Best Foreign Language Crochet Award

Today’s awesome crochet blogger award is for the best crochet blog written in a foreign language. Although I was following a handful of these blogs last year, I really fell in love with foreign crochet blogs in 2012. They can always be translated, either through an on-site tool or using Google Translate, but often it’s enough to just see the visuals in the posts.

About The Winner

Las Teje y Maneje is a Spanish crochet blog with a built-in translation tool. This blog is all about celebrating the handmade, with an emphasis on crochet and knitting and is all about putting new twists on traditional crafts. This is an informational blog that links to many different projects, designers and artists around the web. Interspersed within this are posts about the bloggers’ own work. Las Teje y Maneje does a great job of curating this information in a way that definitely has a signature style.

3 Reasons The Winner Won

I have discovered so many wonderful foreign language crochet blogs this year that it was super tough to choose a winner for this award. Ultimately, I selected Las Teje y Maneje because:

  1. Las Teje y Maneje has introduced me to several new crochet artists. I love this niche part of crochet and there aren’t a lot of blogs, especially foreign language blogs, that focus on it so this is a plus for me.
  2. I adore the Crochetman series on this blog. It’s a photo-rich series of posts about men in crochet and knitting – wearing it, making it, designing it.
  3. The blog has cool retro-inspired style. It is one of those blogs that takes retro and makes it modern using a lot of interesting colors and visuals. Nothing gets lost in translation because there’s a clear sense of style here in the photos, the projects highlighted and all other aspects of the crochet blog.
