It’s National Crochet Month!

And Women’s History Month! Together! Girl Party! But more about that later. Yes. March is National Crochet Month here in America. How will you be sharing your love of Crochet?

To celebrate I will be doing 2 things: #1 Finishing the crochet PIP shown. It’s been kicking around for about 983,274 months. Or die trying. #2 Picking (or forcing) one lucky friend to learn to Crochet! Mwahaha. Anyone? Anyone? Buehler? Also, if you’re already an avid knitter and would like to try Crochet, Amigurumis are the perfect project. They’re small bite sized projects with all the necessary basics rolled up into one. A great way to see if it’s for you. I think you’ll find that you’ll pick it up in no time. Check out my library of Free Crochet Patterns for some ideas! Happy Crocheting!

The Crochet Guild of America has a nice page about it with some great ideas. Crochet Today also has some lovely ideas about what you can do to celebrate. My favorite ideas:

*Teach someone to Crochet. Bonus – You could pick up a new crafting buddy!

*What’s your favorite Crochet Book? Mine is this free ebook from Red Heart – Crochet Made Easy

*Or your favorite Crochet Website? Tell me!! Mine is The Crochet Liberation Front. “Fearless Leader” Laurie Wheeler is a true crochet advocate. Viva la Crochetvolution!

*Donate your hobbie love to charity! LionBrand.com has a charity page to help you find a charity. CrochetMe.com also has a lovely listing of reputable charities that will accept crochet items for charity. It also has a little listing of suitable crochet projects. Free! And so does We All Sew.

*Strike up a conversation with someone you see shopping for yarn. You can break the ice by asking if they know March is National Crochet Month!!

On a side side note. National Crochet Month also coincides with Women’s History Month. This year’s theme is “Our history is our strength”. Tenacity, Courage, and Creativity. Triple Threat! The Library of Congress has a lovely page up. To celebrate this auspicious month I plan to do something I’ve never done before. Secret! But don’t let my secrets stop you from celebrating your way! Might I suggest something like say: Ask a guy out! Instead of vice versa! See what happens. What’s the worst that can happen? I think that might be on my TODO list this month. Or treat yourself and mom to a spa day! Whatever you like. Celebrate being you. Ha. Go Gettem Grrrls!!
