Share a Square and a Mini Contest!

If any of you crochet, I just ran into another charity project called "Share a Square". The woman running the project is looking for traditional 6" granny squares that will be made into blankets for children attending cancer camp next summer. Luckily, I have 11 squares already made that I am going to send along to her.

Now, I have decided that, even though we are a small group, I want to really encourage everyone to post as much as possible. Of course, in order to post, you need to have something to post about, so hopefully this will also encourage you to make lots of squares as well. So I have decided to have a mini contest! Every time you post to the blog between now and Saturday, July 7th, your name will be entered into a drawing. The more times you post, the more chances you have to win. I will draw a name on Sunday, July 8th and mail the prize off before I leave for the Knit and Crochet Show the following Thursday. And the prize?

One skein of Knit Picks Shimmer in the "Morning Mist" colorway. Shimmer is 70% alpaca and 30% silk, and the skein is 440 yards. So there you have it. Happy posting!

Contest sounds great! I will definitely have to go home tonight and catch up on picture taking and posting!
I can't wait to see everyone else's squares.
