International Crochet Day

International Crochet Day is Sept. 12th.

I try to get the word out every year, but it seems to fall on deaf ears.

The local people I mention it to either didn't know, don't care, or ask if they're is something that they can get 'free & good' stuff!!

They tend to look at me as if to say "What's the big deal?"

Some suggestions for participating in International Crochet Day can include: crocheting in public to show awareness, wearing something you have crocheted to show pride in your crocheting, and/or teaching someone else to crochet to help pass it along.

With the Fall season upon us, why not try to do more positive things than sitting in front of the TV or video.

If so, then do/make something while you're doing it.

We're all crying about the economy, and how we have to nickel & dime everything to death, well, try making your holiday gifts this year.....occupy your kid's time learning how to make something (OK, maybe something else for the 'guys', but something!)

At least, try to learn something new or different from what you already know.

I'm sure all of us need some improvement, right? (hint, hint!!) ;-)

I liked this entry. I very much enjoy crocheting, out in parks...or while waiting in tha car, for shopping family members.
And, I must say, your suggestions are very good.

any suggestions on beginner projects for young boys, around the ages of pre-teen and early teen?

The only thing that comes to mind are skull caps/beanies.

There's a video on Youtube of a young kid crocheting a hat.

Well.. the only crochet time I ever have is in front of the t.v. set... And honestly, I'd hardly watch ANY t.v., if it wasn't for the fact that I crochet! I had a great time, crocheting, while I watched Monday night football with Dear Son last night!.. As for classes, I never took any for crochet, but I DID teach a one-night crochet class at the church! I was flattered really, and very happy to! I've taught my daughter, but so far my son does not yet seem interested.. Have a good evening! ~tina
