New tutorial posts on their way

I decided to start doing some tutorial blogs on crochet (maybe knitting too, but I don't want to teach people my way if I'm not doing it exactly right) and some other things.  To kick things off there's going to be a free crochet pattern on tomorrow's post that is being provided by Tutus & Tea Parties.  The first tutorial is going to be on how to do single crochet (which will go nicely with the pattern, hint, hint) and is also going to be a guest post by Insprink Studio.  What I'd like to know is there a specific crochet technique that you'd like to see demonstrated? 


  1. I've always wanted to learn to crochet but haven't been able to learn from books. If you could show how to crochet for beginners like me I would love it!

  2. That's what I was thinking. Tutus and Tea Parties is giving everybody that reads my blog her pattern for a Mug Cozy (and she took pictures!) which is going to be posted tomorrow.

  3. I've crocheted since I was a kid (I'm in my 50's now) and have always held the hook in a kind of death grip. At our quilt guild this gal from Holland litterally grabbed the hook out of my hand and told I was DOING IT WRONG. So, what is the 'proper way' to hold the hook?

  4. I was taught to hold it like a pencil. Some people hold it like a knife. As far as I'm concerned, I think you should hold it so that it's comfortable to you. There's not really a right way or a wrong way, just do what works for you. People need to relax, it's only crochet, it's surgery.

  5. You could certainly see your expertise within the work you write.
    The world hopes for more passionate writers such as you who aren't afraid to say how they believe. Always follow your heart.

    you for publishing this.
