Are you ready? ... I Can't Hear You...ARE YOU READY??? Let's Get Ready To RUMBLE!!!!!

We Heard you that time!  We know you're ready and we are too!  So, let's start introducing our returning challengers who will be competing in Round 4 of the Battle of the Stitches.
In corner #1, we're bringing back the lovely miss Lisa from Pink Snail Boutique.  Lisa is fairly new to designing, but trust me, she can hold her own! She was thrown into the fire in Round 3 and did a fantastic job designing her Braided Cable Poncho. Hook in hand and yarn at her side, we know she'll bring her all!

Hi, My name is Lisa, the crafter behind Pink Snail Boutique.

This is my second battle round and I am so excited. I was a challenger in Round 3 and had just released my first paid pattern the month before. Now with a couple more designs under my belt I am ready to go.
Braided Cable Poncho by Pink Snail Boutique

I have been crocheting at least weekly for the past three years. Prior to that I mainly made blankets for family members. I started my business offically on Dec 20, 2011. It started mainly with custom orders and I have added some non-crochet items to my lineup as living in the deserts of California does not require a big need for scarves, beanies or gloves.  (We love seeing her bright and fun chunky necklaces too)
You can keep track of Lisa and the many adventures from Pink Snail Boutique on various social sites:

And in corner #2, we're bringing back our Fan's choice winner from Round 3 sporting her beautiful Chilly Cables Coatigan,  You've got it!  Sonya Blackstone of Blackstone Designs has her yarn wound up and hooks are still hot. 

Hey there! If you followed last round you remember me; I’m Sonya, owner of Blackstone Designs and the round 3 fan’s choice winner! I’m so glad to be back and I’m super excited for another fun challenge! 

I have been designing crochet patterns for two years and I just love it. When I’m not crocheting, you will find me doing some other type of craft! Right now, I am learning to knit and I can’t wait to see where this takes me! Living in Central Maine there isn’t much else to do. Luckily, I have crafty kids too, so it doubles as family time! Win-win!

Thanks for taking time to read a bit about me. Follow me on your favorite social media to keep up on all the latest news and offers.

 Welcome back ladies!  We've got an awesome line up once again and will continue announcing challengers and judges, so make sure you are getting your notifications on the various social sites or stay tuned here so you don't miss out.  Tons of games and prizes are on the line!
