FINALLY !! I've been looking for 'artistic' work to do in crochet (as well as modern household items, cardigans, sweaters, tanks, skirts). Not all hookers want to make knic-knacs, baby blankets or floppy hats. Thank Carol Alexander's newsletter for the link to your website.

I made one of these for each of my teenage sons for gifts. I hope they like them as much as I do.

Dude, I've learned over the (I won't mention how many!) years that anything you've designed is worth at least a second look - thanks for all the wonderful designs you've posted!!!!!!
