Kicking off National Crochet Month!

Blocking the flowered portion of the Fiesta Blouse from Crochet Today! May/June 2012.  Shown here just for crochet eye candy.

Happy National Crochet Month!  What will you do to promote the art of crochet this month?  Please share in the comments or on my Facebook page.  I am participating in a Crochet Blog Tour organized by Owner of Crochetville and CGOA President Amy Shelton.  I'll also be teaching a beginning crochet class this month and in general, doing lots of crocheting and designing.

As part of the crochet tour we are supporting the charity organization Project Night Night.  You can donate $$, or new purchased or handmade blankets 50" x 60" or smaller, children's books, and new purchased or handmade stuffed animals 18" or smaller.  See their website for details on what they need and how to help.  I think it would be awesome to have lots of crocheters make blankets or amigurumi  to donate this month.

The blog tour will make a stop at the blog of one or two Professional, or Associate Professional,  Crocheters every day this month.  Here is the schedule:

March 1 Jenny King and Shelby Allaho
