Today in Hooking With … we are meeting Ashley Market from The Loopy Lamb. Ashley has a lot of different types of patterns on her site – some of her ami patterns are gorgeous!.   Shall we dive straight into the interview? Hi! My name…

Hooking With – Emma Wilkinson

Hooking With – Emma Wilkinson

In this edition of Hooking With … we meet Emma Wilkinson. I first met Emma through a business coach and she often jokes that we are cousins because we have the same surname. Emma is such a lovely, vibrant personality and I know a lot of you are going to love her designs!

Shall we meet Emma Wilkinson of Emma Wilkinson Designs?

Let’s start with a hello from Emma herself before we dive into our questions.

 

I live in the outer suburbs of Sydney, Australia,  with my husband and four sons.

With an advanced Diploma of Fine Art under my belt, I turned to the world of fibre art shortly before the birth of my third son.

Inspired by nature, in particular Australian landscapes, juxtaposed with bold shapes and colours, means you’ll either find me working in soft greys and muted greens, or bright pink and yellow! I also design for my climate – which means you’ll see me design fingerless gloves or lightweight scarves for my mild winter.

I currently design crochet patterns for digital release, kits and magazines.

Patterns range from Beginner Friendly to Intermediate Skill builders for those who have mastered the basics and want to master a new stitch or technique

Thanks for being here, and happy crocheting!

 

 

When did you start designing?

My first ‘real’ pattern was published in 2015 – I’ve given it a little facelift this year- the ‘Starburst Square’

Do you have a blog? If so, when did you start that up?

I started blogging way back in 2009, but my current blog has been around since 2016. You can find it at www.EmmaWilkinsonDesigns.com

What was your initial plan with your blog and designs?

My inital designs were small motifs, and I’ve moved on to more complex stitches and patterns

What designs do you specialize in?

I don’t feel like I have a niche – but I like homewares, bags and accessories

The Primrose Wrap by Emma

Do you have a favorite few stitches you like to use or do you always try to do new ones?

I have my favourites – like moss stitch, but I do like to try new and different techniques.

When you come up with an idea, does it come first from yarn you have or do you find yarn to fit the idea?

A bit of both really. I self publish, and do freelance design work – so sometimes need to fit a theme.

When did you start crocheting?

I first learned from my Grandma when I was 12, but I didn’t pick it up as a hobby until I was 30(ish) and my third son was born.

What made you decide to become a designer?

It felt like a natural progression from craft blogger to writing patterns. I’m not sure when I made that decsion, but it was my goal almost straight away.

 

 

Are there any patterns not your own that you just love?

Yes – I made a Tunisian Shawl last year called the Smirr Shawl, and I adore it.

Of your patterns, which is your favorite and why?

I’m really proud of the group collaborations I’ve been a part of, such as the Frindship CAL and the Unity CAL, which are both running right now.

Are there any crochet techniques/stitches you wish to learn this year?

I have done a tiny bit of mosaic crochet, but I’d like to do a bit more. I would also like to explore Tunisian Crochet some more.

What are your biggest crochet challenges and how do you plan on overcoming that?

As a crocheter – I’m easily distracted. I sometimes take my crochet out of the house so I can focus on it. As a designer, I’ve always struggled with asking for pattern testers, but I think I’m now comfortable asking!

Have you ever lost your crojo and how did you overcome that?

Yes! I love little cross stitch kits and will work one one of those, or even do some knitting. I learned how to knot socks over the lock down last year (lots of youtube videos). Or i’ll do something I don’t have to think about, like granny squares.

What three tips can you offer to anyone that crochets?

There are no crochet police – you can change things if you want to, however frogging a whole project that doesn’t spark joy can be just as

Hooking With… Shannon of The Loophole Fox

Hooking With… Shannon of The Loophole Fox

I am so thrilled to be sharing today’s interview with you guys! In today’s Hooking With meet Shannon, a designer that I have met through some events we have been part of and are in the same designers group on IG. She is such a lovely soul, very supportive and a great cheerleader! I can’t wait for you to meet her …

Say Hi Shannon!

Hi everyone! I’m Shannon, the human behind The Loophole Fox. 18 years ago, I taught myself to crochet from books I bought with allowance money (before YouTube was a thing) and a ton of determination. I have always been an “I can make that!” type, so designing came naturally to me. I love designing cozy, warm and practical items; the type that make you feel comfortable, at home and happy. Within this scope, I set out to write beginner friendly patterns that are packed with personality.

In life (and within my blog/presence), I aim to spread happiness and acceptance for myself and others. I believe in helping others whenever possible, so you can often find me donating portions of my profits to causes I believe in or donating patterns that help crocheters create for causes they believe in. At my core, I feel called to help make the world a better place, even if that means one baby step at a time. 

Outside of being a crochet designer, I’m a wife, a “mom” to two cats and a dog, a painter and a nature lover. When I’m not crocheting, you can find me curled up on my corner of the couch reading an epic fantasy novel and eating Flaming Hot Cheetos, playing video games with my husband or wandering around in nature trying to find the best place to swim.

 

 

When did you start designing?

I started designing in 2018 when a good friend of mine announced he was going to be a father. He and his girlfriend searched high and low for a specific style of baby blanket and couldn’t find what they wanted. “I can make that!” I said, and set off to work. That was the first design I ever wrote down, so that’s what I would count as my start of designing.

Before that, I never truly followed a pattern and always altered it or crocheted freeform. It wasn’t that out of my scope to design but, previous to the baby blanket, I never made the same thing twice or wrote down a pattern.

 

Do you have a blog?  If so, when did you start that up?  

I do have my own little cozy corner of the internet in the form of a blog. I’ve always enjoyed writing, so writing for my blog feels natural and I appreciate the ability to share my patterns and core beliefs with those who identify the same.

I started my blog in September 2019. Technically, I set everything up in May 2019 but I was still working very long hours as a Sales Manager for a nationally recognized company so I truly didn’t have the energy to put into it. In August of 2019, my husband accepted a position in a different county that required us to move and we both thought, well, there’s the sign for me to refocus and switch my own career path.

 

 

What was your initial plan with your blog and designs?

My initial plan with my blog was always to share free crochet patterns and I have stuck to that. Throughout the last year, I have evolved to include stitch tutorials, articles and “how-to”s and similar. 

I have also started including YouTube tutorials for some (not all) of my patterns and I have really enjoyed the process of learning how to teach via video.

 

How have your designs and designing process evolved?

When I started my blog and publishing my designs, I didn’t have a very direct “plan” or brand. I simply just designed what sounded nice. While this has been a fun (and rewarding!) adventure, I am evolving now into sets of patterns and a certain style.

In terms of how my actual designing process has changed, I now use a pencil instead of a pen in my notebook. It sounds silly, but it’s absolutely groundbreaking for me! Haha. I save so much paper now.

 

What designs do you specialize in?

Currently, I would have to say accessories and baby blankets. My favorite things to crochet are cozy and comfortable.

Do you have a favorite few stitches you like to use or do you always try to do new ones?

I try to always use new ones but I have to say, I almost always go back to (US) half double crochet. Something about working a half double crochet is so soothing to me, I can’t not use it.

Otherwise, I am a huge fan of the marguerite (star) stitch, moss (linen) stitch and the box stitch.

Shannon’s Retro Infinity Scarf uses the moss stitch

When you come up with an idea, does it come first from yarn you have or do you find yarn to fit the idea?

I usually find the yarn to fit the idea. There have been times where I’ve seen a yarn and the idea comes to me, but usually I have an idea and go on an extensive trek to find the perfect yarn for it.

 

When did you start crocheting?

I started crocheting when I was 12. My grandmother crocheted and I desperately wanted her to teach me instead of just enlist me to roll her yarn for her. Despite rolling many yarn skeins for her, she wasn’t able to teach me in the small amount of time we had together. So, determined to learn, I purchased books from the local department store and set off crocheting.

I may have punted the books across my bedroom a few times. I am absolutely in love with how YouTube has made learning new hobbies so much easier.

 

What made you decide to become a designer?

A lot of things came together at once for me when I finally decided to jump into designing and posting my work for the world.

Back then, I was working as a Sales Manager for an insurance company. I was good at it and I loved my employees, but it didn’t feel fulfilling. On top of that, I found myself stressed, working long hours, having little to no time for my hobbies, suffering from even more migraines than usual and heightened anxiety. I hadn’t picked up my yarn and hook for a while and finally did. My anxiety melted away and I felt happier and more at peace than I had for a long time. 

I’ve always loved to crochet and I’ve always had a drive to help people somehow. Going back to college for 6+ years to get a degree that might not even get me anywhere sounded unappealing. So, it was like putting two and two together. I loved crochet, I already was making my own designs and I wanted to help people. It seemed only natural to me to become a designer on a more legitimate scale.

Are there any patterns not your own that you just love?

Oh my gosh, so many. Too many to count. I feel like I am constantly surfing Instagram and just crushing on every project a crochet designer showcases. I unfortunately don’t have the time right now to follow their patterns, but I certainly have a few in my “to-do” list.

 

Who/what inspired you?  Does this still inspire you?  Why?

For my designs, I would have to say the Scandanavian Minimalist style really speaks to me. This is the style that I’d deck my house in if I had the money to completely redecorate my house. I find it to be so warm, cozy and concise.

In life, my inspiration is definitely my husband. I know this sounds cliche but this man has a tenacity and determination unlike anything I have ever seen. He knows how to accept and move on, or pivot and try again. He is also the true embodiment of “water off a duck’s back”. Nothing bothers him and he always has a bright, loving smile on his face. 

 

Of your patterns, which is your favorite and why?

Oh man, that’s a toss up between my Arctic Beanie and my Something New baby blanket.

I love the Arctic Beanie design because it is classic enough for both men and women. It’s cozy while staying light weight – I really dislike when a beanie or hat are so heavy that I notice them. It has just enough texture to have some brilliant personality, but not so much style that it is too feminine or masculine. I am not-so-patiently waiting for it to be cooler so I can wear it. 

The Something New baby blanket I designed for my husband’s boss and, when it came time to give it to him, he nearly had to pry it out of my fingers! I absolutely loved how timeless it looked when finished and the yarn showed such a lovely stitch definition. I am infinitely in love with that baby blanket, despite not being able to have children myself.

 

Are there any crochet techniques/stitches you wish to learn this year?

I am hoping to find the time in 2021 to learn Tunisian crochet. I love how different the technique looks, so I am really looking forward to it.

 

What are your biggest crochet challenges and how do you plan on overcoming that?

I think my biggest challenge is realizing that I can’t do everything all the time. I am very much a 100% all-in all the time type of person. My biggest challenge is slowing down and allowing time for myself to follow patterns by others, relax a bit, or take a full day off.

I think this happens when you’re not only passionate about growing your “business” but also so passionate about what you’re doing. If I don’t have my yarn and hook in hand, I’m probably on my laptop researching, revising, updating, etc. In the coming year, I really need to learn how to give myself the weekend to relax.

Have you ever lost your crojo and how did you overcome that?

The only time I truly feel like I’ve lost my crojo was after what I refer to as Scarf-pocalypse. I recently released my Simplicity scarf design and I love it. I posted it on my personal Facebook account as a “look what I made!” to my friends and so many people wanted one.

Going back to the “realizing I can’t do everything all the time” challenge, I accepted commissions which is something I don’t normally do. I ended up with about 10 Simplicity scarf commissions on top of the three I already was making for the design.

 

 

I get so bored of making the same thing over and over that it really was a struggle for me to get it done (on top of my time blogging). When the final scarf was finished, I held it above my head and made a victory noise.

I didn’t crochet for a few days after that. I spent my time focusing on some other things. One night, while scrolling through IG and crushing on projects, I was hit with inspiration again and picked up my hook.

I think it’s important to give yourself a break and let inspiration come to you, instead of forcing it.

 

What three tips can you offer to anyone that crochets?

  1. There is no right or wrong way. I remember this when I was learning to crochet. “You’re holding your hook wrong!” “You are holding your yarn wrong!” “You’re supposed to do this, not that!” While, sure, I’ll concede that there are some technical bits to crochet you need to have correct, what matters most is that you’re happy and enjoying what you’re doing.
  2. Community over Competition; Act with love in your heart. So many things are debated, shamed and ridiculed these days. Crochet/crafting does not need to be one of them. We have the amazing ability to connect with and communicate with crocheters from all around the world by the phones in our pockets. Be kind to yourself and to others.
  3. If you get frustrated, walk away for a few minutes. This works for anything in life. Give yourself a breather, take a minute to relax, and look at your project/situation with fresh eyes.

Hooking With …. Allison Bostrom

Hooking With …. Allison Bostrom

In this edition of Hooking With we are meeting Allison Bostrom from Clair De Lune Fiber Art. I have gotten to know Allison a little bit over recent months. We ‘met’ while participating in some of the events over the summer. She is a gorgeous human being with a big heart and I am so pleased that she has agreed to be interviewed. Now you can meet her too!

 

Say hello to Allison!

I’m Allison Bostrom, the designer, creator, and very-much-still-learning photographer/social media manager behind Clair de Lune Fiber Art. I design stimulating crochet and knit patterns for everything from garments and accessories to homewares. My goal in writing patterns is to encourage makers to learn new stitches and construction techniques, or to reconsider the ones they know. Though working with yarn is always relaxing for me, I find a real joy in pushing myself to do something new and different with it. Wherever possible, I include photo tutorials for both lefties and righties to make my patterns more approachable.

 

 

When I’m not crocheting or knitting, I’m juggling a bunch of other identities. Last year, I decided to go back to school for International Development, so I spend a lot of time reading and writing and wrestling with challenging ideas (good for the soul, that!). I hope to have a career working on refugee issues someday, although I’m still deciding exactly what I want to do. While in school, I work as a tutor and also help out with childcare for relatives. I have chronic migraines, so a fair amount of my time is spent managing my health as well. My non-yarn hobbies include cooking, baking, gardening, doing puzzles, and playing piano and guitar. I occasionally dabble in painting, although I’m not very good at it. Before I decided to pursue a career in humanitarian/development work, I was in a PhD program for Astronomy & Astrophysics. It’s been nice to have my yarny hobbies to fall back on during a pretty hectic time in my life!

 

When did you start designing?

I started designing about a year ago. For about a year prior to that, I had been trying to sell finished products, and it just wasn’t for me. I didn’t like making multiples of the same item, and I found the whole process discouraging. I had been designing my own little patterns for many years before that, but it was only as I was marketing finished products made from my own designs that I realized there was nothing stopping me from writing up the patterns! Once I switched to designing, I was so much happier.

Do you have a blog?

I don’t have a blog as of now. My patterns are on four different platforms (Ravelry, Etsy, LoveCrafts, and Ribblr), which is a lot of work, but I still feel that I have a good deal of control over when/how much I work on my little side business. I haven’t ruled out starting a blog, but for now I’m nervous about the idea of committing that much to it. (My life feels very full right now!).

Roots Wrap (knit pattern)

What was your initial plan with your designs?

Like many designers, I sort of fell into it backward since I was designing finished items to sell at first. I imagined that I’d formally write up the designs I had already made based off the notes that I’d taken in my phone, but instead I got really excited about the whole process and I found I had lots of new ideas. I’m really frugal, so a lot of my early designs (and some recent ones!) were made to use up yarn I already had.

How have your designs and designing process evolved?

Interestingly, I was designing a lot of baby items to sell, and I have yet to publish a single pattern for any of them! Once I decided to sell patterns, I focused more on what I wanted to make for myself, so it’s been mostly garments, accessories, and home items. I still enjoy making baby gifts, so I do plan to eventually write up those patterns. I don’t want to abandon that other stuff, though. There are some more garments in various stages of planning that I’m very “stresscited” about.

 

 

What designs do you specialize in?

Right now, I’d say accessories. For me they strike a nice balance – they don’t take a huge amount of yarn typically, so they’re fairly budget-friendly, but they’re still big enough that I can really play around with texture. Plus, I love having handmade wearables. Someday I hope to be known for garments as well, but as of now I’ve only got a handful of those.

Do you have a favorite few stitches you like to use or do you always try to do new ones?

I’m a huge fan of texture. I really enjoy using post stitches and puff stitches, and I love a nice picot or crab stitch edge. I do tend to get bored, though, so if I find myself relying a lot on one or two techniques I try to push myself to do something new. This makes it hard to develop a “brand”, but I’m a bit of an intellectual and I like to experiment and branch out. I guess you could say I’m still finding my brand.

When you come up with an idea, does it come first from yarn you have or do you find yarn to fit the idea?

Ooh…this is a great question. I think for me it’s a mix of both. As I mentioned above, I often try to design patterns that use yarn I have lying around. In those cases, the yarn definitely informs my ideas about the pattern rather than the other way around.

However, as I’ve gotten more confident in my designing capabilities, I have started to make yarn purchases based on the idea in my head. It’s definitely a little scarier that way, particularly if you’re making garments, because you’ve got a thousand yards of yarn staring you in the face, waiting to be used! In either case, there have been times that I’ve had what I thought was a great idea for the yarn (or yarn for the idea) and it just didn’t work.

 

 

I’m getting better at critically evaluating my own work and deciding whether to start over with new yarn or a new stitch pattern, even though it hurts!

When did you start crocheting?

My mom taught me when I was about 10 years old (I’m 27 now). When I was little, we used to go with my grandparents to a Christmas brunch every December. We had over an hour in the car and I had been begging my mom to teach me, so we sat cramped together in the backseat and she showed me the ropes. Looking back, I imagine it was probably not very fun for her, but I had a great time!

Sunflower Bunting

What made you decide to become a designer?

For a long time, I think I felt there was some magic “something” that you had to have in order to be a designer. At some point, I guess I realized that the only difference between them and me was that designers write down their patterns and put them out in the world. I think it helped that I had been posting my original creations on Instagram and sometimes people would comment nice things. Getting that positive feedback gave me the confidence to give designing a shot.

Are there any patterns not your own that you just love?

Oh boy, there are loads. I haven’t been working off other people’s patterns as much since I started designing, but I definitely do still use them. I’m a huge fan of Polly Plum’s afghan blocks. I made myself an Alchemy Cardigan (by Make & Do Crew) in the spring and I’ve been loving that. My mom actually asked me to make her one, so we’ll match once I get that done! I tested the Lunar Lace Tunic by Desert Blossom Crafts, and it’s one of the most comfortable handmade garments I own. Those are just some of the ones I’ve made – if we get into the patterns I own but haven’t made yet (including quite a few on this site!), I’ll really get into the weeds!

Who/what inspired you?Does this still inspire you?  Why?

Partially my inspiration comes from thinking about things that I want to use/wear. Sometimes I can’t find what I want in a store, and other times I just enjoy the challenge of trying to create what’s in my head. However, I also draw a lot of inspiration from other designers. I spend probably more time than I should on Instagram, but I love seeing what other people are up to! I really enjoy taking a concept that I’ve seen used in other people’s work and making it my own.

Of your patterns, which is your favorite and why?

This feels a bit like being asked to pick a favorite child, but I’m going to do my best! I’ll go with the Sunny Skies Circle Bag, which I published last month. I use my bag all the time, but the reason it’s my favorite is because I’m proud of the thought and time that went into it. I’ve made a real effort since I started designing to pay careful attention to details, and I think I did that well in this pattern. I love the way the embossed design came out, and the chunky crocheted button on the backside is really functional but also (I think) very cute.

Sunny Skies Circle bag

Are there any crochet techniques/stitches you wish to learn this year?

I feel like I should say Tunisian crochet since it’s been so big lately, but since I know how to knit I always think to myself that I’ll just knit when I want to get that stockinette look (hopefully that doesn’t sound arrogant – Tunisian is very cool!). For me, I think it’s mosaic crochet. I’ve dabbled, but I’ve never actually done a project with it. I think the visual effect is really striking, and I’d love to try my hand at designing my own mosaic motif.

 

What are your biggest crochet challenges and how do you plan on overcoming that?

Confidence was definitely a big one for me, and still is sometimes. If I have a design that I really love and it doesn’t do well on Ravelry/Etsy/social media, I start to wonder if I’m just biased and it’s really not very good. In reality, I know that it’s usually the algorithms that prevent people from seeing my posts, so it’s not that people don’t like it – they’re not even seeing it. I try to remind myself that for me, designing isn’t a career, so it should be fun and not stressful. I have to remember that if I’m happy with how it turned out, that’s the most important thing.

My other challenge is getting 90% of the way through a project and then getting bored – I’m really awful with that. I try for a mixed carrot/stick approach on that one. Depending on how the project is going and how soon my self-imposed deadline is, I’ll either allow myself to start another project for a set period of time and hope to return refreshed, or I will prohibit myself from starting a new one until I’m done. I probably sound crazy, but it works for me!

Have you ever lost your crojo and how did you overcome that?

When I do, it usually doesn’t last long, but I find that it is really helpful to have other hobbies. Frankly, I have far too many hobbies. More hobbies than anyone could meaningfully pursue in a lifetime. It’s kind of ridiculous. But the nice thing is that if I lose my crojo (or my…knit-jo? Or any other mojos), I can always pick up something else that gives me the same sense of satisfaction. Taking a little break usually does the trick. I also think it can be helpful to pick a small project that you’re excited about, either because it’s something you want to wear/use or because it looks like fun to make. Quick gratification can be a good way to remind yourself of why you enjoy crocheting in the first place.

Wellspring Cardigan

What three tips can you offer to anyone that crochets?

  • My first tip is to follow your style. Maybe it’s just because I’m embedded so deeply in the crochet world, but it does seem that crochet is especially susceptible to trends that spread like wildfire. And hey – if you love pocket shawls or fur pom poms, go for it! But if you don’t, that’s cool, too. I think maintaining diversity in crochet (both people-diversity and project-diversity) makes the community better.
  • My second tip is that there is no “wrong” way to crochet. If you do a stitch differently, but you like the way it looks, that’s not only okay, it’s awesome! New ideas are made that way, and we can always use more of those. I think a lot more crocheters could be designers, even if just for themselves, if they felt a bit more liberated from the perceived rules of the game.
  • My final tip stems from a personal pet peeve. Crocheting should not be a competition sport. I’m a very competitive person, but there’s no place for that in crafting. It drives me crazy when I see people being shamed for the yarn they use, or any other personal choice they make for their crochet projects. I encourage all crafters to practice kindness in their crafting community!
