2017 NatCroMo Blog Tour, March 19: Daily Giveaway

A-Glamping We Will Go: 5th Annual National Crochet Month Blog Tour

Welcome to Crochetville’s fifth annual National Crochet Month (NatCroMo) blog tour, taking place each day of March 2017. Join us for a month of virtual glamping (aka glamorous camping), as we visit crochet designers, crochet-friendly local yarn stores, and yarn companies, as well as offer some fun giveaways.

Today’s Posts: Carol Rupprecht | Darcy Johnson | Anneke Wiese | Daily Giveaway

Want to Chat about the Tour?

Part of the fun of glamping is the daily round-up around the campfire, chatting and stitching with friends. We hope you’ll join us in our NatCroMo Facebook group, where we’ll be sharing daily camping recipes, campfire songs about crochet, and so much more! We’d also love to hear about your favorite things you’ve discovered on the tour and see photos of your current crochet projects. You’re invited to join us daily for virtual cocktails/appetizers and dinner. (We’ll be sharing links to some fabulous recipes!)

  1. I don’t have a green thumb more like a brown one. Certainly I would have to crochet my flowers.
    Thanks for the opportunity.

  2. I do not have a green thumb. It is my husband who keeps our plants alive. His great-grandfather started a commercial greenhouse more than 100 years ago which is still family-owned and going strong, and I like to think he inherited the green thumb gene.

  3. I love plants, but have a terrible green thumb (more of a brown thumb). I crocheted a fern for a watershed project, so I would love to crochet more plants!

  4. Karen, I love your vintage views on Facebook, esp. The Irish Lace Crochet…amazing! Thank you for sharing you knowledge. BTW…love your NC necklace. So creative and fun! Re: plants…used to have indoors and out….love nature.

  5. I think one thumb is green, and the other black! I love plants, and have several tropicals that I’ve enjoyed inside the past few winters, and outside in the summers. However, I’ve said more that once that I’d like to have the money back from buying all the plants I’ve killed!

  6. I do not have a green thumb, my daughter got all that talent. I would love to have crocheted plants to accompany my crocheted flowers.

  7. Sadly, I have the blackest thumb imaginable. I have found that crocheted plants are the only ones I can keep alive. I love the idea of a book that will help me crochet some pretty house plants that my cats can’t eat and I can’t kill.

    Thanks for the giveaway!


  8. There was a time in my life when I was obsessed with growing cuttings of succulents and repotting different plants and would grow them and nurture them. These days I don’t care for them like I’d like but I’m hoping to get back into growing beautiful plants and edible ones as well.

  9. I have both indoor and outdoor plants. My neighbor’s say I have a green thumb especially when my flowers start to grow in their yard. The seeds must blow over the fence or the birds carry them. They get flowers before me. Thanks for the giveaway.

  10. I don’t have a green thumb. Plus I have a cat and so many plants are toxic for them. I would love to win these books – particularly the one with patterns for the plants! Thanks for the chance to enter the drawing.

  11. My thumbs are very black, especially with indoor plants. I’ve even managed to kill a spider plant. ๐Ÿ™ I definitely need to stick to crocheted house plants.

  12. I love looking at vintage patterns. I search my local salvation army shop and yard sales for old patterns. Thanks for the giveaway.

  13. No green thumb here, at least not for indoor plants. I can leave flowers to their own devices outdoors and I can grow tomatoes.
