Happy Thanksgiving! Every year on this day I do a post about why I’m thankful for crochet. It’s important to me to do this because crochet saved my life and it continues keeping me sane, stable, and happy as well as connected to an amazing online and offline crafting community.
Today’s crochet prompt asks us crochet a project in monochrome. Since I hate changing colors in projects, a lot of what I’ve crocheted has been monochrome (unless I was working with variegated yarns, which I do love). So I’m showing off some of those past projects here today and I thought I’d also mention that I have a Pinterest board dedicated to beautiful monochrome crochet.
Today’s crochet prompt asks us to “learn or review the basics of color theory”. This reminded me of a blog post I did over two years ago that I thought might be worth re-visiting. It looks at 11 different colors and the typical impact that they have on mood.
I was invited to join in as a crochet blogger in the annual month of guest blog posts called Holiday Bake Craft Sew. You can join too!
One of the most recent trends has been a resurgence of popularity for the crochet V-Stitch.
You know what I’ve noticed over time? I’ve noticed that whatever is happening in my crochet work reflects what seems to be happening in my life.
How do you refer to your crochet work when talking to others? Do you call yourself a crocheter, an artist, a fiber artist, a crafter, a maker, a creator, a small business owner … or something else?
