    I haven’t done any crocheting in ages. I hope to get back to it this month and when I do it is usually on the bus so I get many glances from the other passengers and perhaps manage to learn something new to crochet.

    I’m going to teach some of my co-workers to crochet. Two of them are expecting, so they want to make baby blankets. We are going to do it on Friday’s at lunch. I’ve been crocheting for over 30 years, and I’m really looking forward to sharing my craft with the younger generation. Thanks!

    During Crochet Month I will think of my grandmother (who taught me to crochet) as I continue to crochet a beautiful and fun blanket (using a couple of stitches that I’ve never used before) for my daughter’s friend’s wedding present.

  • Nancy J

    I didn’t know it was crochet month but I will crochet in public and learn a new crochet technique. I will also organize my pattern library as I’ve been putting that off for half a year now.

  • H Rose Drummond

    combine my wire weaving with crocheting. After all I have been crocheting since 1970 and only started working with wire in the 80’s. I have crocheted and woven baskets with yarn and other materials but not with wire. I made silk and yarn flowers but not wire. Time to combine my love of crocheting with my love of wire and see what I can do. Thanks for the inspiration. will share on Facebook.

  • Melissa

    I’m a knitter but am working on a pattern that is finished with crochet on the hem and sleeves. I will learn how to crochet and then hopefully wear my sweater!

  • Dawn De Luca

    I’d like to make a large dream catcher and learn to crochet the centre piece myself. ?

  • KraftyKelly

    1. Getting a new crochet DVD and enrolling in new online crochet classes
    2. Trying new stitch patterns and methods
    3. Finally inventory my yarn stash
    4. Organize my pattern library (well, that may take longer than a month LOL)
    5. Crochet in public
    6. Gift a crochet class to a younger stitcher
    7. Add new crochet hook styles and sizes to the toolkit (double-ended, circular, Tunisian, etc.)
