New additions to my crochet bucket list

In the last few weeks as I have concentrated my efforts on finishing my project for the 2010 North Carolina State Fair, I came across many wonderful projects that I had no time to fully consider. Instead, I simply hit the “to queue” button at my ravelry account, and through the magic of software coding, the project became an item on a list of things I want to do. Now that I have a few moments to catch my breath, I can look over the new additions to my crochet bucket list.

87. Blooming Clutch

This delightful confection was designed by Candi Jensen and includes many of the things I love best about crochet, chief among them, it clearly is crocheted. In addition to a lack of ambiguity about the nature of the craft, it is highly textured and very playful. This purse would be practically impossible to lose and is completely infused with joy.

86. Fruit Tawashi

This fruit tawashi pattern is published by Pierrot Yarn Patterns and, after a free registration at the website, is available as a free download in either Japanese or English.

While I will probably make this in less subdued colors when I make mine, I love the sculptural and textural elements of this design, and it will no doubt be a fun addition to my kitchen.

In the meantime, I am going to try to get a couple of squares done in an effort to finish my Go-go granny square dress before Halloween.

  1. Several items on my bucket list are craft related. If I had a crochet only bucket list I’d spend more time adding to it than stitching! I love the purse idea. I’ll have to put that in my ravelry queue as well.

  2. Did you find a translation for fruit tawashi pattern? I only found Japanese. It’s a very interesting looking pattern.

    1. I thought it was wonderful on a number of levels. It embodies just about everything that makes crochet crochet.

  3. I have had the Bloomin’ Clutch in my queue for a while. Thanks for bringing it up. I’m working on stash busting and this may be a perfect project. 🙂 Thanks also for the new pattern source. I love collecting patterns! Cheers!
