Deze Week in haak 2011

shauna richardson crochetdermy

The crochet artist that I profiled at this time last year was Shauna Richardson, the artist who coined the termcrochetdermyand who is the creator behing the big Lionheart Crochet Project for the London Olympics. Her large-scale realistic-looking crochet animals are endlessly impressive to me and I also love the fact that she is eco-conscious enough to source local yarn for her work. Her crochet lions were recently on display at Twycross Zoo in het Verenigd Koninkrijk. I so look forward to learning what she’ll be doing next!

eerlijke handel haak rok

In crochet fashion I wrote about Edun, de eco-vriendelijke fair trade kleding bedrijf opgericht door Bono's vrouw, Ali Hewson. Hun 2011 collection included bohemian fashion inspiration from the Gypsy / Romany culture. At the time they were working with The Crochet Sisters, Kenyan artisan nuns. Helaas, there isn’t a lot of crochet in their 2013 spring collection; the sweater skirt shown above is the only piece I spotted.

beans for brains crochet scholarship

This was when I first learned about the Beans for Brains Scholarship Program, a really unique scholarship from @jimmybeanswool for crochet and knit designers. It is now in its fourth year. Applications will start being accepted on March 1, 2013 and will be accepted through the end of March. Scholarship info here.

Deze Week in haak 2012

Nu laten we eens kijken wat op de blog tijdens was deze datums in 2012.

haak voor yarnbombing

The crochet artists I looked at during this week last year were the yarnbombing artists that make up the group The Ladies Fancywork Society. They had just done a Haak taxidermie piece for a clothing/ craft store in Colorado. I haven’t seen any new large installations from them lately but I do follow their Facebook-pagina to see cool stuff about yarnbombing, art and Denver. (The Facebook page is where the above photo was posted). In other yarnbombing news at this time last year was an announcement from Knit the City about a yarnstorming bootcamp in het Verenigd Koninkrijk; they also offer workshops and other events periodically.

Dolce gabbana haak rok

In crochet fashion I did a roundup of some of the best Dolce and Gabbana crochet handbags. Ik zie geen haak portemonnees in hun huidige collectie (online winkel) maar er zijn een ew haak kledingstukken met inbegrip van de boucle raffia haak kokerrok hierboven. Ook in 2012 fashion I reviewed the little bit of crochet fom designer Elsa Schiaparelli; this brand is re-launching in mid-2013.


I wrote about a group of male gedetineerden at Folsom State Prison has made their very first donation of knit and crochet items to a shelter for women and children. This is one of many, many different programs in the California Department of Corrections rehabilitation program. The progrma, called the Lifer Crochet Group, is described ascompassionate community support via crocheted donations from inmates”. I think there are many benefits to gevangenis haak programma 's.

2013 Haak nieuws

En nu de haak nieuws van deze week, Dit jaar …

1. Jimmy bonen wol (mentioned above for the Beans for Brains Scholarship) has had a lot of media mentions recently. This is a great thing because this is a small yarn shop led by a strong woman (Laura Zander) that has succeeded in so many ways. Please watch the following video about her; it’s so touching. (En ja, Laura’s a knitter but the shop is crochet-friendly; see the posts I’ve done about their upcoming Haak Red project).

This video was posted by @TheStoryXchange. De New York Times did a nice article recently about how the brand was successful with social media. And Laura did a TED talk about the power of imagination:

Haak kanker

3. News in crocheting for cancer. “The loss of a parent is something people dread. But Hatboro-Horsham mathematics teacher Nicole Dow-Macosky, with the help of Learning Support teacher Susan Milnazik, turned her grief for the loss of her mother to cancer into a project that could help many chemotherapy patients. Dow-Macosky and Milnazik have organized Project Chemo Crochet by the Pink Warriors to make knitted and crocheted blankets for cancer patients going through chemotherapy.
