We bid (Inter) National Crochet Month Au Revoir…

But, not adieu!  March has come and gone oh so quickly! (Inter)Natcromo has been a wild and wooly time on the CLF message board, on Ravelry for the Crochet Party, and the tweets have been fabulous! (You can follow the CLF on Twitter, CrochetLibFront )

I know many of us were inspired to crochet more, or expand our crochet skills. I found myself crocheting at break neck speed, I’ve done three blankets, some unique squares for the local LYS, and a baby hat, currently I am having an adventure with plarn. Yes, plarn. I’m making easter baskets out of the billions of shopping bags I have at home, that I am so sick of stuffing into drawers, even when I remember to reuse them as shopping bags they multiply. I’ve invented a fun little design to make my very eco-conscious teens some pretty cool baskets out of this plarn, and that is my contribution to Natcromo.

I’ll feature the free form stylings that the partiers on Ravelry.com have been hard at hooking through out the month of March. If you missed out on the party, never fear they have the instructions for the Free Form Game up for posterity, give it a try!! It’s so much fun.

The Flamies went exceedingly well, with 30% more voting than last year! Amazing, thousands of votes!! Thank you for participating, and thanks to the nominees for their gracious participation! I look forward to announcing the winners on Getting Loopy on April 19th, 2010!

What did you do for Natcromo? Did you learn a new crochet skill? Did you crank out the gifts? Are you ready for Christmas already? Never mind, don’t answer that, I don’t know that I’m quite ready to hear from folks that organized!
