Before we move forward into new crochet content for 2014, I want to take a look back at all of the amazing things that were shared in crochet last year. At the end of each month in 2013 I did a roundup of the posts for that month in which I highlighted a couple of my favorite crochet blog posts. Here they are all together:
I thought it was fun reporting on a crochet basics infographic posted on Visual.ly; it’s simple but it makes me happy to see crochet represented on a site that is usually tech and business heavy
I also really enjoyed putting together my Mother’s Day post of inspiring crocheting mom stories.
Sharing what I think are the 25 Best Cities for Crochet Travel
I was happy to support the Kickstarter Project for Fair Trade crochet by Cambodia Knits
If, and How, We Should Respond to Tragedies with Handmade Goods, in which I was able to think more in-depth about why we craft after a major international disaster and how we can be more intentional in our donations during these times.
I enjoyed sharing my thoughts on crochet as metaphor in a post titled Loose Ends.
I loved featuring a guest post from designer Linda Skuja filled with tips about how to ask a crochet designer for pattern support.
I loved doing an interview in May with knit and crochet designer Kristin Nicholas who had recently released a great book of knit, crochet and felt sunflower designs and projects.
I had included her book in my roundup of books to look forward to in 2013 before it had actually come out. I enjoyed doing a refreshed post of new crochet books I was/ am enjoying in late 2013 and early 2014.
20+ Mori and Harajuki Girls in Crochet. It’s fashion, art and craft in one place all pushed out through personal expression and street style.
