Top 7 Crochet-Sightings in 2012

The media frequently highlights crochet fashion on the runway, in magazine ads and in articles where celebrities strut their style in crochet. Over the years, journalists and writers have gotten better about labeling crochet 'crochet" instead of knitting. Be sure to check bag often and look at the "Crochet Sightings" tab  at the top of my blog for crochet sightings as they happen. 2013 has already gotten off to a good start.

Here's look at my favorite crochet-sightings of 2012.

National Crochet Month: A Fibery Celebration!

Crocheters across the nation have gotten creative in finding ways to celebrate their beloved craft during the month of March for National Crochet Month. Started originally as National Crochet Week by the Crochet Guild of America in 1997,  it has grown and grown and there is so much to celebrate that CGOA changed it to a monthlong event a few years later. Fibery people, CGOA members, and companies large and small are on the bandwagon now to draw attention to all we love about crochet!


What did you do to celebrate? I'm sure we educated many, many of the unenlightened during March ~ but calm down, Ryan...no physical violence allowed; just threaten with a crochet hook!

The Northern IL Chapter of CGOA has wrapped up its celebration  with our annual Crochet Buffet. It is always a feast for the senses and a smorgasbord for the eyes! Thank you to all the chapter members who displayed their beautiful crochet! We also filled the library showcase where we meet with crochet during the month.
