Last month one of the crochet artists that I featured on the blog was Jo Hamilton. I am completely dumbfounded by her stunning ability to create realistic-looking portraits of people using crochet. I wish that I could see them in person, which is why I wish that I could go to New York in May. If you happen to be in the area, be sure to check out her Faces show, which is going to be up all of May in two different Cafe Grumpy locations.
Here are the details from her website:
Jo Hamilton will be showing a selection of her crochet portraits at two New York locations this coming May:
