Celebrate!

I got my "Masters of Basic Crochet Stitches" certificate yesterday in the mail. I am so _thrilled_. My sons made fun of me because "what is it Mom, just crochet a couple little things?"...
But it's a lot more than that - it's swatches and essay type answers. I did learn a lot....

So to celebrate my academic achievement, I will be doing a drawing for 2 books - one each by the lovely crochet women that helped me along the way.
The first one is "Crochet on the Edge" by Belinda "Bendy" Carter. She was the person who went over my swatches and patiently explained what I needed to correct.
The second one is "101 Crocheted Squares" by Jean Leinhauser. She was also extremely helpful to me.
If you want to enter the drawing, leave a comment on this post by June 14, 2008. You can only win _1_ book so if you have a definite preference (maybe you already have 1 and not the other), please state which one you'd prefer. Otherwise it will be up to my discretion. I will announce the winner on June 15, 2008. Enter as often as you like.
