I found some longstitch tapestry yarn in my craft supplies earlier today and they got me to thinking...what could I make with them?
I had a little look at what I'd made and thought it kinda looked like a beach scene, with water, rocks, sand...I thought I'd take it a step further. What if you could take a photo and turn it into a crochet pattern? I looked online, because, obviously, I'm not the first person to come up with this idea. And so I chanced upon this site - http://pic2pat.com/
Upload your image (for example, this gorgeous photo of blossom I took down at the park today), and it will give you a grid to crochet, plus all the coloured yarns you need to buy:
I haven't started yet, I'm just messing around at the moment, but it looks like a lot of fun. What do you think? Worth a go? Let me know!
