For today’s 2013 Awesome Crochet Blogger Awards I’d like to give an award for the best crochet book / book tour of the year. It goes to Robyn Chachula for her Blueprint Crochet Sweaters book and the tour it went on.
About this Awesome Crochet Blog Award
Crochet books, as I mentioned a few days ago, are a really important part of the crochet community because they provide us with information as well as inspiration. Crochet book tours help bring those books to our attention by revealing a little bit more about the book each day on different blogs.
Why the Winning Blog Won
Robyn Chachula is the author of a number of terrific crochet books. I really enjoyed seeing Blueprint Crochet Sweaters this year, a book that provides detailed advanced crochet technique information to help people understand crochet sweater construction so that they can adapt patterns to suit their own bodies.
This Blog Previously Won …
I have been following Robyn’s work since I first began exploring crochet so it’s no surprise that she’s won my blog awards in the past. In fact, she won the 2011 Awesome Crochet Blog Award for this same category for the blog tour of her book Crochet Stitches VISUAL Encyclopedia. She also won the 2012 Awesome Crochet Blog Award for Best Crochet Reviews.
Also About This Great Crochet Blog
Robyn won this crochet blog award for her book and the tour stops that it made on other people’s blogs but she also has a crochet blog of her own, Crochet by Faye. She does book giveaways in support of the books of other crafters and these include great information such as interviews with the author. She also provides updated news about her designs, where she’s been published, what she’s working on and what it’s like in general to be a busy designer.
