Have you ever had a look through the wonderful stuff on Etsy? For those who don't know, Etsy is an online marketplace for crafty folk to sell their wares.
Boy, there sure are some talented people out there. And I met a lovely lady today called Marsha who lives in the USA. Marsha crocheted the wonderful afghan below and I promptly bought it from her. (Actually my son wants to buy it for me for Mother's day - thanks Broc.)
I absolutely adore the colours and the hexagonal granny squares. It's my first international buy from Etsy and it's Marsha's very first sale. So we were both kinda excited. Let's hope it all goes well.
That's not to say that I've given up on my own plans to learn to crochet - it's just that a little inspiration never hurt anyone.
