Hoy nos fijamos en las noticias crochet de esta semana – y actualizaciones de las noticias de la misma semana de 2011 y 2012.
Esta Semana en Crochet 2011
En primer lugar vamos a ver lo que había en el blog durante estas fechas en 2011.
The crochet artist I profiled during this time in 2011 era Laurel Roth. I mentioned in last year’s update that she’s been working more with wood than crochet lately. She had work in multiple exhibits in the past two years, was a 2012 Artist Fellow at the DeYoung Museum here in San Francisco and was featured as one of the 40 bajo 40 artists by the Renwick Gallery of the Smithsonian.
Also in crochet art at this time there was a lot of news from Olek. She had a new show. She’d crocheted a tribute to Banksy. She was hitting the headlines. At this same time the following year (2012) she was still hot with her new show wrapping up in London. Olek continues to produce terrific crochet artwork. Her latest exhibition at New York’s Jonathan LeVine Gallery closes on March 23rd; ella era interviewed about it by TIME.
In fashion, there were some great springttime crochet looks from Anna Sui in 2011. The following year there was a great Anna Sui fragrance ad with a model who was wearing crochet. La 2011 line se inspiró en el 1970′s but Anna has gone back a decade to the mod 1960′s for inspiration for her 2013 looks and there are some cute bold designs in there including the white crochet/lace-inspired hoodie dress shown above.
Esta Semana en Crochet 2012
Ahora echemos un vistazo a lo que fue en el blog durante estas fechas en 2012.
I shared the beautiful artistic hats of crochet artist Genna Miles. No es ninguna sorpresa que estaba incluido en el resumen de 100 sombreros del ganchillo únicos. Check out her creations further at Raggle Taggle Gypsy Hats.
I wrote about Le Souk, a Netherlands-based crochet el comercio justo company supporting women in war torn countries. The crocheted teddy bears above by Danish brand Sebra are one of the artículos de ganchillo they are currently offering.
And this was the time last year when I had first discovered Mark Dittrick’s book Crochet duro, which launched my exploration into 1970′s diseñadores de ganchillo, including a more in-depth look at Dittrick himself.
2013 Crochet Noticias
Y ahora la noticia de crochet de esta semana, este año … I’ve actually only got one news piece this week because I’ve fallen behind in my own research, but here it is:
“In the past year every newborn has left Dublin Methodist Hospital with a piece of work from Maryellan Krenek. The seven-year Dublin Retirement Village resident has crocheted more than 1,000 hats for newborns at the hospital in the last year, a feat that earned her an “honorary volunteer” award from the hospital. “I’ve been crocheting since I was 8,” the 84-year-old said, adding her aunt taught her a few things then she learned the rest with a book.”
