Crochet

I've been inspired to crochet again after finding a couple of books featuring some fun and colorful projects.  This one arrived all the way from Japan.  Forget that I can't read Japanese, it's worth all the beautiful pictures.  The instructions do include diagrams that I might be able to figure out.
 
The photo of the sweater above is from an Anthropologie catalogue. I Love Anthropologie.
 My Great Aunt taught me to crochet years ago but I still consider myself a beginner.  Here are a couple of recent projects.

I also have lots of Japanese books 'just to look at the pictures'' becvause i can't read a word of it either! Some of them I bought in SF and I am so happy you found me through that blog. I had such a fantastic time there, i still get goose bumps!

Thanks so much for commenting on my blog. I've been browsing through yours for the last 15-20 minutes, and I just love it. Your paintings are gorgeous, and I'm enjoying the photos of your garden. I'll be back again!
