Interview met Kathryn: De januari haak vragen

Earlier today I published the best answers other people gave to my Januari haak vragen van de dag. I thought you might want to get to know a little bit more about me by learning my answers to the same questions. Hier zijn ze.

Wat zijn uw 2013 Haak doelen?

Ik besprak mijn Haak doelen en mijn Haak bloggen doelen here on Crochet Concupiscence at the beginning of the month. Some of my goals in my own crafting include to learn a new technique, practice more mindful crochet, take a crochet class, and challenge myself with a large motif-based project.

Wat Is uw favoriete haak steek?

bullion crochet

Mijn favoriet om naar te kijken is de bullion alleen omdat het zo verschillend is maar het is niet dat leuk om te doen met de meeste garen typen. I like post stitches a lot. My favorite classic stitch is the hdc, specifically a ribbed hdc.

Hoe noem je jezelf?

I am not afraid to call myself an artist but it is more common that I just say I’m a crocheter or a lover of crochet. I also say I’m a crochet blogger and crochet author, Natuurlijk.

Wat is uw haak bedoeling?

“Haak is een manier om mezelf en anderen te genezen. Ik zal altijd komen om het met een creatieve en open geest en een verlangen om het te gebruiken om goed te doen in een kleine manier.”

Hoe wil je leren haak?

I’m sure I’ve mentioned in the past that I tend to learn best from reading. As a result I usually prefer written instructions for crochet. If I’m going to use something visual, Hoewel, I’d prefer a video to drawings or symbol charts.

Wat tijdperk van haak je het meest interesseert

I really like 1970s crochet art, die ik heb gegroeid geïnteresseerd in meer en meer als heb ik onderzocht het tijdperk.

Interessant, my more recent research into 1930s haak is also making me a fan of that era of the craft, which is not something I’d thought about much before now.

Wat denk je over Granny pleinen?

I love to work on large granny squares that have only a few color changes. I don’t like changing colors or joining squares so I don’t do the motif-style granny projects much although I love how they look when others do them!

Die in je leven vind je het leukste Haakvideo items voor?

I have to confess that it’s myself. I do also enjoy making special items for friends and family but I tend to crochet more for me than them!

Hoe heeft uw gezondheid door haak geholpen?

crochet saved my life on kindle

Uiteraard, Dit is een onderwerp dat ik nooit genoeg van praten over, Ik overwegen schreef een boek over het!

Wat is uw mening van merk ontwerpers die haak in hun start-en landingsbaan werk opnemen?

I love checking out the creativity of designer crochet and brand name crochet. I don’t purchase it but I like seeing it and sharing it. I definitely think if you’re going to buy it then it’s ideal to make sure that the designers are offering fair compensation to their crocheters since this is a handcraft that can’t be done by machine but other than that I think it’s a terrific thing to see!

Wat is de beste manier om uw haaknaalden organiseren? Hoe u sorteren en ze opslaan?

Ik reeds geworden enkele geweldige ideeën about this from asking it last year but don’t honestly do much of anything special with mine. A friend made me a lovely crochet hook case out of fabric and I keep everything in there or right in the work that I’m working on.

Als u kon nemen een Haak retraite in elke stad van de wereld, waar zou je kiezen?

I’m currently infatuated with the idea of spending a relaxing vacation on a beach in the Mediterranean islands of Greece so I’d pick there. I’d love to crochet some type of dress for myself there so that every time I wore it I’d be reminded me of the experience!

Er is een heleboel math in haak. Hoe voelt u over dat?

I love exploring how math, science and art can all be incorporated into crochet. I love it as a concept. I don’t actually pay much attention to the math in crochet when I’m crafting something myself, Hoewel, unless my stage of the pattern absolutely requires it!

U hebben ooit iets die u waren Haakvideo kwalijk? Waarom? Wat je eraan doen?

I learned early on that if I have to make something, meaning I committed myself to it for one reason or another and someone else is expecting it, then I rarely enjoy the process. I deal with this by not taking on projects for other people and just crocheting what I feel like crocheting so that it can remain something that is a true joy for me!

Wat voor soort haaknaalden zijn uw favoriet? Aluminium? Staal? Handgemaakt? Specifieke merk?

Aluminium haaknaalden

I love looking at beautiful glass and hand carved wooden crochet hooks but I prefer working with Boye aluminum hooks.

Wat zijn de positieve en negatieve dingen die je tegen jezelf zeggen als u haak?

I actually try to practice indachtig haak in which I observe all of my thoughts without any sort of judgment. Echter, sometimes I actively incorporate affirmations into my crochet work and will say things like, “My creativity heals myself and othersas I complete each row.

Welk stadium van de haak proces heeft u het meest genieten – planning van het project, werken op het of de voltooiing van het?

My answer to this one seems to change a lot but right now it’s the process of working. I’m actually crocheting this humongous hyperbolic crochet art piece all in blue right now and I am just growing it and growing it and growing it and not even thinking about when it will end but just loving the rhythmic process of seeing it unfold.

Wat is de #1 manier die haak maakt u voelen creatieve?

It allows me to do an artistic thing in my own way in a setting that doesn’t invoke a lot of judgment.

Wat zijn uw favoriete Haak boeken?

I love the smart advanced crochet technique books like Dora Ohrenstein’s Custom Crocheted Sweaters and Kristin Omdahl’s Seamless Crochet. I love the crochet books from the 1970s that feature projects from multiple designers, such as Creative Crochet. And I’m hoping to read more crochet fiction and non-fiction.

Welke TV-show of film hebt u gezien dat haak daarin heeft?

1970s haak deken

I’m always spotting crocheted items in different shows and movies! Life on Mars has 1970s style crochet afghans in the background of some scenes, bijvoorbeeld, and Ugly Betty is known for featuring some crochet. The clip that comes to mind of someone actually working on crochet is from The New Girl.

Wat voor soort materiaal wil je haak met andere dan garen?

I have tried working with different materials like plarn, Mizhuki paper cords and rags. Uiteindelijk, Hoewel, I have to confess that I strongly prefer the process of crocheting with yarn, especially soft yarn like silk bamboo yarn and baby alpaca yarn.

Wat heb je gedaan (Als er iets) om te worden eco-vriendelijke in uw haak werk?

  • I’ve participated in the Iets in het Water eco-art crochet project using plarn.
  • I frequently purchase local yarn and yarn from indie dyers and spinners who work with organic, sustainable sources.
  • I constantly frog unused projects and repurpose the yarn.
  • I buy used yarn through thrift stores and other secondhand sources.
  • I try to spread the word about eco-vriendelijke haak through my blog.

Een patroon die u doorwerkt werkt niet uit. Wat voor werk doe je?

I actually don’t often follow crochet patterns because I kind of just like to make it up as I go. Echter, this is definitely an issue that has come up when following patterns. I wrote a post this month about the main thing I’ll do in a situation like this which is make basic crochet assumptions to adjust the pattern and try to get it to work. If that doesn’t work I usually let the project go and do something else but if I really wanted to make the item or thought that the problem was that I didn’t understand something then I might contact the designer or turn to Ravelry forums to get help working through the piece.

Wat zijn uw gedachten over mensen die haak items voor hun huisdieren?

So I confess that I used to be unnecessarily judgy about this, denken “what the heck, pets don’t need clothes!” En vervolgens … then I started crocheting clothes for the pets in my life and I totally love doing it. And some of the pets actually really like wearing clothes!

Hoeveel haaknaalden doe je eigen? Hoeveel is te veel?

I actually don’t keep that many crochet hooks around. I have a set of D-K from Boye. I have a few loose hooks of random sizes from Susan Bates, a lite-up hook, a bamboo hook and two large hooksan aluminum N and a plastic Q. I have a set of about eight small size thread crochet hooks that I never really use. So what is that – over 20? 25? I’d like to get a set of glass hooks and a set of wooden hooks although I’m sure that’s more for show. So too many for me personally would be maybe 5o but I think it’s wonderful when people have really cool large collections of hundreds of interesting crochet hooks.

  1. Nice I should answer these for myself.

    • @undergroundcrafter Are there any others that you like? I periodically try new ones but always go back to Boye.

      • @CrochetBlogger I’m strictly about Boye when it comes to “regelmatige” haken. For fancy hooks and comfort hooks, I like Tulip Etimo and the Eleggant Hook (an ergonomic hook handle that uses Boye tips). I have a Crochet Dude hook, ook, which is pretty similar to the Etimo in terms of comfort. I can’t quite decide how I feel about the Addi Swing. Soms, it seems to make my hand feel better and other times it doesn’t seem as comfortable. All of these have similar points to the Boye hooksI really don’t like the points that are flattened like Susan Bates. I seem to really split the yarn up with those.

        • @undergroundcrafter I’m with you on the Boye pointsI don’t know if it’s just because that’s what I learned on or what but that type of point on the hook is what’s most comfortable to me. Hadn’t heard of the Eleggant Hook handle beforewill definitely look it up out of curiosity.

        • @CrochetBlogger I reviewed it here: http://undergroundcrafter.com/blog/2012/04/16/battle-of-the-egg-shaped-crochet-hook-handles/ It takes a little getting used to, but for me it prevents hand cramps when I’m doing major crocheting.

        • @undergroundcrafter Good to know. People always ask me about stuff like that so now I’ll have a review to point them to as one resource.
