Short & sweet

I promised a quarterly update - it's time - and so here I am with my three of my most popular blog items to date, which you may or may not already be familiar with. And then I go off on a bit of tangent in my usual fashion... 




1. My call to arms (or hooks)!

Read: The Craftivism Manifesto 

And related to this - A book review of How To Be A Craftivist - essential reading, put it on your summer reading list.



2. My sock crojo is BACK!

Read: Crochet Sock Resources  from a Crochet Sock Along run by fabulous Fay & fantastic Claudia.

And at long last I'm teaching again - a class on Crochet Socks at a wonderful local yarn store Alterknit Universe in October. Do get in touch if you want a place! Kim, the sweet owner, led me down the fluffy rabbit hole of spinning with a drop spindle this month for the #tourdefleece. More details on what's that's all about here.



3. Can't get Crochet Garments out of my head!

Read: Crochet Sweater Resources from the Back to School Sweater CAL run by myself & lovely Helen 

And if you love crochet garments too, join the My Crochet Wardrobe Facebook group run by super Dora Explored. I can also highly recommend Tech Editor / Math(s) Teacher guru Lindsey Stephens' very useful Body Basics book (a primer on body measurements critical to garment design) if you're thinking of designing or like me, starting to tech edit crochet sweaters. 



And a shout out ...

Two friends Lisa and Sophie have set up a new Ravelry group The Craft BankIt's "a place for people who want to pay it forward and donate the cost of crochet patterns, knit patterns, destash yarn or provide yarn support." Such a great idea! Go check it out!



I'll be back with another little update of some sort later in the year. In the meantime, please do find me on all the social media InstagramTwitter and Facebook and also on Ravelry as Crafty Escapism. Hope you're having a wonderful summer all! And hook on!
