Slip Stitch



I had to share this video because I am so utterly inspired by the craft and time that goes into the gorgeous crocheted pieces from Helen Rödel, a Brazilian designer and artisan. I stumbled upon her designs via a knitting and crochet blog I follow (although I personally cannot crochet or knit) - One Sheepish Girl. I watched this video of Ms. Rödel's designs and was immediately struck and absolutely floored by how beautiful her work is.


When we did the cursory introductions to our fellow cohort members at the beginning of my Masters program, the vast majority of my fellow students noted how much they all seemed to like knitting and crochet. I chuckled then at the fulfillment of the Librarian stereotype - but after seeing the amazing things possible with crochet? I have to wonder if I might just pick up a crochet hook myself and see if I can learn a thing or two. That is, to hold me over till I can get to Brazil and pick up a piece from the  talented Ms. Rödel.
