People are always welcome to tag their crochet makes with the #crochetconcupiscence tag for opportunities to be featured here and on my Instagram account. Here are some of those that I’ve recently featured.
I’ve had the opportunity to review a copy of Crochet in Black-and-White and am finding it refreshingly wonderful! I love the concept; as much as I love brightly colored crochet, there is something utterly fabulous about two-tone black-and-white designs. I love the projects, especially the inclusion of a few crochet art pieces for the home, which is not something that I see often enough in crochet books. And I love the design of the pieces, which use simple stitches in smart ways to really showcase the graphic appeal of black-and-white work.
I love the work that Ernesto Neto does creating large scale installations in crochet. When I saw that Knithacker had posted about a recent visit to a kid-friendly exhibit of his at Tonya Bonakdar Gallery, I realized I hadn’t checked into what he’s been up to in awhile.
I received a recommendation on Instagram from a friend to check out an account called CrochetAlbumArt, and I immediately fell in love and wanted to pass it along!
I think it’s always good to think about the reasons we love crochet and the things that we love about it.
It is always inspiring to see designer crochet hit the runways and the shows for Spring 2017 have been no exception.
There are terrific crochet designers, makers, artists, and bloggers all around the world. Today let’s take a look at some of the great crochet coming out of Australia.
