What special crochet project do you have in your life?
I bet every single one of us has a special project that comes to mind when we hear the phrase “crochet heirloom”, whether it be something we made or something we received. For me, the act of giving a crochet project is very special to me. It’s how you say “thank you”, “I love you”, “your very special to me” and everything in between. It’s a powerful way to express yourself and your feelings toward the recipient.
I had the pleasure of meeting Amy from Yarn Valet at Stitches South a few years ago and we’ve stayed connected ever since. She’s one of the nicest and genuine people I know! I asked Amy to be a guest on the show and when asked, she jumped at the opportunity to talk about crochet heirlooms – how to choose a project, how to choose the yarn and how to care for your precious items. She even shares a few stories with us about some heirlooms that are in her family!
- About Amy and her journey from experienced knitter to new crocheter.
- The heirloom projects that have been passed down in Amy’s family.
- What a “crochet heirloom” actually is.
- Who will benefit from receiving an heirloom.
- Tips to choosing a project that will last generations.
- How to pick the right yarn for a project that will stand the test of time.
- Fiber types to stick to or avoid.
- How to care for the heirloom projects in your life.
