A couple of days ago I was awarded the Best Crochet Jewelry by Kathryn Vercillo and you can read the whole post on her blog here.
I follow her 2014 Awesome Crochet Blog Awards, but I didn't even dream I would be one of the awardees.
What Kathryn says about the awards: The 2014 Awesome Crochet Blog Awards are a set of awards that I created to honor and celebrate the best crocheters in the online community. Each year I create 30-ish categories and name the best folks in those categories. It’s informal and the awardees don’t receive anything tangible but it’s one way to recognize the awesomeness that’s happening out there all year long. Of course, I try to do this weekly with my Link Love posts but the annual awards are on a slightly bigger scale where one person per day can get recognized for their own unique contributions.
The reasons Kathryn pointed out for awarding me this award:
What I can say to Kathryn is a huge THANK YOU for your ardency in promoting crochet designers and unselfishly and perpetually investing your time in acclaiming our work and endeavors.
Kathryn is a San Francisco based freelance writer, blogger and crocheter who learned to crochet from her mom when she was a child. She re-discovered crochet in her twenties, when she was going through a really difficult bout of depression. According to her words, crochet helped her heal and connected her to a great community and became a key part of her life.
She says: "I started this blog to celebrate crochet and to do my part to help connect and honor all of the designers, crafters, writers and makers who are linked to crochet in some way."
She is the author of the book "Crochet Saved My Life". Find more about it here.
