Crochet is still in for this year's fashion, as mentioned in this article
- macrame and crochet will make a strong return; but forget the homemade craft feel - it's all about intricacy, quality and a luxury edge.
Hmm...what a big challenge to stay fashionable with crochet! Lets just leave those to the runway and make our own wearable crochet fashion ;)
There is also a trend to combine crochet with fabric...so I'm thinking this could be our chance to use our fabric stash, or to recycle some from outdated clothes; and to take out the sewing machine and improve on our sewing skills ;)
But first, please join me as I take a look back at my crochet adventures in 2010 :)
Here are the highlights:
Blogging is finally paying off for me, with Google Adsense. I got my first and succeeding payment this year!
My first design submission to Interweave Crochet magazine was accepted, and I sent off the design sample and requirements in January 2010. It got published in the Summer 2010 issue. It was such a thrill to say the least!
I had not submitted anything else though, and that's one of my goals for this succeeding year ;)
