2014 Christmas Give-Away - RED HEART Medley Yarn!

When I was eight my grandma gave me a, "learn to crochet" kit for Christmas. So, after Christmas I walked down the street to her house so she could teach me to crochet. My hands would not cooperate, so being an obnoxious eight-year old, I told her, "I hate crocheting and crocheting is for old people." This did not make my grandma very happy. I never thought again about crocheting until 20 years later when I saw a cute pattern I wanted to make. So, I asked my sister to show me how to crochet - which she did - and now I crochet a lot! Occasionally my husband asks me; "Now, who did you say crocheting was for?!!!"

So, now I am a person who crochets, I love finding patterns for things I can make. A while back I was browsing on Pinterest when I found a pattern for slippers . . . which you will find at this link!

I have a couple skeins of RED HEART Medley Yarn which would make wonderful gifts for someone on your list - and there is time to make things! This yarn is available in beautiful color combinations and is so soft . . . I think scarves from RED HEART Medley Yarn would make amazing gifts! If you are over the age of 18 and would like to be in the drawing (USA only) which will be on November 12, 2014, please comment below to let me know your favorite thing to crochet or knit - I enjoy making hats for my grandsons! 

In addition, you will receive additional entries if you have followed on Google+, Google Friend Connect, followed by liking on facebook with the tab at this link (not just liking the post) and/or have followed grandma's cookie jar by email. For each of these which you have done you will receive one entry. In addition, if you "share" this post, you'll receive an additional entry (please let me know if you share). This will help me be able to draw names from among people who would like to win the RED HEART Medley Yarn and it gives you several ways to enter the give-away!
