So excited because my cousin is due with twin girls next month. I have been eager to crochet a project again and here is the result of too many X-files reruns and coffee. Both are bug themed and fleece with a crocheted trim. They are modeled off of the Black Hawks blanket I made my niece this past Spring.
This winter (2015) I was also interested in teaching myself crochet. I want to learn a few historically known "women made" type crafts and arts. I am interested in the idea of crocheting, knitting, and sewing and incorporating that into my fine art pieces. Most of my art pieces have a feminine feel to them and I think learning these skills might push or pull my artwork in a new direction. Below is a lacy baby blanket which was my first finished crochet project. I am happy with the way it turned out and the skills I learned.
