Back to Work!!

Well, it’s a month since I last posted and still no leaf sketches….but I’ve been on a fantastic holiday in Malaysia with Prudence Mapstone and my interest in freeform crochet as a medium for 3D patterning is rekindled.

I’m intent right now  on seeing how far I can go with very fine threads and working them into a piece in shade order.

No idea yet what the final piece will look like but that’s no affecting my enjoyment of these gorgeous yarns.  Most are commercially sourced and natural fibres, but a few are my own hand-dyed cottons. See thumbnail.

Here’s a taster of the way the darker shades are being incorporated:

Perle 8 balls of white cotton painted with mixtures of navy and yellow.  The one on the right is  a heavy dilution of the dye in the bath
