Of all of the blog posts I’ve read this week, these are the ones I loved the most.

Something Special

Although it’s not crochet-specific, I wanted to share an on-going series of posts I’m loving over @whipup. It’s the creativity guest series where guest bloggers from all walks of creative life chime in with their thoughts about creativity as it relates to business, health, parenting or “process”. The posts never fail to capture my interest.

Other Stuff

  • Olek’s Crochet Kicks. @boweryboogie (the ultimate resource on all things Olek) shared photos of some crochet shoes on a wire that had been Olek’d. This is actually from last week but I was slow on the uptake and still wanted to share. :) More recent news about Olek: She’s one of the 40 under 40 artists featured at the Renwick Gallery of the Smithsonian American Art Museum for the next seven-ish months. @Knithacker has her profile video for that.
  • Needleworkers in Action. @LasTejeYManeje always finds the best old photos and film stills of people knitting and crocheting. I know I’ve pinned several of their finds to my Needleworkers in Action Pinterest Board.
  • FaveCrafts Giveaway/ Project Linus Blankets. There is a giveaway happening right now that gives you an excuse to crochet for charity. Send a handcrafted blanket in to the FaveCrafts Charity Blanket Drive by July 15 and you’ll be entered to win a variety of prizes.
  • Ernesto Neto Crochet Nets Sculpture. @CrochetToday shared some beautiful photos of the huge crochet art installation in Buenos Aires that Ernesto Neto did (and I had mentioned in my writeup about the artist here).

And Some Special Thanks

Happy reading!

      @winkieflash Actually, I totally should have. I really loved your Ombre Market Bag this week! (http://winkieflash.nl/2012/06/25/my-slouchy-ombre-market-bag/) It didn’t make it into the link love roundup but I liked it on Pinterest. :) Thanks for dropping by and giving the nudge!
