Friday the 13th Contest/ Giveaway

I am a huge horror movie/horror story buff. I love anything that will scare the pants off of you. I'm not into the gore, but the fright. I love it.
I am also a very crafty person. If I set my mind to it, I can figure out how to create most anything. I absolutely love to make jewelry, but my true passion is working with yarn. I love the way it feels slipping through your fingers as you create something new. Most recently I taught myself to crochet.
My true inspiration for crochet came from my mother in laws find of this book.

She immediately thought of me when this came through the library. It is chalk full of all kinds of creepy creations. They are so much fun to make I thought I should share them with others.

With that said.....

Would you like to win a zombie?

How about the Nosferatu?
Maybe a Vampire Queen perchance?
Or how about the dreaded Chuthulu?

I will be giving away one of each of these creations on Friday March 13th. I have only had a chance to create the zombie, the others are pictures from the book. Once I complete them the photos of the actual creations will be posted instead of their pictures.

So, how do you enter?!?
1. Leave a comment telling me which creation you would like. =1 entry

2. Post about the contest and then e-mail me at jen72175atgmaildotcom. =1 entry

3. Create a post with a scary story in which your creation choice is somehow involved. =2 entries. Then e-mail me your entry and it will be linked at the bottom of this post. An example is provided below for the Zombie. That way others can read your creative story.

4. Bonus point entry for the first 3 people who can tell me something about Chuthulu. I am a huge horror buff, so I am well versed on the Chuthulu stories.

Winners will be chosen at random on March 12th and announced on the 13th.
I truly look forward to your creativity! Good luck and if you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask.

  1. I think they are all pretty cute. Just like the Minkees. I believe I like the Zombie and would buy one from you. =)

  2. I came over here from 2 Knit Monkees...I'd love to have any of your creations. The Vampire Queen has caught my eye, though. And Chuthulu? Created by HP Lovecraft, right? I'll post something "scary" for ya, too!

  3. Wow--I love 'em! I would like any one of them!

    Cthulu is something created for "Weird Tales" and looks like a gigantic octo-monster!

  4. Aww, I think they are kind of cute. Especially the little green one!!!!

  5. I don't understand these rules. Explain it for me because I need something voodoo-ish.


Your input would be greatly appreciated!!!
