Crochet Aspirations

lionbrandchenille-2.jpgI am still working on my Halloween creations, I’ve started three projects now. Perhaps I shall stop beginning new creations and complete these three this weekend. Maybe. But at the same time I am crocheting a new dog. He’s turquoise and navy blue. Another autumnal beast to be. I might complete him as well. Then I’ll have a big photo shoot party.

So while crocheting my mind wanders and I start imagining all kinds of new thing I’ll make. I purchased a bunch of yarn that is speaking loudly to me and I almost have to hide the yarn so that I will concentrate on the incomplete projects piling up. I found the yarn on-line, where else? Smiley’s Yarn is where I scored the latest bunch of temptations. Their website has annoying flashing things but I just move down the page away from their blinking. They have great prices but you must purchase $40 minimum and the shipping is UPS $12.95 no matter what. But the yarns are really low priced so you can get a huge 70798867_f3105ec36d_m.jpgamount of yarn for the $40. Right now they have a sale on Lion’s Brand Chenille. A selection of dark jewel tones for $.99 each. That’s a steal. Sorry to sound like an ad, but if you’re in the market for yarn, check these guys if you haven’t already.

So while surfing the web in search of something that strikes my fancy, I ran into the most incredibly gorgeous crochet work from an artist in Estonia, Marianne Seiman. Oh what fabulous crochet! I can only dream that I will be able to create 307019228_23f4624b59_m.jpgsomething as beautiful as her pieces. I know I’ve referred to Crochet Insider before and they have an interview with Marianne marianne_s_skirt.jpghere. Someday I’ll progress to creating work this incredible. My crochet aspirations…
