Well, hello there! The response to April's Question of the Month was fantastic and it was fun to hear everyone's favorite places to crochet. Without further ado, let's get into it!
Right here on the blog, we had two fantastic commenters sharing a common crochet place. Both LilPhanie and an anonymous commenter shared they love crocheting at home. The anonymous commenter has a special crochet corner, while LilPhanie prefers a comfy chair, although she will crochet around town, citing a few different places.
Other home crocheters included Dvora, Jimena, and Angeles on facebook. Angeles shared,
I love getting up early on weekends (when everybody is still sleeping) to crochet in the living room. I usually get to see hummingbirds at the feeder!!

Home is where the hook is for more crocheters on facebook, like Linda, who uses crochet to enjoy those precious few moments alone.

Martha, Jan, Michele, Agatha, Stacy, Cindy, and Linda W. also crochet in the home, whether it be in a comfy chair or a favorite room. Some like Netflix on the TV, while others prefer music. Good lighting is a consistent theme. Stacy set the following scene.

Sounds good to me. Others like to crochet while outdoors or on the go. Lonnie says,
I love crocheting in a nice comfy chair outside listing to the birds sing and the dogs play."
Dvora mentioned she used to crochet on the subway, and Kathy the Crafty Chica also crochets while in transit. She wrote,
[My favorite place to crochet] is in the car on road trips! I always pack a bag of yarn and aim to finish a scarf by the time I get home!
Fabulous! My very favorite comment was from Jean, who loves to crochet ANYWHERE!
For this month's question, we'd like to know about what inspires your crochet.
My crochet is inspired by community. Crafting and sharing my love of crochet with others. But what inspires you to crochet? Please comment here on the blog, or on facebook and you may be featured in the next QOTM post!
