International Crochet Day

Today is International Crochet Day - as first declared last year by our beloved crochet hook artiste Jimbo.

http://jimbosfrontporch.blogspot.com/2007/08/contest-im-giving-this-hook-away.html
...I have thought for a long time now that the art of crochet and those who practice the art deserve some significant recognition. And so in my great power as the Ruthless Tyrant of my vast hook empire have decided to declare that Sept 12, 2007 will be a Holiday that I'm cleverly calling "International Crochet Day". I'm giving everyone who works for me (ME) a day off. You just go ahead and take the day off too.... tell'em Jimbo said it's ok (see where that gets you!)

In honour of this great day I am sharing this:


I was so thrilled when Patti Sandlin sent me this picture of the blanket she made using my Peace Granny Square pattern. What a feeling of pride, LOL! And hasn't she done a wonderful job? I just love all the colours.

I'm so pleased Patti liked the pattern enough to put all that effort in and then take the time to contact me. I love crochet and I love crocheters. And today is our day! Happy Hooking!

    That is a really clever granny square! The blanket she created from it is gorgeous. :-)

    Thank you, hobbyzu!
    Patti did a splendid job and I really like the yarn she used - so shiny.

    BTW, I love your slippers (especially the lime green ones, naturally) and your striped blanket. Oooo, colours - lots of colours!!

    I am a beginner, just started learning this past month and have already finished one baby afghan in 3 colors and halfway done w/ a granny square one in camo for my new niece of nephew. I found this one while looking for a peace sign pattern for a little girl I babysit and fell in love with it. There is absolutely no way as a beginner I'm ready to tackle this challenge but was wondering if anyone else out there would be willing to make one to sell? She is a 9 yr old little girl who is in love with the bright funky colors and peace signs. She would love this!

    I am ready to begin this afghan (1 sq at a time!!)... But before I start, are the stitches in US or UK terms? Please let me know as soon as you can... Thank you so much!!! ~Tess

    Tess, the stitches are US (it says "American notation" in small print under the title ;-)). Go for it!

    I learned to read crochet patterns when I lived in Seattle so although I am English I "speak" US crochet, LOL!

    I have just recently found this pattern and am in the process of creating a scarf that matches a hat for my little girl. I will send you a picture when it is completed. Might take a little while but I love this design and thank you so much for sharing it.

    Tamara, you're very welcome. I'd love to see a picture!
