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. Da allora ho scritto sul suo lavoro formidabile numerose volte. Sta ancora andando forte, having just opened a brand new exhibit a Londra.
The very first crochet book that I reviewed here on this blog was Vickie Howell’s terrific Pop! Va Crochet. This book shows crochet inspired by pop culture. I’ve since seen lots of great crochet in this area including crochet progettista e crochet on celebrities. Ho continuato anche in seguito Vickie Howell come lei ha bloggato, shared crochet and knit patterns and launched her new yarn line Sheep(ish).
La reef 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 I Wertheim suore. 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. Si trattava di far conoscere il Dolce e Gabbana borsa crochet che vende per più di $1300.
