I have a monthly column in Happily Hooked digital online magazine where I share interviews with people who crochet to heal in a variety of ways. The newest issue, #13, has my interview with Akua Lezli Hope.
Did you know that the world has been celebrating Earth Day for over 40 years? It’s a good day to take a minute and think about ways to practice more eco-friendly crochet. I thought I’d share some links if that’s something that interests you.
If you enjoy learning about crochet straight from the mouths of designers and makers then these interviews should interest you. Some are links to podcast interviews (by folks like Marly Bird) and others are written interviews (like those from my favorite interviewer, Underground Crafter).
Every person who crochets has a story. Every story is unique and special. Here are eleven of those crochet stories from people who crochet – young and old, famous and unknown. They are healing themselves and others with their craft.
Back in August I published the story of Joe, a disabled veteran who crochets for charity to help him through PTSD and other health issues. At the time, he was in need of yarn, and several of you stepped up and sent donations his way so that he could continue to heal himself and others through crochet. I thought that you might like an update about what he’s been doing since then.
I’m planning to curate as much crochet history information as possible, decade by decade. My research began with a deep investigation into 1930s crochet, which I’ve collected in year-by-year posts. I thought I’d round up that information in one post today to share everything I now know about crochet in the 1930s!
In this roundup you will find lots of crochet patterns and various crochet inspiration for Easter Eggs. You’ll also find a variety of other Easter-related crochet ideas.
