1939 is the next year up in the 50 Years of Crochet History blog post series. I love curating the history of crochet in this way!
I crochet all of the time. I crochet almost every day. And I often share photos of the work, or at least the works in progress, on Instagram. But it has been a really long time since I shared my crochet work here on the blog so I thought it would be a good time for a roundup of things I’ve made.
Karen Thompson is the author of the wonderful kids’ crochet book Crocheting with Lucy Loop. She is also a lifelong crocheter who has been dealt some tough blows and used the craft to help her get through them. She learned to crochet from her mother and the craft helped her to feel connected to mom even after she had passed away. When her own son was murdered, Karen was numb to crochet for a long time but eventually found her way back to it and has used yarn bombing to honor her son.
I was just taking a look online at Intertwined (Handspun Revolution) by Lexi Boeger, a book that celebrates the yarn spinners across the world who create beautiful yarns for us to use in our crochet work.
March is National Crochet Month (NatCroMo). Crochetville is hosting a month-long crochet designer blog tour with two blog stops each day. The participating crochet designers often offer free patterns and other goodies.
Each week there are more than 100 photos that people choose to share with the Crochet Concupiscence community through tags on Instagram. Here is an inspirational roundup showing what people are crafting.
This week’s edition of crochet link love features hot new patterns from around the web plus new things in crochet art, fashion, news and more.
At the end of each month I share a collection of the various things I’ve written about here and in other places all around the web. If you missed something, find it here. If you loved something, share this post with others!
