Kristin's Crochet Bolero: pg 4 of Interweave Crochet!

211509-469075-thumbnail.jpgI purchased Interweave Crochet Fall 2006 at my LYS today, because I wanted to read Kim P. Werker's essay on pg 104. I know the LYSO pretty well, and she asked me if I had work featured inside. As I was flipping through, I started to say "no", only to stop myself when I got to page 4: My Crocheted Bolero was featured in a full page ad by Plymouth Yarn Company.

The croched bolero sweater is worked in Plymouth Yarn Company's Suri Merino (55% suri merino/45% extra fine merino).

Kim's essay is entertaining and inspiring. Check it out on p. 104. Kim P. Werker is the editor of CrochetMe Magazine, and author of several books on crochet.
