2011 in crochet: Dior, Castaway Collection pillows, Amigurumi Bunny Kit by dawntoussaint, Oscar de La Renta
Usually on Sundays I look back at the dates of the same week in 2011 to see what has happened in crochet based on what I was blogging then. This month the schedule is a little wonky because of the busy activities of the blog in December. Oggi vedremo di nuovo in questo blog per le date di 12/16/2011 attraverso 12/31/2011.
I profiled the work of crochet artist and DJ Jennifer Xerri of Starlily Creations. She continues to do both of these creative jobs. The photo above is the artist at one of her recent events.
I reviewed this crochet essay book by designer Mary Beth Temple. Temple had a great new pattern book come out this year called Curvy Girl Crochet: 25 Patterns that Fit and Flatter.
Ho visto questo Martha Stewart knit blanket and wanted to see something similar in crochet. They aren’t the same but a couple that have reminded me of this blanket are:
I was in love with the granny-square inspired tights by House of Holland. I actually recently mentioned these again in a post called “looks like a granny“. These tights are no longer sold through the brand but they do have some other cute tights, like their pink houndstooth tights.
Alcune delle cose che alcune persone intelligenti dicono:
“Motifs are great traveling projects. They are so small you can crochet them in line to almost anything. Why yes I have crocheted at long red lights and in grocery store lines.” – CrochetByFaye
“Crocheting is a tactile process: the yarn runs through your fingers as you hold it.” – Stacey Trock
“She might have entered the endeavor merely with the hope of having something soft and snuggly to wear the next time she heads out in the cold, but she will likely walk away from it with the realization that the tiny, tinkering activity of her hands also works wonders for her mind. In altre parole, she’ll be hooked.” – Celia Barbour
“We use them to carry delicacies from the market or to hold our latest crochet projects, as purses or carryalls—well, to tell the truth, we use them for just about everything. I’m talking about crocheted bags. These brilliant accessories are not only fun to crochet but are also the perfect canvas to showcase your crochet skills.” - Toni Rexroat I also had a second quote from this CrochetMe writer: “Crochet is captivating in its beauty. Centinaia di piccoli punti sono combinati in milioni di possibili accordi per creare una finale di un lavoro finale di arte, whether it is a lace collar of intricate thread crochet or a simple hat to keeps a child’s ears warm.”
“I have created hundreds of garments and accessories with everything from indifferent craft acrylic to luxury cashmere, in every weight from lace to super bulky. I maintain that every yarn deserves good design. Even if it takes extraordinary effort, long nights of yarn whispering, cajoling and tussling, eventually every yarn must speak to me.” – Doris Chan
"Knitters, crocheters, quilters e altri artigiani generosamente dare il lavoro delle loro mani per la famiglia, gli amici e le cause di beneficenza tutto l'anno. Ma durante la stagione estiva sembra ancora più facile da dare. " – Creazioni di KN
“The thing I love most about crochet is the endless possibilities for projects. You aren’t restricted to making wearable items, craft items, household items, tote bags or purses. You can do it all.” – Crochetbird
"Penso che le donne non necessariamente identificano uncinetto o ricamo con il vecchio ruolo di casalinga e pertanto è invece visto come un altro mezzo accessibile attraverso cui i progettisti e gli artisti possono esprimersi." – Yanina Schenkel
"Crochet ha avuto più alti e bassi di qualsiasi altra forma conosciuta di lavoro manuale ed è stata anche considerata un'arte perduta durante molti periodi di tempo. Ma il mestiere è rivelata invulnerabile ed è sempre sopravvissuta, anche dopo lunghi periodi di quasi completa stagnazione. " – Liz Blackwell
"Il nuovo anno è un momento di riflessione per molti di noi. Crocheters sono forse più riflessivo di più. " – All'interno Crochet
Crochet su Etsy
Ho intervistato proprietario del negozio Etsy Castaway Collezioni. Quest'anno mi sono davvero amare le interviste fatte sul Castaway Collections website of photographers who work with creative handcrafted props.
And I did a treasury showing the 12 most expensive crochet items on Etsy. This year it turns out that a lot of the items that come up in a search like this aren’t actually high priced. Sometimes people just want to show an example of their work and not list it for sale and one way to do that is to put a high price on it so that the item can be seen but not purchased. Per esempio, there is a beautiful Tappeto uncinetto straccio listed at $99,999 but it looks like it’s actually an example from a seller who really offers them for about $35. So always look twice at those high prices because they may be far more affordable than you think!
Quello che mi è stato fino a
And I made this soft crochet cowl.
I created a plan to participate in Superare la Stash. I didn’t end up completing the project but I did meet a lot of my goals. Un altro progetto ho iniziato e non è stata completata era il mio 365 Modi per indossare Crochet.
I shared an update of five things I’d learned so far from the Hooked Together project I was doing. Ho guardato il Di Ganci 4 U Blogroll. I still follow some of the blogs I learned about from this one including The LazyHobbyhopper.
I also launched my 2011 daily Awesome Crochet Blogger awards, which I’m doing again this year You can see the daily awards each afternoon in December to find out who is doing awesome things in crochet blogging.
