Hello and welcome to Micmarmik! An Instagram account, named Micmarmik, was started in Mars 2015. The name is based on the three first letters in Micke, Maria and Mikaela. The three of us planed to run this account together, writing about crocheting, gardening etc. I posted pictures of my crocheted work and garden flowers. Time went by and I continued posting pictures. Mikaela started a new account named @beauty.mickis and Micke worked a lot with IT development (no time for IG). Eventually, it became my account alone. I’m so happy about my account. It gives me a lot of inspiration.
I don’t remember the first time I crocheted, but it was a long time ago. My dad taught me how to crochet. He crocheted clothes for my big troll doll. My troll got a sailor cap in brown cotton yarn and an overall in pink and white cotton yarn. I loved it. Over the following years, I crocheted from time to time.
I had not crocheted in a while when a friend, Anna @anna_ragnhild64, took me to a yarn selling store. I had a feeling that if I would buy then I would not be able to stop myself. I did buy anyway, partly because of my friends enthusiasm, and because yarn is like candy for the eyes! Now I have a room full with yarn (can’t by more now..haha), an Instagram account (mostly about yarn and crochet) and a blog about crochet that we built together, Micke and I. I have learned a lot about webbdesign, it has been hard work, but also a lot of fun. It has been a wonderful journey, and I can’t wait to see what the future brings. // Maria 🙂
About my logotype
Kristoffer @kbenne made a great job with my logotype. Inspiration comes from my lemonsquarepillow pattern. I love the discreet look of the two crochet hooks and the colorful happiness. Thank you so much Kristoffer!
