Knitting & Crochet

I am a self admitted crochet and knitting dabbler. I have various projects at different stages of completion in at least four places in our house. Some have been taken apart so many times I am not even sure if the yarn is still good! But I do admire others crocheted pieces like this one
from Anthropologie...

and this one from the Sundance catalog...

So you can see I was just tickled when I found these vintage hand crocheted aprons! They are in the Etsy store today - be sure to check them out.

If you are like me and love to dabble in this world be sure to check out (if you haven't) this place, the Purl Bee

I am working on this scarf pattern from Purl right now and Kirk says I will be done most likely in 2011. I think it's a little too advanced for me, but I am determined to power on.

And this website has been invaluable to me - it was a link from my friend Lynne. KnittingHelp has great videos that are very easy to follow.

My crochet project has been this on going ripple throw. Inspired by this gal - and check out this group at flickr called Vintage Striped Blanket. I hope to be done with this before Christmas but have it as a summer throw on our bed.

Enjoy life!
