2011 en crochet: Azzedine Alaïa, Calvin Klein, christmas tree, snowflakes
Habituellement le dimanche je regarde les dates de la même semaine 2011 pour voir ce qui s'est passé en crochet sur la base de ce que je blogue alors. Ce mois-ci le calendrier est un peu bancal en raison des activités animées de blog en Décembre. Aujourd'hui, nous allons regarder en arrière à ce blog pour les dates de 12/2/2011 par 12/15/2011, see what was happening then and get some updates on those things.
I profiled the artistic fashions of upcycled crochet designer Marion Macedo. I have not seen new announcements about this artist’s work since the profile.
Crochet artist Magda Sayeg talked about her process. The most recent thing I’ve seen from this artist was an interview in Gestalt Journal where she discusses her history with this art and some of her current projects.
Olek’s art was vandalized but she said to go easy on the vandals. Check out this new video of Olek’s work:
J'ai fait un examen de Softies crochet for its blog tour. Author Stacey Trock is currently working on her next book, which I believe is due out in 2013.
I did an interview with crochet designer Anastacia Knits. She continues to create new designs and in fact is giving away several of her patterns here on the blog this week as part of my big Crochet Concupiscence 12 Jours de Giveaway de Noël.
Items featuring Trop pièce de théâtre à tricoter. You can now find a lot of these pinned on Pinterest.
I rounded up a list of ten foreign language crochet blogs. I now devote a regular series of posts to this topic. I recently wrote a guest post about foreign blogs for Crochet Aujourd'hui. Plus, I now have a translator in this blog’s sidebar for foreign readers, which wasn’t the case one year ago.
J'ai regardé Azzedine Alaïa for my Designer Crochet series. I don’t spot anything new from this brand in crochet.
I also looked at Calvin Klein crochet. A look at the online store today turns up some “crochet-inspired” items but no crochet.
La Mollie Makes magazine had recently come out and I was interested in it. I never did check out a copy although I follow their happenings online. Mollie Makes now has an iPad app issue called Gathered that also looks inspiring but I don’t have an iPad so I haven’t dug into it myself.
Project Linus Was Named 2012 Récipiendaire de Market Street changement pour la charité. The organization gets funding in a specific quarter and they are actually wrapping up their quarter right now.
Les gens qui Crochet
Crocheter Anna Manna Durham had turned one hundred and celebrated by taking her first tour d'hélicoptère. I don’t have an update on her but sure she hope she’s still doing well!
Delores Schlegel crocheted caps for the needy while her husband sat by her side reading. Doux.
Myanmar immigrant Win Htay was making a modest income crocheting yarmulkes for a Jewish museum.
And there were 5 more awesome old women who were crocheting
Quelques-unes des choses que certaines personnes intelligentes dit:
“I don’t run and I don’t do lots of things but I like to knit and I like to crochet.” – Cathie Haldane
“Simple definitely doesn’t have to be boring, and there’s no need for chunky to be frumpy.” – Jen Geigley
“If you’re not familiar with blocking then don’t be afraid. It’s really quite a simple task. Fondamentalement, you’re steaming or washing your finished piece of work then pinning it down in the desired shape while it dries so that your stitches are allowed to settle into the fabric.” - Les sutures Shorty
“Crochet is definitely not for the faint hearted………..in my house it is fast-paced and at the moment a little stressful!" – Foi
“Crochet hooks are the unsung heroes of our craft.” - Crochet avec Dee
“Give a crocheter a pattern, and she’ll make an exact copy of the sample in the pattern. But teach a crocheter how to use a pattern, and there’s no stopping her!" – Stacey Trock
“Next time you find yourself in your local yarn shop or at your farmer’s market, talk to someone about where the fiber in your hands is from. How was it made? where was it milled? What kind of dye process was used? The more you understand about your fiber and where it came from, the more informed you will be and the more you’ll appreciate the process.” – Tanis Gris
“You don’t need to be a spinner to love fibers! I’m not a spinner but it doesn’t stop me from indulging in an assortment of fiber.” – Choix tricot
“I am obsessed with making things in general, mais j'aime particulièrement faire des choses avec de la fibre. J'aime rotation, colorant, tricoter, crochet and have even been known to weave a bit.” – Crochet Renee
And part of a song from Dora Ohrenstein:
“Let the stitch tell you what it wants to be
Ils peuvent aller dans les cercles, ou la queue
Vous pouvez les faire grand et encombrant, ou faire amende.
Il suffit de payer une attention particulière à ses tendances naturelles
Un point ne vous décevra pas, it always aims to please.”
Crochet sur Etsy
Nous avons examiné la pros and cons of crocheting with mohair yarn. I haven’t written a lot about this since but maybe I should do a roundup of mohair patterns.
Tangerine Tango was named the color of the year by Pantone so I did a roundup of 5 tangerine colored yarns. To be honest I didn’t see a lot of people specifically using that color this year despite that prediction. The new color prediction for 2013 is Emerald, which sounds a lot more user-friendly to me!
Ce que je faisais à
I signed up to do a mug rug swap, eventually making this one.
I crocheted these motifs to start a scarf. Pour être honnête,, I still have the motifs and no scarf.
I had just started working on what ended up being this sac au crochet.
J'ai partagé une mise à jour de cinq choses que j'avais appris jusqu'ici du projet Accroché Ensemble, je faisais. I checked out Bunny Mummy’s blogroll where I discovered several blogs I still follow including Posie Gets Cozy, IDA Interior Lifestyle, Linhas Imaginarias and Tangled Happy.
J'ai aussi lancé ma 2011 quotidien Impressionnant prix Crochet Blogger, que je vais faire à nouveau en Décembre. This one is also in full swing again this year with awards being handed out daily this month for all of the awesome bloggers out there writing about crochet.
