  2. It continues to amaze me how the designers of today can imagine and then create their fashions of crochet art on a regular basis. BTW Doris, I just pre-ordered your new book from Amazon and will be waiting with baited breath for it to be released and to arrive in my home. The clothing on the cover is enough to make any crocheter drool!

  4. So many beautiful pieces. I’m especially fascinated by “Romantic Pineapple Shawl”. I have loved the pineapple patterns my grandma crocheted since I was a young girl. For years after I had crocheted for far too long, I decided to make my first pineapple pattern. I had previously thought that anything that lovely must be hard to do. Guess what I discovered, I loved crocheting it even more than looking at it. Thanks to all the designers…and especially to you Doris for sharing all this beauty with us.
