    I think the confusion about email entries comes from the paragraph just above the form. I also understood the second sentence to mean that anyone who entered via email had the emails deleted. You just got to love the English language. πŸ˜‰

        I entered via email on May 13th (checked my Sent folder to be sure of the date). Per Joann’s question and your reply, it sounds like my email entry is still good. You may want to post a clarification of this on the Facebook post about the giveaway, as there’s a lot of confusion among the commenters there; quite a few of the ladies (& gents) there were assuming that their previous email entries had been wiped out and they had to reenter.

    Thank you Mikey… 1 and a half years ago my mom taught me how to do a chain, from there I found Mikey online and he has taught me how to do so many blankets, socks, hats, and other stuff…

    Crocheting (and Mikey) has been a blessing for me as I’m able to alleviate stress with my hooks and yarn! Now 1 1/2 years later I came up with the idea of my friends, family,donating yarn scraps, skeins, and balls and me hitting all the local yard sales etc.etc. I’m using those donations to pump out blankets, hats, and scarves for the homeless population here in Albuquerque/Rio Rancho…

    All this started out with Mikey’s teaching, just want to thank him

    I have been following the crochet crowd on Facebook and I’ve been so jealous of all that yarn!!!! I keep going on the yarn factory outlet site to the e-tent sale and filling my online cart but alas I have 3 little kids and cannot afford to swim in yarn. Maybe one day! βœ‚

    That’s for doing this giveaway. I’ve been temporarily banned from buying yarn since being unemployed for a time. I’m hoping to get a good permanent job soon so I can satisfy my craving for all the new yarns coming out!!!! BTW: I noticed your form didn’t include a Zip Code field so I added mine into the additional mailing field. πŸ™‚

    Thanks for all you do!! I love buying and getting yarn. My hubby even looks for it at yard sales, estate sales and the like. He always calls me first to see if it is a good price and then when he gets home, I usually don’t know what kind of yarn it is. You know, the specialties where you can’t see your last stitch. Sometimes I work on them and just make scarves. Maybe some day I will learn what to do with them, if not, experimenting and a good laugh never hurts. If I can’t laugh at my own snafoos, who can.

Also, if we don’t buy yarn at Wal-Mart or Ben Franklin’s, we don’t buy it at all. Thank God for the internet and The Crochet Crowd!!
