My family get used to me going on about
'Jilly's world'...my ideal world...of course it
mostly only exists in my head, but sometimes
my world overlaps with the real world.
Today for instance, I was reading a blog which
I had never visited before, called De Haaakerij
where Estelle blogs about her creations.
Estelle mentioned that when she was at school
she was taught crochet. Can you imagine..
double crochet on a Monday morning instead
of double maths! I would have been pedalling
so fast to get to school!
Estelle sent us a very unusual square for
The Beautiful Blogger Blanket 2013,
featuring 4 tulips! I looks like a very complicated
one to get right and Estelle has made it beautifully!
The pattern Estelle used was designed by
Dori Speigle, and it can be found Ravelry HERE
Estelle used a yarn called Nova 100% Cotton by WIBRA
Learning crochet in school obviously paid off because
there are some fantastic Dutch crocheters around.
Thank you for joining in with the
BBB2013 Estelle...and GOOD LUCK!
This gives me an idea for a little side-project...
Lets create a list of most admired crocheters
for each country... this week we can do...
Eventually we will build up a list of excellent
crocheters for each country... maybe one country
will emerge as the crochet capital of the world!
Send your nominations for DUTCH crocheters to me
in the comments section and I will create a side page
list as a resource that can be used by anyone.
They can be living /working in other countries,
but they have to be from the NETHERLANDS.
One rule... you cannot nominate yourself!
