I was pretty stoked back in July to have been contacted by a fabulous crafts columnist about an article she was writing about crochet. The article just came out (yay for crochet!), and I'm pretty googly-eyed to be quoted along with Lily Chin and Debbie Stoller. Actually, I'm totally floored.

I'm also really amused by the one quote she included (scroll all the way to the end). And I stand by it. Granny squares are great. But to really get the crochet ball rolling, let's make up some new classics, shall we? Are you game?
