For the love of Crochet!

National Crochet Month continues!

As I think about some inspiring crafters, Vickie Howell comes to mind first. I was lucky enough to win a copy of her latest book "AwareKnits: Knit and Crochet Projects for the Eco-Conscious Knitter" and have been an avid follower/stalker of Vickie's for a long time now. I never got to watch her tv show "Knitty Gritty" because we didn't get the DIY network, but I am glad to be a part of the Craft Corps where "craft is community * community is craft".
Vickie is an all-around crafter who, obviously, loves all sorts of crafts. You can attend workshops on various topics, including crochet, at Stitch Lab in Austin, TX as well as catch some fun kids crafts on "Craft Apparent" on the PBS Parents Blog.
"Knitty Gritty" fans will be happy to know that there's an archive of patterns from the show available at DIY here. There are lots of knit, crochet, and misc. projects and patterns available at VickieHowell.com. Be sure to check out "Pop Goes Crochet" for those true-to-crochet.
You can follow Vickie Howell on Twitter @VickieHowell and click the picture above to visit her blog!
