Shop Spotlight: Ambassador Crochet - {giveaway}

March is national Craft and Crochet Month! I've got so great giveaways, reviews and spotlights for you this month. 


Shop Spotlight

Ambassador Crochet










I've gotten the privilege to meet so many great crocheters and designers and one of my faves is Kristine of Ambassabdor Crochet. She has unique crochet patterns that are great for beginners. I've bought a few and I've been pleased with the ease of them.

Here are some of my favorites


Girls Flower Beanie - I love the flower :)

Girls Flower beanie with brim
This is my favorite! I love the snowflake design! Great for winter! 

This is one of her latest designs just in time for "March Madness"
Basketball Tam - Isn't that cute!

Here is a little bit about Kristine from Kristine:

     My mother taught me to crochet when I was 5, but I didn't pick it up again until I was married and pregnant. At that point I decided I wanted to make something for my baby so I picked it up again.  It wasn't until 2007 that I started designing my own patterns.  A friend of mine had a preemie at 30 weeks and I wanted to make something for him. He was less than 3 lbs, so a normal size baby blanket wasn't going to work.  I searched and searched but could not find a preemie pattern I liked. After about 2 weeks I thought to myself, "If I know what I don't want, why not just come up with something myself?"  I designed my "preemie basketweave" afghan.  From then on I designed about a dozen new afghans for friends. I enjoyed the designing end so much, but I never thought to sell my patterns until last year.  
I have 6 children.  My oldest is a boy and he's 18.  Then I was blessed with 5 daughters.  They are 9, 8, 6, 3, and 1.  They are 90% of my inspiration.  They each have their own personality, so I have countless styles to draw from.  It's so much fun to create for them.  Sometimes they even help me design something for themselves.  My 8 year old actually designed the "Berry Delight" beanie.  I just came up with the directions, stitch counts, etc.  It's so much fun to see their reactions to what I can create! 
I have a notebook of my designs over the past 4 years.  Most have been converted to computer and listed in my shops, but I still have many more to come.  So keep an eye on my store to see what's new :).
Come check out more about Ambassador Crochet!
