Posted by Underground Crafter on April 29, 2012 | Short Link

(This post is part of my Year of Projects: Crochet Master Class series. You can read the other posts in this series here.) I missed my YOP post last week (only the second time I’ve done that), and that was a real bummer.  But today I’m back with some more bullion stitch blocks!  These will be going to the Binky […]

3KCBWDAY7 – Crafting Balance
No Comments

Posted by Underground Crafter on April 29, 2012 | Short Link

I know how to do most needlecrafts, but if you’ve been following my blog you will already know that crochet is my true love.  Not only is crochet versatile and fast, but, since it is the one craft that I’ve done pretty much continuously since I learned from my grandmother back when I was 9 […]

I’m an advanced crocheter, but there’s always more to learn – and more people to learn it from.  As a crochet teacher, I consider it part of my own continued development to learn from other teachers.  Since last July, as part of the Year of Projects hosted by the Come Blog-a-long group on Ravelry, I’ve also […]

Since last week, I’ve finished another 17 (!) six inch squares for Crochetlist‘s April charity challenge.  These will eventually become blankets for Arizona children through the Binky Patrol.  I can definitely see how people get excited by granny a day projects.  Once you get on a roll, it is pretty hard to stop! I made […]

3KCBWDAY4 – A Knitter or Crocheter For All Seasons?
6 Comments

Posted by Underground Crafter on April 26, 2012 | Short Link

Seasonality doesn’t have much of an effect on my crocheting and knitting.  I probably make more blankets than anything else, and these are usually in response to events (new babies, new homes, engagements, etc.) that happen year round.  In years past, I was very good about planning ahead for the winter holidays, and actually made […]

I’ve been working on six inch squares from stash yarn as part of the Crochetlist April charity challenge.  These squares will end up going to the Binky Patrol in Arizona. What started as an effort to work through my stash while also working towards my charity crafting goal has turned into a slight obsession. The past […]

3KCBWDAY3 – Wildcard
28 Comments

Today’s topic is knitting and crocheting heroes, and I think it is well known that mine is my grandma.  However, I’ve been under a lot of stress at work these days (still on that 10-12 hour a day kick) so I decided not to write a dramatic post about missing my grandma and instead fantasize […]

3KCBWDAY2 – Photography challenge
40 Comments

Posted by Underground Crafter on April 24, 2012 | Short Link

      The backstory: I usually schedule my posts during the week, but I thought it would be more fun if I posted during each day for Knitting and Crochet Blog Week.  Photography is something that I’ve been working on since I started this blog, and today’s challenge definitely had me stumped.  (I’ve already […]
