Enamel Pins You’ll Get Stuck On
We crocheters are proud of our crafting skills. It doesn’t matter what yarn, type of hook, or pattern we use: when we finish a project, we’ll proudly take pictures and tell everyone we know “I made this!”
But what happens if you don’t have a project with you? Is there still a way for you to give props to your chosen craft? YES!
The crochet team at Interweave has designed an enamel pin proudly stating “Crochet Yay!” that will let you show off the fact that you crochet! Each pin is about 1″ across, making it the perfect size to pin to your craft or notions bag.
As natural as the sentiment may seem, coming up with “Crochet Yay!” wasn’t as easy as you might assume. Working at a crochet magazine may lead some people to assume that we spend a lot of time crocheting, and although we do crochet, we don’t get to do it as much as we would like. To fix this problem, we’ve designated a certain part of each week as “Crochet Yay!”
During this time, we try to turn away from our computers and focus on what’s on our hooks. It’s such a great time of stitching and camaraderie. So when we met to decide what to put on the crochet pin, the first saying on the list was “Crochet Yay!” because it reminds us to take a crochet break, and it’s often what comes to mind when we think of what we’re able to create.
What do you think of the “Crochet Yay!” concept? Do you dedicate part of each day to crocheting? Also, what would you like to see on a crochet-themed pin? We want to create a series, and we love to hear your input.
