I love to feature fellow crocheters here on The Crochet Crowd Facebook. In fact, it’s one of the best things Cathy and I love to do in general as people, just like you and I, are deserving of having extra praise. In a typical day, we choose between 4 – 12 photos to be featured.
I’ve seen comments where people are scared to post their items as some of our featured photos are really elabourate. Some crocheters self doubt their own abilities or feel their work isn’t good enough to even post a photograph.
Inspiration comes in all forms. Photos say many things but also the words attached to it are just as inspirational. Sometimes, Cathy and I choose the inspirational photo based on the words or meaning applied to the photo. Sometimes, it’s just an idea. Other times, we just love the colourways of how the yarn worked out. You cannot predict what we will feature as we don’t know ourselves what we will feature until we review what others have posted.
Here at The Crochet Crowd, we are globally diverse. We are also very diverse in skill level, time allowance and yarn availability. Fact is, each of us have something to offer in the form of inspiration. Though we only feature so many photos in one day, take some time to visit our RECENT POSTS BY OTHERS on Facebook. You will see the most amazing creations. You will see people learning crochet for the very first time and see people pushing their own skills to learn something new.
Take a moment and CLICK LIKE or even make a quick comment. I bet you feel great when people comment on your photos. By commenting on other photos, you are encouraging conversation and exchange.
We cannot expect everyone to echo back all the effort we put forth; however… for me, my joy is expressed through giving without expecting much in return. For The Crochet Crowd, I know when I make an effort and that feels good for my soul to acknowledge another crocheter’s creativity. I can sleep easy knowing that is how to make a difference in this world.
Time is really strained for Cathy, Daniel and I. We would love to comment to everything and feature everything that happens on our page but we cannot continue to create our programs, videos and write content as maintaining this page is a full time job. We love it when community members, just like you, also step forward and realize you have the power to make someone’s day equally bright.
Thank you for being part of The Crochet Crowd! May your hook be good to you today!
