Crochet Me is totally my favourite project of my crochet work. It is one of the projects I’m proudest of. Collaborating with dozens of people from all over the world, we created something totally new and we made an impact. Not only that, but my experience with Crochet Me led me to develop skills I now use every day in my work, whether that work is crochet-related or not. I became thoroughly fluent with online communication, I became a better writer, I learned how to edit professionally, and I learned countless things about myself.
As for my past work, I’m proudest of having launched and run the online magazine-cum-social-network CrochetMe.com; I sold the site to Interweave Press in 2008.
Crochet Me: Designs to Fuel the Crochet Revolution, by Kim Werker
Inspired by the history and community of CrochetMe.com, a dozen up-and-coming designers contributed patterns that show crochet at its best. Essays, lengthy designer bios, and tutorials on advanced techniques round out the offerings from this book that CRAFT magazine said, “reinvigorates the craft to new fashion heights.”
Crochet Me was featured in CRAFT’s 2010 Holiday Gift Guide and in WhipUp’s Fave Books for 2010.
