Skill + 1UP – 2KCBWDAY2

it's the second day of the Second Annual Knitting and Crochet Blogging Week!!!

today i'm looking back and think what i've accomplished in the last year concerning knitting or crocheting!

So, Panagiota here, i've been a crochet+knitting lover for the last 7 years,
but it's true that the last year has been a real chalenge for me and my skills,
not so much concerning the technique but as how to make others love crochet+knitting!
crocheting at gingerale, exarhia

since september marietta and i created a crochet club,
 with which we really wanted to spread the word about crocheting knitting.!
we started with dearest friends and since we didn't have a particular place to meet we've been crocheting in the most unusual places in athens (caffeterias, university, libraries, bus, metro....etc)
(you have to bear in mind that crocheting in public is not a common thing in athens)

In order to teach my friends and all the unknown people that just asked while watching the crochet happiness, i've become a better crochetter myself!

I'm proud to say that in this last year i've taught a lot more people
how to crochet than i have in the last 7 ones!
of course when you are a teacher you have to become better every day!

so----> this is my skill, this is what i'm proud of!
my crochet and knitting teaching techniques!! :)

p.s we really loved all the posts of our fellow bloggers arround the globe for the first and second day of the Second Annual Knitting and Crochet Blogging Week!!
see you again tomorrow !



  1. I think that's an awesome crochet accomplishment! I really want to be part of a yarnbombing crew but I don't want to create it myself so I'm kind of keeping my eye out for that around here. I do have people to just crochet with, though, which is terrific.

  2. Thank you so much. Is at least relaxing to crocheting, chatting and laughing with some favorite people and some favorite yarn!!! ♥ Yarnbombing is fun! but more challenging, we tried this, too, but failed, maybe we will try it again someday.

  3. I'm not a crocheter, but I find a selfish joy from knitting in public. People are so baffled from it, and admire that people still knit at all, that it's a wonderful feeling.

    It's so wonderful that you've become a teacher! I've taught a few people to knit and it's a great feeling to pass on the skill!

  4. i have a similar feeling every time i'm crocheting/knitting in public, it's fun!
    hehe, i'm a school teacher and i love the pass it on feeling too..! Keep up the good work!
    thanks for passing by!
