Een jaar geleden in haak (En een rustige Blog verjaardag)

crochet news  One Year Ago in Crochet (And a Quiet Blog Birthday)Olek, Vickie Howell, Coral Reef and Dolce and Gabbana all in crochet

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). Dat is oke … 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. Ik heb sindsdien geschreven over haar geweldige werk talrijke tijden. Ze nog steeds sterk, having just opened a brand new exhibit in London.

Haak boeken

The very first crochet book that I reviewed here on this blog was Vickie Howell’s terrific Pop! Gaat haak. This book shows crochet inspired by pop culture. I’ve since seen lots of great crochet in this area including ontwerper haak en crochet on celebrities. Ik heb ook verder na Vickie Howell als ze geblogd heeft, shared crochet and knit patterns and launched her new yarn line Sheep(ish).

Haak nieuws

Coral Crochet Exhibit 500x324 One Year Ago in Crochet (And a Quiet Blog Birthday)

A hyperbolische haak rif was on display at this time last year in Salisbury, VERENIGD KONINKRIJK. 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 De zusters Wertheim. 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.

Haak Quotes:

The crochet quotes that were featured on this site during this same week last year were:

“A loop after a loop. Hour after hour my madness becomes crochet. Life and art are inseparable.” -Olek

Knitting and crocheting is like therapy for a lot of people.” – Janna Milbradt

The best part about it is it’s me actually believing in myself and seeing my talent as something useful that makes people happy. It’s not just making money, you know?” -M.L. Kinnel

“Tea-stained laces, Victorian accents, ruffles and textured fabrics like Swiss dot and Haak reinforce this sense of vintage femininity.” -Marla Shavin

“I felt overwhelmed by the masses of circular creations that seemed to represent womankind’s challenge to answer the riddle of pi in neverending cotton lace.” -Sigrid Arnott
