alexandra bircken crochet 400x288 Then and Now in Crochet (11/25   12/1)

I profiled the organic sculptural crochet work of artist Alexandra Bircken. She had solo exhibitions in London and New York last year and she has 3 2012/2013 European solo shows listed on her CV along with participation in a 2012 group show. I know that at least one of the 2012 shows was focused on the idea of household domesticity, which of course crochet lends itself well to in terms of an art medium; the image above is from that show.

I did my roundup of 10 uomini sexy sportive camini all'uncinetto. It was so fun to put that togetherbesides looking at cute guys I got a chance to hear some of the stories of how these dudes had ended up decked out in crochet cowls by their girlfriends for those photos and it was lovely to hear that behind-the-scenes support. Later in the year I did an Etsy treasury of men in crochet hats. I stopped the series after that but kind of wonder nowwould you like to see more men in crochet featured on this blog?

Alcune delle cose che ha detto alcune persone intelligenti:

“Making timeless, unisex designs that will endure physically and fashionably is my passion.” - Fibrevolution

“The fleece of the alpaca is one of the softest fibers on the market today. Either Suri or Huacaya are equally delightful to the touch. This fiber will have most yarn enthusiasts cooing over it. The first shearing is the softest.”- Holli Friedland

“Nothing says “home” to me more than a crocheted afghan made from loving hands.”Jaybird Designs

“These days, instead of Cobain we have got the bearded Brooklynites, like the Mast brothers with their beautiful chocolate. Painters and musicians looking to make a decent living at their art, rather than to get rich. People who want to grow their own food, or crochet their own bedspreads. To use less and have less, but to have more beautiful things, and more mindfully. Ancora una volta, there are growing indications that the craftsmen are trying to bring things back to a more human, manageable scale.”Maria Bustillos

yarn dyeing books 400x143 Then and Now in Crochet (11/25   12/1)

I suggested 3 books for people interested in tintura di filato, something I was really interested in trying myself around this time last year although I never did end up trying it. I’ll have to add that to my 2013 to do list! The newest books I’ve seen come out about yarn dyeing are The Textile Artist’s Studio Handbook Then and Now in Crochet (11/25   12/1) e Hand Spinning and Natural Dyeing Then and Now in Crochet (11/25   12/1) but I still think that these first three I recommended would be great resources.

I shared an update of five things I’d learned so far from the Hooked Together project I was doing. I want to revive this project in some form but have to figure out how to make it less time-consuming and also more organized. Nel frattempo, I keep up with my regular Saturday link love posts to celebrate all of the great crochet bloggers online.

Questo giorno nella storia di Crochet

I looked up this date in crochet history and found an article from 1990 about a prison beauty shop program. The reason it came up in my search is because it mentions that there was so little funding for the program initially that they had to make do and use crochet hooks to pull hair through caps for frosting. This doesn’t actually have to do with crochet but I thought it was a find worth mentioning because it shows that even twenty years ago prisons were recognizing that inmates should be using their time to be productive and creative. In this case it was with a beauty shop but these days there are also plenty of crochet programs in prisons.
