I know, I know I’ve been lax again in updating… but I have an excuse!! A good one I promise!! I even have a picture!
I’ve mentioned in my videos that I’ve been working on the hyperbolic reef at my local art gallery with a bunch of other crochet and knitters and there are some really amazing and talented ppl!! We’ve got a lot of sitting pieces but we need a few hanging pieces so I’ve been trying to come up with something… which has been…. lets say fun 🙂
I’m currently working on 2 pieces at the moment both with mixed media – one is with cassette tapes and yarn and the other is with plarn (plastic bag yarn) cassette tapes and possibly yarn. the other is shaped like a really odd shaped witch or wizards hat bent, leaning to the side and 60cm (2ft) tall.
And another piece that is worked in 3 pieces. The main stem is a cardboard roll wrapped with the fury yarn (can’t remember name or brand of yarn).
I’m currently working on a hanging piece that kind of reminds me of a jelly fish and a sort of odd shaped hollow tube (kind of like a hollow log). I don’t have any photos of those at the moment but will take some shortly when I’ve got some more structure to them and more of an idea of what I want them to look like.
Since I meant to post this 2 days ago but got side tracked by trying to finish my coral thingy I’ll finish the post here even though it feels only half finished… I can always add updates soon.
I have found some really awesome free patterns that I am able to share with you – they are in the public domain, that will be another video and post though, so I will give you the link then. The patterns are in US terms though so I will have a link to the pdf of translated to AUST/UK/EU terms. When I put up the patterns – I’ve been looking at making some Snoods – really cool vintage hair holder upperas, sort of a beanie/hairnet but cooler and prettier. It’s the end of summer where I am so I’m surprised I haven’t made any before now.
Check them out on google for a better look and idea. 🙂
I’m going to leave my post half finished here and sing off with my usual –
Up, up and CROCHET!!
Stay well everyone 🙂
