Summer’s End

I’ve had a really fun week. I hope all of you got a chance to visit my blog this past Tuesday for the Flash Giveaway Blog Hop. That was quite the whirlwind and a total blast. I think I, and my 7 other designer friends were all blown away by the response.

Now we are going into Labor Day Weekend. This weekend always marks the end of summer for me, even though the calendar says Autumn officially starts September 23rd.

Labor Day Sale Sq for Blog

Labor Day originally was created to celebrate the contributions of American workers. For my celebration I’m having a Labor Day Weekend Sale on 6 of my patterns, because you all work hard and who doesn’t like to save a little money? I selected patterns that use 1-2 balls of yarn and are great for gift giving (since we all know that deadline is sneaking up on us, only 112 days left).

 

One of my favorite “small start” projects. Each of these motifs are worked off each other and you can vary the length of your scarf according to the amount of yarn you have. Can even make it shorter as a “Neck Cozy” just add a pretty button and use any of the openings in the lace as a “buttonhole”. This pattern is a great one for using chunky yarns with gradual color changes.

 

Another one of my moebius twist crochet projects. I love to design like this because these projects need so little fussing with to finish. Worked in a chunky yarn this is another quick project to crochet up in an evening for your gift giving needs.

 

I loved working with this luxurious chunky alpaca yarn, the resulting cowl is squishy and so snuggly. A great project to make for someone special on your gift list who can really use a warm hug.

 

This is a crochet project for the more intrepid crocheter. The stitch pattern is changeable so you won’t get bored and the lacy fabric looks so elegant when finished you may want to keep it for yourself. The pattern has detailed text instructions and a full stitch diagram so you won’t get lost.

 

Ah Paris. This pattern is fun for experienced crocheters and a great “next-step” for newer crocheters. The stitch pattern alters every 2 rows, but is repetitive enough that it is easy to memorize. Another fun project that can be made in the original full length for a scarf, or shortened with buttons added to become a neck cozy.

 

One of my favorite moebius cowls that I’ve designed so far. This one is a little unusual in when you need to turn for your rounds, so you won’t get bored. But the rounds go so quickly that you’ll have a finished cowl before you know it. This cowl works great in color changing yarns, but would be gorgeous in a solid color as well.

 

Coupon code: LDWTMT15 will get you 15% off the price of any or all of these 6 patterns until 10 p.m. Monday, September 7, 2015 (that is Mountain time). That means you can save $3.59 if you purchase all 6 patterns. You can only use the coupon code once though, so be sure you select all of the 6 that you want to purchase in one go.

There are links for each of the patterns in the name of the pattern under each’s photo to make it easy for you to find them on Ravelry. Or you can get to my Ravelry Shop by clicking on this link: M2H Designs.

 

If you’ve never used a coupon code on Ravelry before it’s super easy.

If you are purchasing just one pattern go to the pattern page and select the “Buy Now” option in the upper right hand side of the screen.

You’ll get a nifty shopping cart box.

In the new box, look for the little tag that says “use a coupon code”.

Click on that tag, you’ll get a spot to enter the coupon code.

Once you’ve entered the code the price will be adjusted.

If you want to purchase more than one pattern, use the “Add to Cart” button on each pattern page, and once you have all the patterns in your cart that you want, click on the “use a coupon code” button and enter the coupon code.

Enjoy the sale. I hope you get lots of crochet time in during your Labor Day Weekend. Or at least some quality time with your friends and family.
