Some Serious Crochet Inspiration!

Okay...get ready...I have discoverered some crochet that absolutely makes me drool! While exploring one of the crochet groups on flickr I came across this lady, and let me tell you, I have really been impressed by her!

She goes by the name Elizabeth Cat. What she does with a hook and yarn is amazing. Her colors and patterns are serious eye candy to anyone who crochets. I love her work so much that I asked her permission to share it with my bloggy buddies, and was delighted when she told me she would be thrilled for me to include her in my blog!

Well here goes. I am just going to post a small sampling of her photos with no words...they speak for themselves!
Beautiful! (ok..maybe a couple of words!)
Holy Cow! This is gorgeous!
Granny Goodness!

I am in crochet heaven!

I know you guys have to agree with me on this. Everytime I log onto flickr I check her out just to see if she has added anything new. It's pure crochet inspiration to me. One of the things that I think make crochet almost an art form is that you can make it so unique, so your own, and her work has a definite vibe running through it that is truely something you could pick out amidst many crocheters. As a good knitting buddy of mine would say, "it's yarn porn"...LOL!
I have been busy learning the "magic loop" technique as I work on a pair of yoga socks. I will post some pictures soon. I am enjoying this technique and can see it used for so much more than socks!
For now I will leave you with all this hooky-goodness and hope you love it as much as I do!

Hi there!

I agree with you, I usually follow her work closely. I didn't know she had a blog though. Will have to check that out too.

I LOVE her color selections, and wonder how she gets her ideas.
