georgia. Lets talk about her products. Quality. Innovation. Stylish. And great pricing.



I was so excited to receive my blue beret for the chilly season. I love, love, love it! It is so warm and cozy. That's me wrangling the boys for the classic pumpkin patch photo. Turned out pretty well we think. Of course, there's a slight chance we're bias...

She has so many beautiful items to offer. And if there is something you would like, she will make it for you!! How great is that?! So, for all of you girls like me who have half-knitted scarves stored up in a bag in the back room closet, you can now have the handmade comfy, cozy slippers of which you've dreamed. All of CaitiJo's products also make great gifts!



The Giveaway Goods: I am excited to tell you that I have a pair of CaitiJo charcoal grey slipper socks. They are wonderful! They are super comfy, have great give and are very soft!

To Enter: All you have to do is check out CaitiJo crochet and tell me your favorite item! Please leave me your email address as well.

To Win: Hope I select you! :) I will pick a winner on Halloween, this Friday the 31st! You will be notified via email and I will post your first name in a victor post here on my blog. Thanks for stopping by.

First of all you look way too good in that hat! :) It would not look as hot on me (being a brunette :) I LOVE the sun shiny slippers, and would be super thrilled to own a pair. I also think that the price point of all these items are really affordable and the shipping is very reasonable.

I love homemade crochet/knitted items. It's hard for me to choose a favourite. I love all the berets as I've loved them ever since I was a kid. But, the Inky Scarfling is so delicate and pretty, I have to pick it as #1. I do hope I win the slippers. :)
