crochet on pinterest

it will probably come as no surprise that i’ve become addicted to pinterest over the christmas break

i’ve just made a new ‘pinboard’ to showcase crochet ideas and gifts – mine and other people’s

bird brooch

urban

i love experimenting … i made two crochet cuffs featuring beads and hardware

however, one cuff sold before i had a chance to photograph it

this one i got in time

i’ve called it urban

the beads are sustainable wood

the buttons are from my stash and the washers came from the hardware section at our local supermarket

for sale – click here

lemon rose

here is another early attempt at crochet jewelry

the variegated green and brown thread was originally embroidery on a knitted top, which was unpicked and wound into balls

the rose is done in a pale lemon yellow

simple chain ties are embellished with square wooden beads

sold

yet more freeform

after not doing any scrumbling for a while (too busy with subversive and other crochet), here are 2 which i made for a freeform crochet round robin

i took these photos with my phone … not the best quality, but you get the picture <=)

this one is going to someone who wanted pinks with a touch of red –

and this one is for a person who just loves aqua and orange –

the flowers are loosely arranged – the recipient can then add them wherever they like

i’m sending the beads as an extra little gift, for embellishment …

dutch subversive crochet

i just love the work of this dutch artist … it’s so nice to know there are more people who do subversive crochet + stitch

my parents were dutch so i feel a link to her and her work in more ways than one …

some pictures to tempt you –

here’s the link to her website – check out the gallery and other links, and don’t be put off by it being in dutch … the art speaks for itself –
