Remember when I said I could sort of crochet? Ha! I have just found out that I did not even know the meaning of the word. That is not usually the case by the way. I always thought I had a relatively good vocabulary. Truly! I play scrabble (I once got a double triple score with Jonquils!) and can do the New York Times crossword puzzle! (Ok, not in pen, but still!)
I did a post a few days back about a Cape Cod sign. And I got to thinking again about how much I love the Cape and how much I miss visiting. I know it’s all changed and grown and probably nothing at all like I remember, except in the wild bits like the beaches way out in Truro. Or maybe it isn’t “way out in Truro” anymore at all.
So, with Cape Cod on the brain I searched Etsy today and found Annie Briggs, who resides on the Cape. She has a very happening shop on Etsy. She also has a lovely website chock full of information. It was here that I read her Bio and suffice to say that I felt a kind of kinship with her.
So today’s blog is about Annie’s items, which she lovingly makes by hand and are probably the most stunning representation of crocheting I have ever seen. Like, ever.
First is her Shimmering Cotton Tunic which whispers romance and femininity.
After goggling at this for about three minutes, I then proceeded to find her Cropped Jacket, which is smart and flirty and perfect with just about anything.
Remarkable, no? There is a level of professionalism here that I don’t feel I can articulate properly. As silly as it sounds when I say I can only make blankets that don’t require any pattern because the patterns read like Greek, it really is true. I believe this level of craftsmanship is amazing.
