Tuesday inspiration

I used to crochet a lot. I would watch lots of episodes of the original 90210 and try to keep the yarn away from the kittens. One Christmas I gave my sister a gorgeous turquoise cape I made with some sort of intricate lacy shell stitch. But it was totally impractical and not her style. I put so much work into that thing!

Do you like to crochet or knit? I would like to bring fiber arts to the library! I used to own a yellow Minnie Bow headband by Yokoo. Hope it's still trendalicious! I think it would be a cool beginner's project. This pattern looks good.

While looking for some Yokoo-esque patterns, I found this really lovely video of Yokoo. She says we should be creating "a subworld to protect us" from the harsh realities of the real world and being excellent at something creative is her way of doing that. She really makes you want to go for it, doesn't she? Yokoo handmade 1,852 hats and scarves. What have you done?

I've been thinking of picking up the crochet hook again and making some baby hats from a book I found on the library shelves.

And just for fun, here's an amazing downhill biking video.
