2011 en crochet: Alexandra Bircken, Lily Aldridge, MagdaleneKnits, BessetteArt carenado
A lo largo de la semana comparto noticias 2012 gancho … excepto los domingos, cuando miramos hacia atrás en 2011 crochet y ver si podemos encontrar actualizaciones de las noticias a partir de entonces. Disfrute redada de esta semana:
I profiled the organic sculptural crochet work of artist Alexandra Bircken. Ella realizado exposiciones individuales en Londres y en Nueva York el año pasado y tiene 3 2012/2013 European solo shows listed on her CV along with participation in a 2012 group show. I know that at least one of the 2012 shows was focused on the idea of household domesticity, which of course crochet lends itself well to in terms of an art medium; the image above is from that show.
Escribí sobre Grandma’s Bar in Australia, un “granny chic cocktail bar” that sounded like a fun place to grab a drink. (They describe it on their website como un “retro-sexual haven of cosmopolitan kitsch and faded granny glamour.” I may actually get a chance to do this in the upcoming year because I’m going to Australia to give a talk about crochet and health for Healthivate 2013. Other crochet travel news I’ve written about in the past year includes retreats in Provence, Marrakech y the UK – all of wish I’d loved to have gone on if money had allowed.
La Christina Perri music video featured some crocheted text from Nancy’s Crochet. Nancy’s blog hasn’t been updated a whole lot recently but she’s still crocheting in the occasionaly updates we do see. As for Christina Perri, the singer’s second studio album is due out in Spring 2013.
Crochet Nariz Ventas cálidas cuadruplicado en Segundo Año; it sounds like a joke but it was a real news headline!
I did the November diseñadora y celebridad crochet Resumen, which included Victoria’s Secret model Karolina Kurkova in a black crochet dress for the November issue of Brazilian Vogue.
I did my roundup of 10 hombres sexy luciendo capuchas ganchillo. It was so fun to put that together – besides looking at cute guys I got a chance to hear some of the stories of how these dudes had ended up decked out in crochet cowls by their girlfriends for those photos and it was lovely to hear that behind-the-scenes support. Later in the year I did an Etsy treasury of men in crochet hats. I stopped the series after that but kind of wonder now – would you like to see more men in crochet featured on this blog?
I looked at the crochet work of Andres Courreges for my Designer Crochet Project series.
Algunas de las cosas que algunas personas inteligentes dijeron:
“Making timeless, unisex designs that will endure physically and fashionably is my passion.” - Fibrevolution
“The fleece of the alpaca is one of the softest fibers on the market today. Either Suri or Huacaya are equally delightful to the touch. This fiber will have most yarn enthusiasts cooing over it. The first shearing is the softest.”- Holli Friedland
“Nothing says “home” to me more than a crocheted afghan made from loving hands.” – Diseños Jaybird
"En estos días, en lugar de Cobain tenemos los residentes de Brooklyn barbudos, como los hermanos de mástil con su hermosa del chocolate. Pintores y músicos que buscan tener una vida digna en su arte, en lugar de hacerse rico. Las personas que quieren cultivar sus propios alimentos, o tejer sus propias colchas. Para usar menos y tienen menos, pero para tener las cosas más hermosas, y más conscientemente. De nuevo, hay indicios crecientes de que los artesanos están tratando de traer cosas de vuelta a un mundo más humano, manageable scale.” – Maria Bustillos
Crochet en Etsy
Yo era amante de un freeform crochet jacket from Olgemini who does amazing work.
I was liking a crochet beret and sweater set for girls by Etsy’s MagdaleneKnits who made this lovely crochet shawl that I’m enjoying looking at on Etsy now.
I put together one of my favorite Etsy treasuries: 1920′s inspired crochet. One of my favorite sellers’ work featured in the treasury is DialM who also created the crochet cloche hat with bow shown here.
I suggested 3 books for people interested in teñido de los hilos, something I was really interested in trying myself around this time last year although I never did end up trying it. I’ll have to add that to my 2013 to do list! The newest books I’ve seen come out about yarn dyeing are The Textile Artist’s Studio Handbook y Hand Spinning and Natural Dyeing but I still think that these first three I recommended would be great resources.
Lo que estaba haciendo
I was crocheting these two-toned circle cowl/ capelets that I loved – and still love!
I named 7 things on my Black Friday wish list as a crocheter. I’m not doing any Black Friday shopping (although I’m offering a sale on my book this weekend if you are!) But one thing from last year’s list that I never got and would still really like is a set of glass crochet hooks.
I shared an update of five things I’d learned so far from the Enganchado Juntos proyecto I was doing. I want to revive this project in some form but have to figure out how to make it less time-consuming and also more organized. Mientras tanto, I keep up with my regular Saturday link love posts to celebrate all of the great crochet bloggers online.
También puse en marcha mi 2011 diario Increíbles premios Crochet Blogger, que voy a estar haciendo de nuevo este mes de diciembre. It kicked off with an award for Marie of Underground Crafter for best crochet interviews.
Este día en la historia de ganchillo
Levanté la vista de esta fecha en la historia de crochet y encontré un artículo de 1990 acerca de un prison beauty shop programa. The reason it came up in my search is because it mentions that there was so little funding for the program initially that they had to make do and use crochet hooks to pull hair through caps for frosting. This doesn’t actually have to do with crochet but I thought it was a find worth mentioning because it shows that even twenty years ago prisons were recognizing that inmates should be using their time to be productive and creative. In this case it was with a beauty shop but these days there are also plenty of programas de gancho en las cárceles.
