When I completed my first-ever design back in October 2010, I decided to show it to my fellow members of Off the Hook Crochet Guild. Everyone was impressed; Kate said I should enter the design for the annual CGOA Design Competition. I was incredulous, for my perception of the design competition was that it was the domain of professional designers, plus I didn't have a pattern written. Kate assured me the competition was open to all CGOA members, and a pattern isn't a requirement. (I'm still working on what would be the best way to write the pattern for the design.) I'm forever grateful to Kate for suggesting I enter the competition, and to the judges for bestowing me this honor!
