Crochet Arte

Eu perfilado o trabalho de artista amigurumi Vanessa Chan. I loved her crochet creatures but more than that I loved the artistry of her super unique posing of those creatures for photos. Something new now in her Etsy Shop is that she’s selling crochet patterns and DIY crochet kits so that you can make what she makes.

I shared the work of Carolyn Yackel who combines math and crochet to create art. This photo is of her math-based Temari Balls (which are embroidery, não crochet, but definitely interesting). She showed these at the Bridges 2012 Math Art exhibit. I mentioned Yackel again recently because I was reminded a little of her work when doing my piece on artist Sophie Buckley.

Crochet Books

crochet book3 Then and Now in Crochet (11/18   11/24)

Um novo novel named Yes! had just come out, que é cerca de dois meninos adolescentes que começam um negócio de crochê. Infelizmente, I still haven’t been able to get my hands on a copy of this book so I don’t know how good it is. It has only received two Amazon reviews; a one-star and a four-star so that’s not very helpful. Has anyone read this crochet novel?

Crochet Cotações

Algumas das coisas que algumas pessoas inteligentes ditas:

“The nineteenth century was a century of innovation. The arts, fabrico, and trade flourished; dazzling new machines, inventions, and curiosities seemed to appear on the market every month. It was a time of fascination with science and technology, and the Victorians in particular tirelessly designed, improved, and experimented with devices that could make in a day what previously had taken months to complete by hand. It was inevitable that they would turn their unbridled energy, ingenuity, and talent to modernizing handmade needlecrafts.”Irina Stepanova

“If you LOVE doing crafts or art, parar de se preocupar com o que os outros pensam, ou que tem que haver alguma obra-prima, ou a necessidade de justificá-lo, provando seu valor em dólares. Algo muito mais valioso está acontecendo: your wellbeing.”Jafabrit

“There’s something incredibly nice about knowing that I’m crocheting lace with my grandmother’s steel crochet hook.”Zen of Making

“I love colour, isso não é segredo, Eu adoro estar imerso nas energias brilhantes e vibrantes que as cores criam, the way each colour has a different vibration that stimulates a different response from me.”Crochet com Raymond

I reviewed Lion Brand’s Wool-Ease Worsted Weight Yarn, que é “is a soft yarn thanks to the high-acrylic content and the plush weight of the yarn”. I was recently reminded of this yarn when Lion Brand did a terrific roundup of a bunch of their different wool yarns.

I crocheted the first doggie sweater I ever made for Betty, my friend’s cockapoo. Later I made her another. And my mom has crocheted for Betty também.

I had just launched Crochet Concupiscence em G . Can’t believe it’s been a year! It took me a little longer but I eventually launched a Crochet Concupiscence for Facebook também. My most recent news in social networking is the Crochet Saved My Life Grupo Ravelry.

And finally I shared my reasons to be thankful for crochet, which is something I’ll be doing again anew this coming Ação de graças day.

Este Dia na História Crochet

crochet animal patterns Then and Now in Crochet (11/18   11/24)

Olhei para esta data na história crochê e constatou que, em 1952 there was a newspaper advertising padrões de crochet for sale to learn to make Goldilocks and the 3 Bears. I found this interesting because most of the crochet patterns I’ve seen from this time were for doilies and home decor and wearables but not for stuffed animals. I also can’t help but notice the difference between crochet pattern advertised for sale then vs. now in terms of the image (drawing then vs. great photography now) and how much more information we have now to determine if we want to purchase a crochet pattern!
