Blogiversary giveaway

Hi everyone! I'll be celebrating my 2nd blogiversary on May 17. Yay! I did not want to let it pass without something to remember it by. After all its sort of becoming a tradition among us bloggers ;)
I accidentally came up with an idea for a blogiversary contest...
Well, the idea for this design came from one of the newsletters from a yarn company, which I subscribed to by email. I saw a model with a crocheted flower choker with a few beads in the center. Simple and cute. I made several, using different size of hooks and varying stitch counts. Here are two of my finished necklaces. I modeled the smaller one, its too close to my neck...(I dont have a model's neck, so I blurred the photo ;)


I'll be giving away a flower choker to two lucky visitors of my blog. Just leave a comment on this post for a chance to win :D
One more thing, if you can tell or guess where I got the idea for this design, I'll give a prize too. The first one to give the correct answer will be an instant winner. The contest ends when I draw and announce the winners on May 17.

  1. Silly you, blurring the picture!

    I can't think of where you got the idea-crocheted chokers are hot now and I have seen a few in some of the free newsletters I get emailed to me-maybe you got the idea from the latest Interweave Crochet mag?
