a little green

Before all the Christmas crafting madness kicked in, I bought the September/October copy of Crochet Today. There was an article on Margaret Oomen inside and a couple of patterns for her beautiful crochet rock covers. We had a quick trip to the beach last week and I was on the lookout for some smooth rocks to make covers for, I was looking for evenly shaped stones, much harder than I thought to find. They worked up quickly, especially as I had a thicker crochet cotton in my stash and due to my new year's resolution of using up what I have I didn't purchase any new cotton. I think a thinner cotton would look better, but I'm still pleased with these. Now I'm on the lookout for a much larger stone to cover to use as a doorstop.


  1. no no it's perfect. i absolutely love it!

  2. I think the thick cotton looks great and oh yes a giant covered stone would be such a great doorstop. I have got to start buying that mag!

  3. looks fantastic in green
    one of my favorite colors :)
