Celebrating National Crocheting Month


March is one of my favorite months of the year for two reasons – first of all it is my birth month and secondly, it is National Crocheting Month. National Crocheting month is designed for those of us who really love the art of crocheting. Let’s be honest, if you love crocheting as much as I do, we really don’t need to have a reason to pick up a hook.

So I make a conscientious effort during this time of the year to focus on ways to express the passion I have for crocheting. I have decided this year to celebrate in four different areas;

To show my love to other, I am planning on carrying a crochet bag everywhere I go and publicly work on my projects.

To pass on the skill to others I have been given, I will teach three people to crochet in a beginning crochet class.

To share with others, I have started an afghan in February that I will give as a gift for a friend of my who is getting married on the 24th of March.

To further my own skill, I plan on choosing an online video class and work the project by 31st.

These are just a few of my suggestions, do you have a unique idea we can learn from?

Until next week, keep those hooks flying.


About crochetwithpassion

I have been certified through the Craft Yarn Council both in teaching and Instructor. I also have been teaching people to crochet for over fifteen years. This is what I will be doing through this blog. In the Crochet Master Class there are 18 projects. Some of the projects will be familiar to me such as Hairpin Lace; Tunisian Crochet; Filet Crochet; Double Ended Crochet; painted Crochet; Aran Crochet and Irish Crochet. However there are several in the book that are new and have peaked my interest and that includes the following: Woven Crochet; Tapestry Crochet; Entrelac Crochet; Fashion Crochet; Tassels; Bullion Stitch; Overlay Crochet; Bead Crochet; Bruges Crochet; Free-form crochet and Wire Crochet. Since Crocheting is a time consuming craft I will only be posting once a week. If you are like me and love to crochet but would really like to challenge yourself to go beyond what you are now doing, come along with me and move to the next level. Although the actual patterns will not be posted (copyright law) I will take you through each project and go through the process of each one. This is not a blog about free crochet patterns or selling crochet tools. What I would like to do is take you with me on the journey through this book as I learn and crochet each of 18 projects. I will attempt to crochet each project in the book, and in the process recording in detail my progress and the problems I encounter along the way and the process I went through to accomplish each project. I am hoping that you will not only learn from my experience but that it will inspire you to push yourself to the next phase in your crocheting skills. Until next time; keep those hooks flying.
