  1. I undertook several rugs in 2013, too, but didn't bring freeform thoughts to their creation. This is an inspiration! I love how painterly it is, something to look at again and again! Delightful eye candy. Thanks for sharing.
  2. More great structure in the service of beauty. This looks regal and warm!
  3. Love this structure -- such a wonderful design in that it is collar, capelet and neckewarmer. The buttons make it easy to remove. Another brilliant creation of functional adornment!
  4. Gorgeous work. Love the cabled tree on the back! You are such an inspiration! Thanks for sharing the wonder and beauty.

  11. I just got a set of knook hooks from eBay and as soon as i finish my current tests and commitments, I will try it. I think there are others who want to try this technique. Earlier this year I taught myself the basics of crohooking and made a couple of pieces. I love it, as I am generally monochromatic, and this pushed me to combine colors.
  12. There's a Fisherman Crochet for Babies book for sale on ebay- great price.
  13. My advice is to test your three favorites with your target audience/customers. I've seen so many names that make me cringe and others that are so alien to their purpose/enterprise as to undo it. The purpose of the name is represent you and communicate to potential customers something about your offerings. I would avoid corner, closet, nook, shelf, barn, farm, house, attic, kitchen, garden, yard, -- these are overused and limiting.
  14. Tituswoman -- gee! thank you! Monique: thanks!
