I used Socks that Rock Mediumweight in the Metamorphosis colorway. I got this at Stitches East last year. I still need to knit the second one - but it may be a while. I seems to be having SSS on my last THREE socks!! I will get around to it eventually though. I do love the colors - even if they may not be the best for this pattern....
But - back to the Crochet - I found this cool site:
It has some free crochet patterns - including crocheted socks! Some of the articles are interesting too. Give it a read!
They also a link to a crocheted yoda and princess leia! How can you beat that!
I finished a square for my Larger than life bag from Interweave crochet.
I am using Tahki Donegal Tweed. I am not yet sure if all the blocks will be the same or not. I may even add a forth color.
I really enjoyed crocheting this and I have learned that reading crochet instructions is hard! Too many sk, sc, and dc's! I prefer the charts - I am a visual learner - so that is no big surprise to me. I always prefer reading knitting charts too rather than reading the directions.
I also really like one of the other patterns in the Spring 07 Interweave Crochet issue (the same one that has the Larger than Life bag.)
I love this beach comber tunic from interweave crochet.
The top is knit and the bottom is crochet. I think it's a great combo - the best of both worlds!!
One more crochet reference - I also purchased this cute pattern from Roxycraft. It's a crocheted turtle!! I love turtles... so I had to get him.
There are lots of other cute patterns on her site too - go check them out!
