EtsyHooker of the Week --- Crochetgal

Antique Lace Pineapple Shawl

Crochetgal (aka Valerie) has some stunning shawls. When she photographs them like the one above, it makes me think of getting ready to take flight.

Marie, of NorthAutumnCrafts, nominated Valerie with the following comments:

Since I have joined the hookers and become acquainted with everyone Valerie has really stood out.

Valerie has an amazing talent for crochet and i love the variety in her shawls and ponchos.

She has helped me out with problems relating to Etsy and Crochet on numerous occasions and I know she has also helped several other team members. It never seems too much trouble for her and she is always so kind and friendly.

One of Crochetgal's yarn deals

Valerie is very active with the team and has even started supplying yarn for all us yarn addicts at extremely good prices.

I think Valerie deserves EtsyHooker of the Week because she is a top notch member of our team every single day and it is a pleasure to know her.

Fisherman Sweater

Crochetgal also has this incredible sweater in her shop. In her listing she mentions that she is available to do custom sweaters similar to this one for all ages as well as men and women. This is the kind of sweater that can be passed down to future generations.

What amazing work -- your detail is awesome and your picture really brings out the spectacular time and energy you put into this project. I don't work with thread but seeing your shawl makes me want to give it another go.
