Are you a reader of CrochetbyFaye, Robyn Chachula? you should be :)
Robyn has come up with a brilliant and positive response to a bummer of a situation. She, like most of us designers, have at one time or another had our work stolen or pirated. In response, she is asking for consumers to 'Adopt a Designer'. With little or no investment, show a crochet designer some love! Read all the details on her 3/2/10 post. She "adopted" the fantastic Kristin Omdahl, author of the new book Crochet So Fine.
I'm going to "adopt" someone you may not have heard of... Kimberly McAlindin!
Kimberly is doing some great work in knit and crochet. If you click on her name, it will take you to her blog. She's also a friend of crochet designer, Tammy Hildebrand, and any friend of Tammy's is a friend of mine. Her latest design just popped up in the Caron Newsletter, that you may have received yesterday. Here is the photo of Kimberly's Design, the Lobito Jacket:
