About this Awesome Crochet Blog Award
Crochet-alongs are important in the crochet blogging community because they encourage prticipation in that community, teach new crochet skills, introduce crocheters to each other online and inspire crafters of all levels.
Why the Winning Blog Won
MemeRose won this crochet blog award this year because I thought the owl CAL was really unique and fun. There were many other great CALs that I followed along with vicariously throughout the year but I felt like this one was simple enough for a lot of people to do, original in terms of the design and yet also right on trend because owls are so popular in crafting right now. The blogger designed the owl used in the CAL and I love that the base of it used a stitch we don’t see enough – moss stitch. Plus this is a short three-part CAL so it didn’t require a huge commitment and is something that could be done as a regular pattern outside of the CAL with ease.
This Blog Previously Won …
I have been following MemeRose’s crochet blog for a long time even though she hasn’t won one of my Awesome Crochet Blog Awards until now. She had actually made the short list in the past; (I think it was for best use of color, a popular category that I always have too many choices for!) With only about 30 awards given out each year it’s hard to cover everyone but I’m really happy to be able to feature this blog this year because she does really beautiful work.
Also About This Great Crochet Blog
The cute crochet owl design is a great reflection of the beautiful work that MemeRose does. This blogger, as I mentioned, makes really great use of color in her crochet work, and that makes her crochet blog really fun to look at! Sadly, after two and a half years of blogging this blogger has decided now to stop blogging and direct her energy to other creative endeavors. Despite this, I think her archives are a treasure trove of crochet work that is worth looking through if you have a chance!
