Party Time!

Welcome back to k-town!

I’m so happy that you all keep visiting my little blog and leaving your nice comments, so I thought we all could have a big party together, shall we? There are so many amazing link-parties out there, like i-crochet, the crochet way, annemarie's breiblog or our creative spaces, just to mention a few. (You’ll find more party links on my right side bar).

What I was thinking: Wouldn’t it be interesting to celebrate a big theme party? Let’s say, we settle on the topic granny squares, which is quite popular. You could either link to a single granny square you’ve made/designed or to a project involving granny squares, like blankets, cushions, bags or whatever you’ve made from the squares.

What about flowers? I’m sure we all have made lovely crochet flowers, and maybe even a bigger project? A garland, a scarf or even a blanket of crochet flowers? Maybe a granny square with a flower in the middle? 

Not every crochet blanket is made of granny squares, there are also lots of wonderful striped or rippled blankets out there, you could link to them if we settle on the topic blankets.

Baby crochet: Everything, that makes a little baby happy: Clothes, shoes, hats, blankets or toys (this is the chance to post your favorite amigurumi!)

And why not just pick a color? Pretty in Pink might be a topic, where everyone can add her creation!

(Everyone but me, it seems... *lol*)

It would be wonderful, if you’d all join this party and search in the depths of your blog archives for a post that matches the given topic. I’m following so many blogs (and they’re getting more and more) and it’s such a pity, that I don’t have the time to read every blog from the beginning. I bet you’ve all got so many treasures you’ve made many months or even years ago and I’d really like to see them!!

My suggestions for topics so far are the ones mentioned above: granny squares, flowers, blankets, baby crochet and Pretty in Pink. If you’ve got ideas, please post them! It should be quite specific, but on the other hand general enough so that everyone can take part.

In a week or so, I’ll start a poll where you can vote for one of the topics we’ve collected until then. And when we’ve settled on a theme, it’s party-time! :)

What do you say? Can I count on you? If you like my idea, please spread the word on your blog! And if you like the idea even more, we could repeat it now and then :)

I wish you all a wonderful week-end, please come back to make your suggestions!


  1. It does sound like a good idea. Would be fun.

  2. I'm in - sounds like a great idea. :)

  3. Forgot to mention - how about a purse/bag party? :)

  4. I thought about bags just after I've submitted the post :) It's definitely on the list! What about potholders? I haven't made one myself since I was a kid, but I've seen lovely creations out there! Might be too specific, though... what do you think?

  5. I like the potholder idea - or maybe just a kitchen party. Either way is good. :)

  6. I love the idea! I am in!
    And what about: Covered! ( Stones!, a Jar, soap anything!)


  7. Hello Barbara! I love your idea! What about clothing like scarves, socks, slippers.. or colourful as a theme?
    All the best for you! Barbina

  8. Wow, thank you girls for your positive reactions and your suggestions!

    Barbina - clothing, of course! How could I forget about that? And I just love the colorful theme!!

    San, "covered" sounds also good, this covers (*lol*) lots of different projects!

    I think I'll start the poll a littler sooner, because we've got so many good ideas already, maybe on sunday. :)

    If anyone else has got more suggestions, please keep posting them!

  9. Sounds like a lot of great ideas! I only wish I could crochet!

  10. Me parece muy divertida la idea¡¡¡¡¡¡ Hacer chucherías para navidad, cubiertas para botes de cristal.....

  11. This sounds fun. I love granny squares and they are so quintessentially crochet! But I'm open to other ideas too!

  12. Great idea! I read your blog whenever I actually have time to get on the computer and check more than just email, but don't always get a chance to comment. I love your crocheted rocks, what a neat idea!

    How about a category of Animals? Crocheted animals (like toys), items with animals in them (like blankets with a design), or crocheted items FOR animals!

  13. It is difficult to make a choice. I did, because you say that you can choose for more than one..... Sigh, I am so silly...sometimes.
