Getting Ready For the Fair

The hook is red hot here! I’m crocheting like a mad woman – morning noon and night – and the hats, the snoods and the fingerless mitts are rolling off the hook for the Christmas Spirit Fair on Sunday. I took a few pictures of some of the hats and fingerless mittens today and though […]

I have been invited back to the library in Skive in Denmark, where I will be teaching on Saturday October 27th and Sunday October 28th. The Sunday workshop is fully booked, but I believe there are still a few places […]

Male & Female Crochet

I have done a good bit of commission work of late, something I very rarely do as I find it has a tendency to curb my own creativity. However, the Blue Morph can most certainly not by any stretch of the imagination be something that would curb my creativity. Quite the opposite! I received a […]
