About this Awesome Crochet Blog Award
Photography can make or break a blog these days. Beautiful images make us want to look longer at the blog, encourage us to feel more inspiration, provide us with the details we’re looking for when viewing craft projects online and also create the desire to share more on social media sites. Blogs that are providing us with great crochet photography definitely deserve recognition.
Why the Winning Blog Won
Greedy for Colour offers everything I love when it comes to photos on a crochet blog: a large size format, many photos in each post, richness of color, a strong editing eye, close-up details where necessary and an inspirationally unique take on things (check out, for example, the choice to blur the focus on these crochet vessels so that the front one stands out). I love the little stories she sometimes creates with her crochet photography. Her photography of crochet is so great that she even uses it to make really cool cards; check out the sneak peak of her Christmas cards here.
This Blog Previously Won …
I haven’t previously included this blog in my annual awards roundup but I’ve been following this blog for a long time, linking to it periodically, and have always enjoyed it. Each year there are only about 30 blogs that get these awards so I can’t get to everyone (especially in the photo category where there are always several people that make the cut!) but I’m happy to be able to recognize the great work of this blog this year.
Also Awesome on this Crochet Blog
I love the photography on this blog but that’s not all that I like here. Some other great things about this blog include:
- Easy-to-follow craft tutorials; check out her mini hot air balloon crochet tutorial
- Insights into her personal life and interests such as books she’s reading and family things
- Lots of bold colors in her crochet and other craft work; I love great use of color!
