Happy February! How has the crafty year started off for you? January was a bit of a doozy for me in my personal life with tons of things happening that were both good and bad. I had lots of houseguests, stayed very busy, got way too stressed, let my personal boundaries get a little too trampled, got sick and then took the time to crochet, heal and re-establish my center of personal wellbeing. And during all of that, I kept on blogging!
Today I’ve got your roundup of everything that was on this crochet blog in January in case you missed any posts the first time around.
The Big News
The most exciting thing that happened this month was that I launched the fundraising campaign for my next book and multi-media project, which is called Hook to Heal.
Naturalmente, I shared several messaggi related to this on the blog:
- Example of a Crochet-for-Creativity Exercise
- How to Get Your Ad in Front of Thousands of Crochet Lovers Today
- How to Get an Advance Copy of Hook to Heal
- Get Crochet-Based Creativity Coaching Through Email
Some more big news of the month was that I ran a special free-on-Kindle promotion of Crochet Saved My Life for one long weekend and then dropped the price permanently from the former price of $9.99 to the new Kindle price of just $2.99.
E infine, I issued a challenge to try to get crochet represented more on Pinterest. Anyone who pinned my book’s cover image and left me a comment with their Pinterest handle was someone I’d go follow and pin items for. You can still do this!
One of the themes of this month was crochet shawls. The posts related to that, which I hope you found inspiring, erano:

This month I launched my new series called 50 Anni di storia all'uncinetto. I am taking one year at a time, starting in 1930, and seeing what I can learn about the crochet patterns, libri di uncinetto, crochet styles, crochet news and even crochet patents from that year. The posts so far:

Ho condiviso il lavoro del lettore Pamela che ci ha anche offerto un modello di cappello uncinetto gratis. C'erano alcune peculiarità con il pattern e che mi ha dato una grande opportunità di scrivere un post che spiega come un crocheter esperto può fare ipotesi per elaborare un modello che sta facendo non abbastanza senso.
