National Crochet Month 2017

Tuesday, February 28, 2017 0 No tags Permalink

It is National Crochet Month 2017. I’ve been working on crocheting simple washcloths to pair with specialty soap for the Women’s Co-Op auction coming up. My last full project was a lap blanket for a Christmas gift. I’ve been working on a lot of other stuff that has taken my attention from crocheting. This would seem to be a good time to make some plans.


In the past, I have had a number of projects on tap for National Crochet Month 2017 but I never seem to accomplish much. I’m still part way through the sweater I started a year ago and really should drag that back out. I had a fun project in mind for a gift, but just haven’t gotten around to working on it. This is the month! A few more washcloths. Finish the sweater. Fun vintage project.


I have picked up a collection of 29 cent vintage crochet pamphlets that have all kinds of ideas in them.¬†Wouldn’t you just love to sink your toes into this flowered bath mat?


Here’s the plan:

March 1 – 5: organize current yarn stash and catalog, finish remaining auction washcloths.

March 6 – 12: Work on sweater

March 13 – 19: Start and finish special vintage-inspired project

March 20 – 26: Work on sweater

March 27 – 31: Finish sweater, identify pattern for lightweight crochet shell or cardigan to work on next

Are you planning anything fun for National Crochet Month 2017?
