Tour Through Crochet Country! A Mention

On March 22, 2013, I was mentioned in the Crochetville’s A Tour Thru Crochet Country Blog Tour. Here is the post:

March 22: A Tour through Crochet Country

Posted by  on March 22, 2013 at 6:52 am

You’ve arrived at A Tour Through Crochet Country! During March 2013, Crochetville is hosting a daily designer blog tour in celebration of National Crochet Month. Each day, we visit the blogs of one or two crochet designers, who share something with us — a free crochet pattern or tutorial, a peek into their studio or a-day-in-the-life, a coupon code, or something else special. Join us each day for a new surprise!On our 22nd day of A Tour through Crochet Country, we’re visiting Erin Boland and Jenny King.Today’s Stop 1: Visit Erin BolandJ. Erin Boland is a crochet designer who likes to use a mix of simple stitches and uncomplicated construction, yet produce an exquisite item. Her patterns have been published in crochet magazines and Mary Maxim catalog. She learned to crochet from her grandmother, and the tradition of crochet spans many generations in her family.

Erin’s Triple-Thick Potholder looks lacy and beautiful, yet is very thick, made from three separate layers.
