crochet instagram

Sundays are usually the day on Crochet Concupiscence when we celebrate the best crochet on Instagram. I’m a day late because I was down for the count yesterday due to some kind of sun sick/ food poison/ flu bug thing. Feeling better today and ready to share the awesome Instagram crochet photos that I’m lucky enough to have people share with me.

And actually, I’m super excited about this week’s shares. There were some truly beautiful crochet photos shared from some of my favorite Instagrammers that come back week after week. And there were some new people who joined with great shares as well. I’m lucky to get the chance to see these photos and to share them here with you!

Your Crochet on Instagram

Featured Instagrammer

This week’s featured Instagrammer is Alexandra of CrochetingThruChronicDiseases. The first thing that you read about her in her bio is: “Raising awareness for chronic illnesses while having fun with crochet.” If you dig deeper and look at the info on her Facebook page you’ll learn more about her own personal journey through illness and how crafting has helped. You know that health-related crochet is super important to me so I was already excited about that as soon as she began joining in with the Instagram tags. Her Instagram feed is filled with joyous crochet work. You’ll find a lot of cute amigurumi and crochet dolls there. You’ll also find adorable crochet hats, especially animal designs for kids. Alex takes several photos of each WIP so you can see how it’s all put together and then see how the finished item looks from different angles. A fun feed to follow and a great person to support in crochet. Here are some of the things that she shared with us this week:

My Crochet on Instagram

Three pictures with chihuahua Miso … cuddled inside my crochet blankets, playing with a Lion Brand one pound yarn skein as big as her and in a mohair crochet sweater I made for her recently.

Three photos of a window storefront on my block that had a beautiful display of blankets … the first one reminded me of chevrons and stripes in crochet and the other two just had great yarn fringe I loved.
