When we were in New York for the MOTC book tour, I had the pleasure of spending time with crochet designer Dora Ohrenstein (look for a fab design of hers in Chain Reaction next fall). She’s just published our chat in Crochet Insider. Check it out for all sorts of stuff about Crochet Me, my terrible singing voice, the hotness of crochet right now, and why it’s important to write well.
Amy O’Neill Houck also wrote a great review of Get Hooked (scroll down), in which she describes it as, “the book my young crochet students have been looking for.” Awesome. (Full disclosure: Amy designed an awesome tie-front vest for Chain Reaction, but that’s no reason for her to like Get Hooked so much, right?)
I hang my head. I’m still catching up on blogging our tour stops. But it’s kinda like prolonging the excitement, so I’m not complaining. Are you complaining? No, I didn’t think so.
Next stop: Rosie’s Yarn Cellar in Philadelphia. But not yet. For now, check out the latest episode of Knitty D & The City, wherein Wendy interviews me and Shannon about crochet and spinning and knitting. (Our interview goes from about the 3-minute mark through minute 21.)
The interview is here (mp3 file).
Guido learned how to crochet in about 1.8 seconds. And he came to our event at Mind’s Eye Yarns the day after the interview to learn how to crochet in the round. Thanks for such a fun time, Guido!
