2011 in haak: Dolce en Gabbana, poker afghan, Magda Sayeg, yarn drum

Each week I go back to these same dates on the Crochet Concupiscence blog last year. I look at what I was writing about then and update you about the things that have changed in relation to those posts. It’s a way for you to see things you might have missed and learn how crochet art, mode en design ontwikkelen in de tijd. At the end of the post is also a look at this date in crochet history. I hope it’s a series that you enjoy! Here is this week’s information

Haak Art

The crochet artist I profiled was successful yarnbomber Magda Sayeg. I explained that she’s primarily a knitter but also includes crochet in her yarnbombed work and that she sometimes works with other stitchers to complete large projects. What I enjoy about her work is its bold colors and the way she really adds some edginess to how crochet and knitting can be perceived by the genreal public. Sayeg is ingehuurd door verschillende grote merken, like Smart Car and Sudafed, om yarnbomb kunst in reclame brengen. Haar blog shows that she spent a lot of time traveling this summer, doing various art projects around the globe, and mentions two upcoming projects that I’m excited about: a pop-up shop and a collaboration with TOMS.

Haak Boeken

craft art book 400x617 Then and Now in Crochet (10/28   11/3)

I was reading a lot of craft books that weren’t crochet specific like Maria Elena Buszek’s Extra / Ordinary: Ambacht en hedendaagse kunst Then and Now in Crochet (10/28   11/3), which is about the role of craft in art over time.

crochet book Then and Now in Crochet (10/28   11/3)

Ik beoordeeld Leuke & Gemakkelijk Crochet Then and Now in Crochet (10/28   11/3) van Nicki Trench. I concluded that “Dit is met veel leuke projecten ontworpen om de beginner te nemen door een progressie van gehaakte vaardigheden een goed geschreven boek. Ik vind het leuk!” Nicki had a new crochet book come out in April 2012 genoemd Cute and Easy Crocheted Baby Clothes Then and Now in Crochet (10/28   11/3), which looks like a garment-based natural extension of the Cute and Easy Crochet book. Nicki is also has a brand new book out that I’m personally really interested to see called Geek Chic Crochet: 35 Retro-inspired Projects That Are Off the Hook Then and Now in Crochet (10/28   11/3). It’s filled with quirky-but-stylish modern garments based on vintage styles.

Haak Nieuws

My favorite news-y post from this time last year was a roundup of 25 crocheter interview links. Other news included:

twitter question mark Then and Now in Crochet (10/28   11/3)

De CraftSocial maandelijkse Twitter praatje was begonnen. Ik heb deelgenomen aan de oktober 2011 praatje waar we spraken over “crafting, hoe we onszelf identificeren als hobbyisten, hoe we mensen vertellen over de ambachtelijke werk dat wij doen, etc.”. Hoewel ik nog niet deelgenomen elke maand dat het beschikbaar is geweest, Ik probeer om te participeren in deze lopende chats als ik kan, want ik vind ze zeer nuttig, informatief en leuk. Ik heb deelgenomen aan de Oktober 2012 babbelen, ook, waar we besproken wat “waarde” betekent in handgemaakte bedrijf en hoe om waarde toe te voegen.

Ik deelde het verhaal van Rosie Margaret Perrin die nog steeds te haken op de leeftijd van 106. Ik heb geen een update over haar te hebben, maar vraag me af of ze nu nog bij het haken 107!

crochet hooks1 Then and Now in Crochet (10/28   11/3)

Veel mensen waren haken voor het goede doel; Ik deed een roundup post van 8 different news stories on that topic.

Haak Fashion

crochet coat Then and Now in Crochet (10/28   11/3)

My favorite piece in the Oktober 2011 celebrity / designer crochet roundup was this great coat by Cardon. I’ve since learned more about this Argentinian company founded in the late 1980′s. “Cardon set out to rescue the tradition of country clothing and accessories in the conviction that the identity of a people comes before fashion.Their work incorporates handcrafted details including, maar niet beperkt tot, haak. I like the brand’s overall approach and style.

Haak Quotes

Hier waren enkele van de slimme dingen die mensen zeiden:

“A beautiful edging is the perfect finishing touch to any design.”bron

“Granny and I have had an interesting relationship. I’m not going to pretend to be one of those crocheters who has always been enchanted by granny squares. Voor de meeste van mijn leven, granny squares were associated with tacky couches covered in clear plastic, saggy nylons, and the smell of mothballs. … It hasn’t been until recently that I’ve see the versatility in this classic shape, the vibrant color potential, and how fashionable granny squares can be. Granny’s everywhere, y’all, and she’s staying out late!" – Kunst, Zoals brood

“You might be under the impression that crochet design is a free flowing process from inspiration to finished project. It often involves more blockades then you’d expect.”Poëzie in Garen

“As a designer, Ik doe heel veel van swatching. Of gewoon voor de lol of met een specifiek idee in het achterhoofd, het maken van stalen krijgt me in de groef van het haken, en in een bijna meditatieve manier, lets my mind wander to think of new ideas.”Linda Permann

“Crochet has now established itself as a popular contemporary craft with people flocking to classes to learn this traditional skill that has somehow missed a generation, while the previous generations took it for granted as a handed-down knowledge.”Nicki Trench

Haak op Etsy

crochet coffee cup cozy 400x320 Then and Now in Crochet (10/28   11/3)

I compiled an Etsy Treasury called What’s Your Vice showing crochet items related to vices like gambling, roken en drinken. Cheeky plezier. The image above is a crochet sock monkey coffee cup cozy by CloudTwine, die ik opgenomen omdat koffie is mijn eigen persoonlijke vice. In werkelijkheid, Ik ook samen een blog post tijdens deze week vorig jaar met 5 gehaakte items voor koffieliefhebbers.


I was interested in ArtBin’s Yarn Drum as an option for organizing crochet hooks. I still think it looks like a good option although I haven’t tried using it myself.

yarn Then and Now in Crochet (10/28   11/3)

Ik beoordeeld Rowan’s Designer DK Wool. I concluded that although this yarn has been discontinued, het lijkt nog steeds op grote schaal beschikbaar zijn en kan de moeite waard zijn als je geniet van het werken met 100% effen kleur wol garen. Coincidentally, I worked with what I had left of this yarn just a few weeks ago to make a slouchy beret style hat. I do think it’s a decent yarn although I have since found other DK weight wool yarn I’d prefer such as Innamorata by Yarns of Italy.

Ik was het verkennen van de blogroll koppelingen in diverse blogs voor mijn Hooked Samen Project. Ik legde uit dat “one of my biggest goals of Crochet Concupiscence is to help strengthen that community by supporting the work that other crochet bloggers are doing as well as introducing those bloggers/ blogs to one another.Strengthening ties within our community continues to be something I enjoy doing.

Ik vroeg, my wonderful readers, to consider nominating me for inclusion as one of the Inside Crochet Top Craft Blogs. You came through for me and I was nominated and ended up being named one of the Top 5 Craft Blogs of 2011.

Deze dag in de Haak Geschiedenis

vintage crochet pattern Then and Now in Crochet (10/28   11/3)

I looked up this date in crochet history and found that a lot of newspapers in 1961 were featuring crochet patterns for sale by a designer named Alice Brooks. The image above is of one of those patterns, which is described as apractical set in white with gaily colored flowersthat will make your daughterlook as cute as she is warm!” The pattern could be obtained via mail for 35 cents plus the cost of shipping, which at the time would have only been ten cents.
