Convertible Crochet by Doris Chan

I really should thoroughly digest Doris Chan's new book, Convertible Crochet, before I post about it, but there is just too much you need to know RIGHT NOW.

:)  I got my gorgeous copy yesterday in the mail. On Doris' blog TODAY is a post where you can enter to win a copy. She also gives you much insight into the madness behind the method that is multi-dimensional garments from motifs.

Also TODAY, Doris is doing a live chat on Ravelry at 10:00pm tonight on her group. So, that's immediately after my live chat in my group from 9pm (EST)-10:00 Where we will talk about anything random.

She takes motifs to the Ninja level and converts them into draping 3-D garments. Everything from the humble squares to octagons and pentagons, and don't forget my favorite... hexagons.

I'll be seeing Doris at TNNA where she will be doing a book signing in June. I've already put in my request to try on her lovely Phoebe Shrug:

And also from the new book... The Titan Top


And now, you are up to date on what you need to know TODAY. :)
