Welcome to Crochetville’s fifth annual National Crochet Month (NatCroMo) blog tour, taking place each day of March 2017.

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.

OMB! this is a must have for me. My grandson, now 17 has ♥’d The Beatles since he was small. We took him to Disney World when he was 7 and they had a band who looked like The Beatles and sang all their songs – grandson was singing and dancing up a storm to it all! I think he was drawing as big a crowd as the band was.
The song “Ticket To Ride” was originally named “Ticket To Ryde”, a city in England. Later changed to RIDE, as no one in the USA was familiar with the city!
I can remember the first time the Beatles appeared on The Ed Sullivan Show. I was too young to understand why my sisters were in such a frenzy!
Grew up listening to a lot of their songs. I like amigurumi because just about anything can be made into one…and they are often very cute!
I like amigurumi because it pretty much can be anything/anyone you want it to be
This is adorable! It would be so much fun to make these! The Beatles were one of the all time great bands!
I grew up with the Beatles music. When my children were teens, they started listening to their music. What a great giveaway!
What is amazing is how well their music has stood the test of time. I grew up listening to them.
The Beatles song Something and Eric Clapton’s songs Layla and Wonderful Tonight are all written about the same woman.
My 17 year old loves the Beatles! I’ve never done amigurumi before, so this would be fun for me.
I was so excited to see this today! I love the Beatles so much. Their music brought me through some tough times and still makes me feel good when I hear it. Fun fact, Yesterday was originally titled “Scrambled Eggs” as Paul would have the melody down before writing the lyrics.
My father in law is a HUGE Beatles fan. I would make these as a gift for him!
One of the greatest bands of all time. Definitely changed music forever. Thanks for the giveaway.
A little-known fact is that George Harrison was the first of the Beatles to visit the US. In 1963 he visited his sister Louise in Illinois, and also spent time in New York and St. Louis. It would be the last time he could freely walk about in public in the US without being recognized. https://www.beatlesbible.com/1963/09/16/george-harrison-holiday-america/
I love amigurumi because you can make an object that can be played with or treasured by whoever receives it and the choices are almost endless.
Friends were watching me work on an amigurumi Sunday. The wife said the husband (a computer geek) was watching in awe. I had trouble with the Intro to Computing class I took from him years ago, so it’s amazing to me that he was impressed.
My favorite thing about amigurumi is that it doesn’t only appeal to little kids. I sell crocheted goods for my club at school and they are often the first to sell out!
I like amigurumi because it can be personalized.
I love being able to create 3D creations with crochet via amigurumi!
I love amigurumi because they are so cute and small. I like that they can be completed quickly.
Just found this, where rock have I been under. lol Love what I’m seeing 🙂
I have been learning to play a lot of their songs on the fiddle.
I love amigurumi because it can bring out the kid in all of us and also my grandchildren love it also!! 🙂
My daughter has been watching a show called beat bugs that are about little cute bugs that get into situations and they sing Beatle songs. Such a great way to be introduced to the Beatles. She sings Beatles songs and didn’t even know it. She was quite surprised when I showed her a classic video of them. She argued that they weren’t singing it right. Lol
I love making amigurumi, which is a little odd as I hate sewing the pieces together. But I so enjoy seeing all kinds of critters, especially monkeys, come alive that I stick with it.
I like amigurumi because they are small and cute. Plus, my nieces love them.
