Crochet Inspiration

 Crochet is an versitile medium, which injects a vibrant punch into anything from accessories to automobiles. Whether it's the beautiful crochet artwork of Olek or the classic granny square, I have always been inspired by its endless possibilities.  Lately I'm seeing more crochet used in design.

  My grandmother crocheted a sweet dream blanket for me, and lacy crocheted snowflakes during the winter, among other beautiful pieces.  She recently taught me the basic stitch and I ran with it.  I'm in the process of crocheting a whimsical beehive/bucket purse out of ripped tee shirt pieces (similar to the ones in the fringe necklace). (see image below.)

  I look forward to being able to design more complicated crochet creations in the future.  But right now I am quite inspired by the crochet work of others!

  1. Margo Isadora, you are a gorgeous being, and so is this blog post. Thank you so much for mentioning me and my Hoop-la Scarf. I would love to live in the crochet caravan, and climb the crochet tree. Can't wait to see your finished crochet tee bag. Great job! Katie. xxx
