Some Kudos for Crochet Concupiscence:

crochet blog 400x88 Press

- Twitter shout-out from Crochet Today!

“It is sort of like the USA Today of crochet blogs – a roundup of everything going on in the crochet world, plus Kathryn’s personal projects – but with much better/more engaging writing.” – Marie from Underground Crafter

“Kathryn Vercillo publishes a hefty blog that zooms in on crochet. From the lowly acrylic granny squares to the high couture use of crochet in fashion garments, she gives all of them equal adulation.” – TAFA

“Kathryn Vercillo has her finger on the pulse of the world of crochet. Hers is the one blog I check almost every day.” – Laurinda of Remembering Rowan

Kathryn’s blog is different from most other crochet blogs out there. Like all of us, she shares her own crochet adventures, but apart from that, she also tries to give her readers every piece of info about crochet she can find: history, fashion, artists, crochet quotes, crochet for charity, and more: If you can’t find it on Crochet Concupiscence, it probably doesn’t exist .” – Barbara of Made in K-town

“If you are looking for some inspiration, awesome patterns, links to other great crochet sites and much more – she is your one stop shop! I can easily spend a couple of hours on her blog just looking at past posts that I may have missed. Anything you want to know about crochet you will find there.” – Aprile from The Steady Hand

“If it happens in the world of crochet, likely Kathryn will have already reported it.”MadWhimsy

“WARNING! It is very easy to get lost and spend hours reading through the blog (I’d like it reproduced as a huge, glossy coffee table book – that way I could put in a book mark!).” – String Theory Crochet

“I’ve been reading Kathryn’s blog for a while now, and she constantly impresses me with her depth of knowledge, proficient research skills, and her commitment to promoting various aspects of crochet.” – Thornberry

“Wow Kathryn, your blog is really an encyclopedia. … Thank you so much for all the time and efforts you put into this! You’re a beacon in the crocheting world and for crocheters.” – A lovely blog comment from crochet blogger ElisabethAndree

“Awesome. I could live in this blog and get no crocheting done – at all! Cough-enabler-cough.” - blog comment from Janice Davey

“If you are a fan of crochet, or want to see what can be done with crochet then Kathryn’s blog is the place to go.” – Jafagirls

“Kathryn writes extensively about the latest happenings in crochet. So if you consider yourself a serious fan of crochet and you’re not yet on her subscribers list, or following her on Twitter, well then you should be.” – Aberrant Crochet

“I will say that if you do not subscribe to Crochet Concupiscence, you are missing out! Kathryn posts interviews, yarn reviews, book reviews, news, projects, inspiration, and more all related to crochet. And I don’t know if she knows just how appreciated she is from the entire community – but I can tell her that I appreciate her and the work she does.” – Crochet with Cris

“Sometimes a stand-out person comes along in an online version of a cocktail party and the sharing of our interests/passions and knowledge creates a sort of click that resonates with the heart. Kathryn Vercillo is that “click” for me.” CGOA founder Gwen Blakley Kinsler

“Kathryn Vercillo of Crochet Concupiscence amazes me. Her blog is so comprehensive and that in itself is a wonder – how she finds the time and energy to collate so many things. I don’t know how she does it and that’s just the blog! She is also writing her own publications as well as for others and is somehow managing a study load. I love how she turns her passion for crochet and health into positive action.” – Lupey Loops

“It is an absolute delight to have my work recognized by Ms. Vercillo. To say that she is tireless in her efforts to promote crochet is an understatement, and her encouragement is a reminder to me, in this season of giving, that sometimes the most important gift is the one where we acknowledge of the humanity and efforts of those around us who do the many things (large and small) that make it possible for us to carry on with our lives.” – Crochetbug
