This Week’s Crochet Link Love

Hey folks … I’m offline this weekend because I’m away camping. That means I won’t get a chance to spread the word about this post. If you see something you like here, please share the post with others!

Here are my favorite posts this week from around the crochet blogosphere.

Something I’m Loving

This isn’t crochet specific but it may appeal to all of you creative folks. I’m absolutely loving watching the full length Craft in America videos online via Iowa Public Television. Here’s part one of episode seven, which is on thread art:

Watch Episode VIII: Threads on PBS. See more from Craft in America.

Smart Words on Crochet

Crochet Interviews

  • Interview with a Yarnbomber. @lionbrandyarns shared an interview with yarnbomber Jessie Hemmons who was recently commissioned to decorate The Philadelphia Museum of Art for their exhibit on crafting.

Crochet Reviews

  • Bavarian Twist Crochet Book Review. JD @CraftGossip did a review of an Annie‚Äôs Attic book, Learn To Do Bavarian Crochet. Bavarian Crochet has been hot lately, one of those old styles of crochet that seems to have gotten new interest.

Other Stuff

  • Did you see that @crochetlibfront tried to crochet cheese this week? The woman has crocheted bacon in the past so it shouldn’t be a surprise that she’d try something else like this!
  • And @oleknyc struck again recently with some crochet-bombed strollers which I saw thanks to @boweryboogie
  • Blocking in progress. I liked the post from Spanish blog @CheCrochets that shows the before, during and after of blocking motifs for bunting.
