Got My Crochet Groove Back!!

Yay!! For one panicky moment, I thought I had forgotten how to crochet. So glad it all came back. Sunbonnets are made and stitched together.

I made this leaf which I am going to use for the hatband. Now I have to make the flowers.

I have missed crocheting. A lot!! So I spent about 30 minutes yesterday looking at photos of crochet stuff I have saved on my hard drive. These are the ones I wish I could reach out and touch.


Granny Square Handbag

Stunning… takes my breath away.

Don’t have the link to it, unfortunately. 😦


Crochet Shawls

Lucy, over at Attic24, made this shawl. Gorgeous. I WANT ONE!! (Crystal at Beadhappilyeverafter was making one. Wonder if she finished hers.)

I do believe this version is what got the crochet hooks a-hookin’. I like the more colorful versions best.

I like the flowers in this one too. (no link)

Crochet Pincushion

I am totally smitten by this little pincushion. Saw it on Crystal’s blog.

Here it is on Etsy. Going to make one. I guess it will be OK. Doubt anyone can stake claim to the basic Granny Square as their own creation.

Crochet Pillow

I love this ripple stitch pillow. A few years ago, I bought several crochet books on the ripple stitch. All different kinds. I would love to make this one day.

I think I first saw this on Lucy’s site. Let me go check.

Yep… 3 years ago. Time sure does fly.

Crochet Clock

Can’t remember where I saw this. Isn’t it just adorable? Would brighten up any room. Anyone know what crochet stitch this is? I have some old clocks I got dirt cheap at the thrift store. I could do this.

Crochet Hexagon Afghan

Isn’t this pretty? So colorful. I would make it larger, wider. And not cut off the bottom hexies. I would let the full hexie extend and go with the odd shape. Or use white yarn where the half hexies are cut off.

No link. I just save photos of stuff I like.


And last….

Crochet Tissue Box Covers

OK, OK, don’t laugh. But I love these. With tissue boxes now gone all super ultra high fashion, no one probably puts them in covers any longer. But I still do. I may have the links to these stored in my Bookmarks. Let me see if I can find them.

Found one.  http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/grannys-tissue-box-cover

Thanks for coming along with me on my Crochet Eye Candy tour. What fun!!


Dear Crochet,

Now I remember why I loved you so much.

Sincerely,

Donna Wanna Crochet 😀


Go here to make your own sunbonnet potholder. I didn’t do all the bells and whistles. Just simple and easy after making the sunbonnet.
