CONTEST ALERT-Doris Chan's Crochet Lace Innovations


This is the second contest this month and the prize is Doris Chan's latest book (Released April 2010), Crochet Lace Innovations: 20 Dazzling Designs in Broomstick, Hairpin, Tunisian, and Exploded Lace. I previously did a review on this book here. The book is brand new, but has a "ding" in the corner from shipping.

Rules: Easy rules this time, leave a comment here why you would like this book and spread the word about the contest. One entry per person please.

This is open to residents of US, however if you live outside of the US and are willing to pay postage through Paypal, please feel free to enter.  I will use the Random Number Generator to pick a winner next Friday, May 21 and post the winner here.

Good Luck!

I've had my eye on some of Doris Chan's work for a while - hadn't heard of this book (must have missed the reviews!) but I love crochet lace and would love to check it out. :D

I've been learning thread crochet, and would love to make something wearable that's actually cute and WEAR-able. :) I'm putting a link on my blog!

I love Doris Chan's work and whilst I am learning to do some lacework, I haven't really delved into it deeply and this would be very interesting addition to my library. It'll help expand my horizons for sure :) I'll also share it with my mom as she does like doing lacework and doilies.

Oh, I would love to get back to crocheting; this book would be a great inspiration.

I think Doris Chan is wonderful, every single item she designs brings a new life to crochet garments... She just makes me LOVE to crochet clothes :)

I've never crocheted in this style before. This would be a great opportunity to learn and give it a go!

I'm a fan on Doris Chan's also, but have yet to pick up one of her books. The top on the cover is gorgeous...I think I'll have to add this book to my collection!

Doris is my fave crochet designer (with the "dude" coming in a close 2nd) LOL. I love how easy her patterns are, yet they look like they were so difficult to make. Would def love to add this to my library!

I have tons of knitting books, but crochet books that appeal to me (aside than afghans, you can never have too many afghan patterns!) are few and far between. You hear so many knitting purists talk about crocheted clothing in the same tone that they would use to talk about turds, and yet Doris Chan's patterns are so classic and wearable. I would love to actually make one of her gorgeous lace creations and wear it to my local yarn shop!

Mimi said...

A very interesting book! Wish I had this rather than the first Doris Chan book.

I have a lot of sewing books, but not to many knitting and crocheting books. This would be a great book to add to my collection, especially since i really want to work on my lace skills!!! :D

Hi Deneen, thanks for stopping by my blog. We got the chance to visit 14 of the 20 coup's and I was surprised that they did not smell. I don't know if it was because they had clean them for the tour or what. One of the men I talked to said if you clean it out every week it won't smell bad. One guy said he put down newspaper and litter or leaves then at the end of the week he just picks up the newspaper and puts it in the compost bin. I was told chickens are very good to keep bugs eaten and lay eggs, another person said a good layer will lay 22 eggs per month. Sorry to rattle on about chickens. I had such fun.
