In it, I talk about the unique nature of crochet as a craft and put a different spin on making romantic gifts for our “valentines.” Here’s a little excerpt:
Giving the gift of handmade offers more than picking out an item and spending money. You are giving of your skill, your time and effort, and your loving care for the receiver. That’s pretty romantic, if you ask me!
On Valentine’s Day we tend to focus on sweethearts, spouses, or romantic crushes, but take a moment to think of the other valentines in your life. The ones whose love is supportive, steadfast, and always with us. I’m thinking of our moms, sisters, daughters, and BFF’s. Those who understand, who help, and who encourage us through life’s turbulence. This year, consider making a romantic–in the crocheted sense–gift for one of these wonderful women in your life.
I also got a chance to talk about Poetic Crochet and some of the thoughts that went into developing the concept of the book and working toward my vision of presenting crochet in all its romance and loveliness. Don’t miss it!
