It all started [again] with a "one little Winnie the Pooh for a friend's grandchild as a Christmas gift."
Reading the profile for the EtsyTwitter Team Shop of the Week, crochetgal, I just had to smile when I got the that line.
One of my favs from her shop is this Lace Butterfly Shawl...made me think of the flutterby from Winnie the Pooh.
And look at this amazing Shrug! The detail is amazing and it has a bit of a vintage feel with the 3/4-sleeve and the oversized collar.
Crocheted Serendipity Shrug, Balsam with Metallic, custom ordered
From her profile:
Although I learned the art of crochet as a teenager in the 70s, it fell by the wayside as my life adventure took its path.
It resurfaced again at the start of the new millenium with one little Winnie the Pooh for a friend's grandchild as a Christmas gift. Before Winnie could even be delivered to that little one, friends were asking to purchase them from me. Little did I know that it would eventually turn into a small business. Within a few years, I was trying various methods of crochet, along with different pattern designs and before long I was actually designing a few simple pieces.
