My campaign with #CAREKnowsHow is about to come to an end and you could really help me out by visiting the story sharing page today. You’ll find inspiring information there about CARE programs including how pink bed sheets got more women to visit health clinics, fog was turned into drinking water and replacing chickens with ducks improved life in flood zones.

Here are this week’s awesome Instagram shares.

Featured Crochet Item

There were two really powerful crochet images this week that I just loved!

First up is this image from @woolyana who is working with methods of stiffening lace crochet:

And then this bold image from elzavan912 who writes: “Supporting #redmylips2015 for April. If not on the lips, I’ll rock my #crochet pin.”

Featured Crochet Instagrammer

cozamundo instagram crochet

This week’s featured crochet Instagrammer is Corinne Petfor AKA @cozamundo. She says right in her IG tagline that she shares photos of crochet, cats and “babyspam” and indeed that’s what you’ll find there with an emphasis on beautiful images of crochet. I love the images where she places crochet work off-center in photos against wooden floors and the images with close-up detail of her great crochet texture worked in deep, vibrant colors. Corinne is a UK-based crafter who also has a Folksy shop. This week she shared:

Crochet Mistakes and Problems

This week a lot of people sought support from the community as they experienced the disappointment of running out of yarn mid-project, getting yarn all tangled and other common crochet problems. Although not a mistake, I also included the photos here that were of needing to weave in yarn ends. The work is all beautiful!
