Crochet Quote

“Before you impose a yarn or fiber diet on yourself as a New Year’s resolution, consider a de-stashing plan first. It can be refreshing and healthy for both you and your local yarn shop.” – Aaron at Fiber Arts Blog from a smart post about how “yarn diets” can negatively impact your LYS.

Crochet News, Events and Info

crochet golden globes

Karen Viloria-Miguel is making crochet hats for the Golden Globes but what I really loved learning about was how she has used crochet to help her get through the difficulty of her husband’s diagnosis of a brain tumor.

wool show

The Second Annual Waltham Abbey Wool Show (@WAbbeyWoolShow) happens in UK on 1/18/15. It’s kicked off by Claire Montgomerie (@montyknits) of @InsideCrochet Magazine. Workshops include advanced amigurumi and crochet beanie hats. The event supports Age UK Waltham Forest.

crochet hats for Shaken Baby Syndrome

Prisoners in the Restorative Justice Program at the Women’s Eastern Reception, Diagnostic and Correctional Center in Vandalia, Missouri are making crochet hats to help raise awareness about shaken baby syndrome. I’m a huge fan of prison crochet as it provides a productive, creative way for inmates to use their time to do things like this that help others in the community.
