Crochet Inspiration

Recently, I mentioned to my hubby that I really wanted a good crochet project. A hook and some yarn are a lot more naptime and movie-watching friendly than a loud sewing machine! So, the other day, Fox came home with a small skein of black wool yarn. So that I could start him a crocheted sweater. For his 6'5" frame. To be done in time for winter. Requiring probably 18 skeins. At 5 dollars each. He is still not getting why I have put off this project for so long! (Yes, for years he has been begging me to make him a sweater that would actually reach down past his wrists for the first time in his life. I have never crocheted any article of clothing.)

And I am still putting it off...for now...because these projects are much more appealing to me than a black sweater project in the middle of summer:

Bella Dia's Sweet Heart Pattern

Attic 24's Summer Garden Squares

Rose Hip's Flower-Square Pillow Pattern

You Go Girl's Edge-Crocheted Pillowcase Tutorial

Tasty Crochet: Crochet Food Patterns--I recently checked this book out from the library, and it has a ton of fun food patterns!

Aren't those fun? I have had those links bookmarked for so long! I am still going to attempt the sweater, since I love my husband, so we'll see how it goes!

Yep, that would be a $90 sweater, but a very good Christmas present! Let us know how it goes! I am crocheting a long blanket that only takes chains of double stitches. It takes me an hour to do one strand. It will take me years to finish! Oh, well! I love the heart and food crocheted items!

I can't even imagine crocheting something that big. You'd better get an award for that one.
