The mission of our Crochet Something Contest was simple:
Best First Crochet ProjectAll our judges were in agreement on this one, and the winner is Angela G, whose first amigurumi stole our hearts! Angela wins a set of Brittany birch wood crochet hooks (sizes D-J) and a Soak travel sized assorted 5-pack. This set includes 1 each of the popular Soak scents Celebration, Fig, Lacey, Pineapple Grove and Yuzu.
Best Art/Sculptural CrochetIt came down to a battle between two of Heidi Quick's whimsical creations and Leah McGlone's contributory square to an amazing crocheted mural for the Marian Anderson Rec Center in Philadelphia.
Best DoilyThere was no contest for this category. Linette nailed it! Linette crocheted a cool-as-heck spare tire cover for her new Jeep. It's so freaking cute! Congratulations, Linette! We're so happy you were inspired to crochet something this summer! And thank you to to our judge Sara Dudek, editor of Interweave Crochet, for the prize for the Best Doily category - a year's subscription to Interweave Crochet!
Best Home DecorConstance Oakes and Juanita were both in the running to take the win for this category. Contstance's granny square blanket and Juanita's Kawung Motif cushion both impressed our judges.
But Juanita's pillow took the win! We all loved the composition of this piece, and the design by Atty van Norel is just so cool!Juanita wins a kit from judges Kay and Ann of Mason Dixon Knitting for the Station Wagon Blanket! Thank you for your participation, ladies! It's been fun crocheting with you and your readers this summer.
