A big piece that is going in my black and white project. It was a scarf, then a shawl, now I’m thinking vest. I love that freeform doesn’t require you to truly commit until your get ready to join everything together. Never dreamed I’d have commitment issues with fiber!
I’m really proud of this. The bullions are Malabrigo Lace which worked easily–as easy as bullions can go. The last one had 14 wraps. I have been practicing. Prudence promised that it was all a matter of the right yarn and practice.
Not a great photo, but you get the idea. These rosy flowers may get into the black and white project just for a little color relief. Rescued this yarn from the sale bin at Threads and More in Sherwood, Queensland, Australia. I love a shop with a $5.00 sale bin. Actually, I think I only paid $3.00 for this.
I just read in one of the books I’m perusing from the Charlotte library that garter st is particuliarly favored in freeform.
To see some really interesting work, check out these ravelry folks:
Antonina, from Austria
Prudence Mapstone, whose talent humbles me
Jenny Dowd, another Australian professional whose book I love
FridaKahlo You must check this out. She is the most delightful, over the top, my-generation woman. She creates wild things, but definitely has the personality to wear them. Just reading the titles of her work is fun. I’m still laughing and admiring her daring and skill.
