International Crochet Day: Sept 12

The Great Jimbo of Jimbo’s Frontporch has created a MONSTER hook, in fact it could be a world’s record breaking hook and we’ll find out about that in Portland, Oregon at Twisted! Halloween Weekend…

But above all else Jimbo is famous for not just making beautiful hooks of art, he decreed and declared (three years ago) that there be an International Crochet Day every September 12th!

We are still lobbing Hallmark to make fantanstic cards and useless gifts to go along with the occassion but they have not met our demands…phooey!

Anyway, the Crochet Liberation Front utterly and completely adores this International Day and ask all of you who love the hook, who love the yarn, who love crochet to blog, crochet in public (CIP), to wear your glorious hand crafted fashions, to drape your family, and pets, and yet even the Hermit Crab in crocheted goodness! (Ok, maybe draping the hermit crab is going a bit far…)

What are your plans for this illustrious day?

  1. I plan to crochet – what else?! Perhaps I’ll also travel to my three LYS’s and show them items I’ve made from the yarn I’ve bought from them in the past year.

    I am attending a Knitting Guild Fibre Fair – Hook held high in hand – to recruit people of any craft to make squares for blankets to be given to any Canadian in need of warmth.

    I can’t think of a better way to share my art than to use it to help others.

    Voulez vous CROCHET avec moi?

  3. soy de Cañete-Lima-Perú. buscando una página de concurso de bordados para mi sobrina, gracias a Dios encontré la suya y me agradaría saber los requisitos que se necesita para participar en el concurso del crochet o ganchillo porque me agradaría inscribir a mi mamá, ya que ella nos crió a los 4 hermamos sólo con el tejido, ella tiene 72 años y es adicta al tejido. me gustaría enviarle fotos de lo que ella hace, chompas, vestidos, cortinas, manteles de mesa, vestido de marinera, para la iglesia y vestimenta del cura o padrecito, etc. etc.
