hooked on crochet

From a little girl I have always been very creative; from drawing to poetry and even some painting. Now that I am older I guess I have ignited the flame of my creativity once again but now through crochet.

If you have been reading my blog for a while you know that I totally love to make "Amigurumi", which is mainly crochet animals or objects. Well, lately it's been on my mind that perhaps I should expand my talent and try to make something different, something I could wear!

Although I have to say I am very hesitant about venturing into the apparel part of crochet and it's mainly because I have always consider that crochet clothing is for "old people" but I really don't know where I got that idea.

What do you think?

Anyway, with the huge vast of information that nowadays we have available at our fingertips through the internet, I have been browsing for some ideas of what could be my very first and maybe only piece of crochet clothing.

Here are some example of what I like, but most importantly that I think if I make, I could actually wear!

Well, that's all I have found for now.

I could really use opinions on which one you like?

I kinda like the last one but perhaps without the long sleeves? And I also like the little wrap skirt to use over my swimsuit but definitely in some nice summer colors instead!

Happy Thursday!!! : )

Yes definitely - Go ahead!! Knitting used to be "oldfashioned" for some decades, but is now super modern again, and it looks like it´s the same with crochet. I love those pictures you post, and I would preferre (for myself)the following numbers (from above): 1,2,3 and 5. But your style might be very different, so go ahead with the one you like the best, and I look forward to seing the result of you wearing it on a picutre! :-) And lucky you, that you have such talent, I knit a scarf once in 10 years, and then it takes a lot of motivation for me to start knitting another one, although I like the proces of knitting...sigh. You go girl! ;-))
