If ever I loved the internet (or, life-changing revelations)

I have discovered a previously unknown (to me) universe of crocheted wonders. I would have been content with blankets, stuffed toys and the occasional doily or clothing item*, but no, I have been beset with the most (disturbing?) range of crocheted food, animals, and household objects (I don't mean pot holders either). I feel like I have found some missing piece of my imagination on the internet...... (that may be a little too melodramatic, but you get the picture).

I was so excited and overwhelmed that I couldn't think straight.
There is even a whole (craft?) called amigurumi which in part basically includes crocheting a whole bunch of food. The astonishing revelations just kept coming. I have immediate plans for cake and a variety of vegetables.

Here are some of my favourites:

A sushi toilet roll

Cakes that I would be proud to bake, let alone crochet

And of course, don't forget that breakfast is the most important meal of the day.

This has just changed my life, I tell you.

*I forgot to mention tea cosies.

  1. That imagination thing is a great way to put it. So exciting to find a new place for imagination and creation - yay!
