When you've mastered the granny square, try crocheting furniture

Dec 12, 2009

Our Christmas tree is up and trimmed, minus a tree topper.  I'm thinking of crocheting a 3-D star for the tree.  Last night, I spent some time searching online for a pattern but couldn't find anything similar to what I'm picturing in my head.  (Think doily bowls but in the shape of a star.)

I did come across some other crochet forms, though, that are quite impressive.

There's some major starching of doilies going on with these projects by designer Marcel Wanders.

I'll gladly take these urchins off somebody's hands.

I love to garden, and these outdoor pot covers would make me love it even more! I've got to get myself a bigger crochet hook!

The lamp is amazing. I would love to have one of those urchins. I've got a list going in my head of all the things I'd like from our home that you featured on your blog.
