• How This Works

      Short Version

        1) Every Sunday a new crochet Prompt or Challenge will be posted. In addition, a Mission will be posted on the first day of each month, and possibly within any given month.
        2) Copy the Prompt/Challenge/Mission to your own blog with your response then come back here and leave your link in the comments of the appropriate topic so everyone will know where to find it.
        3) If you don't have a blog, why not start one? Or you can just post your response here.
        4) You don't have to participate in every post. Do the ones you want. Backtrack if you wish. 5) If you have any comments about this site and/or suggestions for a prompt/challenge, click on the "Share Your Ideas" tab and use the form to send it.

        For the long-winded version, click the About button.

Prompt: Tools of the Trade

Hooks, yarn needles, and stitch markers are all common tools of the trade, but are there any other things you use with your crochet that might not be so common?

Prompt: Resources

It’s a question many of us have been faced with often, while others haven’t:

If someone new to crochet who had never really picked up a hook or someone who wanted to advance their skills were to ask you for some good materials for learning, what’s the best resource(s) you’ve found on the subject of crochet, on-line or otherwise that you would suggest?

Prompt: Thankfulness

Here in the states, we’re about to celebrate Thanksgiving day, so it would be fitting to talk about things we’re thankful for. Even if you don’t live in the states, you still have things to be thankful for, right? Sure you do.

What are ten things you are most grateful for? They can all be crochet-related, but we all know there’s more to life than hook & yarn. Hmm, or is there? 🙂

Happy Thanksgiving to those in the states!

Prompt: Least Favorite

Last week it was the fave; this week it’s the least favorite. Which of your hooks is the one you dislike using the most–the one you gladly size up or down for just to avoid using it–the one you’d change brands over–the one that just doesn’t get much attention (but still gets much love because hey! it’s still a crochet hook!)?

Prompt: Favorite Hook

It seems that most crocheters feel the same about hooks as they do yarn: You can never have too much of a good thing. Do you own a multitude or just a few? Which out of the hooks you own is your absolute favorite–that one hook you couldn’t live without? What makes that hook so special?

Prompt: Yarrrrrrrrn!

While crafting with a few friends the other day, this question came up: When you purchase yarn, do you have a project in mind, or do you buy on impluse and save the yarn to use whenever the need arises? All four of us revealed that we’re hoarders. Some more than others, but each of us have a pretty good stash of yarn growing all around us.

What about you? Are you a yarn hoarder, who buys on impluse just because the yarn was too lushious to put down? Or are you a practical yarnie who only buys what is needed for specific projects? Is there yarn bagged, boxed, stored, shelved all over your house? Or is it neatly piled away in as few storage containers as possible? Are you addicted, or can you quit at anytime? Inquiring crochet minds want to know!
