I love the Gwyneth Cable and have used it on a miser purse design as well which appeared in Inside Crochet, the British publication: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/miser-purse






Daughter, Bethany, is my best model!

A month ago, I finished a new creation in which I brought the outside in. I was keeping it a secret because I had planned to enter it in the 2013 CGOA Design Contest. However, I've just learned that the contest will be held in Reno and I won't be attending. The design is too fragile to mail, so I'm revealing it here!

I've been working on some projects with a lot of detail and a lot of steps, so I haven't brought anything to completion this week. As is usually my style, I will probably see several to completion all in one week sometime soon!

We are off to babysit the grandkids tomorrow and then rushing back for Crochet Buffet hosted by my CGOA chapter: http://www.nicrochet.com/ I am really looking forward to it.

Also, if you haven't been following the Blog Tour of Crochet Country over at Crochetville, there is still time to check it out. It is a wonderful way to treat yourself to a daily blog all during National Crochet Month:

CGOA Celebrates 20 Years ~ Part 3: Juried Crochet Art Exhibits

Saturday, March 29, 2014



In August 1994, I hosted 90 avid crocheters for a weekend conference at De Paul University in Chicago that included classes taught by Bill Elmore, Joan Davis, Arlene Mintzer and more;  a Keynote Address by Sylvia Landman (Crafting for Dollars); a lecture by Annie Potter; marketplace, meals together, door prizes a plenty. An optional tour of Lake Michigan on the Spirit of Chicago was offered along with an optional post conference workshop with Pauline Turner. The most ambitious of all during the weekend was the Juried Exhibit of Crochet Art.
At the time, I firmly believed that crochet art was an amazing way to educate people about the vast possibilities of crochet. It is amazing to see what can be achieved with just a hook and flexible lines from many, many materials. Today I still hold the same belief: crochet is as varied as the crocheter who does it. Crochet art, however, moves and amazes even the most seasoned professionals when they see how artists apply t…
