I’m an accomplished craft designer and author of hundreds of articles and reviews on the topic of crocheting and other crafts. In my everyday work, I search out and present novel approaches to classic patterns and techniques to encourage you to try something new. I’m delighted that so many of you read my posts and that I can contribute to making our crochet society bigger and more popular. I’m interested in crafts and interior design and love traveling and sitting next to a campfire. I live with my husband and three kids in the Rockies.

In the spirit of combining hobbies…

While we may have combined crochet and reading, there are other hobbies that we engage in. So, let’s give them some crochet love, in this case let’s crochet for the love of food. After all, so many of us are demons with a hook and yarn, but also whip up a storm in the kitchen. Therefore here are some food-themed crochet projects to put the two together. Indeed, they are so scrumptious that you will want to gobble them up! Of course, they are so wonderful, also because of their versatility as toys, decorations or knickknacks. However, their real value is as play-time sets for the kids to enjoy. After all, who wouldn’t want to encourage their sprogs to eat up their dinner and lunch?

    Love this idea!!! My daughter has taught 3rd grade for 7 years now and in the fall she’s moving to Kindergarten. I’m making one of these for her class. Her favorite book when she was little was the Hungry Hungry Caterpillar.
