I’m doing something a little different for this week’s edition of the celebration of Instagrammers who crochet. You can see all of the various contributions by visiting #crochetconcupiscence, #crochetsavedmylife, #hooktoheal and #mandalasformarinke on Instagram. But today, we’re going to honor the work of one fabulous featured crochet Instagrammer who shared an interview with us about the Weather Scarf she spent last year making, sharing it in stages with us using the community hashtags.
I feel so lucky to be connected to the wonderful community of people that call themselves crocheters. I always love the opportunity to learn more about each of them, whether they are crochet designers, authors, artists or just lovers of the craft. That’s why I’ve always got my eye out for interviews and profiles of people who crochet.
She shares, “I’ve never been a very confident person. Crochet gave me the confidence that I could do something myself.”
Be sure to check out this month’s issue of Happily Hooked digital crochet magazine, Issue 20, which has my “Crochet Heals” column about Cassandra who crocheted first to relax and de-stress but later found the craft to help her through the difficulties of postpartum depression.
This issue also includes my monthly column on crochet health, featuring an interview with Maggie Bausola. Maggie worked as a nurse, which she had to stop doing after she developed hospital-acquired pneumonia and treatment-resistant asthma that left her debilitated.
Welcome to my stop on the All Koval blog tour for Imagical Seasons! The blog tour kicked off a few days ago and runs through July 22nd. I’m thrilled to be in such great company on this tour and to be able to introduce you to this unique and interesting set of crochet books.
I’m excited to share that I’m going to be part of the blog tour for Imagical Seasons, a set of crochet books by Alla Koval.
