We're busy celebrating -- still -- and to add to the celebration I want to send out a few "Woot Woot's!" to my crochet pals:
First to Karen Drouin, an active member of our local CGOA Chapter. She has, I believe to be her first, published pattern featured in "Hooked on Crochet" magazine. It's called "Simply Shells Choker" and is featured on page 40! Off the top of my head, I think this makes Karen our eighth published Chapter member!! Way to go Karen!! Woot Woot!!
Second is my CGOA Associate Professional mentee, Jennifer Cirka. She also has a terrific pattern published this month, in the latest issue of Crochet World. Her pattern is called, "In Her Easter Bonnet" and is pictured on the COVER!!! You can get a sneak peek at her blog here. Awesome Jennifer, awesome!! Woot Woot!!
The third goes out to Mary Beth Temple, author of "The Secret Language of Knitters." We met at the summer CGOA Conference last year where our daughters became fast friends. Come this Monday, Mary Beth and her daughter can be seen crocheting and knitting on the Martha Stewart Show. If you go to Martha's website, click onto TV, and then onto February 25th, you can see them in the very beginning of the clip! How fantastic!! Woot Woot!!
Congratulations ladies!!! :)
