crochet? i guess.
i’ve never considered myself a crocheter. or, for that matter, someone who was into making afghans. i know you can create beautiful things with crochet, and there are some great afghans out there, but i sort of view crocheted afghans as the lowest common denominator of the fiber arts world. hold on crocheters, what i mean is that they’re like our equivalent of comfort food. they may not be good, complex, interesting, or even healthy, but everyone’s family has their own special version. i think the best way to continue this analogy is to talk about macaroni and cheese. as a recently-converted ex-vegan, i can’t get enough of the stuff. i’ve found i have the same needs for comfort food in my crafting, too.
the good-old-kraft-macaroni-and-cheese version, spotted recently at my great uncle’s:
these i’m working on now, i’d say, are a little more “grown-up” in taste. but still the same basic concept!
crocheted in gradiated blue shades of malabrigo (from the center: vaa, verdeazul, azul profundo, buscando azul, indigo, stone blue) with dividers in sunset. i have four more colorways (continental blue, bobby blue, bijou blue, and tuscan sky) left to go on this one.
phew. expect some knitting WIP pictures soon!
