This is a really cool pattern for crocheted socks:

Yes, it is Earth Day this week. Although some media outlets are calling Earth Day a "national holiday", it's not really - the post office and the banks remain open. But I never need a holiday to post a link to Noreen Crone-Findlay's site for some cool crochet. Here's a crocheted market bag as M's Crone-
Findlay's contribution to Earth Day

Do you ever dream about crochet? Sometimes I think about a pattern before I go to sleep, it seems to help me fall asleep faster. But this woman dreams of crochet and creates hats with her dreams:

Not a pattern site, but something totally different in the land of crochet. Here's a crochet crab and a frog (among other animals) by Portuguese artist Joana Vasconcelos.

This pattern combines 2 of my favorite things - crochet and buttons.

This is a character from the "Dr Who" tv seiries:

Did you ever have a Blythe doll? I was a little too old for dolls when she became popular. But my younger sisters had one. They would have asked me to make this hat for their doll.

Many, many years ago, I was married to a guitarist. The band would usually practice at my house. I wish there was something like this pattern then.

Looking for a springtime centerpiece - check out Berroco's pattern for pussywillow and hydrangea.


as usual, no payoffs.
