Link Love: This Week’s Top Crochet Blog Posts

This week’s most notable stuff from the crochet blogosphere:

Something Special

Have you seen the cool new project that Shannon Okey (@Knitgrrl) has launched called One Million Stitches? It’s a global collaborative fiber art project that you can join. Multiple projects will be started (wearables, blankets, etc.) and they’ll be passed from person to person on the list so each person can add a little bit of stitches to one of the items. Each project will have a notebook that travels with it so you can also add a little writing/art to that. When the items are all completely, they’ll be curated into a show and a book. Crocheters are welcome to join. Signups over on the Knitgrrl blog.

Smart Words on Crochet

Beautiful Things People are Crocheting

According to Matt is rapidly becoming one of my favorite color geniuses. I previously highlighted this blog in my roundup of beautiful crochet clocks and now I’m loving this terrific granny square button cushion.

Maybe this week I’m really into crochet pillows because I was also drawn to this one by CosmicPluto which is a blue Wool-eater square on one side and a multi-colored cute granny on the other.

I also really loved seeing this beautiful single crochet bag and I encourage you to click over to Smoking Hot Needles to see the whole process because Monika spun the yarn herself before making the bag.
