Over on Pinterest I have curated boards by color. I was just looking through those and finding them so inspiring again. In particular, I was enjoying all the crochet in the color green.
Those of you who have children (or are in college yourselves) are in that back-to-school time. Here are some ideas for the many different types of things to crochet at this time of year!
I recently came across a new crochet cactus pattern by Frank&Olive and had to share.
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. One unique idea that many people have started adopting recently is to use embroidery hoops to frame pieces of crochet and hang them as art. It’s a terrific display idea and one I just had to share more of!
Elevate simple crochet work into art by framing it for display in your home. This is an exercise in honoring the importance of your own creative self-expression – even if “all” you are making is granny squares!
I was going through crochet things on Vimeo recently (as you may have noticed from a few of the recent video-focused posts) and I spotted the Global Thinking Pod, an interactive art project by artist Viviane Le Courtois that combines crochet and community.
