We interupt the regular scheduled programming of the Blog for an important announcement!
As you know I have offered to help Candi Jensen, Executive Producer of Knit and Crochet Today bring awareness to the public about the need for underwriting dollars and private donations.
Folks we’re starting to get down to the wire, and yes Candi has secured some new underwriting dollars, and yes the donations are beginning, but we are only about half way to where we need to be in order for Season 3 to hit the airwaves in January! By the middle of September we need to be fully funded! So, crocheters, knitters, yarn lovers if you can donate $5, $10, $20 or heck $50 to the show, you will be listed as a donor on the website and make history!
Did you know that the show is the number one rated of it’s kind in the USA? And it even got nominated for a Regional Emmy!
If you haven’t been able to see the show, you can check it out on the Detroit PBS Website! If you want a sneak peak of Season 3 check out this interview with Debbie Maccomber on the Knit and Crochet Today Website!
And to donate? Easy peasy just go here! http://www.knitandcrochettoday.com/donate.html
You can also sign up for the upcoming newsletter and register to get free patterns! YAY! Check it out!
If you can help please do! This is such a great show and Candi Jensen is a brave and talented woman for tackling such a great venture!

First Iwould love to share the great news that Mary Beth Temple’s Hooked for LIfe is going into it’s second printing! Hah, we kept saying the crocheters could read! Congratulatoins to Mary Beth Temple on that brilliant good news, and I have to admit that after the review here on the CLF Blog; I have read and read the book at least five times 🙂 Love it!
I WANT MORE LIKE THIS!
By the way, it’s Monday and that means Mary Beth Temple’s LIVE podcast happens at 9pm Eastern/6 Pacific at http://www.blogtalkradio.com/mary-beth-temple! Don’t miss her show!
And more information about the competition!
Someone posed this thought/question “Is it not unfair to have lace entered or open work because they automatically drape?”
Nope. It’s not unfair, and one reason is that they do not always automatically drape. I make lace so tight I don’t need starch. And, if you use worsted weight yarn and a g hook you get stiff no matter what, you may end up with a “drapier” fabric that way, but it will not necessarily produce drape.
We want every kind of drape you can think of in crochet: Solid fabric, open work, lace, swatches of all of those…what ever. Send in your photos PLEASE!
The more PROOF we have the better, and I promise a WHOLE BLOG PAGE to the results!
Remember the competition ends August 9th! I want pictures!
