Fresh Flickr Finds: Crochet Love

June 28, 2010, 08:27 am  Posted by Lark

Lately, I’ve been having certain urges to bring some bright colors and vintage vibe into my living space. And if there’s one medium that encapsulates both for me, it is crochet. There’s something so cheery about the combination of texture, color, and pattern. Unfortunately, crochet remains on my “to try one day” list at the moment, but some things are best enjoyed from a distance, like these inspiring finds from Flickr.

    The older ladies at the church where I work are always looking for small projects. I think they'd love the challenge of these designs.

    I'm in such a mood to start learning to crochet. I had an aunt once that taught me, but it's slipped out of my mind in the 30 years that have passed since then! Perhaps time to go to a class….

      AmandaCarestio says:

      I may have to try a class, too! You know, I'm pretty convinced that there could be some fun overlap between crochet squares and quilt blocks… might be fun to try, especially for the footstool!
