It’s the third week of my new series W tym roku, W ubiegłym roku, Rok wcześniej w Crochet. Let’s look at crochet news from January 14 – Styczeń 20.
This Week in 2011 Hak
The big news for this blog during this week of 2011 było … The blog was born! Crochet Concupiscence just celebrated its second birthday on January 15th, 2013. (That’s the very first header this blog had!) I’m excited to still be growing this blog and so appreciative of those who follow me here!
One of the core features of this blog has always been the crochet artist profiles that I do. The very first one, done during these dates in 2011, was a profile of Olek. People knew who she was at this time but her work was nearly as widely known as it is today. Olek is an amazingly prolific crocheter with some great large-scale exhibits and I look forward to seeing what she continues to do in the years to come. Some of my favorite posts about her since this first one were the close-ups of her tractor, the Olek video roundup and notes about her London show.
I also did my first designer crochet feature on this site during that first week of the blog’s launch. To było, aby ludzie wiedzieli o Dolce & Gabbana portfel szydełka , który sprzedaje do ponad $1300. W 2012 I shared a different Dolce & Gabbana portfel szydełka (shown on the left above) and that was one of the most popular posts ever on this blog. I’ve also done profiles of their designer crochet and compared that work to the much-more-affordable crochet from The Sak (shown on the right above).
This Week in 2012 Hak
Now let’s take a look at what happened on this blog between January 14 and January 20th in 2012 …
First there was the Stitch Mountain project: a collaboration between Red Heart, Jimmy Fasola wełny oraz U.S.. Stowarzyszenie na narty i snowboard (Ussa) to help bring awareness to knitting and crochet among the ski and snowboard industry.” Shortly after that post I compiled a roundup of Must Have Crochet Items for Skiiers. In more recent ski news, a professional Canadian skiier was using crochet to help raise funds to go to the Olympics. And in more recent Jimmy Beans news I’m super interested in their Stitch Red project.
The fiber artist I profiled during this week last year was amigurumi artist Andy Aguilar of The Dope Fiends. He crochets and knits creative characters and then uses them in videos and comics. In July I featured one of their videos as best crochet video tygodnia. I recently mentioned this artist again in my roundup of 20 terrific male crochet artists.
Also during this week in 2012 I did one of the first preview posts for my book Szydełka uratował mi życie. To było szydełka zdrowia post about the ways in which the craft can help people with PTSD to cope with anxiety, flashbacks and other symptoms. The book didn’t come out until the summer but I tried to share a lot of information during my research process. I continue to research and share this topic on the blog to this day, oczywiście.

News worth checking out from this week …
1. Baby Girl Injured with Crochet Hook. A one-year-old girl accidentally got stabbed in the throat with a crochet hook and had to be taken to the hospital but luckily she’s okay. I rarely think of my hooks as dangerous but they can be. Did you see the previous post I did on crazy crochet injuries?
2. There were two different nice stories this week about older women who use their crochet to help charities. First there is Rene who learned to crochet 90 lat temu and recently sold her work to help out a church fundraiser. And then there’s Josephine DeMassa, a 74-letnia kobieta who learned to crochet many years ago and recently accomplished the goal of crocheting slippers for every single member of a nursing home she adopted for the project.
