Crocheter of the Month – November

November 28, 2009

Baaad Anna’s is pleased to announce the crocheter of the month. Tricia Ward has been a faithful member of our wed. evening stitch ‘n’ bitch, sometimes as the only fearless crocheter.

She is also making her debut as a crochet/knit pattern designer.  Her crocheted food and sweets patterns are AMAZING. Honestly I think I cried the first time I ever saw the banana – it was so amazing. I look forward to every Wednesday just to see the new designs she had come up with!

Not only has Tricia developed something adorable and practical (the kids in your life will LOVE playing with these!) But she is creative and ingenious in her design.

Congrats Tricia you are the Crocheter of the month (come on in and pick up your gift certificate!).

Baaad Anna’s will also be selling Tricia’s patterns for the cupcakes, sweets and strawberries. To see more of Tricia’s designs, check out her blog  at Play With String.
