crochet blog challenge

Each Wednesday I share posts that are part of the 52 Weeks Crochet Blog Challenge by Julie of Red Berry Crochet. Today’s prompt is to share what audio books or music we listen to when we crochet. I actually usually watch TV when I crochet (which is why I have so many crochet on TV roundups, I suppose!) but I do know that there are a few crochet-related songs out there in the world so I thought I’d share those today along with some other music related to crafting.

Crochet in Song Lyrics

    The singer/artist Sia toured a few years back with a crocheted stage set. I blogged about it. http://pattihaskins.wordpress.com/2011/08/04/sia-crocheted-concert-stage/ Add her to your list.
