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?
