Best Niche Crochet Blog Award
Today’s Awesome Crochet Blog Award is for the crochet blogger who does the best work in a very specific niche of crochet. En niche kan være en bestemt type hækling, ligesom Tapestry Hæklet, eller teknik i hækling, ligesom Sikringsanlæg Hæklet. Niche blogs er svært at holde op med tiden, fordi du er nødt til at have en ægte passion for en bestemt del af fartøjet for at holde blogge om det i en frisk måde på et ensartet grundlag. Den store ting for læserne er, at de ofte går mere i dybden om den niche end en generel håndværk blog ville. That’s exactly why these blogs are so important.
Om The Winner
Streetcolor is a California-based yarnbomber (who started as a team but I believe is now a solo artist). Yarnbombing combines knitting and crochet with art, public statements and sometimes non-profit work, making it a unique niche of crochet. Streetcolor started Yarnbombing in 2010 and has since done many projects and installations. She blogs about her own work as well as the work of others doing international yarnbombing. I should note that Streetcolor’s work is actually knit, ikke hækling, but the yarnbombing she shares from others includes both crafts.
3 Årsager The Winner Won
There are a lot of cool crochet blogs in various niches. I ultimately chose Streetcolor for this year’s niche crochet blog award winner because:
- She always has the latest news in her niche. In recent months I’ve noticed a slew of posts about international yarnbombing projects. I almost always find projects here I hadn’t heard of yet and often they are amazing large-scale projects that I really want to know about. For eksempel, it was here that I first found out about post-Earthquake yarnbombing in Italy.
- Streetcolor explains why her niche is important. She includes a lot of relevant information and commentary on what she’s writing about from an insider’s perspective, helping to spread the word about why yarnbombing matters to people who may not understand.
- I loved her January 2012 post on How to Take Down a Yarnbomb in case you ever need to.
