i heart fridays: crochet goodness

crochet goodness


Because of my love for yarn, I’m also drawn to all yarn craft. Crocheting has always been a bit of a mystery to me because I could never really follow a pattern. Every time I picked up a crochet instruction book, the terms seemed to be written in another language. So I took up knitting because I got it right away.

However, I’m drawn to the pretty patterns and shapes that crocheting naturally lends itself to. Plus, it works up so much faster than knitting normally does. I’m all for instant gratification! That’s one of the main reasons why I knit baby items (smaller = faster). Well, that plus my two girls, of course!

I love Lucy’s choice of colour. It reminds me of summer fruits like watermelon, peaches, plums and apricots!

I absolutely love the uniqueness of fellow Torontonian Margaret’s crochet covered rocks. The idea of stones mixed with the delicate cotton string — a beautiful balance. There’s a tutorial on the purl bee on her crocheted stones which I want to try one day once I’ve mastered my crocheting technique.

Why I heart these?
I’m automatically drawn to geometric shapes. There’s something about repeated patterns that appeals to me. I think there’s probably something that can be read from this, maybe about my personality or taste. If you know, please comment. I’d love to find out!

Have a happy weekend friends!

  1. Those crocheted blankets do look like fruit colors, so vibrant and beautiful!
    My mom crochets with the small thread like on the rocks. I bet she could do that too, I am actually surprised she has not yet?! I love the way they look!!! I pick up rocks here and there to display around the house. I believe I am drawn to those geometric shapes too. I like having my decorations balanced in displays, like the same look on each side of a mantel. Pictures with faces, if placed on a wall…..facing each other, not placed with them looking at a wall :) Maybe just the way some brains think it should be??!! :)

  2. Crocheted goodies are always lovely! I don’t know how to crochet but i do love the gorgeous colors of yarns and how they feel on my hands when i run through them! Have a lovely merry happy weekend and love to you!
