Latest news and updates from June


The power of Twitter strikes again! A Twitter conversation between Groundhog Day fans @SisterDiane, @kpwerker, @kitchensinkdye and myself (@planetjune) led to a cool idea: We’re having a Groundhog-along!

Groundhog-along 2010!

Join in and crochet your amigurumi groundhog by Feb 2nd. You can join  the Groundhog-along 2010 Ravelry group and/or grab the above button image (created by Kim from my photo) for your blog. (Save the button image and upload it to your own server, please.)

If you don’t already use Ravelry, it’s free to join and a wonderful resource for all crocheters and knitters. But if you don’t want to join, send me a pic of your amigurumi groundhog before Feb 2nd and I’ll include it in my Groundhog-along wrap-up post on Groundhog Day!

(Don’t forget to get the Groundhog crochet pattern so you can add to our army of adorable crocheted groundhogs!)

I’m so excited that in one evening we’re up to 25 Groundhog-along group members already – this is going to be so much fun!

    skhan: I’m sorry to disappoint you! I wouldn’t have created a crochet-along that you can only join if you buy one of my patterns, but the Groundhog-along wasn’t my idea – I’m just mentioning it here so that people can buy the pattern and join in if they want. We have over 50 members in the Ravelry group already!

    I wonder how a pink groundhog would look next to the pink Valentine hedgehog I just bought. 🙂

  8. Kim Werker said

    Yeah, things like this are why I love Twitter so much. I have some brown yarn in my stash. I think today’s my start day!

    Heh heh heh. I adore your button! And I love how all this sprung up spontaneously on Twitter. I’m getting my groundhog yarn today!!
