Posted January 15, 2009

If you're into crochet, but looking for some inspiration -- how about this?  It's a crochet coral reef.

Now, that's a conversation-starter.

    I thought the same thing...military personnel learning crochet. It's certainly good for stress relief.

    Yah, I was fooled by the title.....thought the Marines had taken up chochet!

    Awesome job. That was so amazing to see. But like AuntySocial, I was expecting to see a man busy with hook and yarn in hand.

    That's cool! There are free patterns for similar corals on Lion Brand yarns website. Also, check out there for hyperbolic equations in crochet, it is wild! I can't remember the mathematician's name, but I seem to think she came from Lithuania to the States.

    Shouldn't there also be a velvet Elvis showcased on the walls above the crochet art?

    From the title of your entry, I was expecting to see some big burly Marine getting busy with a crochet hook and some yarn. Cool pics.
