Juicy Crochet News: Catch Me In Print!

I’ve been sitting on some juicy professional #crochet news for a few months now.  🙂

Julia_headshot_July_2013And I’m sorry I couldn’t share it with my peeps sooner – but you know how professional things can go.

However, the time has finally come that I can share it!

Are you ready?




I was asked to write a technical article about crochet hooks!  😀


It turned into two articles!  🙂 

The first’s about hook shapes and the second’s about hand holds!

Kinda cool huh! 😀

And it’s for Interweave Crochet!  Yep!
You can check out the preview for the issue here!

If you’ve known me awhile, then you know how passionate I am about crochet and especially crochet hooks.  To me, we don’t pay enough attention to our tools!  Even though our tools make up such a huge part of the equation when it comes to the outcome of our crochet designs!  wpid-2012-09-25_20-57-13_-2.0Ev-2.jpgNot to mention our crochet comfort, control and frustration levels.  So I was really excited at the opportunity to “preach the gospel,” so to speak!

This Interweave Crochet hook article combo is one of the largest freelance writing endeavors I’ve ever worked on.  And of course after pouring so much crochet heart into them, I can’t help but be excited that I get to share it with Interweave Crochet and their readers!

So please watch for the issues, check out the articles and feel free to ask questions and give feedback!  I’m confident these articles will be unlike anything you’ve ever read in a publication about hooks before.  And I’m so excited that the world of hooks, hands and their variations is getting more attention! 😀  I mean, just how many articles have you seen dedicated to crochet tools and the hands that hold them!

Yay! Hookey goodness! 😀

So… you gotta go check it out!  The first article on hook shapes will be in your next Fall 2013 Issue of Interweave Crochet.  The second article will show up in the Winter 2013 issue.  Some Interweave subscribers already have the first (I know because you emailed me  – thanks for letting me know!), so if you subscribe and  haven’t received your magazine yet – you will soon!  I haven’t received mine yet either, so I’m waiting too!  And if you like the efforts Interweave Crochet is making in advancing crochet knowledge, please let them know! 🙂

For those of you who buy your magazines off the stand, you’ll likely have to wait until September 16th.  The summer issue will be on display until then, at least in the U.S..

So there you go!  There’s the big news I’ve hung on to!  

But stay tuned, because that’s not the only bit of juicy news I have to share!  Next up, I have to tell you about my summer trip with my kids across the country, our visit with Laurie Wheeler from The Crochet Liberation Front and her family, a sweet yarn shop in Denver, and more!

Not to mention, we have a lot of catching up to do!  Catch you on the flip side!

  1. I had no idea that there is enough information about crochet hooks to warrant an entire article–well, I do now! Congratulations on your articles!

    BTW: The electronic issue is already out. The print issue I think takes a few days longer.
    If you are in Colorado again, I highly recommend the Longmont Yarn Shoppe (in Longmont), as well as Neota Designs and The Stichin Den, both in Estes Park. (No relation except as a happy customer).

    • Awesome! Thanks for the intel, I will have to check them out. My crochet bud Andee Graves lives in CO, but I didn’t get to catch up with her this time. And I’ve an adopted aunt in Denver, not to mention some old college buds too. I imagine I’ll be back through sooner than later!

  3. I am so happy for you Julia. What a big gigantic thing to have happen in a lifetime. Just turned my Mom towards your blog yesterday! Can’t wait to read you at Interweave and share your accomplishments vicariously. Hope this leads to even more juicy news from you. All the best to you.

    Congrats! I’ve only recently started exploring the world outside standard, hand-me-down metal hooks, so I’m excited to read your articles. Thanks!

  7. Congrats Julia! That’s fantastic!

    Yay, Julia! Way to go! When I saw the article, I just knew it had to be yours before I even looked at the author.

    Congrats! Sorry I’ve been out of the loop most of the summer – that’s what lack of internet does to you. Congrats once again.
