For your Oooohing and Ahhhhing Pleasure

Today I just want to show you some beautiful crochet. I am so amazed at the talent people have, and often in their ability to complete items that clearly took months or even years to make. It's really fun to peruse some of these. First up we have Miroslava Gorokhovich:

W-O-W. Check out all of Miroslava's photostream here on Flickr. It's just astounding!

Here's a gorgeous afghan that really has me thinking spring!

And thinking of spring makes me think of birds too, like this little beauty here!

I have to send you over to Flickr to see this next one but it's worth the trip--this is such a clever idea and it looks amazing.

Another awesome afghan, this one a sampler of many different crochet cable stitches. Every square is so well done, it's really terrific.

For all you Mario fans, this incredibly clever afghan was designed and executed AMAZINGLY by Gege of Gege Crochet:

She blogged the whole process of making the blanket, you can read it here.

And last is a particular favorite of mine, crocheted afghans that look like quilts. The patience and fortitude required to make these is HUGE, as they consist of many many many small pieces that all have to be sewn together in the correct pattern. The following are done by Micki, aka thing4string:

Hope you enjoyed this lovely eye candy, and have a fabulous crafty day!
