Annemarie's Crochet Blog ~ Designer Showcase
My name is Annemarie, I’m 37 years old and I live in the lovely city of Delft in The Netherlands. I have a blog that’s called Annemarie’s Haakblog (Annemarie’s Crochet Blog) that’s all about crochet. I write in both Dutch and English. Besides having a blog I have an Etsy-shop where I sell some of my patterns.
I get inspired by lots of things. Ofcourse I read lots of crochet books and magazines, but I’m a huge fan of Google as well. Most of my new projects start from there. I just enter ‘crochet’ and see where Google takes me. Pinterest is very interesting as well. There’s a huge collection of gorgeous crochet projects on Pinterest.
The first time I tried crochet I was about 8 years old. I learnt how to do crochet at school. Or in fact, I didn’t learn. I had to make an egg cosy, but it turned out to be a huge hat because I didn’t understand what I was doing. I took about 25 years before I got interested in crochet again. In January 2010 I followed a crochet workshop, just because I thought it might be a fun thing to do. I’d never expected it to change my life this much. I’ve been crocheting practically every day ever since and I still love it.
