* Japanese crochet patterns (and a knit one too)

Posted on August 9th, 2004 by maitreya. Filed under Crafty Links.

The Japanese have a crafty streak that I really like. I bought a couple of craft books when I visited there last year (not that I’ve made anything from them yet…), and there are lots of good sites on the web. “Good” is defined as lots of pictures accessible by randomly clicking the indecipherable links, or, even better, kind translations.

Otamas: Japanese pattern (click around the site for a gigantic photo gallery) and English translation on the crochet Live Journal community

  • This recipe with white beans is probably my favorite farro salad yet. The creamy beans play a huge role in that, along with the sweet tender leeks and fresh parsley. But it's the chunks of salty, citrusy preserved lemon, a condiment often used in Moroccan cooking, that really takes this salad to the next level.
