This week I was thankful for many, beaucoup de choses et l'une de ces choses était la communauté des blogueurs crochet formidable que je peux être une partie de. Voici mon tour d'horizon des meilleurs postes de la semaine de cette communauté.

Quelque chose de spécial

Wow – an entire city is being yarnbombed. Streetcolor explique: “in March 2013 the entire port city of Genova will be yarnbombed or as they say in Italybombarded with yarn” . The city has set up more than a hundred different locations for people to meet and knitincluding libraries, senior homes civil service buildings, youth organizations and even a prison.

Crochet citation

I loved that Cami of Art, Comme le pain said this week:

One of the things I really love about crochet is how it makes me sensation. I love the entire process of creating something unique and useful. It may sound funny, but it actually makes me feel powerful!”


Crochet Chat Podcast. Another great episode from @freshstitches and this one is about the LYS where Stacey tells us about what a good yarn store should be like and how to comfortably enter one as a newbie.

I’m curious about the two cashmere yarns recommended in WEBS gift guide for knitters and crochetersespecially the washable cashmere!


Information on how to make one of these crochet singing birds yourself is available on Instructables.

    Thanks for the link love Kathryn! I had no idea anyone else was talking about ergonomic and hooks too! Guess we’re all tapping into the same crochet consciousness right now. I have struggled with my 3rd and 4th videos here the last two weeks for my challenge series. Hopefully I will be able to get them presentable by the end of next week. Took far longer than I would have liked on the first two. :/
