COFFEE AND CROCHET WITH SARA (20)

More Christmas In July - And the July Give Away Winner

The Winner For the July Give Away is....
Is it you?
Watch The Video and See.
London Kaye Yarn Bomb Kit
I wish I could keep it for myself.


A Question I received a few months ago,
"Why are you doing Crochet Videos, Don't you know no one Crochets any more?"

First I was hurt, next I was mad, then I decided to do a survey.
I asked My Crochet Designer Friends What age
 category they fit into.

This is the results

       Age              Percent   
60-70            20%
50- 59           30%
40-49           20 %
30-39            15 %
20-29             10%
19 and Under 5%

I think This chart shows that people are still crocheting, but and maybe we do need to encourage younger people to learn to Crochet.
We Do not want this Wonderful art to stop.

Keep Calm,
And
Crochet On!

Vintage Christmas Boots Free Crochet Pattern | Posh Pooch Designs

Vintage Christmas Boots 
Free Crochet Pattern
By Sara Sach of  Posh Pooch Designs

The First time I saw The Christmas Granny Square Boots
 was in the Early 1970's when My Friend's Mom was 
making them. She put crumpled news paper in the toe
 of the boot. I think she used big pickle
 or mayonnaise jars to hold cookies she had made.



A few years later I was given one from my 
Sunday School Teacher.
She put tissue paper in the toe of the boot, and
 a big paper cup in the leg of the boot.
 She filled it with candy. The old Fashioned hard
 kind that tasted like cloves and cinnamon.
I pulled out that boot the other day, 
and decided to share it with you, with a modern twist.

I used Sparkle yarn From Hobby Lobby
/ I Love This Yarn Metallic and 
I Found these jars at my Local Grocery Store, 
And they are Perfect.
