2011 em crochê: Dior, Castaway Collection pillows, Amigurumi Bunny Kit by dawntoussaint, Oscar de La Renta

Geralmente aos domingos eu olho para trás para as datas da mesma semana em 2011 para ver o que aconteceu em crochê com base no que eu estava blogando então. Este mês o horário é um pouco instável devido as actividades ocupadas do blog em dezembro. Hoje vamos olhar para trás neste blog nas datas de 12/16/2011 através de 12/31/2011.

Crochê arte

I profiled the work of crochet artist and DJ Jennifer Xerri of Starlily Creations. She continues to do both of these creative jobs. The photo above is the artist at one of her recent events.

Crochet artist Magda Sayeg had her work featured in a Sudafed commercial, yarnbombing levando mais para o mainstream. Sayeg tem trabalhado em alguns projetos novos, which she shares em seu blog.

Livros de crochet

I reviewed this crochet essay book by designer Mary Beth Temple. Temple had a great new pattern book come out this year called Curvy Girl Crochet: 25 Patterns that Fit and Flatter.

Inspiração de crochê

Eu vi isso Martha Stewart knit blanket and wanted to see something similar in crochet. They aren’t the same but a couple that have reminded me of this blanket are:

Red Clover’s Long Weekend Blanket

e Anastacia Knits’ Vovó Ogunquit

New Species of Killer Sponge Looks Like Crochet Hook

Ajuntamento de 5 Crochet World Records. I referenced this post recently when I wrote about the crocheter cego who was trying to get a world record.

Crochê Fashion

I was in love with the granny-square inspired tights by House of Holland. I actually recently mentioned these again in a post calledlooks like a granny“. These tights are no longer sold through the brand but they do have some other cute tights, like their pink houndstooth tights.

I did a profile of Christian Dior crochet para meu Designer Crochet Série. I currently see no new crochet in the Dior online shop.

Citações de crochê

Algumas das coisas que disseram que algumas pessoas inteligentes:

“Motifs are great traveling projects. They are so small you can crochet them in line to almost anything. Why yes I have crocheted at long red lights and in grocery store lines.”CrochetByFaye

“Crocheting is a tactile process: the yarn runs through your fingers as you hold it.”Stacey Trock

“She might have entered the endeavor merely with the hope of having something soft and snuggly to wear the next time she heads out in the cold, Mas ela provavelmente vai andar longe dele, com a realização que o tiny, ajustes de atividade das mãos também faz maravilhas para sua mente. Em outras palavras, she’ll be hooked.”Celia Barbour

“We use them to carry delicacies from the market or to hold our latest crochet projects, as purses or carryalls—well, to tell the truth, we use them for just about everything. I’m talking about crocheted bags. These brilliant accessories are not only fun to crochet but are also the perfect canvas to showcase your crochet skills.”Toni Rexroat I also had a second quote from this CrochetMe writer: “Crochet is captivating in its beauty. Hundreds of little stitches are combined in millions of possible arrangements to create a final a final work of art, whether it is a lace collar of intricate thread crochet or a simple hat to keeps a child’s ears warm.”

“I have created hundreds of garments and accessories with everything from indifferent craft acrylic to luxury cashmere, in every weight from lace to super bulky. I maintain that every yarn deserves good design. Even if it takes extraordinary effort, long nights of yarn whispering, cajoling and tussling, eventually every yarn must speak to me.”Doris Chan

“Knitters, crocheteiras, quilters and other crafters generously give the work of their hands to family, friends and charitable causes year-round. But during the holiday season it seems even easier to give.”Projetos por KN

“The thing I love most about crochet is the endless possibilities for projects. You aren’t restricted to making wearable items, peças de artesanato, household items, tote bags or purses. You can do it all.”Crochetbird

“I think women don’t necessarily identify crocheting or embroidery with the old role of the housewife and therefore it is instead seen as another accessible medium through which designers and artists can express themselves.”Yanina Schenkel

“Crochet has had more ups and downs than any other known form of handwork and has even been considered a lost art during many periods of time. But the craft has proved invulnerable and has always survived, even after long periods of almost complete stagnation.”Liz Blackwell

“The new year is a time for reflection for many of us. Crocheters are perhaps more reflective than most.”Crochet dentro

Crochê na Etsy

I interviewed Etsy shop owner Castaway Collections. This year I’m really loving the interviews done on the Castaway Collections website of photographers who work with creative handcrafted props.

I also interviewed Aprile of The Steady Hand. This year Aprile and I did a cross-blog conversation.

I put together a treasury of the best in DIY crochet kits. Meu 2012 favorite sare probably the ones from FreshStitches (like the owl kit shown above).

I also did an Etsy treasury of black and white crochet items. It included this pretty necklace by Rosiescosies.

And I did a treasury showing the 12 most expensive crochet items on Etsy. This year it turns out that a lot of the items that come up in a search like this aren’t actually high priced. Sometimes people just want to show an example of their work and not list it for sale and one way to do that is to put a high price on it so that the item can be seen but not purchased. Por exemplo, there is a beautiful crochê tapete de pano listed at $99,999 but it looks like it’s actually an example from a seller who really offers them for about $35. So always look twice at those high prices because they may be far more affordable than you think!

O que eu estava fazendo

I had completed my 2011 book about awesome elderly crocheters. This book recently got a recommendation from Crochê rainha Gwen Blakley Kinsler. I am now working on 2012 livreto.

I finished crocheting this blue and white bag. I also made quite a few other crochet bags.

And I made this soft crochet cowl.

I created a plan to participate in Superar o Stash. I didn’t end up completing the project but I did meet a lot of my goals. Another project I started and didn’t complete was my 365 Maneiras de usar Crochet.

Eu compartilhei uma atualização de cinco coisas que eu tinha aprendido assim longe de ser o projeto ligado juntos eu estava fazendo. Olhei para o Por ganchos 4 U Blogroll. I still follow some of the blogs I learned about from this one including The LazyHobbyhopper.

Comecei a minha 31 Dias de Crochet brindes para o mês de dezembro. Este ano em vez disso, eu estou fazendo um 12 Dias de sorteio de Natal de crochê.

Também lancei meu 2011 diariamente Impressionante Crochet Blogger awards, which I’m doing again this year You can see the daily awards each afternoon in December to find out who is doing awesome things in crochet blogging.
