Sand dollars, done right!

Check out this sweet crocheted sand dollar by Jessica Polk. You can find it on The Curiosity Shoppe.

Super neat, huh? Maybe I should try my hand at crocheting again. I wasn't very successful with my last attempt.
But I keep thinking about what Lady Catherine de Bourgh said in Pride and Prejudice:
"If I had ever learned, I should have been a true proficient." 

Well, until I become a true proficient with the art of crochet, I'll settle for this knitted version I found on Ravelry. I present the Keyhole Sand Dollar by Maryann Walsh. The pattern is available to download free here.

I imagine knitting several sand dollars and sewing them onto a throw pillow, or using them for coasters, or little appliques for a knitted hat. Oh, I have some ideas all right.
