A  new graphic, because a few things changed, and I wanted to do it up a little neater…Portland Oregon, Halloween, Crochet, Hand Spinning, Fiber Arts, Party


I’ll be wearing me piratey outfit on Halloween day! How else could I celebrate fuzzy fiber love?!  Though I may wear trousers and a floofy shirt instead of the dress… 🙂 10lbs of chenille in October is pretty comfy 😉

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?
