Vote for the best of crochet

Saturday, 19 March 2011

I haven’t been doing all that much for NatCroMo/ItCroMo this year, but I will at least be voting in the Flamies, the Crochet Liberation Front‘s annual awards, and I’d recommend you do too. If you don’t know enough about the candidates to vote there’s a Voter’s Guide with links to the nominees’ websites for more information. People are encouraged to only vote in categories where they have a real opinion. Have fun with it. The awards will be announced on Monday April 18, 2011 from 7:00 PM to 11:00 PM CDT on the Getting Loopy Podcast and live at a special Red Carpet Event in Georgetown, Texas. Have fun!

The Crochet Liberation Front are inviting you to vote for your favourite crochet designers, books, podcasts and more of 2008. There’s a blog post with all the contenders, and then the survey itself. I’ve voted, but I amn’t going to tell you how you should, just that I suggest you do, if you’ve enjoyed crochet at all over the past year.

Even if somehow your only exposure to crochet was through this blog, well I’ve referred to the Getting Loopy podcast a couple of times (mostly when I won stuff, admittedly), and that’s a contender. And of course my Freeform Game from last year’s (Inter)National Crochet Month is in the CLF First Ever Book, and that’s in the running too, so you do know about some of the competitors. Ravelry members can see far more.

So go vote!

PS Yes, I will be doing a second edition of the Freeform Game this March. Coming soon!

National Crochet Month

Sunday, 2 March 2008

Or for me, that should be International, I think! Anyway, it comes from the Crochet Guild of America (CGOA) and over on Ravelry the CLF has spawned an offshoot NatCroMo group for the month of March 2008. I’ve taken on giving out instructions for a daily game/CAL, and I’ll be putting them on a page here on my blog (which is where the Ravelry pattern page should lead to) as well as on the Ravelry thread, so please do join in, whether you have got your invite for Ravelry yet or not. (And if you haven’t signed up for Rav yet as a current or beginning crocheter or knitter, whyever not?)
