If you stalk the knitting boards (or recent posts with images), you may have seen my knitting round up.  Well, this is the crochet version!  These are just pictures of some of my larger projects this year, with links to my blog posts (which always include the original patterns).

If you have any questions, feel free to pm/email me!

I so want to learn to crochet, but there seems to be a problem in my brain for learning it. I'm hoping taking lessons will be the key since I'm unable to teach myself.
all your work is beautiful, but really loving Hubert. he's adorable!

Thank you so much!  (And yeah, Hubert's my favorite too :p  I made the pattern myself, so I'm particularly proud!)

Baygirl69 - I tried learning knitting and crochet from my mother for years, with absolutely no success.  Finally, I bought the Klutz kids books for both and I've been knitting and crocheting ever since (4 years and counting!).  They're a bit expensive ($20-25 each), but their instructions are fantastic and it's a very full kit.  I'm considering getting their quilting book as well ^.^  Good luck!
