The Crochet Express National Crochet Month Blog Tour


Welcome to Crochetville’s fourth annual National Crochet Month (NatCroMo) blog tour, taking place each day of March 2016. Join us as we take a virtual tour on our passenger steam train, The Crochet Express, visiting crochet designers, crochet-friendly local yarn stores, and yarn companies, and offer some fun giveaways.

Today’s Posts: Michelle Ferguson | Ellen Gormley | Amanda Perkins | Fiber Circle | Daily Giveaway

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!)

Tell us about your favorite travel destination.

So far, I have enjoyed Perdido Key, Florida. It has beautiful beaches and a nature preserve but isn’t too crowded.

Tell us about a “dream” travel location that you’d like to visit one day.

I’m looking forward to traveling to Ireland with a crochet tour in June 2016.

Do you visit yarn stores when traveling? If so, tell us about one of your favorite finds.

I’m afraid travel generally involves family activities and not so much yarn related adventures. I always bring yarn though and find that I get a great deal accomplished and designed while away.

Packing: Tell us about any crochet clothing or accessories you pack when traveling. Do you have any really cool packing tips to share?

I always travel with a scarf whether it’s decorative or needed for warmth on a plane, it always comes in handy!

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?

Depending on the length of the trip I’ll take more or fewer projects. One project that is convenient for the car or plane, a bigger project for evenings, yarn that can be used for designing, and sometimes someone else’s pattern so that I can learn something new.
