Design Inspiration from the Crochet Dude

August 27th, 2009

Recently, I was at the Knit & Crochet Show up in Buffalo, and I got to chat with popular blogger the Crochet Dude, Drew Emborsky, who came all the way from Austin, TX and was gracious enough to tell us about his design inspiration in this week’s YarnCraft episode. Want to listen to our interview for yourself? Click here to launch the episode [MP3].

Drew has a new line of small pattern books out with Leisure Arts, some of the patterns of which I got to see at the show. I especially love the handbag book, featuring projects in vibrant and easy-care Vanna’s Choice (I saw a great green tote on the runway of the Knit & Crochet show fashion show that I adore), as well as a collection of quick crochet dishcloths (great gift items) in fashionable colors of Cotton-Ease. TheseĀ  dishcloths are almost too pretty to be used!
