From The Desk of The Crowd’s Intern

Hey! It’s me, Mikey’s trendy new intern! I’ve been working for the crowd for a few days now and I’ve learned a lot. I will be posting on this blog Whenever Mike stops working me to the bone Every week or so.

So far, working for The Crochet Crowd I’ve had to: sink a boat on dry land, perform feats of daring tech support, battle a cat for desk space, change the colour of a ball of yarn, and  fix some behind the scenes things that have had Mike stumped for a while now.

Boat, crochet netting


Riverstone and Dimitri are adorable!  Even when they jump up all on my keyboard and mess up the projects I’ve been working on for hours. 
Mais, c’est la vie. 

Mike is super into Diva Dan, like seriously when he’s not making tutorials for all you lovely people all he’s talking about is Dan, it’s adorable.

Speaking of you lovely people the community here is great and I am really glad to be a part of it!

Did you know Mikey gets a mountain of emails everyday, just from members of The Crowd? I sure didn’t! Another fun fact! Crochet is known as virkning in Swedish.

Well, that’s all for now! Happy Hooking!

    HI IAN!! Welcome to the Funny Farm Ian!! Keep up the Great work!!! If you are looking for suggestions on which video tutorial to do I vote for the Tree of Life Afghan… I am a beginner of sorts and WANTS so desperately to make this in honor of my mom (RIP) and present this to my daughter on her wedding day in memory of her grandmother Anna Delia.. So my daughter will always remember that when I am gone , our roots run deep and that she is NEVER ALONE!! tytytytyty

    Enjoyed your post as I knew I would. Welcome aboard Ian. I am sure that you are working for two wonderful bosses! I hope you have as much fun as we do listening to the outtakes that Mikey does. He’s can be a real stinker methinks…
    Are you Swedish? My best friend is leaving for Sweden for the first time on Tues. She is of Sami decent…
    Happy blogging Ian! I blog at

  12. Sandy says:

    Glad you like Riverstone and Dimitri, they probably had to approve of you before you got the job. With them around, you will be learning how to join chewed yarn back together! At least they cannot chew computer wires in tow! Enjoyed your article.

  13. Rae Jones says:

    I have a question, not sure if maybe I missed it before….I know you are tech savvy, are you hook savvy to? If so, mind showing us all some of your work, if not, I’m sure someone can show you! 🙂
