Loveland, Colo., December 2, 2008: Interweave announced today that is has
completed its acquisition of CrochetMe.com, a popular social media site for
crochet enthusiasts, from its developer, Kim Werker, in a move that adds to
its already strong lineup of fiber craft media and online properties, which
includes its crochet magazine, “Interweave Crochet.”
I’m a starter. I’m a brainstormer. I’m a novelty junkie. I’m like a professional enthusiast. And when I get to the point that I love my work because I’ve come to fully understand it, I bask for a short while (a very short while), and then I wake up one day and I feel, quite literally and out of the blue, like I’m going to DIE. And so I woke up one morning this past summer and felt like my ankles were shackled to blocks of concrete. I lost my motivation. I became depressed. And I realized in August that I was feeling those things because I was no longer stimulated by my work. It wasn’t new to me anymore; I wasn’t learning all the time; I had accomplished most of what I’d set out to do. I was, worst of all, bored.
Best of luck, Kim, in whatever comes your way next. You’ve left big shoes to fill.
