For Susie – In Memoriam

on April 15, 2016

I heard some sad and unexpected news last night. Fellow Cascade Yarns designer Susie Bonell had passed away quite suddenly. Because it was so sudden, there aren’t many details to share.

I didn’t know Susie personally, but I started seeing her crochet designs for Cascade around the same time mine were being published, so I friended her on Facebook and shared several of her crochet patterns when they came out.

I’m saddened that the crochet industry has lost another creative spark, yet her memory will live on in the designs she has already published.

For a look at the crochet patterns Susie designed for Cascade Yarns, please go to this Ravelry pattern list. As for me, I think I’ll be making a couple of her hat designs for donation to Halos of Hope as a way to honor her spirit.

My hook is raised in salute, Susie. May God speed you on your way.

    Sad news. The crochet and knitting community is so large and yet when we lose one of the fold we definitely feel the ripple. RIP Susie Bonell
