A-Glamping We Will Go: 5th Annual National Crochet Month Blog Tour

Welcome to Crochetville’s fifth annual National Crochet Month (NatCroMo) blog tour, taking place each day of March 2017. Join us for a month of virtual glamping (aka glamorous camping), as we visit crochet designers, crochet-friendly local yarn stores, and yarn companies, as well as offer some fun giveaways.

Today’s Posts: Kathy Kelly | Tove Fevang | Donna Knox | Cascade Yarns

Want to Chat about the Tour?

Part of the fun of glamping is the daily round-up around the campfire, chatting and stitching with friends. We hope you’ll join us in our NatCroMo Facebook group, where we’ll be sharing daily camping recipes, campfire songs about crochet, and so much more! We’d also love to hear about your favorite things you’ve discovered on the tour and see photos of your current crochet projects. You’re invited to join us daily for virtual cocktails/appetizers and dinner. (We’ll be sharing links to some fabulous recipes!)

Tove Fevang

Crochetville is very proud to have designer Tove Fevang with us today, March 21, as one of the featured designers on our 2017 Designer Blog Tour in honor of National Crochet Month (NatCroMo). If you’d like to know even more about Tove, check out our post from last year’s blog tour.

About Tove:

My name is Tove Fevang. I was born and still live in Norway. I have worked as a designer since I finished my education in textile and design in the early 1980s. I was one of the founders pf The Norwegian Quilting Association in 1988. I have written 19 books on different topics, including three books on crochet. All of them have been translated into English and are published in the United States by Trafalgar Square Books. I´m also one of the founders and past president of The Norwegian Knitting Association and current editor of the member magazine “Paa pinnen”.

Do you crochet in public? If so, when and where?

Yes, all the time. I travel a lot, and my crochet is always with me. So I crochet on flights, in lounges, on buses and trains, and in waiting rooms.

Do you have a special place at home where you crochet? Tell us about it.

My favorite place to crochet is in my winter garden, where I have a view to the Oslofjord.

Tell us about any other fiber-related hobbies you enjoy.

I enjoy knitting and have also written five knitting books. I also enjoy embroidery, cross-stitch, and Hardanger embroidery; I have also written books about both topics.

How do you decide what to name your patterns?

I have never been very found of naming my patterns with fancy names. I usually name them as “Shawl So-and-So,” etc.
