Here are all of the crochet posts on this blog that happened in September 2013, organized neatly with links for your perusal so you can make sure you didn’t miss anything in crochet art, fashion, news, books, patterns, inspiration and more.
My favorite post to write this month was If, and How, We Should Respond to Tragedies with Handmade Goods. It gave me the opportunity to think more in-depth about why we craft after a major international disaster and how we can be more intentional in our donations during these times.

I did a guest post series over on Lion Brand Yarn about prayer shawls and was so touched by the many comments that were posted there sharing the power of intentional crafting as both a crafter and as a recipient of a handmade gift.
I did an article about young crochet artist Ikea Vandross that was published in the Fall 2013 issue of Interweave Crochet.
I’m continuing to do guest posts on Crochet Today such as my roundup of pirate crochet suggestions for Talk like a Pirate Day earlier this month.
And I want to give some special thanks to September’s blog sponsors: Crochet Happy, Bar-Maids, Moogly Blog, Crochet4MyButterfly and Nothing but String. Sponsors get lots of goodies; check it out here. Here are a couple of my sponsor posts from this month:
