Today I wanted to talk to you about an artist who uses crochet a lot in her work: Joana Vasconcelos. I discovered this French-born Portuguese artist back in 2012, when I went to visit the palace of Versailles with my aunt and my cousin.
Once we were all there, we were taken to a meeting room that made us all green with envy: walls lined with a ball of each yarn made by the DMC Group, which consists of DMC itself, Sirdar (and its sub-brands, like Sublime and Hayfield) and Wool and the Gang
It is a very pleasant book to own. As I work mainly with graphs and tend to ignore written instructions, I cannot guarantee that my copy is 100% error-free but I checked the keys of all 30 mandala charts and everything seems to be correct!
On this day 4 years ago I was giving my first crochet lesson. I love doing this more and more with each lesson I teach. I am eternally grateful to the people who have made this possible along the way.
