Crafting to keep insanity at bay.

I've had these river rocks in my stash forever and last year picked up some crochet thread to try my hand at the beautiful crocheted patterns I've seen done on river rocks. Cue to finally a week and a half ago, I decided in a moment of low-but-antsy energy to try to make these. It's all done on the fly, no pattern just making it up as I go....obviously I might need to refer to some patterns now as my skill in variation tops out at about 3 or 4 different patterns haha. But then again, most of these rocks are rather small so it makes much variety a bit difficult.









One will definitely be converted to a necklace pendant, but the others I am abandoning around town for fun. A little spot of unexpected beauty in the most mundane of places  Smiley

I love these. I've been wanting to do this forever and now that you've reminded me how lovely they are, I just may get started.

Ooh, I love crochet covered stones! Yours are so pretty. I love the idea of leaving them around town for someone to find! :-)

Thank you! I have all my supplies set up by the couch so when I'm in between other projects, I can easily pick it up and crochet covers for another one or two stones. At some point I'm going to run out of the river rocks, so who knows what will be covered next.  Smiley

I've been meaning to do this forever. Yours look great! I love the idea of abandoning them. What a great function for them!
