Post image for Interview with Kathryn: The February Crochet Questions

Durante todo o mês eu pedi uma variedade de diferentes tipos de questões relacionadas com o crochê em vários sites, incluindo Facebook, G e Chilro. I rounded up all of the best answers in a post on this blog earlier today but what I haven’t shared are my own answers to these same questions. Get to know me better by learning what my responses are to the #crochetquestionoftheday from February.

Existem muitos estilos diferentes de arte crochê de mixed-media arte a arte da forma wearable. O que você gosta na arte de crochê?

This is a tough one for me to answer because arte crochê is probably my favorite aspect of crochet and I love so many different parts of it. Some of my favorite types of crochet art include:

Se você estava indo fazer crochê um item para caridade hoje, o que você faz eo que causa seria para?

I used to do a lot of work with foster children and lately I’ve been thinking about the fact that I’d like to get re-involved in that in some way. One of the things I’m thinking about doing is finding a way to offer crochet healing to foster kids as a charity part of my Gancho para curar projeto. I’m not sure what I’d make; that’s something I’d have to think more about.

Opportunities that already exist for crocheting for kids in foster care include Dê uma buzina (crochet owls for foster kids), Um pouco de conforto e a Lenço Vermelho Projeto.

Como você se sente sobre a tecelagem em extremidades?

I hate it. It’s the reason I don’t do a lot of motif-based projects or projects with a lot of yarn color changes.

I think that there’s something really beneficial to learning to work through this. I’ve seen some really great attitudes about how this is just a part of the process. O que posso dizer, as someone on the path to crochet enlightenment I myself am a Work In Progress.

O que você acha de em termos de estilo quando se trata de fazer crochê? Boêmio? Contemporâneo? Feminino? Que palavra você usaria?

I am always looking at crochet on the runway and designer de crochet so I actually really think of how crochet can be worn in high style. When I think crochet, Eu acho que “uniquely chic”. Within that, claro, there can be plenty of other style terms that apply.

Can’t do it! I read too many of them. This is the whole reason that every Saturday here on the blog I publish Crochet Link Love sharing all of my favorite crochet-related links from numerous blogs around the web. So I’m going to skip this impossible question!

Qual você acha que seria torná-lo mais dinheiro - vender seus itens de crochê acabados ou vender o seu padrão original(s)?

(Esta pergunta foi realmente colocada em um post sobre a CraftGossip.com.)

I actually thought at one point about doing both of these things. No final, eu percebi que o que eu tenho a oferecer é a minha escrita e que, finalmente, o que não só irá me fazer dinheiro, mas também me faz feliz, está se concentrando no trabalho de escrita que eu possa fazer em crochê, incluindo a escrita deste blog, a escrita de artigos de revistas de crochet e da escrita dos meus livros.

Dito, Eu sei que a partir de discussões com um monte de designers diferentes de crochê que a melhor maneira de ganhar dinheiro é diversificar sua fonte de renda e vender ambos os padrões de crochê e itens de crochê acabados, equilibrar o seu tempo como necessário para fazer tanto tão rentável quanto possível.

Que meios mistos ou peças de artesanato (tal como botões, fitas, etc) ir bem com o seu crochê?

Agora eu estou realmente interessado em combinar crochê com colagem, so I’m figuring out how to put 3d crochet onto canvas and compliment that with papel, fotografia, magazine cut-outs, tecido, etc. to create mixed media art.

As far as adding other craft items to my wearable crochet, I keep it simple since I don’t really like sewing but I’d love to explore more creative use of cool buttons.

Complete a frase … Eu amo crochê porque …

I love crochet because in so many ways it saves my life.

Alguma vez você já malha uma boneca ou bicho de pelúcia? Conte a história sobre isso aqui!

CIMG0003 400x531 Interview with Kathryn: The February Crochet Questions

I crocheted a set of ninjas. It was the only custom request that I’ve ever been hired to do. The lesson I learned was that I don’t want to crochet items for sale, particularly custom items. The other lesson I learned is that even thought the actual crocheting of the amigurumi parts was a lot easier than I expected to be I didn’t enjoy the process of making the dolls because I don’t like stuffing, joining and weaving in ends (veja acima!) :)

Qual foi a última coisa que você comprou relacionado com crochê? (Que fio, que padrão, que ganchos, etc?

Essa é uma boa pergunta. I have actually been really good about not adding anything to my stash lately so I haven’t purchased much. I’m lucky enough to receive a lot of different items, embora, sometimes because people want me to review them, sometimes because people are just generous and recently as part of a sponsored post program.

Some of the cool items I’ve got right now that I’ll be telling you about in upcoming posts include:

Where do you buy your yarn? What do you think the pros and cons are of buying local/ indie yarn?

I buy my yarn from a variety of sources but I think that there are a lot of Boas razões para comprar Fios local.

Qual é o menor item que você já malha?

When I was crocheting the ninjas mentioned above I realized that one of the arms wasn’t working right. I took what I had and converted it into a tiny little basket. I wish I’d taken a picture of that but alas that one is lost to time.

Qual é o maior item que você já malha?

crochet blanket Interview with Kathryn: The February Crochet Questions

Crochet blankets are the largest items I’ve made to date. One of my goals is to make a large scale crochet wall art installation that covers one entire wall in my bedroom but that’s a project that is currently being dreamt of rather than worked on.

Você usa marcadores de pontos? Que tipo você usa? Para que projetos / propósito?

I don’t use stitch markers. I usually don’t work in the round, which is the only time I can see really wanting to use them. When I do crochet in the round, it’s usually a small project that I do in just one sitting and I’m typically comfortable counting my stitches as I go so that I don’t need stitch markers. I will fully admit, contudo, that I’ve joined in the wrong place when doing sc in the round on more than one occasion so I think it’s smart to use stitch markers even if I don’t practice what I preach.

O projeto de crochet você completou que você mais se orgulha de?

One of the first crochet dresses I ever made without using a crochet pattern was a pretty proud project for me.

O livro de crochê que você encontrou o maior desafio de uma forma positiva?

In terms of technique there are some great advanced crochet books that I’ve found challenging and that helped me grow a little bit as a crafter. As orelhas de Dora Stein Camisolas Personalizado Crocheted and Kristin Omdahl’s Seamless Crochet Interview with Kathryn: The February Crochet Questions are the two that immediately come to mind.

One of my favorite projects that I challenged myself with that included using a crochet book was to spend an entire month working through the crochet patterns in Sharon Silverman’s Cachecóis Crochet book and keep a diary while doing that.

Você crochê algo para alguém e eles não respondem da forma que você queria que eles. Como você se sente? O que você faz? Como isso afeta o futuro de crafting?

I posed this question because it’s something that I’m going to cover in more depth in one of the chapters in my upcoming book, Gancho para curar, which will be out this fall. It’s something I’m still thinking about so I’m going to hold off on answering in full at this time but I’ll come back to the blog and share more as I form more complete thoughts about it!
