So much has happened on chaincreative this year and as it draws to it's close I thought it would be fun to just take a long look back. Great crochet blogs are such a treat to find and I found some gems. From Belgium there were our friends Karlita and Veerlewith their blogs. Chaincreative travelled virtual-style to Belgium to check out their home turf and found a very inspiring buzz happening there. Veerle gave us a real insight into her technique and we count her as a real friend to this blog. The Voyages strand was so much fun to research and write and after Belgium we went to Portugal and Israel. Both countries have a long tradition of crochet and some exciting talent is out there for us to enjoy. From Portugal comes Maria with her wonderful work on Etsy under the name kjoo. Her work is stunning and constantly changing. Another great artist is from Israel. Yael is a designer in metal and this really allows us to see the versatility of crochet. Her work on Etsy is under the name of Yoola and we've done a great profile of her work and inspirations on the Visual Arts strand. Well, this is just a taster of what's available for you to browse in the comfort of your home from chaincreative. A few more choices on Friday I think and then planning meetings for 2009. Have a very wonderful beginning to this coming year and look forward to your visit in 2009.
Never happier than up to my elbows in lush fabrics, yarns and thread. The perfection of a complete piece of work or tiniest of buttonholes. Collecting crochet and knit patterns of the 1940's and '50's is my passion.
