Wow! I blinked, and now it's March 2017! Isn't March great? I mean, I could do without the Lake Effect winds, -20C temps and snow up to my eyeballs; but March means we are so close to Spring. Soon I will be able to put away the snow suits, the winter boots, the shovels and ice scrapers. My entrance won't be covered in slush and soggy mitts. I can once again open my windows and let in the fresh air! Ahhhh... Spring is so close I can almost feel it ❤️. But, do you know what else is so great about March? It means we are also celebrating International Crochet Month, or NatCroMo!
I have once again joined the Crochetville Annual Blog Tour. This is their 5th tour and the theme this year is "Glamping"! Each day on the Crochetville blog, you will meet Crochet Designers, Local Yarn Shops, Yarn Companies and be able to enter giveaways.
This year, I thought that I would offer both a brand new FREE pattern, as well as a discount code to use in my Ravelry Shop. Want the details? Use code NATCROMO to get 70% off all single patterns in my Ravelry Shop until Wednesday, March 22nd!
The newest Sincerely, Pam pattern are these adorable leg warmers! I had a contest on my Facebook Page asking people to name their favorite stitch. The winner has the pattern I used the stitch in named after them. Brooke had suggested I try the Primrose Stitch, and this is what flew off my hook! Written for sizes 0-6 months up to Adult Large, you can make a pair for anyone in the family!
