First off, credit where credit is due, the lovely Shari White came up with that title.
If you have never met Lily Chin you haven’t really lived. She is an amazing teacher who knows crochet, knitting and design backwards as well as forwards.
Her classes are not for the faint of heart, she covers a lot of material and your brain will be firing with loads of ideas…whether you are a designer or just love to crochet. But if you want to learn the ins and outs of crochet (or knitting) take a class with her.
If she isn’t teaching a class in your area, find her books. Her “Couture Crochet Workshop” is one of my very favorites, both informative and inspiring. And her Crochet “Tips and Tricks” book is full of information that even experienced crocheters can benefit from.
The other thing Lily can be is a complete riot. At Chain Link in Manchester this year she was toting around the most outrageous bag I had ever seen. So I said I had to get a photo of it. In response she gave me the pose in this photo. We were all laughing so hard that it is a miracle that I got a shot that wasn’t blurry.
Lily’s bag is named Hairy, it has a middle name too…but I’m too bashful to repeat it here for all my innocent readers. If you figure it out on your own you are clearly not as innocent as you’ve been leading me to believe.
Tomorrow I will share with you some pictures of my loot from the marketplace. I was pretty darn busy with the Design Competition stuff, so that slowed down my shopping. Of course I still managed to do some damage to my budget anyway.
