Dada's place Inspiration is everywhere! And inspiration can be anything. It can be a beautiful object, a favorite song, a good book, an interesting poem, time of the day, a pleasant scent, a movie, a conversation with a good friend... anything. Even a pair of tennis shoes. Since I began to crochet, I have been inspired mostly by other people's beautiful work. But, the other day, we received the tennis shoes we had ordered online a few days earlier, for our son. Wool Eater Instructions Crocheted Wool-Eater Blanket © 2007 Sarah London. All rights reserved.

Joining Granny Squares When I join my Granny Squares together I always choose to crochet them rather than stitch them. Its just the way that appeals to me, although many of my hooking buddies prefer the stitching method. I guess it's a personal preference. And as many of you have asked me to supply this information, here you have it :: my take on joining the Grannies, in usual Attic24 style with waaaaay too many pictures I suspect. wonderfuldiy There’s really no such thing as having too many baby blankets — something every parent would probably agree on! This is why one of the most amazing gifts any well-wisher can offer a baby or toddler of any age is a stunningly beautiful handmade baby blanket – a genuine one-of-a-kind never to be repeated. But while there are thousands of different ways a baby blanket can be crocheted … well, let’s just say we think we’ve found the pick of the bunch! What you’re looking at here is a wholly unique 6 petal puff flower baby blanket, which is less a useful accessory and more a work of art in its own right! Any parent in the world would be blown-away to receive one of these as a gift and any baby would be lucky to have one to snuggle up with. And when you add into the mix the fact that it’s homemade by your very hands, it’s a genuinely spectacular craft project to dedicate some time to.

CROCHETED ROPE BASKET I love having little baskets and containers around to keep things tidy, and have really been wanting to experiment with different materials to crochet with recently. This little basket is not only a perfect way to practice crocheting with rope, but also to hold little odds and ends! For this project I used a Size P crochet hook and one package of clothesline rope. This rope is nylon, but it would be fun to use cotton rope and experiment with dyeing it different colors! How cute would it be to dye the rope a few different colors and make a giant granny square rug? Now, lets get to the project pictured above...
