>Thought that might get your attention! 🙂
This could rank as the coolest thing that ever happened to any of my crochet designs. And to think it’s all Jan’s fault. Jan, an online friend from Ravelry.com and one of the most energetic and dedicated members of the posse, and her group of wildly creative (and just plain wild) fiberazzi in Northern UK, the Knitting Noras, have gone where few have dared. Following in the tradition of the Calendar Girls, the Noras have produced a 2010 naked knitting calendar. That news in itself would be totally brilliant. But just take a look at the cover (un-cover) garment.
Yup. I did a double-take… it’s the Caron Crochet Lacy Duster. I admit, I’m not used to seeing it worn quite this way, but WOWSERS! I totally approve. Jan not only crocheted this duster plus many other garments for the shoot, but she herself graces the calendar as Miss November.
The calendar is available for order and the proceeds will benefit the Christie Cancer Hospital. I can’t wait to get mine. Cheers for Jan and the Noras! Brava!
>Thank you so much for mentioning our calendar. It was your design that has made our front cover. With a little help from Linda's fabulous figure of course.You know that I am one of your devoted posse as I love your designs in fact my friends joke that I am a Chanette (their word for a Doris Chan groupie)If I am crocheting anything other than your patterns they say – what not a Doris design?Looking forward to your next book.
>Hi Doris, Just wanted to say thank you for mentioning our naked knitting antics on your blog – so glad you like it! We think your designs look fabulous on our gorgeous naked knitters!

>I love the Lacy Crochet Duster I made for myself!! Never thought of wearing it like that before. Hmmm, that inspires me to drop those last few pesky baby-weight pounds!! LOL!! Have a great day! :o) Haley
>That is so totally cool. I'm going to blog about your post about this calendar and I'm going to buy it. So, so cool. :)By the way, I just found your blog through Google Reader's recommended blogs tab and I think it is great from what I've read so far! I love to crochet and your designs look absolutely beautiful!
