To share my excitement, I am raffling off one of these here books!

2.  Leave a comment on the Cryptozoology Contest thread on Ravelry, linking and telling me your favorite pattern.

3.  Tweet about the book or share the Facebook contest post, and then drop me a line letting me know.

Enter once, twice or thrice!  You have until noon MST, Friday May 17th to enter!  I’ll randomly draw a name that evening.  Good luck!

I made up this hat last week. A friend just had a baby girl and I needed a quick gift. This woman is the most sun-conscience mother I know so I figured she’d appreciate a good sun hat. I’m hoping this hat not only shades the eyes well but will also shade most of the face. Let’s hope.

I like just about everything about this pattern except for the name. The work-in-progress name has been Baby Bucket Hat but to me that just makes me think of infant car seats, often dubbed “baby buckets.”

Due to lack of sleep and energy on my part this week I am feeling monumentally uncreative when it comes to words so I’m leaving the naming of this hat up to you. Leave a comment in this post with your name suggestion and you’ll be entered to win a skein of worsted weight Knit Picks Bare, kettle dyed the color of your choosing. You get free yarn and I get a name and a dyeing project. Win-win! You have until Tuesday March 8th at 12pm central to post your suggestion. I’ll choose my favorite that night and post the newly named pattern sometime that week.

Check back to read the fun suggestions and to download the soon-to-be-named FREE pattern!
