CLF NEWS: 2010 Crochet Award Nominees for Best Designer (Accessories)

Voting has begun with a bang! It’s so much fun to watch the voting from my end of the internet, in fact there are some very close races between brands and designers, it will be interesting to see how it all pans out! You can make your vote count by going to http://www.surveymonkey.com/2010Flamies !

In the mean time enjoy some more pretty pictures of examples of designers work! Now, I will remind you that these are just one photo each are not representative of the designers entire work! So to see more go to their pages on Ravelry.com or browse the internet.

Also, if there is someone you want to see nominated next year that wasn’t this year, make sure you join the CLF and make your nominations for next year’s awards! Nominations are taken through out the year from Crochet Liberation Front members and then the voting is made open to the public. There’s no grumbling allowed, you like a design or a designer than nominate them. It doesn’t have to be anyone well known, especially since this industry is made of so many people and many talents go unsung, so go for it in the future, make your favorites known in time for the nominations!

These are the nominees for Best Designer (Accessories)

Jennifer Bensen nominated for her collection of shawls and scarves  

Eclat Du Soleil nominated for her collection of shawls

Danielle Kassner for her collection of wristlets, mittens and socks

Kristin Omdahl for her collection of wraps & shawls

Drew Emborsky for his collection of handbags & hats

Linda Permann for her collection of accessories and jewelry

Remember these awards are not paid for by yarn companies, publications or other industry insiders, the CLF foots the bill, so please stop by our website order a T-shirt or bumper sticker, get your copy of the ground breaking CLF First Ever Book or better yet, sign up for our retreat!

For those men in our lives that are just hard to figure out what to crochet for I offer you these gorgeous crocheted moccasin slippers!

Made by Crochetgrl on Ravlery.com using a pattern by Sue Norrad these fetching (size 10) slippers look suave, warm and cozy!

They shouldn’t take too long to make, so if you have been agonizing over what to make HIM, then take a stab at these. Using Lion Brand Suede it should work up fast, and the yarn is pretty easy to come by!
