2011 en crochet: Sarah Applebaum, Hotel Pelirocco, Pablo Cabahug, almacenamiento de hilo
Cada semana vuelvo a estas mismas fechas en el blog de ganchillo concupiscencia año pasado. I look at what I was writing about then and update you where I can. It’s a way that we can all stay on top of crochet news and celebrate the changes that our community goes through over time. Espero que disfruten de la mirada de esta semana de vuelta en 2011 en crochet:
I had just discovered the crochet art of Sarah Applebaum because of the Seventeen Evergreen vídeo it was in at the time. I went on to profile this artist and really love seeing her work. She just recently wrapped up a solo show in Tennessee.
Hotel Pelirocco opened its crochet and knit room called Do Knit Disturb. Esta hermosa habitación está decorada con objetos hechos a mano coloridos. La habitación fue diseñada por el artista crochet Kate Jenkins, known primarily for her comfort food crochet installations. The room rents for £59.00 per weeknight, a little more on weekends, with breakfast included.
I reviewed Betty Barnden’s Técnicas de Super Acabado para Crocheters. Inspired by the book I also did a post sharing Barnden’s 10 Consejos inteligentes para conseguir un acabado de ganchillo Gran producto. Barnden’s newest book, which came out this summer, es 75 Crocheted Floral Blocks.
La Museo Nacional de Vías Navegables honored the history of crochet on canal narrowboats. This was the first time I learned anything about the UK canal narrowboats, let alone the role that crochet played in that history. I recently delved deeper into this topic and did a full post on crochet barcaza del canal. Muy interesante!
Twelve-year-olds in the seventh grade class at a San Jose school were crocheting baby blankets for newborns in need. I always love stories about kids who crochet.
Nudos de amor reached some great milestones. A couple of months ago this organization, which collects chemo caps for donation to cancer patients, sought votes to receive a big grant. To my knowledge the votes aren’t in yet as to who the grant winners were this year.
La double hand transplant patient learns to crochet.
Pablo Cabahug created beautiful crochet for 2011 Semana de la Moda de Filipinas. Hace poco lo nombró como uno de los top twenty male crochet designers for this work. Cabahug didn’t have his own website at that time but he does now. En una recent interview he named Emanuel Ungaro among his inspirations.
Here were some of the smart things people said about crochet:
“For thousands of years, the art and craft of natural dyeing has connected our creative urges with the inner workings of the natural world. As humans dyed fibers and then turned them into textiles and a range of other useful everyday objects, they transferred color from the plant and mineral kingdoms into human material culture. The dye processes that have evolved through the centuries are an outcome of both human error and conscious creation.” – Rebecca Burgess
“The lion’s share of my handiwork is cheerfully ugly, la conclusión natural de calibres superiores, un nivel de pájaro de la concentración y todo lo que por utilización del color. Si un proyecto va según lo previsto, es tan deliciosamente atractivo que estoy contento y rechazado en la misma medida!" – Jenny C. of Knitpicks
“I have friends with varying attitudes about skill levels. The one thing they all agree on is that if a project is appealing enough, they’ll learn the skills needed to make it. That attitude propels them forward, opening up new vistas in crochet, allowing them to attempt and master most crochet stitches and techniques without much fear. Y, miedo, after all is what prevents most of us from moving forward with our skills.” – JD from CraftGossip
“My fear is that there are new baby crocheters who will gravitate toward free patterns while they learn their skill, y luego renunciar porque las cosas no salen. Tal vez crochet fuertemente y los guantes sin dedos que deben caber todos terminan las muñecas del bebé de ajuste sólo. Tal vez todavía están bastante suelto y ese sombrero caben dos cabezas. Y tal vez se dan por vencidos y se van. Eso me pone triste. Así que por favor, take a few minutes if you’re writing a pattern and mark what your gauge is.” – Tracie Barrett
“Improve the appearance of your finished crochet by blocking or pressing, to even out uneven stitches and “set” the shape. Utilice el bloqueo de: yarns labeled “do not press” (tales como hilos sintéticos y texturizados), puntadas audazmente texturadas, y proyectos que incluyen varios hilos de diferentes. Utilice presionando para: hilados marcadas con una temperatura de planchado recomendada (fibras generalmente naturales, tales como lana o algodón)." – Betty Barnden

I did a roundup of photos of how people organize their alijo hilo. I love seeing other people’s creative spaces. My most recent example of this was my post about 5 crafters’ casas I’d love to have a retreat at.
Lo que estaba haciendo
I crocheted my Mac a laptop cozy using two strands of blue yarn held together for most of the design. That made it thick which created great cushioning for a laptop.
I created a slideshow video of my crochet capelets. Lamentablemente yo realmente no continúo con el trabajo de vídeo. It’s something I really want to improve in but can’t seem to focus on. Perhaps I need to take a class to channel my energy more specifically as I learn.
Estaba explorando los enlaces blogroll en diversos blogs para mi Enganchado Junto Proyecto. I looked at the blogs linked by Bridge and Beyond, a site for charity crochet donations. I gave a donación of a few crocheted items to this group earlier this year and continue to follow along with the blog to see what other people are donating.
I shared my list of 625 things to inspire your crochet.
Este día en la historia de ganchillo
Levanté la vista de esta fecha en la historia de crochet y encontré que en 1941 the hottest fashion stores were selling sombreros del ganchillo. The pillbox shaped hat with a long tassel was the most popular high-fashion hat of the day.
