Wiggly Crochet Dishcloths Blog Tour Stops 1 & 2

If you missed the first stop of my Wiggly Crochet Dishcloths blog tour on Feb. 13th, you can still read what Brett Bara wrote on her Facebook page that day. Brett is a super talented lady who wears many hats (and her cat, Fifi, is adorable!!!). You can read her blog and see photos of what she’s up to (and Fifi) on her website. Brett is currently the host of the Knit and Crochet Now show on PBS. Brett was the first editor of Crochet Today magazine for many years. I tech edited for Crochet Today for several years before I met Brett at a CGOA Conference in Manchester, NH. She’s just as nice in person as she looks in her photos!!! Brett is putting on a full day of craft classes called the Brooklyn Craft Camp on Saturday, March 16th in Brooklyn (where else?). I wish I lived closer so I could attend!!! Here’s a photo of Brett, in case you haven’t gotten acquainted with her yet:

Today’s stop on the Blog Tour is with Kathryn White. Kathy is a very talented crochet designer who has won numerous awards in the CGOA Design Contest in the last 2 years. She’s also a really good friend of mine. We met at the CGOA Conference in Greensboro, NC in Sept. 2011. We quickly became friends and learned that we lived only 130 miles apart! We see each other every month when Kathy drives up here to attend the monthly crochet group that I’ve attended for many years. You can read more about Kathryn White on her blog, her website and her Facebook page. Kathy is a very accomplished thread crochet designer in the crochet world. She’s a great source of inspiration for me! Here’s a photo of Kathy (on the left), the famous Rita Weiss (in the middle) and me (on the right) at the fashion show/dinner at the CGOA Conference last year in Reno, NV:

    I love the look of bullions but they are so aggravating and I always end up not doing them.

  2. Susan says:

    Kathy,

    I’m sorry that you have difficulty with bullions. I was fortunate to take a freeform crochet class taught by Prudence Mapstone at the CGOA Conference in Greensboro, NC in 2011. Prudence showed us her hints for making bullions easier! If you’re ever able to take a class from Prudence, you won’t regret it!

    Kathryn White is another expert on bullions!

    I’d love to see a book that teaches how to successfully make bullions! Does anyone have a book to recommend for making bullions easier?

    I remember making wiggly crocheted hot pads – in my BEGINNING crochet class about 40 years ago – I have been searching for this pattern now for years… THANKS to you I will be able to make them again…
