04/14/2011: The winner of the crocheted produce bags is Beth Lowe. Congratulations, Beth!
So, I was trying to think up a good April Fool’s joke for you guys. But in the past, my jokes have not gone over well. A couple of years ago, I said I had taken a job with Johnson & Johnson, and several readers believed me and unsubscribed. Last year, I said that Lady Gaga had invited me on tour with her, thinking no one would believe that. But some did. So this year, I’m not doing it. It’s a beautiful day outside, and I’m getting read to go for a hike with my friend Elizabeth. So instead, I’m asking you to leave a comment below with your favorite April Fool’s Joke — something you or someone else has done or something you saw on the web today — for a chance to win a couple of fantastic crocheted produce bags.
Chriss from Art of Zen Crochet makes gorgeous produce sacks out of hemp yarn. Check out her site. Her scarves and other crocheted items are fantastic. The produce sacks are extremely light weight and great for getting your produce weighed without a plastic bag.
Just keep them away from kitties who like to play with yarn. Which is pretty much all kitties, right?
Leave your April Fool’s comments all weekend, and I’ll choose a winner on Monday.
