National Crochet Month Info


Please come back to visit this blog on March 30, when I will be the featured designer. I'll be introducing my newest book, Colorful Crochet Lace. On that day you'll be able to sign up for a drawing to win a copy, plus I'll be giving away a free, very easy pattern for crochet socks! (March 30 only)

I am amazed and very happy that crochet continues to gain popularity. It is a huge phenomena in America and all over the world among not only women and young girls, but among guys as well. People used to think that crocheting was only associated with females, and that it wasn't manly enough for guys. I always thought "Why not? Guys work with their hands in other ways such as woodworking and cooking, so why not knit and crochet? There are many men excited about crochet now, just as women have always loved doing it. I always take a project in my bag just about everywhere I go in case I get a chance to work on it. And almost every time I am sitting in a waiting room with my hands and hook working away, a guy will say "Is that crochet?" When I tell them it is, they go on to tell me their mother or grandmother taught them to crochet."

Amy Shelton and Donna Hulka, founders of the ever so popular Crochetville, are sponsoring the blog tour again this year and they have lots of goodies in store for you. I wish I had posted about this event before it began March 1, so you could have been following the tour all along, but on second thought, the reason you are here is most likely the fact you have been following it. And you probably know Crochetville is giving away beautiful yarn everyday, donated by Red Heart Yarns. Maybe you'll be a lucky winner!
