Sunday was How Weird Street Faire here in San Francisco. This event kicks off the festival season in San Francisco – Haight Street Fair and Union Street Fair and North Beach Festival and Pride and so many other weekend street fair events and parades to follow but it all really starts with this one each summer. And this is the best one to spot amazing DIY fashion including lots of pretty crochet.
Dudes who can pull off an original sense of style don’t have to look any further than the Lord von Schmitt Etsy store for great options, the newest of which is legwarmers for men.
I thought I’d take a look back at some of those early Etsy crochet posts and see what’s still around on the web. Here’s what I loved then and still love now in Etsy crochet.
I profiled the work of Katherine Dempsey, owner of the Etsy shop A Danish Heart. One of the things I revealed there is that Dempsey is a fan of Doris Chan.
Mor Yom Tov is an Israel-based jewelry crafter who does beautiful work creating one of a kind crochet accessories.
Have you had a chance to look at the Summer 2013 issue of Interweave Crochet magazine? If so then you might have noticed my article (pages 72-73) showcasing the work of everyday crocheter Emily Depole.
Right now I’m feeling super inspired by the creative openwork crochet garment and accessories designed by Etsy’s Maria Hera.
