In today’s world of crochet, crocheters seem to follow one of two impulses: one is to try to prove that crochet is as good as knitting; the second is to embrace crochet in all it’s granny square goodness and glory.
I fall into the second camp because I know that just as there are some things that are better when knitted, there are just as many things that are better when crocheted, and I’d like to take a look at one that I stumbled across this week.
The crochet project I came across this week that caught my attention and nearly made me drop the project I am currently trying to finish in order to make the new one I had found is this:
This project caught the eye and esprit of my inner 9-year-old, and she is still peeved I did not drop everything to make her one. How, she wants to know, is she supposed to eat lunch without one?
According to wikipedia, Bento “is a single-portion takeout or home-packed meal common in Japanese cuisine.”
Based on the pictures that accompany the article, I would describe it as food arranged so prettily, one would be hard-pressed to stop admiring it long enough to eat it; however, that doesn’t stop me from wanting a Happy Bento Lunch Caddy of my very own.
