A huge thanks to Anna Sheldon for answering my self-interview questions to share her crochet story here with us today! When asked to describe herself in a few words, she shares that she is “sassy, playful, funny and trustworthy” which all comes through in her crochet blog Counterintuitive Knit and Crochet and probably also comes through in her work teaching others to crochet.

Beth Graham is a crochet teacher at local yarn shops in her town in Canada, and she is also an online crochet teacher through Craftsy. Her Craftsy class Fun and Fantastic Textured Crochet Stitches provides instruction to learn more than fifteen new stitch patterns that are rich in textured design. In this interview, we learn more about the class and this fabulous teacher.
I’m doing something a little different for this week’s edition of the celebration of Instagrammers who crochet. You can see all of the various contributions by visiting #crochetconcupiscence, #crochetsavedmylife, #hooktoheal and #mandalasformarinke on Instagram. But today, we’re going to honor the work of one fabulous featured crochet Instagrammer who shared an interview with us about the Weather Scarf she spent last year making, sharing it in stages with us using the community hashtags.
A little while back, one of this blog’s readers, Flo, was in the midst of working on the Sophie’s Universe crochet project and shared some of her mid-project thoughts with us in a post that I did over on About.com Crochet. She’s since completed the popular crochet project and is back with an update and some tips.
