Hookalicious Monkeys!

I love, and I mean I lovvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvve monkeys. These sock monkey crocheted toddler mitts are AWESOME!

Created by CLF Member Debz for her etsy store these are too wonderful for words! These would make FABULOUS christmas presents…heck they’d be the perfect ANYTIME present! Because I love these so much I am awarding them the Hookalicious Award for outstanding croheted wonderfullness…and yes, wonderfullness is a word cause I say so!

Minuet a beautiful summer project!

CLF Member Vashtirama (aka Vashti Braha) does it again with this gorgeous design! Now, granted there’s no pattern yet, because as per her ravelry.com page, Vashti  was experimenting and fell in love with the stitch pattern. The resulting garment is GORGEOUS. I can’t wait to see what else happens from this “experiement”!

She offers us several views of said garment

                                                                   

I think this is just beautiful and inventive!  I could see this piece working out gorgeously in a linen (I see you weren’t happy with the yarn you used for this project Vashti, oh yes I did indeed read your project notes, linen might work out great though!)

Vashti I duly award thee my Hookalicious award for beautiful and inventive crochet! Great summer inspiration!

Holiday Crochet Gifting ideas:Purple Dream Freeform Scarf Cowl

As I surfed through the CLF projects page on Ravelry.com I found this gorgeous free form scarf.

One of the things I adore about free form crochet is being able to play with texture and color, and your imagination!

How wonderful to be able to create beautiful flowers to adorn family and friends that have a certain je ne sais quois!

CLF member Ethnicdesign created this gorgeous scarf which is for sale on Etsy.

Stay tuned to this blog for more holiday crochet gifting ideas ;)!

This afghan totally rocks! I am a huge fan of simple, clean lines. Black and white can do some of the most wonderful things in design, and this blanket proves it!

CLF Member carro, made this lovely afghan for the home out of Alpaca from Webs. I cannot find the words to express how delighted I was visually the moment the photo caught my attention! Carro designed this lovely piece after catching a glimpse of a similar thow in a movie.

This is a great testament to simplicity exuding excellence!

Carro congratulations you are duly awarded the Hookalicious Award for orochet excellence in design!

Summery, and hookalicious!

I love making soap savers, and they are one of those satisfyingly quick, useful, and welcome projects in the heat of summer!

Congrats to CLF Member dbknfivec (Kathy North) for earning a Hookalicious Award! Why? For a soap saver? Because, I am in love with the design, and making something useful AND pretty.

I get requests for these puppies from family, and friends at birthdays and holidays. In fact, I recently crocheted up a quickie for my son’s 13th birthday, because the night before he asked sheepishly if I could crochet him a birthday present. Sure, it was 11pm, sure I was tired, but when your almost teenage son requests a crocheted present? And he loved his very masculine version of a soap saver.

So, Kathy, YOU WIN! Because I am biased, and love these kinds of projects! And that photo is lovely!

If you have never made soap savers, check out Kathy’s pattern for this very wonderful award winning bag!
