Elisabeth Doherty, the designer behind Gourmet Amigurumi is seriously a pioneer and a goddess.  I remember back in 2005, when I first saw her work… It literally blew my mind.  At that time she did not sell patterns I spent hours, obsessing and looking at her work to see if I could, somehow make an amigurumi. At that time, the only patterns available were from Japan and amigurumi was just starting to get noticed.  Nevertheless, Beth figured it out like no one else.  A true artist, who can observe the environment and recreate it.  She was one of (or probably THE FIRST) to show us what cuteness in crochet is about.  Many tried to emulate (knock off… hum…) her work, her success, but til this day, even if many more talented amigurumi designers have indeed flourished, she still the only one I bow to.  You Rock, Beth!
