I tilfælde af du gik glip af det i sidste uge, I’ve debuted a new weekly blog feature in honor of my blog’s one year birthday. I’ll be doing posts showing what was happening on this blog one year ago to the week and offering updates on topics where I can. Let’s get started with our look back.

Hæklet Art

Ooh scandalous. The second crochet artist I ever profiled here on the blog was San Francisco’s own Jack Davis der er kendt for sin 35+ år lange karriere at gøre, og som udviser hæklede penisser. It may not be everyone’s cup of crochet tea but I am impressed by his dedication to his craft and loved researching his work. He had a show here that I missed in October (at adult shop Good Vibrations). The photo of his work at the top of this page comes from that show via Waggle Dancing.

Hæklet Books

The crochet book I enjoyed reviewing at this time last year was 100 Blomster til Strik og hækling af Lesley Stanfield. I still think it’s a good resource for crochet flower patterns. However I now also know about some other crochet flower pattern books to recommend – specifikt: Hæklet Bouquet.

Hæklet Nyheder

En ting jeg bemærkede på denne tid sidste år var, at en masse mennesker var at gøre anatomisk korrekte hæklede kropsdele ligesom hjerte og lunger. I revisited this topic later in the year when I did the birthday post for my dad on organdonation hækling.

Another thing in the crochet news at the time was that Sarah London had launched her Hækl en regnbue project to help flood victims in Australia. It called for granny squares (which I admit I intended to donate and somehow never got around to – skam på mig!) Siden da Sarah har fortsat sine hæklede indsats, launching her Granny Love crochet book recently and now running a really cool CAL for her Wool-Eater pattern.

One of my favorite regular features on this blog had an entry during this week last year: my awesome elderly crocheter series. Jeg skrev om Dora Ropchan, a 106-year-old crocheter. Her story is also published in my booklet of these stories titled Da bedstemor er ikke Hækle Hun Jagt Big Game.

Hæklet Fashion

A year ago Australian crochet swimwear designer Lisa Maree var super glade for, at ønskede at arbejde sammen med hende. Lisa Maree har fortsat med at udvide siden da. Hendes hækling arbejde er blevet set på flere berømtheder and walked the runway at Australian Fashion Week. The line has expanded to include swimwear that’s not crocheted but that still makes up the bulk of her line. Love what she’s doing!

Hæklet badetøj were hot at this time last year. Another bit of news came from who had seen their crochet swimsuits on stars including Kourtney Kardashian, Paris Hilton and Mischa Barton.

I’ve often addressed the issue of butikskæde hækling on this blog in the past year but the first time I posted anything related to the topic was the news that Topshop and Marks & Spencer both had crochet in their spring 2011 linjer. Then later in the week I noted that crochet featured heavily in the Calypso St. Barth collection for Target. Later in the year Target would get a lot of attention from knitters and crocheters when Missoni for Target went live. So many people tried to buy it up that the Target website crashed. As for me, I prefer the original Missoni lines.

Og endelig, one of my favorite crochet fashion items to date was posted during this week: Gaultier Crochet Shoes.

Hæklet Citater:

De hæklede citater, der blev vist på denne hjemmeside i løbet af denne samme uge sidste år var:

“Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep.” -Scott Adams

"Oprettelse og behandling af eksotiske garner har givet ny betydning til at tilføje fiber til min kost." – Kathy Haneke

"Hvis flere mennesker strikkede og hæklede, verden ville se færre krige og en hel masse mindre gadeoptøjer. " – Lily Chin

You know you’ve been crocheting too long when you win the lottery and spend the whole darn thing to buy Lion Brand Yarns’ stock, a sheep farm in New Zealand, and spinning lessons.”Jennie’s Crochet

And a long quote from Vickie Howell about pop culture’s influence on fashion and craft.

Crocheters på kvidre

På dette tidspunkt sidste år anbefalede jeg følgende ti crocheters på kvidre. Her er, hvad de har gang i nu:

  • @aberrantcrochetJulia Chambers is a crochet designer who is still active on Twitter.
  • @vashtirama – Vashti Braha beat me out of a Flamie in 2011 for best crochet blog. She’s got some great crochet info there and on Twitter.
  • @gocrochetDesigner Ellen Gormley remains active on her blog as well as her Twitter account.
  • @knotbygranmaI love what this fun crochet art doll maker is doing these days and mostly I stay on top of it all via Twitter.
  • @monikadesignI absolutely love the crochet stuff in the Etsy store that this crafter posts about on Twitter so I can see it icon smile One Year Ago in Crochet 1/22   1/28 I wish she had a blog!
  • @unravelmedesignTheresa Grant also has an Etsy store but is terrifically good about making sure her Twitter account isn’t just about this but also about all sorts of life and craft stuff.
  • @jaybirddesignsMostly tweets links to her Etsy store which is full of crochet goodness. She also blogs intermittently. Honestly I follow the blog more than the Tweets but that’s just a preference.
  • @hotpinkhookSadly both the blog and the Twitter account went dormant mid-year last year so I’m not really following this one anymore.
  • @hooked4lifeI adore Mary Beth Temple (I recommend her Hooked for Life crochet essay book) and continue to enjoy following her on Twitter.
  • @lbystudioI’m not sure I realized the difference between Lion Brand’s various Twitter accounts at this time last year but this one is linked to their actual New York retail store.

Here’s What I was Crocheting A Year Ago:

And I did a post about what I found to be the four simple pleasures of crochet.

What were you doing with crochet one year ago?
