BLOG TOUR for Seamless Crochet

In my hands yet another masterpiece by our beloved crochet designer Kristin Omdahl.  Kristin is never satisfied with producing one project after another. Her search for innovation and excellence, love for geometrical shapes, and the way they come together takes her this time on a journey of joining motifs as you go. Thus, seamless crochet!!  This is a cover of her new book published by Interweave Press

This shawl is called Blissful Flowers and it is divine. Kristin managed to fit the motifs perfectly and made in one piece.

I am one of the crocheters who avoided all projects that made out of little motifs that were joined together later. The thought of hiding all the ends was stopping me no matter how beautiful the design was. Thanks to Kristin I can now learn how to deal with that.

Here are more designs from this book and each one of them is very interesting and artistic. There are shawls, accessories, home decor projects, and something for little ones. The choice of motifs and colors bring these projects to the look that you want to wear, make, or just look at them.

The book is beautifully done with soft background colors. All the charts and instructions are very clear and easy to read. What can I say, just a beautiful book.

I am honored to have this book signed personally by Kristin at TNNA in January of this year at Phoenix AZ.
Learn more about this designer's work on her website and read her interview for my Designer's Studio.  

The rest of the blog tour schedule is posted here. Do not miss on seeing all of the posts on this tour. There are some awesome things go on.
