Thanks so much for contributing all of your questions/challenges to create this event, and thank you to everyone who participated! :D I hope you had fun completing the challenges, and more important, I hope you got the chance to meet other crochet lovers and learn more about them.
Like I’ve said before, I started this Tumblr because I really wanted to create a place where we could all meet each other, support each other, and generally share our love for this craft. I pitched the idea of the 15-Day Challenge as a way for bloggers to start interacting within our community, and I hope that goal has been achieved. :)
If you have a moment, I’d love to hear your feedback (good or bad) regarding any of the following questions:
1. What did you think of the 15-Day experience? Did anyone complete the whole 15 days consecutively? :P (I totally failed)
2. How could it be improved if we do this again in the future?
3. Did you look at each post’s notes before/after to see how other crocheters completed the challenge?
4. Did you check out others’ blogs and meet new crocheters because of this event?
5. How could we encourage more interaction between community members in the future? (One way: I’ll be featuring crocheters who posted photos on Day 1 of our challenge as a way to link names with faces, so I hope you’ll say hi to those who are featured! :P)
Feel free to answer below this post or in my ask box.
Thanks again for being a part of the 15-Day Challenge and for being a part of this blog! <3
Hi I’m introducing myself :3 I just started crocheting granny squares for an afghan and am a horrible beginner… my squares, no matter how carefully I make them, always come out lumpy and a little uneven, nothing like the neat and tidy ones I see online. Is it the cheap yarn I’m using? A need for more practice? Not enough tension on the yarn? I have no idea, and I don’t live near anyone who could help me in person. Ayudame?
That first pic is three of the different colors I’ve used for the squares.
this second pic is one of my most recent squares, using the “pumpkin” color of the red heart brand, purchased from that most high-class and exclusive of establishments, Rite-Aid. The crochet hook is plastic and is a size H.
featuring the whole shebang, including the bag I made out of a grain sack, diet pepsi, car keys, the remains of dinner, three of my thirty-odd squares, and a skein of gray yarn.
I’m following a “pattern” explained by the very nice and patient lady in this series of videos. One day when I grow up I’d like to be able to look at the abbreviations in traditional crochet patterns and not weep in terror.
Submitted by kirstyandstuff: Okay so, I’m hoping some of you guys can help me xD I’m making baby booties; the pattern has a straight seam going up the side where the rounds are joined. My seam veers off though, and I keep finding that although I’ve finished the round in terms of how many stitches there -should- be, I still have stitches left to crochet into before I reach the start of the round. (So I’ve added stitches somehow, but the round before was fine, and I havent inc’d or anything…) Help? What am I doing wrong? D:

agirlnamedbob: I just found this awesome website called knitmeter. It’s a fun little widget that you can use for tracking how much you’ve knit, spun, or crocheted. It’s pretty fun to see just how far you’ve gone, you know? My widget, updated today:
I just found this blog and wanted to say hi and introduce myself. I have a crochet tumblr myself, and I try to keep it updated by using my queue, but sometimes im just too busy with college and work. Though, I'm usually crocheting while I'm working anyway! ;) right now, I'm working on a huge queen-size granny square/afghan stitch blanket. I also make some small things on the side like baby blankets and sell them. Drop a message in my ask box If you want to be friends on Ravelry :)
Hi college-crochet! :P Thanks for joining us, and make sure to submit photos of your crochet projects whenever you can! :D
Hi! I thought I would send in an introductory hello as well! My name is Annelie (Ani) and I'm a film student in New York. I've been crocheting since I was 9 and don't really remember learning so much as remembering how really really obsessed I got with it. I just started my own craft tumblr, aniscraftservices, though everything finds its way to my personal, onalea. I'm really excited this community is starting up! And if anyone ever wants to talk crafts + movies, I'm game!
Hi Annelie! Thanks for introducing yourself. :D I’m excited that this community is starting up as well! We currently have 317 members, and our 15-Day Community Challenge is off to a great start! ^____^
I’m creating a link for your crafts Tumblr HERE, just in case anyone would like to visit and chat! Can’t wait to see you on we-love-crocheting more often. I received your WLC challenge, and that will be added onto our weekly challenge list! :)
