Lad os se på hækling nyheder perioden februar 18 – 24 … ikke kun fra i år, men i gennemgangen af de seneste to år samt. Det er nyere hæklet historie opdateret og det bedste af denne uges hæklet nyheder alle pakket ind i én.
Denne uge i hækling 2011
Først lad os se på, hvad der var på bloggen i løbet af disse datoer i 2011.
The crochet artist that I profiled at this time last year was Shauna Richardson, the artist who coined the term “crochetdermy” and who is the creator behing the big Lionheart Crochet Project for the London Olympics. Her large-scale realistic-looking crochet animals are endlessly impressive to me and I also love the fact that she is eco-conscious enough to source local yarn for her work. Her crochet lions were recently on display at Twycross Zoo i UK. I so look forward to learning what she’ll be doing next!
In crochet fashion I wrote about Renter, the eco-friendly fair trade clothing business founded by Bono’s wife Ali Hewson. Deres 2011 collection included bohemian fashion inspiration from the Gypsy / Romany culture. At the time they were working with The Crochet Sisters, Kenyan artisan nuns. Desværre, there isn’t a lot of crochet in their 2013 spring collection; the sweater skirt shown above is the only piece I spotted.
This was when I first learned about the Bønner for Brains Scholarship Program, en virkelig enestående stipendium fra @ jimmybeanswool for hækling og strik designere. It is now in its fourth year. Applications will start being accepted on March 1, 2013 and will be accepted through the end of March. Scholarship info here.
Denne uge i hækling 2012
Lad os nu se på, hvad der var på bloggen i løbet af disse datoer i 2012.
The crochet artists I looked at during this week last year were the yarnbombing artists that make up the group The Ladies Fancywork Society. They had just done a hæklet taxidermy piece for a clothing/ craft store in Colorado. I haven’t seen any new large installations from them lately but I do follow their Facebook side to see cool stuff about yarnbombing, art and Denver. (The Facebook page is where the above photo was posted). In other yarnbombing news at this time last year was an announcement from Knit the City about a yarnstorming bootcamp i UK; they also offer workshops and other events periodically.
In crochet fashion I did a roundup of some of the best Dolce and Gabbana crochet handbags. Jeg kan ikke se nogen hæklede punge i deres nuværende kollektion (online butik) men der er et ew hæklede beklædningsgenstande, herunder den boucle bast hæklet blyant nederdel vist ovenfor. Også i 2012 fashion I reviewed the little bit of crochet fom designer Elsa Schiaparelli; this brand is re-launching in mid-2013.
I wrote about a group of male indsatte at Folsom State Prison has made their very first donation of knit and crochet items to a shelter for women and children. This is one of many, many different programs in the California Department of Corrections rehabilitation program. The progrma, called the Lifer Crochet Group, is described as “compassionate community support via crocheted donations from inmates”. I think there are many benefits to prison crochet programs.
2013 Hæklet Nyheder
Og nu hæklet nyheder fra denne uge, dette år …
1. Jimmy Beans Wool (mentioned above for the Beans for Brains Scholarship) has had a lot of media mentions recently. This is a great thing because this is a small yarn shop led by a strong woman (Laura Zander) that has succeeded in so many ways. Please watch the following video about her; it’s so touching. (Og ja, Laura’s a knitter but the shop is crochet-friendly; see the posts I’ve done about their upcoming Hæklet Rød projekt).
This video was posted by @TheStoryXchange. Den New York Times did a nice article recently about how the brand was successful with social media. And Laura did a TED talk about the power of imagination:
Dezeen aktier: “London modedesignere Søskende hæklede farverige blomster og gigantiske tilbehør til deres Efterår Vinter 2013 dametøj kollektion.” Mere om Søskende strik her.
3. Nyheder i hækling for kræft. “Tabet af en forælder er noget mennesker frygter. Men Hatboro-Horsham matematiklærer Nicole Dow-Macosky, med hjælp af Learning Support lærer Susan Milnazik, slået hende sorg over tabet af sin mor til kræft i et projekt, der kunne hjælpe mange kemoterapi patienter.
