About this Awesome Crochet Blog Award
Although video tutorials are really important, they don’t work for everyone who wants to learn crochet stitches, techniques and patterns. Some of us just don’t learn best that way and so do better with written tutorials supplemented with photos. The bloggers who take the time to create these tutorials for us should be rewarded!
Why the Winning Blog Won
CreJJtion has done some great written crochet tutorials in the past year, offered for free on her blog. Her instructions are clear. I love that she supplements them with information on why she chose to do things the way that she did. And it helps that she takes amazing pictures that inspire you to want to try your hand at what she’s making. Some favorite examples of her tutorials: crochet potholders and edging for crochet baskets.
This Blog Previously Won …
Although I’ve been following this lovely crochet blog for awhile this is the first year that I’ve awarded it one of my Awesome Crochet Blogger Awards. There are only about thirty awards given each year and there are so, so many great crochet blogs out there that I can’t always recognize them all. I’m happy to draw some attention this year to this terrific crochet blog.
Also About This Great Crochet Blog
Although it’s the crochet tutorials that I’ve recognized on the blog, there are many other great things this blogger does well, too. Something I really love is that she shares where her inspiration comes from and then shows the work that she’s creating in crochet based on that inspiration; see her post on Simply Haken magazine for an example. She also includes beautiful photography and I happen to be a huge fan of the color choices she uses in her own crochet work.
