Crochet Designer: Dora Ohrenstein…I’m Hooked!

One of the joys of Ravelry is meeting new people. I recently met professional Crochet Designer Dora Ohrenstein on Ravelry. She has a wonderfully positive energy.

I will be the first to admit that I am crochet ignorant. I am not, however, closed minded. I may be unaware of what an artist is able to do, but that does not mean I assume that they are not or cannot be artists.

It is a delicate balance…you don’t want to be so open minded that your brain falls out, but you don’t want to be so closed minded that you squeeze the life out of the one you have, either.

At any rate, for those of you who knit and crochet as well, have fun looking at this site. I enjoyed looking at it, and found myself wishing I knew how to do more than single and double crochet. Like spinning, something else I wish I knew more about. In my copious free time and all that…

My husband did tell me once that it was a shame I had to work. My initial response was to call him a smart ass, but he earnestly went on to explain it is because I am so creative, he wished I could spend all my time being creative (I work part time as a nurse). Maybe someday.

Peace and Knitting, JoLene Treace
