This journal is in the process of being moved to Blogger, and all new post about my fo's will be found there.

It's not that I don't love Livejournal, it's great, but unfortunately, it doesn't let me post any Java, slideshows or anything similar, so I just caved in and decided on the move.

So, from now on, you can find my projects in my new blog or in Ravelry. Hopefully, I'll see you there!

I found out this week that Mary Konior died on January the 16th, after being ill with Alzheimer's disease for several years. Obviously, she never knew me, but through her book Crochet Lace, she has been part of my life for the last ten years, and I'm sorry she will never know how much enjoyment she has brought me. I just hope others of her readers did have the opportunity to tell her.

In any case, here goes a little tribute to her, by means of pictures of all the shawls I've made from her book:

Lace Crochet ShawlsCollapse )

It took me nine years to get a copy of the book at a reasonable price. All my local libraries in Indiana had it (Tippecanoe, West Lafayette and Marion County), so as long as I lived in the USA, there was always a copy of the book at home. Then I moved back home to Spain, and I thought I would have to give up on it because I could not afford paying more than $100 for a crochet book. Fortunately, I managed to get a used copy from the British Amazon for about 30 pounds, which is still a bit steep, but within my budget.

There is an on-going effort right now in Ravelry to get Lace Crochet republished, so maybe this wonderful book will be preserved for the future. Let's hope it will help continue spreading the word about it and Mary Konior. If your are interested, and belong to Ravelry, you can find all the information in this discussion thread.
