We're off to a fantastic start in 2009, with some amazing crochet projects posted by our members.*

We started off the New Year with a very timely (hah!) project from wibit- a seasonal Cuckoo Clock!



PerachYafeh's beautiful-and-functional Latte Pincushion Ring was an inspiration use of mixed media in crochet:



Continuing on in the functional-and-cool theme, sprocketfish came up with a brilliant interpretation of the Tardis from Dr. Who:



Sunnychoppers is helping to refute the stereotype that there's nothing new you can do with granny squares - and check out the awesome lining job on this Granny Purse with Owl Lining (she also gets a gold star for sharing a pattern!):



Kitten Wrangler's Crocheted Tattoo was a huge hit, and is a safe way to help you decide whether to get that chest piece of bluebirds and hearts you've been debating:



New member WooWork has been awing us with his clever designs and whimsical photographs - like his Koi Fish - (and it's always great to see another guy hooker!):



mama24boyz shared a fantastic tapestry afghan that's practically photo-realistic, based on a portrait of her grandparents:



You don't even have to be a Twilight fan to love AprilDraven's amigurimi Edward Cullen (complete with glittery "skin" and fantastic eyes):



binchen showed us that you don't need yarn OR hooks to crochet, with this incredible, jaw-dropping Eyeball Rug:



Freeform crochet has been regaining popularity, and cathiphop's Circle Blanket of Insanity is a fantastic example:




Thanks to all our fabulous hookers for sharing their work - you're all a terrific inspiration!



*These are chosen via a combination of "This Rocks!" hits, comments, originality of the project, and detail and information in the posts, with the effort to present as wide a range of project types and styles as possible. Preference is given to posts shared in the Craftster spirit (not for sale, helpfulness, information shared, etc.).
