I just realized that I have been blogging here at Crochet Concupiscence for a year now. I knew that the one year birthday of the blog was coming up and had planned to do something special but then it kind of slipped by quietly (on January 15th). Va bene … in quiet honor of the blog’s special day I’m launching a new weekend featured showing what was happening on the blog this week one year ago.
The very first crochet artist that I profiled on this blog was Olek. I’ve since written about her terrific work numerous times. She’s still going strong, having just opened a brand new exhibit a Londra.
Libri di uncinetto
The very first crochet book that I reviewed here on this blog was Vickie Howell’s terrific Pop! Va all'uncinetto. This book shows crochet inspired by pop culture. I’ve since seen lots of great crochet in this area including progettista uncinetto e crochet on celebrities. Ho inoltre ha continuato seguendo Vickie Howell, come lei ha bloggato, shared crochet and knit patterns and launched her new yarn line Sheep(ish).
A barriera corallina uncinetto iperbolico was on display at this time last year in Salisbury, REGNO UNITO. This was when I started learning about the cool coral reef crochet project that has spread all the way around the world thanks to the hard work of Le sorelle di Wertheim. During this same week last year I also wrote about a cool hyperbolic crochet cactus garden.
Another news bit that happened at this time last year was that there was some concern that crocheters may be affected by the rising cost of yarn. This is still an issue of concern today; just last month KnitPicks explained why some of their yarn prices are going up.
Finally I wrote my first post about women crocheting for a cause. It was about a group of five elderly women who crochet together to donate to a variety of different causes.
I did my first designer crochet feature on this site during that first week of the blog’s launch. Era per far conoscere il Dolce e Gabbana borsa all'uncinetto che vende per più di $1300.

“Knitting and crocheting is like therapy for a lot of people.” – Janna Milbradt
“The best part about it is it’s me actually believing in myself and seeing my talent as something useful that makes people happy. It’s not just making money, you know?” -M.L. Kinnel
“Tea-stained laces, Victorian accents, ruffles and textured fabrics like Swiss dot and uncinetto reinforce this sense of vintage femininity.” -Marla Shavin
“I felt overwhelmed by the masses of circular creations that seemed to represent womankind’s challenge to answer the riddle of pi in neverending cotton lace.” -Sigrid Arnott
