I have decided that the first Thursday of every month is going to be 'Sisters In Thread Crochet' day! I am always beyond excited when I meet another crocheter working with skinny thread and tiny hooks and I want to help them celebrate this wonderful variation of crochet. This week's featured 'sisters' don't know yet they are being given mention here... but I will let them know soon enough. Meanwhile, if YOU are a sister-in-crochet, or know of one, and would like to be mentioned and shared, please let me know. All I ask for is a return mention somewhere of any of my various online crafty sites (facebook, web site, blog, ravelry store, pinterest board, etc.). Let's work together to show today's generation that thread crochet is NOT just the realm of old grandmothers!
My sharing of sisters in thread crochet simply MUST start with Deborah- also known as Snowcatcher. Her weekly (yes, a new one EVERY week!) snowflake patterns make me wish I had more hours in a day to crochet! Goodness- you just have to check out her site- start with THIS blog post which has the details on how you can get your own copy of her newest MS fundraiser pattern booklet. Deborah- you know I just love you sister!
Among my newest sisters (well- she's not new to thread crochet, just new to me!) is Penny. She's got a page on Facebook called Knot Forgotten Studio, and believe me I will 'knot' be forgetting her lovely work! I discovered her through Kara's recent blog post on Petals to Picots, where Penny so graciously gave a guest tutorial on how to make this lovely item. Oh I think I may have found a new obsession... again, if only there were more hours in a day!
My last sister in crochet to share about today is Kathryn. She is an extraordinary designer of exquisite thread crochet items, one of which is this amazing Stagazer Lily doily pattern which I completed not too long ago. Kathryn's web site, CrochetNBeads, is a true celebration of thread crochet...she's even got several free patterns she has shared with all of us! Kathryn also has a Facebook page and can be found on Ravelry, Etsy, and probably a lot of other places!
I hope that you have enjoyed these little snippets of introductions and that you take time to introduce yourself to these lovely ladies of thread crochet. Love and prayers, Cara Louise
