Summer Popkes II

Summer-blog

Hello everybody, it has been a while! I had a lovely and active summer holiday but the activity did not include any Popke designing. (It did include too much running away from deer flies who hunted us down in groups while hiking, but still we had a lot of fun.)

I am back now and as a last goodbye to my holiday, I happily present a new summer Popkes picture. Just look at those lazy animals, they don’t seem to be pining for Autumn as I am…

As many of you know, I started a Popke joy photography contest on Instagram. I received a lot of messages from crafters who don’t have Instagram but really want to join the contest. Amongst them are some dear friends and I decided to expand the contest. If you are a member of my Ravelry group, you can now find a thread there with everything you need to know about the contest and, do join, it is fun! I’ve already seen many Popke joy pictures there in the past. Actually, the crafters there came up with Popke joy in the first place, so it would be more then fair to have the contest there too.

You can now join the contest there or use the #popkejoy on instagram.

This holiday I did design the upcoming crocodile on paper, so be ready for a first glimpse of his sweet and kind looks this week.

It is good to be back!

Win a pattern with Instagram

Hi everybody! This weekend I started on Instagram and discovered how easy hashtags work. I thought it would be fun to start a ‘Popke joy’ Instagram contest. The winner can choose one of my patterns!

Now how does the contest work?

It’s very simple. Just go out, or stay in, whatever you like and take a picture of a Popke or Popkes in an interesting surrounding. I made a fun example picture of Popkes inspecting my new boots. Follow me on Instagram and use hashtag #popkejoy when you share your photo on Instagram. When I search for #popkejoy, I can see all the pictures you made using the hashtag. September the 10th I will choose my favourite picture and will publish it here at Son’s Popkes. Of course I will also write the winner and ask which pattern he or she would like to receive.

In short:

Starts August the 10th and ends september the 10th

There must be a Son’s Popkes pattern crocheted animal in the picture

Follow me and use hashtag #popkejoy

Good luck!
