Because I'm a Basket Case (Contest Closed)

The Basket Case Value Set is available on Ravelry for $5.49
My pal Megan over at Crochet Every Day and I rarely get much time to talk (email at length) these days. Our lives seem to get in the way. So we put our heads together and decided to give away some goodies. Pay attention; you could walk away with free crochet patterns.

In honor of the fact that I've been a total Basket Case lately, Megan and I are each giving away one Basket Case Three-Piece Set. This is not the actual finished project, it's the .pdf file which includes patterns for the scrubby, pot holder, and towel.

The rules are pretty straightforward. You'll have three chances to win. For each of the following, you will receive one entry:

1.  Stop by Megan's blog, Crochet Every Day, follow it, and leave a comment on any post except the one that describes this contest. If you're already a follower, just leave your comment.


2.  Stop by Laurie's blog, Big Girl Blog, follow it, and leave a comment on any post except the one that describes this contest. If you're already a follower, just leave your comment.


3.  Tweet the link to the contest with a cc to Megan @themegababe or Laurie @LaliberteLaurie. It doesn't matter which blog you link to in your tweet. If you're not on twitter, then post on facebook or Google+.

Here's the important part:  After you've done one or more of the above, return here and leave one comment telling us what you did. At the end of the contest, each of us will pull one name.

Here's the bonus:  If you tell both of us what you did, you double your chances of winning.

Don't forget we'll need your email so we can notify you that you've won and deliver your prize. Each of the two winners will receive an email from downloads[at]ravelry[dot]com with Laurie Laliberte Designs in the subject line.

The contest begins at 8:00 a.m. GMT on Sunday, January 29, 2012. (That's 3:00 a.m. on the east coast and midnight on the west coast.) It ends at 8:00 a.m. on Sunday, February 5. (That's Superbowl Sunday in case you're keeping track.)

You'll also find the Basket Case Value Bundle for $5.49 on Etsy
For my non-crocheting, bookish friends, I haven't forgotten you. Stay tuned. Once details are ironed out, with another of my Kindle All-Stars pals, I'll let you know. Until then, I tease.
Happy Crocheting!
