Minuet a beautiful summer project!

CLF Member Vashtirama (aka Vashti Braha) does it again with this gorgeous design! Now, granted there’s no pattern yet, because as per her ravelry.com page, Vashti  was experimenting and fell in love with the stitch pattern. The resulting garment is GORGEOUS. I can’t wait to see what else happens from this “experiement”!

She offers us several views of said garment

                                                                   

I think this is just beautiful and inventive!  I could see this piece working out gorgeously in a linen (I see you weren’t happy with the yarn you used for this project Vashti, oh yes I did indeed read your project notes, linen might work out great though!)

Vashti I duly award thee my Hookalicious award for beautiful and inventive crochet! Great summer inspiration!

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.
