It’s the third week of my new series Dette år, Sidste år, Året før i hækling. Lad os se på hækling nyheder fra januar 14 – Januar 20.
This Week in 2011 Hook
The big news for this blog during this week of 2011 var … The blog was born! Crochet Concupiscence just celebrated its second birthday on January 15th, 2013. (That’s the very first header this blog had!) I’m excited to still be growing this blog and so appreciative of those who follow me here!
One of the core features of this blog has always been the crochet artist profiles that I do. The very first one, done during these dates in 2011, was a profile of Olek. People knew who she was at this time but her work was nearly as widely known as it is today. Olek is an amazingly prolific crocheter with some great large-scale exhibits and I look forward to seeing what she continues to do in the years to come. Some of my favorite posts about her since this first one were the close-ups of her tractor, den Olek video roundup and notes about her London show.
I also did my first designer crochet feature on this site during that first week of the blog’s launch. Det var for at lade folk vide om det Dolce og Gabbana hæklet pung der sælger for mere end $1300. I 2012 I shared a different Dolce og Gabbana hæklet pung (shown on the left above) and that was one of the most popular posts ever on this blog. I’ve also done profiles of their designer crochet and compared that work to the much-more-affordable crochet from The Sak (shown on the right above).
This Week in 2012 Hook
Now let’s take a look at what happened on this blog between January 14 and January 20th in 2012 …
First there was the Stitch Mountain project: a collaboration between Red Heart, Jimmy Beans Wool og U.S. Ski og Snowboard Association (USSA) to help bring awareness to knitting and crochet among the ski and snowboard industry.” Kort efter indlæg jeg samlet en Roundup af Must Have Hæklede Produkter til Skiiers. I nyere ski nyheder, en professionel canadisk skiier var hjælp hækling at hjælpe med at rejse midler til at gå til de olympiske lege. Og i nyere Jimmy Beans nyheder Jeg er super interesseret i deres Stitch Red projekt.
Den fiber kunstner, jeg profileret i løbet af denne uge sidste år var amigurumi kunstner Andy Aguilar af The Dope Fiends. Han crochets og strik kreative figurer og derefter bruger dem i videoer og tegneserier. I juli featured jeg en af deres videoer som bedste hækling video af ugen. Jeg har for nylig nævnt dette kunstner igen i min Roundup af 20 forrygende mandlige krog kunstnere.
Også i løbet af denne uge i 2012 Jeg gjorde en af de første preview stillinger til min bog Hæklet reddede mit liv. Det var en hæklet sundhed indlæg om de måder, hvorpå fartøjet kan hjælpe folk med PTSD at håndtere angst, flashbacks and other symptoms. The book didn’t come out until the summer but I tried to share a lot of information during my research process. I continue to research and share this topic on the blog to this day, selvfølgelig.
Hæklet Nyheder 2013
News worth checking out from this week …
1. Baby Girl Injured with Crochet Hook. A one-year-old girl accidentally got stabbed in the throat with a crochet hook and had to be taken to the hospital but luckily she’s okay. I rarely think of my hooks as dangerous but they can be. Did you see the previous post I did on crazy crochet injuries?
2. There were two different nice stories this week about older women who use their crochet to help charities. First there is Rene who lært at hækle 90 år siden and recently sold her work to help out a church fundraiser. And then there’s Josephine DeMassa, a 74-årig kvinde who learned to crochet many years ago and recently accomplished the goal of crocheting slippers for every single member of a nursing home she adopted for the project.

3. Hun gjorde mig viser off hæklede bikinier. Chloe Dunlop er at få opmærksomhed for 1970'erne Gold Coast retro inspiration af hendes mode herunder hendes hæklede bikinier som vist ovenfor. Definitely a designer I’ll add the next time I do a crochet swimwear roundup.
