International Crochet Day
While reading a few crochet blogs online, I found out that tomorrow, Friday, September 12, 2008 is International Crochet Day! This also coincides with the Fall Knit and Crochet Show in Portland this weekend, sponsored by the TKGA and the CGOA.
Suggestions for activities this day: Crochet in public; teach someone how to crochet; crochet an item to donate to charity; check-out a crochet book from the library; comment on a crochet blog. Almost EVERYDAY is Crochet Day for me. I'm always trying to further this art by showing my friends how to manage those tricky stitches, crocheting in public and crocheting for charity. I am my happiest when I'm crocheting.
I remember seven years ago on that fateful and awful day, September 11, 2001. Immediately after the attacks, the internet was abuzz. Crocheters and Knitters around the world came together to make things to comfort the many people directly hurt by the attacks. It would be nice to take a minute or two today and think about how we can all help someone.
