LOVE

I love knitting. I love Cary Grant. And this video clip of Cary Grant’s character learning to knit in Mr. Lucky is hilarious. Happy Valentine’s Day!

Beyond the Blanket

It’s been nice to see some coverage of knitting over at Huffington Post recently. One of the articles details things you should be making for your home that aren’t blankets. (Not that there’s anything wrong with blankets!) I also appreciated the quick knitting history link included in the article.

The article reminded me of some crocheted home decor I’ve seen at national retailers lately. All three of these examples feature really nice neutral tones that could go with a lot of different decorating styles. In any case, I enjoyed the inspiration!

It looks like the Kayla Crochet Mirror from Company Kids might actually include some knit swatches, too.

The Lainie Crochet Pillow from Home Decorators Collection combines a rustic element (jute fabric) with elegant crocheted trim.

Pottery Barn’s Crochet Bath Accessories (almost out of stock as of this writing) feature a unique fiber choice.
