[Inspired by] Knit & Crochet

It wasn't long ago that I thought knitting and crocheting were for "lil' ol' ladies". That's definitely not the case anymore-- I really like it when trends from the past become hip again. When knitting became "cool" a few years back, I didn't follow the trend. But now... I sure wish I had learned how!  I probably wouldn't knit sweaters of scarves, but a pillow cover? or a cover for a wood stool? I'd do that in a heartbeat. Here are a few knitted and crocheted creations that have recently caught my eye--

So what do you think?  Yarn creations in decor and fashion... yay or nay?
