Making Granny Proud

Though not 'brand new', the return of the humble arts of knitting and crochet are making a huge come back in home wares, decor and interior styling Wouldn't our Grannies would be proud of what is being produced?!
I read over at Decor8 that “crochet is one of the few crafts that cannot be replicated by machine." I love the thought of that! One, that no two designs can ever be exactly the same, and two as Holly says, again over at Decor8, that crochet is untouchable...it's the ultimate handmade product!
I'll be the first to say that I never thought I would see the day when I would love crochet, and that is being inspired by it, but that day has arrived. Did you think it would ever be back?
I am especially loving the white bed covers! I am also loving the textures (and overall coziness) of the throws with their oversized cable knit style features. I so want one for the winter that is fast approaching here in Australia.
