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!

CLF Member Ms. Busyfingers proves lace and drape.

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!

Happy Holidays CLF

This is the week of turkey eating in the US of A. And I for one am looking forward to making all of the holiday fare…mostly for the left overs, because I love nothing more than an open face turkey/stuffing and gravy sammich….OOOOOOOOh lalala….

Anyway…For the holidays I have a gift for the Crochet Lovers of the WORLD….our book is now only $24.50 at the Crochet Liberation Front Website!. This includes shipping.

I’ve fixed the paypal button to exclude shipping charges (we had a little glitch, it’s all better now 🙂 )

Happy Holidays from me to you!

I’m also gonna be at Pinch Knitter’s Yarn Store in Stanwood Wa this Friday from 12-4 signing CLF books for interested parties….and if no one is there, I’m gonna show them stick users what cables really can be 🙂 WHOOT.

See ya there!
