Favorite Video of the Week

Several blogs this week highlighted the great life-size crochet lions done for The Olympics by crochetdermist Shauna Richardson. It’s been more than a year since I first mentioned this project here on the blog and now it’s done, after eighteen months of work and 36 miles of wool.

  1. WOW is not a big enough word to describe Shauna Richardons art work!!! This was the first I had heard/seen her. Thank You so much for sharing her with us. Everything about her is amazing…

    • @65mary65 Thanks Mary! I’m so glad that you were able to learn about her. She does truly amazing crochet work. She’s gotten a lot of attention because of the lions, which are definitely awesome, but I also really love the work that she was doing prior to this big project. It’s all impressive!
