You now have 4 “wheels”/”circles” and a fifth one coming along… any ideas of what you’ve made thus far and what you have at the end of Day 3?
The answer is quite simple and it’s sitting in front of you, but, here comes The Crochet Lounge challenge to all you Loungers and by now, Rhelena of CrochetPatternBonanza.com‘s new fans…
- If you love the set that you’ve got, take a photo of it in the setting you think it would be utilized or a photo of it packaged as a gift.
- If you are being starstruck by inspiration, your challenge is to take a photo of the finished object YOU design it to be with the pieces you already have in hand. Should you choose option 2, you may add-on to the MCAL pattern in order to make your vision come to life.
At that point, Rhelena and I will both select our favorite submissions as well as post the top 3 Challenge Option 1 winners via votes and top 3 Challenge Option 2 winners via votes. These 3-5 participants get full bragging rights for being featured on TheCrochetLounge.com, fb, g+, plus tweeted about and can send in photos of their most treasured crochet works to be displayed on a page highlighting their hooking talent along with a story of their hooking journey. Crochet shop owner, this is your time to shine with your crochet creations that will be linked by us. Crochet Loungers, share your passion with the world and dazzle us with your creativity – no blog/store/website necessary! ~~~~~~ Link Up Here
