Dee's Face of Crochet?

 Why would someone want to crochet a face?  My answer: why not?  I've discovered it's quite fun!  No pattern.  Just letting the hook and the yarn work it's magic.

This face is for a future project my local CGOA Chapter has been challenged with.  I haven't officially measured it, but I'm going to guess it's about 2 1/2" long.  As time goes by I'll reveal more information about the project.

I crocheted this face to represent me ... back in my "curly hair" days, when I wore HUGE hoop earrings, wearing (kinda) a baseball cap.  I'm always wearing sunglasses when I'm out & about, so adding those was a must!  LOL  (I'm currently using this image as my avatar on Ravelry.)

I hope to crochet some more faces.  Perhaps of my children too.

If you were to crochet a face, would you try to create one that resembles you, or would you go and create a whole new being?

That's a really cute idea. I'll have to try that challenge at a crochet meeting sometime. Cute face!

I would probably do a face that resembles me, but in the aspect of how I want to be seen.  Make sense?

This is a cool idea!  What does MiniDee think of it?

Love and hugs,

My kids love the idea.  In fact Mini~Dee has gotten in on the action, crocheting up some of her own faces.  Watch for her next blog post as I'm sure she'll want to share a photo of her creations too.
