crochet motifs

Earth tones seem to become more obvious when autumn nudges summer to an end. In fact, while grocery shopping today, I noticed on the end aisle a display that involved those deep autumn tones. And honestly, I don't even remember what the product was -- but I do remember those rich colors.

And it set a smile on my face.

So when I got home, I found one of most favorite crochet books:

....and set about crocheting motifs.

This is motif #107 in Edie Eckman's book

And motif #2


I used a G hook and the yarn is just scraps from my stash. I have yet to know what these will become. But just sitting and seeing what comes from my hook can easily get the design juices flowing. And man, oh, man! Edie has the most delightful motifs to choose from --- goodness! you'd be hard pressed not to be inspired by her book.

Ok, now I want to learn to crochet so badly. There is a crispness in the air here...can't wait for fall and all those rich colors.

I also love the color combination. I think brown is just a color that looks good with anything! I'll have to check out that book!

Wow they are great, you are very talented, how long did it take you to make those motifs?, beside the book, did you learn with some other source?

i love motif crocheting but i think the the most difficult part is how to hide finishing yarn in a motif :S
