And the winner is........

Hello Lovelies!
Sorry to keep you all waiting in suspense! I was hoping to come and announce the winner of the competition on Saturday evening, but a busy work schedule got the better of me.
Thank you to everybody who entered the competition, it really was a lot of fun and very exciting to have so many people enter. I had over 400 entrants!!
As mentioned in the last post, the winner will receive this rather glorious collection of knitpro crochet hooks, diamond edition!

Who wants to find out how many buttons were actually in that jam jar?
I'm sure you're more eager to find out who the winner is?!
Well........drum roll please........

The winner of this fab hook set is..........

Angie was the first person to correctly guess 324 buttons! Rather funny that in her comment she also wrote that she is "no good at this", apparently Angie couldn't have been further from the truth!
Congratulations Angie!!!

Once again thank you to everyone that took the time to take part. I'll have to do it again some time!

The Giveaway- Crochet Hook Set

Hello Lovelies!!
I do hope you are all having a jolly good week?
Would you like to see what I bought on Monday?
A gorgeous gift that makes my heart kind of flutter.....
A stylish and sophisticated box, that when opened contains some rather divine, brand spanking new, wooden crochet hooks.

My absolute favourite crochet hooks in fact! I swear by these hooks and have used them in many of my projects:

I find them so utterly comfortable to work with! They glide through your work with ease and precision.

These hooks are extra special though! They not only come in a gorgeous storage box, but they each contain a little decorative diamond at the base of the handle. A rather unique touch.
It appears they double up not only as crochet hooks, but as magic wands as well!

The box is in simple in black and has a rather elegant, golden design on the top.
Inside (again in gold) is the manufacturers logo, Knitpro.
The box is designed to store these special hooks, so there is (of course) a functional elastic contraption that holds each of the hooks in place. 

8 gorgeous hooks in total! Thats a 3.5mm, 4mm, 4.5mm, 5mm, 5.5mm, 6mm, 7mm and a chunkier 8mm hook. One couldn't ask for more!

Here's the thing.....
I didn't actually buy these hooks as a gift myself. Instead they are a gift for you!!!!
One of you gorgeous people could get your hands on this set as I'M HAVING A GIVEAWAY!!
It's been a while since I did this on my blog. I remember last time... the excitement and buzz was a lot of fun! I though it was about time that I did another :-)

So to win this absolutely fabulous set of elegant hooks, all you have to do is guess how many buttons I have in my jar (below). SIMPLE!!!!

To enter just leave a comment at the bottom of this post along with:

  • Your guess (How many buttons in the jar above?).
  • Your name.
  • Where you are from.

Everybody, anywhere in the world can enter. But please only one guess each!
The winner of the crochet hook set will be the first person to guess the correct amount of buttons in the jar. However, if nobody guesses by next Friday (30th January), the winner will be the person who made the earliest and closest guess.

This is SUCH FUN!! Good luck everybody!!!!!



I'll reveal who the winner is later today.
Thank's to everybody that participated, that was a lot of fun!
