It's Crochet Month , let's celebrate with CGOA !

Thanks to my dear colleague and friend Kathryn Vercillo the Crochet  Expert, I learned that March is Crochet month...  It was initiated by CGOA  - Crochet Guild of America.
and no... you didn't miss anything .. I'm not american but I'm happy to adopt any excuse for a celebration ... so thank you CGOA for sending this great excuse our way !   

Kathryn posted yesterday a post on crochet.about.com with suggestions how to celebrate this special month , her full article is available directly through here " 10 Things You Can Do to Celebrate the 15th Annual NatCroMo" hop over there " , I warmly reccomd follwing her :)

It's crochet month

Reading through the post I decided to adopt the ones that are relevant to my little niche of wire crochet , so here they are :

1. Follow the Month-Long designer's blog tour - I WILL :)

2. Buy a Crochet Book - YES !

3. Teach Someone to Crochet - LOL.... I do this on a daily basis , so of course I'll do it on March too :) 

4. Learn Something New in Crochet - Great Idea , I've been wanting to learn how to crochet small baskets for ages now...

5. Crochet in Public - Love this , people are always so curious to see what I do there with that tiny hook of mine ...

6. Join a Crochet Community - I'll take it the other way round and invite crocheters to join YoolaISK - wire crochet community.

7. Wear Your Crochet - easy....

8. Crochet - easiest of all.... it's my day job and I LOVE it !

So how about you ? 

want to  join the celebration and win ANY 6 of my 6 wire crochet patterns in PDF+ video ? !!!!

all you have to do is leave a comment with ONE thing YOU are going to adopt on Crochet month .... super easy, told you ....

Each post will be considered as one entry , if you share on social media, specify it and you get an extra entry for each share of this post  and more chance to win !

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.

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.

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.

Great post and thanks for the alert : ) Such great ideas, that I can’t stop with just one : ) I plan/hope to celebrate NatCroMo by:
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.)
8. MOST IMPORTANT – CROCHET SOMETHING TO GIVE TO CHARITY <3
