The Crochet Express National Crochet Month Blog Tour
Want to Chat about the Tour?
Part of the fun of taking a passenger steam train trip is talking with your fellow passengers. This year, we’re providing two locations where our passengers can get to know each other. We’d 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!)
Jackie Fenwick, DS Designs
Crochetville is very proud to have designer Jackie Fenwick with us today, March 14, as one of the featured designers on our 2016 Designer Blog Tour in honor of National Crochet Month (NatCroMo).
I’m an Army wife and mother to two elementary-aged kids. I grew up in Northern Minnesota where winters are long and cold, but only learned to crochet in college. My crocheting started to take off when I lived in Alabama and turned into a passion while living in Kentucky. My family and I have lived in 6 (soon to be 7) states and I love that crochet has provided a great community of like-minded people no matter where I live.
1. Tell us about your favorite travel destination:
We’ve been fortunate enough to live in many places and enjoy being tourists everywhere we have lived. I always love to travel home to Minnesota to see the beautiful lakes and countryside. My husband and I have also spent a lot of time in South Carolina and are always up for a beach vacation.
2. Tell us about a “dream” travel location that you’d like to visit one day:
I’ve always dreamed of visiting Alaska. It’s definitely on my bucket list.
3. Packing: Tell us about any crochet clothing or accessories you pack when traveling. Do you have any cool packing tips to share?
When I started thinking about this question, I realized I only have one crocheted item of my own! I’ve made myself a few things, but so far I’ve given them all away except for one hat. I probably should work on that.
4. Tell us about any crochet projects you take with you when traveling: How many projects do you take? How do you decide which ones to take?
I recently went on a trip and one whole suitcase was yarn. I’m a little embarrassed to admit that, but I couldn’t decide what should make the cut. I even used vacuum seal bags so I could fit more in the suitcase.
