I write a lot of articles on random things over on HubPages. Um pouco para trás, they were having a writing contest and I did a series of articles that are kind of works of creative nonfiction about crochet. I don’t think I ever got around to sharing them here on the blog so I thought I’d offer you some links for fun reading.
The Power Of Dollar Yarn Crochet Rectangles
I went through a phase of making tons of crochet rectangles with cheap yarn, having no idea what I was going to do with those pieces. EU share that experience here and celebrate the process of crochet over the product (which I’m not always good at doing!)
Carta para o primeiro vestido que eu malha
That is the top of the first dress that I ever crocheted. And here’s the link to a letter I wrote to that dress about how it’s perfect even though it’s not. I also think that this piece really celebrates the imperfection in handmade items in general.
Dear Blanket That Must Be Frogged
Sometimes projects just don’t work out. É triste, but it happens. EU wrote out my feelings about it in a breaking-up letter to a blanket.
Lovely Letter to a Vintage French Yarn
Sim, this one is another letter – to a yarn instead of a project this time. Follow this link and you’ll also find out from this one what I considered using as my yarnbombing name if I ever got into yarnbombing.
