Below is my list of Crochet-tivities so far:
- Go to Berroco's poll and be counted! [did it]
- Crochet in public (CRIP) more than usual [could have in the bookstore yesterday and didn't]
- Walk into a yarn shop with a big smile and say, "Happy National Crochet Month to you!"
- Pay a designer for a crochet pattern instead of downloading a freebie
- Write to a magazine, yarn company, etc. to tell them how much you appreciate their crochet offerings
- Buy lots of yarn [Dee lists special celebration sales]
- Try a new-to-me stitch pattern [every day would be cool]
- Learn a new crochet technique
- Finish a WIP (work-in-progress) or possibly even a PIG (a stalled project-in-grocery-bag)
- Try crocheting with a new-to-me fiber [I have yet to try qiviut for example.]
- Listen to a new crochet podcast
- Crochet something for your child or child's teacher to be used in the classroom so that everybody sees some crochet at school [3/23 update: Done! Photo at my other blog]
- Join a crochet-along (CAL); besides my own '70's Crochet Read-Along, I know of a new Ripple-Along and an even newer Granny-Along
- Plan ahead for Nat'l Crochet Month 2008 so it doesn't catch me unprepared!
In an attempt to get up to speed, I'm kicking off the festivities with a maple latte and here is a portrait titled Latte with Trip Around the World Crochet Dishcloth (see #7 above).
