A Cornucopia of Crochet

Here in Crochetland, our priorities may be a bit skewed from the rest of the world.

Case in point: I have just gotten around to figuring out what's on the menu for Thanksgiving, but my crochet cornucopia is all set.

Witness the pile of food magazines & somewhat meager list of foods.
And then the fiber goodness: a crocheted turkey, three crocheted owls, a little pile of crocheted leaves, a crochet coaster, and a crocheted trivet.

Here's a closer look at Terrence the Turkey. A little while back, I made up Terrence in peacock colors, and he's kind of made himself at home during Thanksgiving.  He just pops on a red bow tie, of sorts, and he's good to go.

If you want to make your own crocheted turkey for Thanksgiving, you'll find this pattern in our Amigurumi Calendar Projects eBook

 

I love these leaves! They're a great way to use bits of autumnal-hued yarns you may have in your stash, and they add a festive touch without being overwhelming—unless you decide to make a big pile of them!

These leaves have a plethora of potential applications: scattered on the table, used as place cards, or situated as adornments on their original use: a wreath by Linda Permann in Crochet at Home.

 

For my place cards, I'm using the owls from the Owl Bunting by Linda Permann, also in Crochet at Home. The owls have little loops in their ears, perfect for stringing on a name tag and wrapping around a drinking glass.

 

This seals the deal on the usefulness and versatility of Crochet at Home. This coaster is a motif pulled from the Happy Hexagons Throw by Maryse Roudier.

(In these colors, they can do double duty for Christmas. Woohoo!)

 

And the final touch: Jam Fest Trivets. When I get those mashed sweet potatoes cooked up, they'll be hot and this festive trivet will keep the table cool. For a closer look at these trivets, check out the preview page for Interweave Crochet Home, where you'll find a slew of items you want in your home right now. Then, if you can't find this on your newsstand, you can find the Home issue in the store.

 

Ok. I gotta go fetch a turkey that isn't crocheted. 

Happy feasting.
