Lena Maikon calls on the unique qualities of crochet and today's diverse yarns of natural and organic fibers to create and recycle innovative accessories for the home. There are 23 projects for rooms all through the house. They include a spiraling place mat, rounds-in-a-rectangle table runner, earthy oven mitt, sunny apron, airy wall hanging, comfy throw, patterned rug, pod-shaped lampshades, cushion covers, gourd-shaped storage baskets, a flexible vase, flowers, slippers, and a sophisticated toy sheep. These non-traditional accessories are a pleasure to make, lovely to touch, and just right for decorating a modern home.
