Discussione aperta venerdì: Come si chiama voi stessi?

I’ve participated in variations on this conversation before but I think it’s an important one so I’m making it this week’s Friday Open Discussion. The topic is: what do you call yourself?

What I mean is, how do you refer to your crochet work when talking to others? Si chiama voi stessi un crocheter, un artista, un artigiano, un artista di fibra, un crafter, un creatore, un creatore, a small business owneror something else?

Why do you choose the terms that you do? Do they differ depending on the audience you’re speaking to? Does using any of the other terms make you feel uncomfortable?

I believe wholeheartedly that the words that we choose have power. So I askwhat do you call yourself? And why?

  1. I call myself a crocheter or a crochet artist. I do other crafty things to but right now in my life I am a crocheter & proud of it. Why do I call myself this,because I am proud to be part of this art & I want people to know that’s what I do.

    • @icrochetinoh Love that! I usually say “uncinetto blogger” o “Io all'uncinetto” o “artista del crochet” when it’s any kind of audience that will know what crochet is. I tend to meet a lot of tech-minded, science-minded guys around here so with them it’s more likeI’m a bloggerand then when they follow up I’ll explain that I blog about crafty things like crochet, often requiring an explanation of what crochet is.

  3. Usually it is “Io all'uncinetto” followed by a questiondo you knit as well?” (I get the impression it is expected in Australia that people knit first and foremost and maybe do a bit of crochetif they MUST). My answer is I like knit but I don’t do it because I am too slow at it. In actual fact I just like crocheting and crochet so much more although I have knitted item that I find to be invaluable and irreplaceable (and it is true I am too slow at knitting).

    • @carolmckayau I get the knitting question if I’m talking to people who know what crochet is. But with most of the tech-y guys I’ve met they just give me a blank look and don’t even know what crochet is at all. So unfortunately then I end up saying, “bene, it’s kind of like knittingbecause they know what that is.

  4. @CrochetBlogger This I will need to ponder

  5. I like to use crochet designer or crochet artist as I tend to work with plastic yarn or plarn.
