human/house/harvey crochet itemsI’ve always had a soft spot for all things crochet. My grandmother (Nonna Flora) is a remarkable crocheter, and from a young age, she instilled in me a deep appreciation for the craft. From table runners to Easter vests, I have had the luxury of living a crocheted life. And if I were to add to my crochet collection, here are several items I would pick up for myself, my home and my Mr. Harvey. — Stephanie

HUMAN — I admit these booties aren’t for everyone. But I think they are the perfect blend of Little House on the Prairie and city chic. I especially love those thin leather laces.

HOUSE — I’ve been looking for a fun pop of color to add to my winter white bedding, and I think these chevron crochet pillows would be perfect.

HARVEY — These Mungo & Maud crochet toys are absolutely adorable, and with the inserted squeaker, they are sure to occupy my Mr. Harvey for hours. He can never deny a good squeak!

  1. I do love crochet…and I’m sorry I didn’t do any this summer since it’s such a “Man, is it hot! summer-friendly hobby. That said, crochet works just fine with some of the cute, wool yarns for fall.

  2. Crochet just seems to make everything look and feel comfier! Im a fan :)

    Well, how about me? I love crochet as much as I love being mentioned on this post in this amazing blog that is Design Sponge.
    I will be happy dancing to the rest of the week :)

    Thank you, Stephanie!
