EtsyHooker of the Week --- CapeCodConsignments

Smittens or Lovers Mittens Crochet Pattern PDF

Sandy, of CapeCodConsignments, is our EtsyHooker of the Week. With patterns like these smittens, you can see why her fellow hookers love her so much. Three fellow teammates had lovely things to say about her.

Doris, of Honey Bee Crochet, had this to say about her:
She has a lovely shop with the most adorable baby items, very colorful and well made
She is a great fellow team mate who helps me with questions I have or just lends her support by including me in her many Treasuries that she makes for the Hookers team. Not only is she my fellow team mate, but I'm her customer too and have purchased cotton yarns from her and every transaction was a very pleasant experience.
She is an all around lovely person to work with, a great team member and friend. (Did I mention she builds a lot of Treasuries for the EtsyHookers team?)

PDF Fluffy Bunny Hat Crochet Pattern for Infants to Adults

Be sure to click the photo above to see the listing for this bunny hat. Sandy has an adorable baby photo in her listing, but since we are surprising her I did not want to post the baby photo without permission. This hat would be absolutely adorable for Easter time, especially.

Nora, of NoraDora, seconded the nomination with these words:
I too have had transactions with Sandy and she is a very caring person always willing to help. She is the Queen of Treasuries and always lets you know when she included you in one of them. We are so fortunate to have Sandy join our team ...a real team player! and Yes...the items in her shop are AWESOME!

Infant Firefighter Bootie

For those who do not crochet, Sandy also has lovely items for sale, such as the fireman booties as well as giraffe and bear coccoons, infant hats, chokers, and home decor items.

Deja, of JacquiJCrochet, wrote:
I agree with nominating Sandy. I have bought her patterns and they are great!! Plus she has great treasuries that she features fellow members in constantly.

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.
