It's National Craft Month and in celebration, Jo-Ann Fabrics & Crafts is giving away a bunch of great patterns by prominent designers. I'm thrilled to be a part of the craft community that they're featuring! During the entire month of March my Leafy Ascot--designed out of NaturallyCaron.com's Spa--will be available as a FREE, take-away pattern! Just go to any Jo-Ann store across the nation, look for the kiosk below, and nab it. Oh, and it only takes 1 ball of Spa to make it, so it's not only a lovely accessory for the Spring, but also an affordable one to make. Enjoy!
Share your pictures of you or a friend KIPing (Knitting in Public) or CIPing (Crocheting in Public), and we'll put it on Buy.Caron's homepage. It's simple! Just email your pictures to BuyCaron@gmail.com, and we'll do the rest. Whoever posts the most creative KIP or CIP picture will receive a free "mystery box" from Buy.Caron.com. Get all the details here.
