NatCroMo13 with Underground Crafter!

Although I dabble in most of the needlecrafts and even teach knitting, I’m truly a crocheter at heart.  For the first time on my blog, I’ve actually been organized enough to plan a month’s worth of activities for National Crochet Month (also known as NatCroMo).  I’ll be posting about crochet awesomeness every day this month.  I even made a schedule!  (That exclamation point is equal parts excitement about NatCroMo and about being organized.)

Sundays: Hook reviews with giveaways

Each week, I’ll share a review for a different crochet hook.  I’ll also be hosting hook giveaways sponsored by The Crochet Dude by Boye, Denise Interchangeable Knitting and Crochet, Lantern Moon, Laurel Hill, and Susan Bates.


Mondays: Interviews with fantabulous crocheters

This month, I’ll post four awesome interviews with crochet designers, teachers, and bloggers.  (I’ll also share some mini interviews on other days of the week.)

Tuesdays: Book reviews with giveaways

I’ll be reviewing four recent crochet book releases and hosting your chance to win a copy, courtesy of Interweave, Leisure Arts, North Light Books, and Trafalgar Square Books.

Wednesdays: “Free Day”

I was a bit nervous about scheduling a themed post every day, so I’ve left Wednesdays open for whatever crochet-related post strikes my fancy!

On Wednesday, March 27, I’ll be participating in Crochetville’s A Tour Through Crochet Country.  This mega blog tour will include stops on over 40 crochet designers blogs/Facebook pages, along with a chance to support a wonderful charity, Project Night Night.  My March 27 post will also mark the second anniversary of my blog.  (Hint, hint: Perhaps there will be a giveaway…)

Saturday: My favorite online crochet resources

On Saturdays, I’ll be spreading the crochet love by sharing one of my favorite online crochet resources.


Since I’m hosting a lot of giveaways and reviews this month, I just want to remind my readers of my review policy.  So, without further ado, Happy National Crochet Month 2013!
