CLF member Hapikamper shows us that indeed texture and drape work!
Ok, I agonized, I tossed, and I turned. It was so hard to decide who won the competition! All of the examples were excellent! Thank you to all who entered the competition! Many of those entries can be seen on our new blog page: Crochet & Drape.
Without further ado…The first place winner of the Baby Got Drape Competition (and recipient of our First Ever Book) is: Leslie P. aka Hapikamper!
Her Copenhagen Jacket is really fabulous! It shows that a solid, and textured stitch pattern can indeed be drapey!
Congratulations Lelsie, this is a wonderful example of drape!
My second pick (and recipient of a CLF T-shirt), is by Sarah C. aka Ms. Busyfingers, who used a Merino/Silk yarn that she dyed with Lichen to make this goreous dress. She designed the dress inspired by Angela Best’s Teal Leaves Sweater. She used a 3.5 mm hook with the above mentioned sock yarn!

Thank you to all of those who submitted photos! It was hard to choose winners, because each entry was fabulous! Your wonderful work is on it’s own page now!

Ok, crocheters, hookers, babies, dears: Listen up.
We need more of a web presence. Don’t leave it all up to your beloved folks on the blogosphere, and on twitter…Come out, come out where ever you are: Stand up loud and proud, be counted.
I mean really it’s not that big a deal. Get a Twitter account, and tweet away about your pretty projects and fun things. I would love you to outnumber the weirdos selling weird things with not real photos of “models” (or porn stars, at least that is what they look like to me)… Join and then follow me, I’ll follow you I promise and we can sing great crochet music online together! I’m Camanomade on Twitter as well as on Ravelry.com.
