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!)
Crochetville is very proud to have designer Tove Fevang with us today, March 16, as one of the featured designers on our 2016 Designer Blog Tour in honor of National Crochet Month (NatCroMo).
I was born and raised in Norway, where I still live. I have crocheted since I was 5 years old, when my grandmother taught me. I was educated in textile and design, later also graphic design and journalism. I have written 18 books, three of which are crocheting and Tunisian crochet. These books have been translated into many languages, including English. I love to design new models and test new yarn.
1. Tell us about your favorite travel destination:
There are too many to list, and my last will always be the best one. So for this time it will be Myanmar!
2. Tell us about a “dream” travel location that you’d like to visit one day:
Japan, with all their heritage for crochet.
3. Do you visit yarn stores when traveling? If so, tell us about one of your favorite finds.
Sure! Yarntopia was a great experience when I was in Houston for Quilt Market last fall. I always have to find a yarn store wherever I´m traveling!
4. Packing: Tell us about any crochet clothing or accessories you pack when traveling. Do you have any cool packing tips to share?
All my crochet and Tunisian crochet hooks are packed in my self-made crochet and Tunisian cases. I never know when I will need one of any size.
5. 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 always have several projects that I bring with me. I can never decide which one I will work on, and want to have all “on hand.”
6. Do you have any stories or anything else travel-related that you’d like to share with our blog tour readers?
While traveling in Thailand in November and December of last year, I had problems with an arm and got help from an employee at the Spa at the hotel we stayed in. She would not have been paid for the help she gave me. Therefore, I decided to give her one of my books as a thank you, although I thought she not was a crocheter, but this was my kind of thanks. When I went to give her the book, she sat in the lobby and crocheted! We laughed lots after this, for she had not realized where my problem with my arm came from. Now everything became clear to her!
