Okay, you can call me a temptress if you want to.

How do you win a prize?

Each day, we have a check-in where you share your progress with the group in the comments. A winner is drawn at random each day for the grand prize (pictured above) and runner up prizes (given by me, pictured below).

Runner up winners get to choose between a pom deal (buy 2 get 4 free) from my Etsy shop or a free crochet pattern PDF of their choice.
