Here is the latest in hook-related news from my side of the crochet world … Do you share any good news you have in the comments below!
Sign Up for the Crochet Concupiscence Newsletter
Crochet Concupiscence has launched a brand new monthly newsletter. It will go out once a month and signing up for it doesn’t mean you’re also signing up to be spammed.
Things in the monthly crochet newsletter will include:
- Newest big announcements from the crochet blogging community
- What I’m looking for (guest posts, people to interview, etc)
- Advertising opportunities for small businesses
- Special deals on yarn from my sponsors
I wanted to highlight something cool that Obey Crochet is doing that I’ve joined in on. It’s called Hooktopia and it celebrates the pride we have in the craft in a cheeky way. Anyone who wants to participate can take a photo of themselves with a paper that says “My name is (your name). I am a Hooker.” The photos are displayed in a slideshow on the Obey Crochet site. If you’re not familiar with this site, browse around and check out the cute crochet comic drawings there.
Crochet Mug Rug Swap
I decided to participate in the Second Annual Craft Swap by CraftSocial this year. We had to crochet mug rugs. I made two, because the first one that I made is in retro seventies colors and although I love it I didn’t know if the person I was making them for would feel the same.
