Lisa has also included thoughtful gifts in a hat, scarf, cowl, and fingerless mitts that will warm hearts as well as heads, necks, and fingers.

Born in Germany and raised by nuns in a Catholic church, Lisa Gentry has been a fleet-fingered crocheter since the age of six, when she learned crochet in school. Lisa now lives in Louisiana on a beautiful lake, and her fingers are still flying through yarn. Lisa meets with a lively group of fellow crocheters who share new ideas, techniques, and supplies. She also teaches crocheting at the local library. Lisa’s design career started in 2004 when she sold her patterns on Ebay. In 2005 she sat down in a craft store and crocheted her way into the Guinness database with an average time of 170 sts per minute. Since then, she has been tapped to create designs for popular yarn companies and her patterns have appeared in several magazines, and published almost 20 books. Besides crocheting she loves to work in her flower garden, vegetable garden, cook, bake, and have fun in the lake.
