Back in August I published the story of Joe, a disabled veteran who crochets for charity to help him through PTSD and other health issues. At the time, he was in need of yarn, and several of you stepped up and sent donations his way so that he could continue to heal himself and others through crochet. I thought that you might like an update about what he’s been doing since then.
Debbie is back to share some amazing photos with us of three outfits that she has crocheted for drag queen Katya to wear on stage. From evening wear to wearable art, these three pieces are stunning!
Linda D. is a 40-something mother, crochet designer and woman with Asperger Syndrome. In this interview, she shares what her life has like, how crochet has been therapeutic for her and why she didn’t learn the craft until just a few years ago.
All month long I shared the daily Awesome Crochet Blog Awards. Here’s a roundup of the winners in case you missed any!
This specific award is for the crochet blog that shares the best information about yarn. That could be yarn reviews, yarn industry news or any other aspect of fiber info that is of interest to people who crochet.
This specific award is for the most variety in crochet blog posts. It goes to the crochet blog that regularly features an array of different types of crochet posts such as reviews, tutorials, pattern roundups, interviews, etc. By doing great posts about all different areas of crochet, the blog helps to support the crochet community in a number of ways.
This specific award is for the most unique crochet project/ pattern of the year. It’s shocking how many crochet items are made each year and shown off all around the web. Each one is special, of course, but after awhile they can all start to look the same. That’s why it’s so wonderful to see truly unique crochet patterns and projects that are innovative and different from everything else that’s out there.
