Crochet article by Dora Ohrenstein

"Summer is Crochet Season" is a wonderful, crochet-positive article about yarn companies that are featuring crochet patterns and crochet support. Some of the companies mentioned in Dora's article are Tahki•Stacy Charles, Universal Yarn, Nashua Handknits, Garn-studio/DROPS Design, and Caron International. I LOVE the crochet designs on the Garn-studio/DROPS Design website, I've drooled over many for years, it's time that I selected one and actually made it! I feel that Caron has recently come into the crochet world with it's manufacture and support of the NatuallyCaron products Country and Spa. Some of the designers mentioned - Doris Chan, Vashti Braha and Kristin Omdahl! I've made a summer top with Spa and absolutely love it. I'm trying to decide on another project with this fiber.

Universal Yarns is developing a pattern line with Mary Beth Temple, to be called Hooked for Life, the name of her recent book. The article includes a photo of a mesh-y cardigan in raspberry worn over a white, raspberry print dress,...to die for!
This should be a fabulous line, I can't wait to see the designs.

The article includes links to many of the websites, so I'm off to shop, and drool over patterns!
