Crochet food


Here's a little confession: I can actually crochet. It's been many years since I could actually be bothered to do any, but it's something I learned and have knocked out the odd pair of baby's booties and the like over the years.

For reasons I will never understand, knitting seems to have been enjoying a near cult following lately and, for reasons that equally evade explanation, I find knitting winds me up and annoys instead of relaxing, so I avoid it.

All that is by the way, because I actually came across these little delicacies when I was searching for real food at Flickr. Terribly cute to peruse and if you like those, you'll also like these Gourmet Crochet & Knitting images.

I don't think I shall be making any, any time soon, although the thought did cross my mind that crochet chicken drumsticks, stuffed with catnip, might make good cat toys. They probably wouldn't mind the dim-sum or pizza, either! :)

At the same time, I read about Hyperbolic Crochet Jam and the The Hyperbolic Crochet Coral Reef, "...a large-scale constantly mutating series of hand-made crochets that replicate the forms of natural coral ..." Now that's fascinating.
