Crochet Fun

I have been busy crocheting lately. I have decided that it is the yarn craft for me! I have been really into this Granny Stripe baby blanket I am making for a friend. I am inpired by Lucy's happy little blog: Attic 24. She has a great tutorial for this and other fun crochet projects...and a flickr group to explore that will make you never want to leave the house!

I am loving the creation of this sea of blue!

I am still working on my granny square blanket, but somewhere along the way I got derailed and inspired to create a few other crochet items.

This just came to me one evening and I got obsessed with making it:

Now I know this might be off the deep end, but I smile everytime I come home and I like to think my letter carrier smiles when he leaves me mail. Or he thinks a crazy lady lives here.

I found the above pattern on a free sheet from the craft store. I have no idea what to do with it, but it was fun to make and I got to try out some new stitches.

And watermelons are always nice for a bit of summer cheer. Also, just collecting dust on the kitchen counter, but I like the cheerulness. This pattern can be found here.

Are you doing summer crafts?


  1. Those watermelons are cute! I immediately thought "coasters" when I saw them.

  2. I love your projects! Everything looks so great. Have you seen this cool sampler? http://www.etsy.com/listing/50366352/hand-printed-original-sampler

  3. I'm going to have to make one of those granny stripes blankets. Love the blues you are using. Nearly done with a baby blanket so I can start something new. :)

  4. Ooh these are all so pretty..
