Since yarmpumpkin won the prize in the last CAL, she was kind enough to bow out of the competition for this round.

FO Friday: Pineapples for Everyone Shawl & CAL winners

It’s been three months since I last participated in FO Friday, and it is great to be back!  This FO is actually quite a few weeks old, but I haven’t shared these pictures yet on my blog.

This is my second version of my Pineapples for Everyone Shawl pattern.  I made it during the crochet-along back in February and March.

Pineapples for Everyone striped

Once again, I must credit MC with taking beautiful pictures.  These were taken on a Sunday afternoon, when we took a stroll outside of the Ziegfield Theater.

I used Galler Yarns Inca Eco in Denim and Raspberry.  I had a lot of fun making this striped version.  I like the contrast between the two colors.

And there were many other really great versions made during the CAL!  These fourteen were completed during the CAL and entered into the giveaway.

It’s great to see the different versions and how the choice of yarn, or the degree to which you block the edges, or the number of repeats can create so many looks.

Without further ado, according to Random.org, the winner of the CAL giveaway is #3…

Chubby Sheep CAL January Giveaway winners!

We had a lot of fun during the Chubby Sheep CAL, and now that it is over, I’m happy to announce the winner of the January giveaway.  But first, let me share the awesome sheep that were finished this month!

Blacky67‘s Black Sheep

jaye-yarns‘s Sheep Shape

MommieLamb‘s Chubby Rainbow Sheep

Stormbat‘s Minikin

Relodie made two Chubby Sheep: an Evil Chubby Zombie Sheep for the boyfriend and a kinder, gentler Chubby Sheep for her dad.

Can you tell which Chubby Sheep is which? :)

All of these sheep are so cute (well, except maybe the Evil Chubby Zombie Sheep – which is scary with a side of cuteness) so I’m glad that I’m choosing the winner randomly.  I numbered each project by the order it was posted to the giveaway thread on Ravelry, and according to Random.org, the winner is #5…

 Relodie’s Chubby Sheep for Dad!

Congratulations to Relodie, the winner of a $15 Etsy gift card which can be used to purchase more amigurumi supplies or other fun stuff from Etsy.  And thanks to everyone who entered and participated in the CAL!  If you’d like to make your own Chubby Sheep, you can find the free pattern here.

And, if you’re looking for another CAL to join, I’ll be hosting one starting on February 15 for my latest free pattern, the Pineapples for Everyone Shawl.  More details will be posted soon and I hope you’ll join in!
