{creative spaces} more and more crochet

So, lately I've been slightly (ok - a lot) addicted to making these little crochet covered stones. They're just too much fun!

I keep giving them away (and swapping for them), so don't have many left at home. The giving away is so satisfying.

I don't use a pattern for them, each one is different depending on the rock shape and how I'm feeling at the time. If I used a pattern, then I'd have to count stitches........ but if you're interested in making your own, let me know and I can try to write a pattern up for you. (or you can search online and find some as well).

A big thanks must go to my lovely friend Helle who reminded me how to crochet, and showed me how to hold my yarn correctly. Helle makes the most beautiful amazing intricate fascinating crochet pieces. She's a big inspiration around our town.

Are you on Instagram? I am, follow me there if you want (search Petalplum) - there's sure to be more images of my crochet work and also shots of the mountains around the valley. Those mountains and the clouds are my everyday creative space.

joining in creative spaces over at the new home today.
