Crochet Art

Crochet is one of the things I was taught in elementary school and since I can see the project grow with each stitch, I always enjoyed doing it.

I never was a great fan of making a doily, but valances and animals created with crochet around bottles have been some of the product coming out of my hands.

Those projects are nothing compared to all the different creations I came across on the Internet. Some people have the gift to turn a string of yarn in to something totally amazing, as you can see in all the examples and these are just the tip of the iceberg.

One of my aunts used to crochet little Christmas ornaments and in order for them to be strong, sturdy, and keep their form, she dipped them in sugar water after which she would let them dry thoroughly in the desired shape.

It is one of the applications for crochet and there are many more; jewelry, stuffed animals, and I have even seen entire portraits made out of those simple stiches.

It is not difficult to learn and doesn't cost an arm and a leg either. it does require lifting a few fingers. Grin.
