Un anno fa a Crochet 1/22 – 1/28

Uncinetto da Lisa Maree, Jack Davis, Lesley Stanfield e Gaultier

Nel caso ve lo siete perso settimana scorsa, Io ho debuttato una nuova funzione di blog settimanale in onore di un compleanno di anno del mio blog. Farò post mostrando ciò che accade su questo blog un anno fa a settimana e offrendo aggiornamenti su argomenti dove si può. Cominciamo con il nostro sguardo indietro.

Arte crochet

Ooh scandalosa. Il secondo artista uncinetto che mai profilata qui sul blog era San Francisco Jack Davis Chi è conosciuto per il suo 35+ anni di carriera facendo ed esibendo maglia peni. Non possa essere tutti tazza di tè all'uncinetto, ma mi sono impressionato dalla sua dedizione al suo mestiere e amava il suo lavoro di ricerca. Egli era uno spettacolo che ho perso nel mese di ottobre (presso il negozio adulti Good Vibrations). La foto del suo lavoro nella parte superiore di questa pagina proviene da quello spettacolo via Scuoti la danza.

Libri di uncinetto

The crochet book I enjoyed reviewing at this time last year was 100 Fiori a maglia e all'uncinetto di Lesley Stanfield. I still think it’s a good resource for crochet flower patterns. However I now also know about some other crochet flower pattern books to recommend – in particolare: Uncinetto Bouquet.

Uncinetto notizie

Una cosa che ho notato in questo periodo l'anno scorso era che stavano facendo un sacco di gente parti del corpo all'uncinetto anatomicamente corretta come cuore e polmoni. I revisited this topic later in the year when I did the birthday post for my dad on uncinetto di donazione dell'organo.

Another thing in the crochet news at the time was that Sarah London had launched her Uncinetto un arcobaleno project to help flood victims in Australia. It called for granny squares (which I admit I intended to donate and somehow never got around toshame on me!) Since then Sarah has continued her crochet efforts, launching her Granny Love crochet book recently and now running a really cool CAL for her Wool-Eater pattern.

One of my favorite regular features on this blog had an entry during this week last year: my awesome elderly crocheter series. Ho scritto su Dora Ropchan, a 106-year-old crocheter. Her story is also published in my booklet of these stories titled Quando nonna non è uncinetto è caccia grossa.

Uncinetto moda

A year ago Australian crochet swimwear designer Lisa Maree era super eccitato che Net-a-porter.com voluto lavorare con lei. Lisa Maree ha continuato ad espandersi da allora. Il suo lavoro all'uncinetto è stato visto su diverse celebrità and walked the runway at Settimana della moda australiana. The line has expanded to include swimwear that’s not crocheted but that still makes up the bulk of her line. Love what she’s doing!

Uncinetto costumi da bagno were hot at this time last year. Another bit of news came from Muscotica.com who had seen their crochet swimsuits on stars including Kourtney Kardashian, Paris Hilton and Mischa Barton.

I’ve often addressed the issue of catena di negozi uncinetto on this blog in the past year but the first time I posted anything related to the topic was the news that Topshop and Marks & Spencer both had crochet in their spring 2011 linee. Then later in the week I noted that crochet featured heavily in the Calypso St. Barth collection for Target. Later in the year Target would get a lot of attention from knitters and crocheters when Missoni for Target went live. So many people tried to buy it up that the Target website crashed. Per quanto mi riguarda, I prefer the original Missoni lines.

E infine, one of my favorite crochet fashion items to date was posted during this week: Gaultier Crochet Shoes.

Uncinetto citazioni:

Le quotazioni di uncinetto che erano presenti in questo sito nel corso di questa stessa settimana l'anno scorso sono state:

“Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep.”Scott Adams

«Creazione e lavorazione filati esotici ha dato nuovo significato per l'aggiunta di fibra alla mia dieta». – Kathy Haneke

"Se più persone a maglia e all'uncinetto, il mondo vedrebbe meno guerre e molto meno road rage." – Mento di Lily

You know you’ve been crocheting too long when you win the lottery and spend the whole darn thing to buy Lion Brand Yarns’ stock, a sheep farm in New Zealand, and spinning lessons.”Jennie’s Crochet

And a long quote from Vickie Howell about pop culture’s influence on fashion and craft.

Crocheters su Twitter

In questo periodo l'anno scorso consigliato seguenti dieci crocheters su Twitter. Here’s what they’re up to now:

  • @aberrantcrochetJulia Chambers is a crochet designer who is still active on Twitter.
  • @vashtiramaVashti Braha beat me out of a Flamie in 2011 for best crochet blog. She’s got some great crochet info there and on Twitter.
  • @gocrochet – Designer Ellen Gormley remains active on her blog as well as her Twitter account.
  • @knotbygranmaI love what this fun crochet art doll maker is doing these days and mostly I stay on top of it all via Twitter.
  • @monikadesignI absolutely love the crochet stuff in the Etsy store that this crafter posts about on Twitter so I can see it :) I wish she had a blog!
  • @unravelmedesignTheresa Grant also has an Etsy store but is terrifically good about making sure her Twitter account isn’t just about this but also about all sorts of life and craft stuff.
  • @jaybirddesignsMostly tweets links to her Etsy store which is full of crochet goodness. She also blogs intermittently. Honestly I follow the blog more than the Tweets but that’s just a preference.
  • @hotpinkhookSadly both the blog and the Twitter account went dormant mid-year last year so I’m not really following this one anymore.
  • @hooked4lifeI adore Mary Beth Temple (I recommend her Agganciato per la vita crochet essay book) and continue to enjoy following her on Twitter.
  • @lbystudioI’m not sure I realized the difference between Lion Brand’s various Twitter accounts at this time last year but this one is linked to their actual New York retail store.

Here’s What I was Crocheting A Year Ago:
