If you follow my Sunday Instagram roundup posts then you’ve already seen some of the magical, inspired work that artist Oliviartcreations has shared there. I love what she does. It has a tongue-in-cheek sense of humor and a terrific sense of color, and I wanted to share more of it here with you today.
Most of you probably know that I’m the About.com Crochet Expert. I’ve had the position for about a year now and in that time I’ve done a little over thirty crochet book reviews on that site. I wanted to round them up here for you today so that you can see what crochet books out there might be missing from your own craft library.
I am endlessly surprised by the stunning beauty and creative innovation that courses through my Instagram stream each week, including those photos that people tag with #crochetsavedmylife or #crochetconcupiscence. You’ll find many of those photos here in this week’s roundup but be sure to check the tags to see them all!
At the beginning of this year I shared with you how much I love the crochet fashion in Etsy shop RuchkiKruchkl. I follow this designer regular on Instagram and have been so infatuated with all of the recent photo shoot photos in that feed that I just had to share a few with you here today!
I introduced you to the world of CeliaB in late 2014, sharing her amazing colorful crochet fashion collections. I thought I’d give you an update of the fabulousness the brand has been creating this year. Early in the year we saw the Siamese Dreaming collection and now there’s an autumn/ winter collection called Midnight in the Oasis. Both are beautiful.
It’s always fun to spot crocheted items on TV and even better when you see people actually crocheting. Here are some shows and movies where I’ve spotted it recently.
Yesterday was Granny Square Day on Instagram, a holiday started last year by Susan of suregal27. It was really fun to follow along with that yesterday and you can see the photos on Instagram by checking the hashtags #grannysquareday and #grannysquareday2015. I’ll share some of those photos at the end of this post, but now let’s look at all of the other awesomeness shared on Instagram this week by the people who tagged in with #crochetsavedmylife and #crochetconcupiscence in order to be part of this weekly roundup.
