A reason to crochet

As a personal preference, I've always liked the look of knitted stitches better.
I never had a desire to learn to crochet.  Until I saw the work of Magaret Ooman's crocheted stones.  She writes a beautiful blog, resurrection fernBut it was Purl Bee's tutorial that really motivated me.  I spent the last week's spare moments teaching myself and here's the result.....

I found that the tutorial is really just a suggestion.  It works best if you just let yourself,
(and your stone) see what works best.  The hardest part is getting the crochet to fit snug around your stone.  I found it very addictive.  But really, how many crocheted stones does one person need?
