I just completed a roundup of free crochet sock patterns over on About.com (along with a few book recommendations for people who want to crochet socks). I knew that I had a bunch of different images of crochet socks here in the Crochet Concupiscence archives so I thought I’d go ahead and round those up as well, offering some crafty inspiration to people interested in this area of the craft.
Yesterday I shared an exercise for framing your crochet to create art, as a practice in honoring your own creative self-expression. There are so many different ways to display your crochet, including many different types of frames that you can use.

It’s a terrific display idea and one I just had to share more of!

I am enjoying a lot of inspiring ideas from the book Make Your Own Ideabook with Arne & Carlos: Create Handmade Art Journals and Bound Keepsakes to Store Inspiration and Memories. The book isn’t really about crochet, although it mentions crochet and knitting, but it can be a great tool for people who crochet and just looking through is giving me even more ideas about my own crochet art journalling.
