I’m excited to share that I’m going to be part of the blog tour for Imagical Seasons, a set of crochet books by Alla Koval.
The #MandalasForMarinke project now has its own dedicated page here on Crochet Concupiscence where you will find more information about the project and answers to FAQ.
The newest issue of Happily Hooked digital crochet magazine (#15) includes my article about Rebecca Monroe and how crochet has helped her.
The first monthly Artizan Made photo contest has come to its conclusion and I’m happy to see that it was a crochet contribution that won first prize!
At the end of each month I share a collection of the various things I’ve written about here and in other places all around the web. If you missed something in June, find it here. If you loved something, share this post with others!
I have been deeply impacted this morning by the news that Marinke (Wink) of A Creative Being succumbed to suicide. (See full post here.) And I feel like I need to do something. After re-reading her story in Crochet Saved My Life, mulling it over during meditative crochet and mindful walking, I’ve come up with the project. It’s called #MandalasForMarinke.
I am sitting here stunned, shocked, saddened, scared … Feeling a world’s worth of emotions that don’t have a proper place in my brain. Marinke, known to many as Wink of A Creative Being, has succumbed to the depths of depression and taken her own life.
I love looking at rainbow-colored crochet. Back in April I rounded up 60 crochet patterns and photos inspired by the rainbow. But people are releasing new rainbow hued crochet patterns all of the time so I already have 13 new ones for you here today. Enjoy!
