KCBW: Looking Back, Looking Forward in Crochet

Today is the final day of the 5th Annual Knit and Crochet Blog Week hosted by Eskimimi Makes.

Today’s Crochet Blog Week Prompt

“If you took part in last year’s Knitting & Crochet Blog Week, look back on your Day Seven post. Did any of the techniques, ideas and hopes for the last 12 months that you wrote about at that time ever make it onto the hook or needles? Did anyone cast on and complete the project researched in last year’s Day 2 post?

And there is also time to look forward again: One year from now, when the 6th Knitting & Crochet Blog Week rolls around, where do you hope your crafting will have taken you to? What new skills, projects and experiences do you hope you might have conquered or tried? Do you have any wishes for your blogging that you’d like to follow?”

Looking Forward in My Crochet


I didn’t actually participate last year. Things got too hectic and I couldn’t make it happen, although I always love blog week and promoted it around the web widely last year. That’s okay, because this past year was really a year that required meditative crochet more than innovative crochet. I made a lot of crochet granny square blankets and a lot of crochet shrugs and that worked for me.

But looking forward I do have some hopes for the new year. The main thing is that I want to work more on freeform crochet and mixed media crochet art. I want to get further along with my crochet self-expression and with real play when it comes to creating in crochet, rather than doing only the meditative work (although that’s important, too).

I also plan to have my next book, Hook to Heal, out this year.

And I look forward to seeing everyone else develop their skills and projects on their blogs and their social sites!
