Whew … January was a busy month here on this crochet blog. Thanks to all my regular readers and commenters who make it such a joy for me to post every day. If you missed any of the posts during the month, you can find them in the recap below:

Most Popular January Crochet Posts

I personally really enjoyed my week long cross-blog crochet conversationwith Sara from Mom with a Hook. However, this month’s most popular post was my crochet artist profile of playground sculpture crochet artist Toshiko Horiuchi-Macadam.

New Features

In January I debuted my project: 365 Ways to Wear Crochet. I am loving the challenge of wearing crochet each day and photographing it for the blog. My favorite was my Chunky Grey Crochet Cowl. Did you have a favorite January photo?

January also saw the launch of One Year Ago In Crochet. I look back at what happened on this crochet blog during this week in 2011, providing updates where I can. I love looking back!

I also started featuring daily crochet job / volunteer crochet links and weekly calls for crochet submissions. I hope that these two new features will develop and improve as time goes on. Learn how you can help.

This year I’m doing a 12 in ’12 Charity Crochet Project. I made my first donation.

And finally, I’ve launched Friday Open Discussions where I pose a semi-controversial crochet topic and you can discuss it in the comments. I want to note that I had some serious problems with my commenting system in January. I appreciate all of the readers who gave me feedback to try to help me get it fixed. This blog has now switched to a new comment system and I hope the ease of it will stimulate more conversation in these open discussions. In January the discussion topics were taking crochet shortcuts, crochet in chain stores and honoring the craft.
