Earlier today I published the best answers other people gave to my Enero Crochet preguntas del día. I thought you might want to get to know a little bit more about me by learning my answers to the same questions. Ya están aquí.
¿Cuáles son tus 2013 Objetivos del ganchillo?
Discutí mi objetivos del ganchillo y mi ganchillo blogging metas here on Crochet Concupiscence at the beginning of the month. Some of my goals in my own crafting include to learn a new technique, practice more mindful crochet, take a crochet class, and challenge myself with a large motif-based project.
¿Cuál es tu favorito ganchillo puntada?
Mi favorito para mirar es los lingotes porque es tan diferente pero no es tan divertido que hacer con la mayoría del hilado. I like post stitches a lot. My favorite classic stitch is the hdc, specifically a ribbed hdc.

I am not afraid to call myself an artist but it is more common that I just say I’m a crocheter or a lover of crochet. I also say I’m a crochet blogger and crochet author, Claro.

“Ganchillo es una manera de curar a mi y a otros. Siempre vendré a él con una mente abierta y creativa y un deseo de usarlo para hacer el bien en cierto modo.”
¿Cómo quieres aprender Crochet?
I’m sure I’ve mentioned in the past that I tend to learn best from reading. As a result I usually prefer written instructions for crochet. If I’m going to use something visual, Aunque, I’d prefer a video to drawings or symbol charts.
¿Qué te interesa Era de ganchillo más
I really like 1970s crochet art, que he crecido interesa cada vez más como tengo investigado la época.
Curiosamente, my more recent research into 1930ganchillo s is also making me a fan of that era of the craft, which is not something I’d thought about much before now.
¿Que opinas sobre Granny plazas?
I love to work on large granny squares that have only a few color changes. I don’t like changing colors or joining squares so I don’t do the motif-style granny projects much although I love how they look when others do them!
Que en tu vida más disfrutas ganchillo elementos para?
I have to confess that it’s myself. I do also enjoy making special items for friends and family but I tend to crochet more for me than them!
¿Cómo ha ayudado ganchillo tu salud?
Obviamente, Este es un tema que no me canso de hablar de, teniendo en cuenta lo escribió un libro de ello!
¿Cuál es tu opinión de diseñadores de la marca que incorporan ganchillo en su trabajo de pista?
I love checking out the creativity of designer crochet and brand name crochet. I don’t purchase it but I like seeing it and sharing it. I definitely think if you’re going to buy it then it’s ideal to make sure that the designers are offering fair compensation to their crocheters since this is a handcraft that can’t be done by machine but other than that I think it’s a terrific thing to see!
¿Cuál es la mejor manera de organizar sus ganchos? ¿Cómo ordenar y almacenarlos?
Ya había conseguido algunas ideas estupendo about this from asking it last year but don’t honestly do much of anything special with mine. A friend made me a lovely crochet hook case out of fabric and I keep everything in there or right in the work that I’m working on.
Si podrías tomar un retiro de ganchillo en cualquier ciudad del mundo, ¿Dónde escogería usted?
I’m currently infatuated with the idea of spending a relaxing vacation on a beach in the Mediterranean islands of Greece so I’d pick there. I’d love to crochet some type of dress for myself there so that every time I wore it I’d be reminded me of the experience!
Hay un montón de matemáticas en crochet. ¿Qué piensas acerca de eso?
I love exploring how math, science and art can all be incorporated into crochet. I love it as a concept. I don’t actually pay much attention to the math in crochet when I’m crafting something myself, Aunque, unless my stage of the pattern absolutely requires it!
Usted siempre resentía algo que fueron tejiendo? ¿Por qué? ¿Qué hizo.?
I learned early on that if I have to make something, meaning I committed myself to it for one reason or another and someone else is expecting it, then I rarely enjoy the process. I deal with this by not taking on projects for other people and just crocheting what I feel like crocheting so that it can remain something that is a true joy for me!
¿Qué tipo de ganchos son sus favoritos? Aluminio? Acero? Hechos a mano? Específica de la marca?
I love looking at beautiful glass and hand carved wooden crochet hooks but I prefer working with Boye aluminum hooks.
¿Cuáles son las cosas positivas y negativas que dices a ti mismo como del ganchillo?

Que las etapas del proceso del ganchillo disfrutas más – planificación del proyecto, trabajando en ello o terminarla?
My answer to this one seems to change a lot but right now it’s the process of working. I’m actually crocheting this humongous hyperbolic crochet art piece all in blue right now and I am just growing it and growing it and growing it and not even thinking about when it will end but just loving the rhythmic process of seeing it unfold.
¿Qué es la #1 cierto Crochet hace que sienta creativa?
It allows me to do an artistic thing in my own way in a setting that doesn’t invoke a lot of judgment.
¿Cuáles son tus favoritas libros de ganchillo?
I love the smart advanced crochet technique books like Dora Ohrenstein’s Custom Crocheted Sweaters and Kristin Omdahl’s Seamless Crochet. I love the crochet books from the 1970s that feature projects from multiple designers, such as Creative Crochet. And I’m hoping to read more crochet fiction and non-fiction.
¿Qué programa de TV o película ha visto que tiene del ganchillo?
I’m always spotting crocheted items in different shows and movies! Life on Mars has 1970s style crochet afghans in the background of some scenes, por ejemplo, and Ugly Betty is known for featuring some crochet. The clip that comes to mind of someone actually working on crochet is from The New Girl.

I have tried working with different materials like plarn, Mizhuki paper cords and rags. En última instancia, Aunque, I have to confess that I strongly prefer the process of crocheting with yarn, especially soft yarn like silk bamboo yarn and baby alpaca yarn.
¿Qué has hecho (caso en todo) ser respetuoso del medio ambiente en su labor de ganchillo?
- I’ve participated in the Algo en el agua eco-art crochet project using plarn.
- I frequently purchase local yarn and yarn from indie dyers and spinners who work with organic, sustainable sources.
- I constantly frog unused projects and repurpose the yarn.
- I buy used yarn through thrift stores and other secondhand sources.
- I try to spread the word about respetuoso del ganchillo through my blog.
Estás trabajando a través de un patrón no está funcionando. A qué te dedicas?
I actually don’t often follow crochet patterns because I kind of just like to make it up as I go. Sin embargo, this is definitely an issue that has come up when following patterns. I wrote a post this month about the main thing I’ll do in a situation like this which is make basic crochet assumptions to adjust the pattern and try to get it to work. If that doesn’t work I usually let the project go and do something else but if I really wanted to make the item or thought that the problem was that I didn’t understand something then I might contact the designer or turn to Ravelry forums to get help working through the piece.
¿Cuáles son tus pensamientos sobre quienes ganchillo artículos para sus mascotas?
So I confess that I used to be unnecessarily judgy about this, thinking “what the heck, pets don’t need clothes!” Y luego … then I started crocheting clothes for the pets in my life and I totally love doing it. And some of the pets actually really like wearing clothes!
¿Cuántos ganchos verdad propia? ¿Cuántos son demasiados?
I actually don’t keep that many crochet hooks around. I have a set of D-K from Boye. I have a few loose hooks of random sizes from Susan Bates, a lite-up hook, a bamboo hook and two large hooks – an aluminum N and a plastic Q. I have a set of about eight small size thread crochet hooks that I never really use. So what is that – acerca de 20? 25? I’d like to get a set of glass hooks and a set of wooden hooks although I’m sure that’s more for show. So too many for me personally would be maybe 5o but I think it’s wonderful when people have really cool large collections of hundreds of interesting crochet hooks.
