I’m really pleased to share that I won two 2013 crochet blog awards.
Kathryn from Crochet Concupiscence awarded me her 2013 Awesome Crochet Blogger Award for Best Crochet Interviews for the third year in a row (!). (On a side note, wow, the pressure is really on now to come with some fantastic interviews! Luckily, I already have a few up my sleeve that I’ll be posting later this year.)
Kathryn is one of my favorite bloggers, and this is really an honor. I love her annual blogger award series and her weekly link love posts, which always introduce me to new crochet blogs. You can read my interviews with Kathryn here and here, and find out more about what I love about her blog here.
I’m sharing links to four of my favorite crochet interviews from 2013:
- Multilingual designer, Annette Petavy.
- Irish (mostly Tunisian) crochet designer, Aoibhe Ni Shuilleabhain.
- Designer, author, teacher, editor, and podcaster, Mary Beth Temple.
- Teacher, author, blogger, designer, and Tunisian crochet ambassador, Kim Guzman.
You can find links to all of my interviews (mostly with yarn industry professionals) here.
I’m happy to hear that my All Weather Cowl pattern (available for download here) was chosen by AllFreeCrochet as one of their 100 Favorites: The Most Popular Free Crochet Patterns of 2013, and so I’ve also been named one of their 2013 Top Bloggers.
This might explain why my Pinterest source page currently looks like this:
(Usually, there is a variety of different photos!) The All Weather Cowl is definitely one of my favorite samples to wear out. (I even wear it around the house when it’s extra cold.) I only wish the yarn I designed it with, Galler Yarns Aztec Boucle, hadn’t been discontinued this past summer. You could make the entire cowl with just one skein!
Perhaps this award will motivate me to make another sample with a yarn that’s currently available…
