My Customers Are Talented People #1

 Gordana's amazing granny square cardigan

I've been running my yarn shop / crochet studio for 6 months now, and boy! It has been an incredible and exciting experience! I've met tons of people, and connected with many artists, designers, various craftspeople. Several have become good friends. And I love that - I love the amazing exchange of creative energy, sharing ideas and sourcing inspiration.
My customers love sharing pictures of their work made with yarn they bought from the shop, and I on the other hand, re-share them on my shop's Facebook page. The benefit is mutual and rewarding. 

Today I am sharing some of them here. The above cardigan is made with cotton yarn - a mix of several cotton brands, and it is a true eye-candy! Gorde also shares my love for the grannies and she delightfully plunged into this tremendously time-consuming, but highly satisfying project. The result is mesmerizing! Granny squares will never get out of fashion!

Slavica is just starting to learn crochet (she works with quilling and decoupage), but her mother (who is in her 70s) rediscovered the joys of crochet and made these amazing shawls lately.
Anita has been a regular since the beginning and has made from home decor to garments, but I am sharing her latest pocket shawl. 

I hope you too get inspired by these beauties!
