SPONSOR OPPORTUNITY: Look at Crochet Concupiscence by the numbers!

Kicking Off The New Year

I began the month by sharing my Crochet Concupiscence plans for 2015. I also did posts reintroducing the weekly Saturday Link Love posts and Sunday Instagram crochet posts for those people who need more info about how those work. I also recommended some Crochet Resolutions for a Crafty 2015, along with specific tips for creating a crochet plan, and provided a sample 12 month skill-building crochet plan.

And Some Special Thanks

Special thanks again to:

  • Artist Emma Leith (@EmmaLeithBox) for mentioning my roundups and link shares in her free crochet heart pattern / yarn bombing post
  • Amanda Lightfoot for this lovely comment: “Hi Kathryn! I love your blog! I check it daily to see your posts. I love crochet as well. Learned how as a young girl. I wanted to let you know that I crochet with a chronic illness. I am in stage 4 renal failure. I have dialysis treatment 3 days a week and am currently waiting for a transplant. I often crochet to help pass the 4 hours of each treatment. I have made numerous items for friends and family during treatments. Please continue to inspire others as you have and continue to inspire me.”
  • As well as Crystal Wall who commented, “Thanks for all the gorgeous pictures. I love all of them. You showcased a few projects that I saved. I love your blog, follow you on BlogLovin. Read every post. Thanks for great crochet!”
  • To Crochet In Paternoster for mentioning me in a blog post about crochet heart patterns
  • To @lionbrandyarn and @becraftsy for both mentioning me in their newsletters this month

San Francisco based and crochet-obsessed writer, dreamer and creative spirit!

    Thank you for mentioning me. Sadly, I didn’t know how to crochet when I went through my breast surgeries. I know it would have made treatment and recovery easier. I also realized that crocheting through this dark winter is helping with my seasonal depression. Its a stress reliever for me too. All this I have learned through your blog. You not only make beautiful things, you educate with yarn and art. Thank you for taking the time to care and share. I appreciate it.
