CLF NEWS: The Flamies Nominees

As I get to organizing the web survey for voting for the 2010 C rochet Awards, The annual Flamies, I thought I would switch things up a bit and blog a little more individually about the various categories. Now I certainly can’t get every category blogged solo before next Monday when voting begins, but I can get a few fun photos up here, and some interesting posts that will help inform you, the crochet public, about the nominees.

Once again I want to stress, we have a lot of categories, and you don’t have to vote for every one of them. If you don’t feel qualified for one category you will for another. Such as the one we’re featuring today, the Best Crochet Design (for Adults) of 2009. What qualifies you? We’ll you’ll love one or more of them, or not, you have an opinion, use it.
