Crochet Giveaway!

What you're looking at here is a good start on my Christmas gift-giving.  I have mentioned before that my fall-back craft is crochet.  And I can't think of anything easier, and more useful, to crochet than dishcloths.    

This is approximately sixty of them, done up in little tied packages of two to four to a set.

They are the easiest things in the world to make, since the only counting I have to do is the first chain.  Every stitch after that is just more of the same. 

I don't do anything fancy - although I have seen plenty of fanciness in this kind of project.  I figure - it's a dishcloth - who really cares how fancy it is?  It's bright; it's sturdy; it's utilitarian.  And everyone can use them.  Who doesn't need dishcloths?  You can give them to everyone from your just-out-of college nephew to your elderly aunt.

But here's the beauty part.  See that four-pack of deep turquoise?  That one could be yours.  Just a couple of things to do...............

1.  Consider following Sassafras Salvation.  I'd never require it.  I don't want you to follow if you're not really interested in following.  But I plan to be around a while, and I do my best to post fairly frequently.  I try to make the content interesting, even when it's just about me and my life.  So, at least consider it.

2.  Here's the requirement:  Leave a comment.  Make sure your email is somehow attached to your comment.  Unfortunately, unless I can contact you, I don't know how to be sure that I can get your prize to you.

I am thankful for each and every one of you who come to Sassafras Salvation to catch up with me.  This is my way of giving you back a little of what you give to me.  I'd love it if yours was the comment I randomly drew and if you could, in a few days, open a little soft package of turquoise dishcloths for your kitchen.

Yup, that'd be terrific.  Happy Thanksgiving.



P.S.  I'll only count comments through the month of November 2011.   I'll be drawing from the comments on December 1st, and I'll be sure to post who the winner was.

  12. I love your blog, I just stumbled on it recently. And I LOVE these dish cloths! I love the bright colors! The turquoise, pink and green are my fav! You know how to pick colors!!! Keep up the good work on the blog!

  13. I love your blog, too. Actually, I am the big sister who is quite impressed with this blog. Lots of talent here, yes? Lest regular readers believe I am biased, I will tell you what I do for a living. I am a regulatory analyst. Still awake? Good. That means I spend the day dissecting the familiar and finding flaws and virtues in all kinds of things. And I want a chance to win turquoise washrags. I've been gifted with these items. Functionally? Really sweet. Aesthetically? I want turquoise.

  14. That's a LOT of darling dishcloths, Kathy! And you're so smart to have gifts made in advance. That certainly would reduce the craziness of last minute shopping. ;)

    Thanks for linking to Time Travel Thursday. Hope to see you again this week.
