A-Glamping We Will Go: 5th Annual National Crochet Month Blog Tour
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!)
Lisa Naskrent, Crochet Garden
Crochetville is very proud to have designer Lisa Naskrent with us today, March 6th, 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 Lisa, check out our post from last year’s blog tour.
I always knew I would be a creator, of some sort. I was always running around the house trying to come up with an idea to fix this or that, or tucked away in a corner conjuring up in my head in my own little make-believe world of fairies, wolves and mermaids. I guess in a way I still do that- from using yarn as a fix-it around the house or using yarn to create clothes or pretty little things for around the house!
Do you crochet in public? If so, when and where?
Oh yes! I am known around town as the crochet lady. Maybe one day the cat lady and I will get a secret hideout together and spend secret hours all through the night- I crocheting, and she admiring all her cats. Well perhaps not, being that i am allergic to cats. Oh yes, back to the question. I bring my crochet everywhere, you never know when you will have even 2 minutes between something or another to crochet! Those are my “mindless projects” I am working on- where I do not need to focus or count. I even bring it to restaurants waiting for food!
Do you have a special place at home where you crochet? Tell us about it.
Oh about everywhere I am at. Whether on the couch watching a show, up in bed before turning in, or on the kitchen chair while chatting to grandma 🙂
Share the story of your favorite thing you’ve ever crocheted or designed.
Hmm each new design becomes my new favorite! haha. Currently, it is a new neat little stitch combination I am working on and not ready to reveal that yet. However, I would have to say aside from that is my Bunny Dress! 🙂 (See pattern photo below, So Hoppy.)
How do you decide what to name your patterns?
I really have no set formula. Sometimes it is the color, sometimes it is the personality of the kid, sometimes it is the personality of the design itself! (Yeah, that does happen, I admit I am a little odd at times :))
Tell us about your most popular pattern.
I would probably have to say that would be the Maia Shawl.
I will be offering two specials!
A coupon for 35% off of any order! Code: natcro1730

If you’re not familiar with my work already, I’d like to share three of my designs with you.
1. So Hoppy, $6.99
She will get hopping with this darling crochet dress pattern! Perfect for spring, and such a darling dress to wear for Easter, or any day of the week! The front is adorned with easy to crochet flopping ears. With so many sizes, sisters and friends can have matching dresses!
2. Chasing Rainbows Afghan, $6.50
text goes hereWrap them up with little thoughts and big dreams with this chasing rainbows afghan. This crochet pattern consists of a simple 4-row repeat- allowing you to take it with you or work on it while watching them play. Yarns not in use are carried up while not in use, and the edging is crocheted over minimizing the need to weave in ends.
3. Katlyn Hat – Messy Bun or Regular Hat, $6.00
This hat design comes with two options: crochet it as a messy bun with a hole at the top, or you can crochet it as a regular hat with a closed top. This interesting stitch combination brings either option to life with cascading spiral textured stitches wrapping around. With so many sizes and both options, you can make one for everyone- including the boys!
