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: George Shaheen | Yuliya Tkacheva | Amanda Perkins | The Yarn Haven | A to Z Alpacas | 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!)

Looks like a great book full of ideas and vibrant color!
I love making crocheted blankets, so this book would be perfect!
Gorgeous colors! I’m always a little intimidated by colors, but it’s fun once I jump in.
I enjoy making crochet blankets, so I think I would like this book…The blankets look beautiful!

they’re so pretty!
I love having crochet books on hand for reference and ideas. There is just nothing like having something in your hands for inspiration.
I love all your designs and look forward to making some of them for friends and family.
I’d love a copy of this book to get more ideas for the charity crocheting I do ❤?????
The colors in the blankets draw you in just like a garden!
Amanda Perkins is such an inspirational designer. I love her designs, and already own and cherish ‘Madder triangles’. This afghan book will be used and loved at least equally, if not more
I would love to learn how to use hexagons and triangles in making blankets I am intimidated by colors, so I use very little This book would be helpful in teaching me how to use color in my blankets
I love having options! These are so pretty in lots of color but can see them in neutrals as well.
The book is full of information that I could have used on other projects I have done. Has pattern instructions that I could do in small amounts of time in between other projects. I’m not good at choosing colors so you have already done that for me.
I’d like a copy of this book because I am in the process of crocheting 2
blankets and have requests for two more. Would love more inspirations.
I prefer books in hard copy for my library..
yes, I love to crochet colorful afghans. I try to make at least one afghan (or two) to enter at local fair and frequently drawn to colorful ones. Reading your book may give me ideas for my next project!
Wow! I would love to add this book into my archives! Thanks for the opportunity.
Why? Because those squares & blankets look so beautiful!
I love all of the colors and textures. The book looks interesting.
it looks like a lovely book and i font have but 1 croche book and its for wearable accessories!
would love to win, love to see a bright rainbow blanket.
I have a tendency to collect yarn, as opposed to buying what I need when I decide on a project. I’m always trying to use what I already have by combining different colors & yarn brands. I think I could probably learn some new tricks from this book. Thanks!
My current crochet book collection is 0 so it would be great to have one for myself! I have yet to make an afghan so it would be pretty helpful, I think.
I love Amanda’s patterns!! I made a beautiful shawl and a blanket from some motifs of hers. I would love love ? to have her book!!!
I love crocheting in bright rainbows, and would love to have more ideas for projects
I would love a copy of this book! I crochet with a group of knitters who make lap blankets for chemo patients. These bright colors would be sure to bring a spot of cheer to them.
I’d love to win a copy of this book. Her work is beautiful and her color combinations are stunning. I’ve never been able to mix colors like that and have it look good. Maybe this would help. Thanks for a chance to win a copy.

I love to crochet blankets and give away as gifts. This book has so many beautiful patterns. I would love to win it and make a blanket for my soon to be here niece.
