For today’s 2013 Awesome Crochet Blogger Awards I’d like to give an award for the best annual crochet event on a blog. This year’s crochet award goes to Jimmy Beans Wool for their Beans for Brains Scholarship.
About this Awesome Crochet Blog Award
Annual crochet events are terrific because they give us something to look forward to each year on a blog. They show a consistency in celebrating crochet year upon year. They helps us mark time in a creative way. And each annual event helps support crochet in its own way depending on what the event is. That’s worth recognizing.
Why the Winning Blog Won
I just had to recognize Jimmy Beans Wool for their Beans for Brains Scholarship. Maybe I’m inspired because I went back to school this year but I just think that this is one of the coolest things out there happening each year in crochet and knitting. The scholarship gives college money to young adults for their originality in creating crochet and knit designs. That’s a unique thing that’s really special for the crochet community!

Also About this Crochet Blog
This is a yarn store blog and it does tend to focus heavily on general yarn posts and knitting posts and I’d love to see a return to more crochet posts but it’s still a great blog for crafters. It has giveaways, reviews, news, KALs and various other yarncrafting information.
