The Crochet Express National Crochet Month Blog Tour


Welcome to Crochetville’s fourth annual National Crochet Month (NatCroMo) blog tour, taking place each day of March 2016. Join us as we take a virtual tour on our passenger steam train, The Crochet Express, visiting crochet designers, crochet-friendly local yarn stores, and yarn companies, and offer some fun giveaways.

Today’s Posts: Sonya Blackstone | Betty Hechtman | Margaret Hubert | Knitkabob | Premier Yarns | Daily Giveaway

Want to Chat about the Tour?

Part of the fun of taking a passenger steam train trip is talking with your fellow passengers. This year, we’re providing two locations where our passengers can get to know each other. We’d 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 can always use a gorgeous shawl pin like these. They are really beautiful. I make and wear shawls, and I would love to win this giveaway. My fingers are crossed! Thanks for sharing!

  2. This shawl pin is gorgeous! And it would go perfectly with one of the two shawls I am currently crocheting πŸ™‚

  3. They are beautiful!! I just finished a shawl for a lady who doesn’t have much. I would love to be able to give her that pin!

  4. I have a large collection of shawls that I wear regularly and I can always use more shawl pins in spite of the fact that I already have several.

  5. Those shawl pins are fabulous and will complement any of my shawls. I certainly could use them or can gift them to friends.β™‘

  6. I have many lovely shawls that I have crocheted, but alas, nary a shawl pin to be found πŸ™ Paradox Art Glass…that is absolutely beautiful!

  7. I most definitely have several really nice shawls in need of beautiful pins. Would be so much fun, especially on the one I wear most days at work because our building is so cold. Thanks for sharing!

  8. Do you have any shawls in need of a gorgeous shawl pin? I have lots of shawls needing a shawl pin. I just made another one.

  9. These shawl pins would need shawls made especially for them!!! <3 I have some lovely patterns that would showcase them nicely. πŸ™‚

  10. I just crochet a shawl that first was for myself, however I am giving it to my Aunt as a 80th Birthday present. If I win I will give the pins to her.

  11. I have several shawls that need shawl pins. Actually I just bought one of yours for myself for my birthday next month! Love all of them!

  12. Since I LOVE to crochet shawls this would be a wonderful prize to win. I would give one pin and one shawl as a gift to someone special. And then….perhaps…keep one…?!

  13. I have some handmade, crocheted shawls and scarves that are in desperate need of such lovely pins!
    These are so different!
    Thank you for the opportunity! it is appreciated.

  14. I’ve been into knitting a lot of shawls lately (and I have a few crochet ones that are in my queue), and they all could use a lovely shawl pin that this one!
