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…)
Thursdays: Vintage Needlecrafts Pick of the Week
This month, all four of my Vintage Needlecrafts Pick of the Week posts will focus on a cherished crochet classic.
Fridays: Pineapples for Everyone Shawl Crochet-A-Long (free pattern)
I’ll be continuing my CAL throughout this month, and I can’t wait to see your shawls!
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!
