I just realized that I have been blogging here at Crochet Concupiscence for a year now. I knew that the one year birthday of the blog was coming up and had planned to do something special but then it kind of slipped by quietly (on January 15th). Tudo bem … in quiet honor of the blog’s special day I’m launching a new weekend featured showing what was happening on the blog this week one year ago.
The very first crochet artist that I profiled on this blog was Olek. Eu já escrevi sobre seu fantástico trabalho inúmeras vezes. Ela ainda está indo forte, having just opened a brand new exhibit em Londres.
The very first crochet book that I reviewed here on this blog was Vickie Howell’s terrific Pop! Vai Crochet. Este livro mostra, inspirada na cultura pop crochê. I’ve since seen lots of great crochet in this area including designer de crochet e crochê em celebridades. Eu também continuou após Vickie Howell como ela tem um blog, shared crochet and knit patterns and launched her new yarn line Sheep(ish).
A hiperbólica recife de crochê was on display at this time last year in Salisbury, Reino Unido. This was when I started learning about the cool coral reef crochet project that has spread all the way around the world thanks to the hard work of As irmãs Wertheim. During this same week last year I also wrote about a cool hyperbolic crochet cactus garden.
Another news bit that happened at this time last year was that there was some concern that crocheters may be affected by the rising cost of yarn. This is still an issue of concern today; just last month KnitPicks explained why some of their yarn prices are going up.
Finally I wrote my first post about women crochê para uma causa. It was about a group of five elderly women who crochet together to donate to a variety of different causes.
I did my first designer crochet feature on this site during that first week of the blog’s launch. Foi para que as pessoas saibam sobre o Dolce e Gabbana bolsa de crochê que vende para mais de $1300.
