Knitting and Crocheting


Now that the days are growing cooler and shorter, I've felt this urge to pull out the knitting needles and crochet hooks.  The other night I crocheted a scarf in the time it took to watch a movie, and though the scarf is a little non-rectangular, it'll do.  (Took me a while to find my rhythm again). 

I found this website that features some interesting creations of like-minded knitters and crocheters--I particularly like the pink bunny that can be seen from outer space.  And I seem to remember an octopus from my childhood--with braided legs.  Anyone else have one of those?  

In any case, enjoy.  Maybe you'll be inspired to create one of these on one of these upcoming winter nights.

I think I probably could use a new digestive system. But I don't knit.

Those are great! Love the anatomy ones! I have a couple of friends that are big knitters and I can't wait to show them.

As for me, I only knit my brows.

P.S. The Face arrived on my front porch yesterday! I made myself finish the book I was on, but I'm starting it today. Happy am I!!

Did you see the knitted fences from India? Wayyyy too cool!

Angela said...

Yes, I have to say that those fences were sheer art. So pretty! Why hasn't anyone around here picked up that idea? Much better than chain link! :-)

My mom crocheted gorgeous floor length tablecloths that remain a treasure in our family.

I once crocheted half of one slipper.

We made those octopuses in crafts at summer camp. I used to have a whole family of them, one from each summer. Not particularly cute, definitely not cuddly—but fun to make, anyway. And the closest I've ever come to sewing!
