Crochet Stones

Back in the days before I had a blog and was just an avid reader, I stumbled upon Resurection Fern one day. I do not remember exactly how but I do remember being amazed at the creativity and ingenuity of Margaret Oomen. To this day it is still a blog I love to look at.

One thing I have especially loved are her numerous crochet stones, such as this one, and so finally I decided to try my hand at making some too.
Some other stones to inspire: on Resurection Fern here, this one on Bella Dia, and this bowl full on Lovely World. Also there is a great tutorial up on Purl Bee written by Margaret Oomen, if you care to try one yourself.
Mine were done freestyle, using some of my Noro Kirameki yarn meant for this project.
I had a great time making these. They are so easy and relaxing.
I was surprised how quickly I was done too.

Someday I'd like to have a whole bowl full of these little beauties.
My how they make me smile!

Hello! Your crochet-covered stones are so pretty. The yarn seems to glow. Don't worry, you will fill a bowl in no time. Once I started making them, I couldn't stop. I have begun to give them away to family and friends. Thanks for linking to me. Take care.
