Crochet Flamie Award Nominees for 2010

To see this years

Front website  

It's that time of year! I was awarded the Flamie award for "Best Crochet Pattern of the Year" in 2008 for my book, Crochet That Fits. I found out I had won while I was recuperating in the hospital after having emergency esophagus surgery. I was in the hospital for 16 days (March 09') and Mary Beth Temple had to interview me on "Getting Loopy", while I was on Morphine and in my hospital gown! I was a little nervous to be live on the air, while on medication, but was thrilled for the great honor. I believe my book won because of the new method I came up with that shows you how to make fitted, shaped, & flattering crochet garments and accessories without having to use any increases or decreases. I called it my Graduated Stitch Method. There are people all over the country (and world) writing me almost daily saying they made a garment for the first time ever and it was easy and fits perfectly. This is what the book is all about and it thrills me!
