You may or may not know that I write a regular column for Interweave Crochet magazine. It’s called Everyday Crochet and it shares articles that I write based on interviews with people who share their experiences of the craft. In addition to the regular seasonal issues, Interweave has special issues, including Crochetscene, which has just come out for 2015. In this issue I’ve shared my article about Helen Wyatt.
Back in April I rounded up 20+ crochet interviews and they were a big hit. I’ve been keeping track of the new ones that bloggers are putting out there and wanted to give you a fresh new roundup with another 14 new crochet interviews.
I always like crochet stories about regular people who crochet. (I write my own “Everyday Crocheter column for Interweave’s Crochet print magazine.) Back in April, I rounded up 11 stories of interesting people who crochet. I’ve got another eleven links for you today.

A little while back, one of this blog’s readers, Flo, was in the midst of working on the Sophie’s Universe crochet project and shared some of her mid-project thoughts with us in a post that I did over on About.com Crochet. She’s since completed the popular crochet project and is back with an update and some tips.
Ann Benoot is a self-taught textile artist from Belgium who does terrific creative work with crochet art. She has been working on a beautiful series of crocheted Zentangle power animals that I find to be unique and interesting.
