And some thanks from this month:

I said thanks before but I want to say it again …

Thanks to @mooglyblog who said (when sharing her awesome crochet blog award):

“Kathryn at Crochet Concupiscence is one of my blogging idols – it’s her example that first got me thinking about crochet blogging, and she’s been a wonderful encouragement and inspiration. Thank you so much Kathryn!”

Thanks (and congrats) to @UCrafter for sharing on her crochet blog that I’d awarded her the 2013 Most Awesome Crochet Blog Award for Best Crochet Interviews and that she was also chosen by AllFreeCrochet as one of their 100 Favorites: The Most Popular Free Crochet Patterns of 2013 and named one of their favorite crochet bloggers. She shared links to her interviews with me here and here, and said, “find out more about what I love about her blog here.” She mentioned that she loves the awards as well as these weekly link love posts and she shared specific links to some of her favorite crochet interviews on her site. Check it out!

Thanks to Stitch and Unwind, All Free Crochet and Prime Publishing for sharing the info about my Awesome Crochet Blog Awards. Stitch and Unwind was the winner of the Best Crochet Pattern Roundups 2013.

Thanks to @theradder for linking to me in the beautiful post that she shared recently on crochet art. She included some terrific photos I’d never seen before of creative crochet from artists I love including the piece above by Ernesto Neto. Great stuff.

Thanks to @lionbrandyarn for featuring my article on Crafting Through Cabin Fever. I would love to have people pop on over there and share some comments about how crochet or knitting helps you through bad weather times. They also quoted me in their Yarncraft Resolutions article where I said that in 2014 “I want to play more with free-form crochet, try techniques I’ve never done and push my crochet writing in new ways.”

Thanks to @spunkysheryl of Unchained Crochet for sharing Crochet Saved My Life and mentioning Crochet Concupiscence on her blog.

Thanks to @GardenChefsNP for linking to my Top 10 Free Crochet Patterns for Barefoot Sandals in showcasing the crochet barefoot sandals she’s making.

Thanks to @okmills for saying of Crochet Concupiscence on Twitter: “Your blog is a cornucopia of craftiness, art and color.” Check out how they’re revitalizing the American knitwear industry.

Thanks to Grammy Dirlam for sharing a link and support of my 2012 article offering advice for a budding crochet designer.
