    Pam's Comfort Cables CAL

    I am a very loose crocheter, so FPTR would have been way too loose for me ANYTIME! I am glad to help! Actually, I will be teaching a class here on Crochetville on cables that starts July 1st! That will be a great help if you need it!

    CGOA Masters Program Survey

    You are welcome! This masters program was just the first step! We have revamped the entire program and started with this first piece. Now we are starting to work on the next few pieces
  4. Hi everyone! This is Karen Whooley, your CGOA Secretary. I am also the Liaison to the Master’s Program Committee. We are working to improve the program and add additional Master’s Program pieces. I have created a survey to get your opinion on what you would like to see added to the program. The survey will run until July 15, 2011 so help us spread the word! Here is the link to the survey: http://kwiksurveys.com?u=CGOAMasters Each person may take the survey only one time, but you do not have to be a member of CGOA to take the survey. We are aware that there are many who are not members who do participate in the program. Thank you in advance for your help!
  5. THANK YOU!!! It didnt come up for me!!

    New Book coming out in January!

    Delta Lace is a lacy mesh made out of triangles. The greek letter delta is a triangle. That is where the word delta comes from.
  8. I am really excited to share with you my new book: Learn to Delta Lace Crochet! I have blogged about the book, and have posted separately about each of the projects in the book. You can read about it here. I will be giving away a free autographed copy in January, so be sure to keep watching the blog!

    April 2009 Sock CAL

    I completely meant to work on socks for this. I actually have the hank wound from Loopy Ewe, but Time and work got in my way. But I am hoping that even though I am not going to be successfully finishing the socks by the end of this month... I will get to them in the next month during all my travels around the area with the family! I will post when they are done!
