Ever since my adventures in scrumbling I have been itching to dive into some more.
Over the summer, knowing that the theme for National Poetry Day and International Day of Felt was water, some ideas began to spring and flow!
However they were blocked a little, by time and organisational procedures.
When creating I take over all available space...and in order to use a variety of colours and textures a large area is needed, along with the time to sort through several bags of tiny bits and pieces.
Eventually I piled high my largest tray with the necessary equipment and took my hook for a relaxing walk!
The first pieces were bluey tones:
The backs are almost as fun as the fronts!
The rounder ones have a more three dimensional quality..
As I'm not sure of the technical terminology I'm naming these taking-my-hook-for-a-leisurely-stroll pieces as random-meanderings - or randomeanderings for short!
I use all sorts of yarns, wools and threads and many hook sizes -
and LoVe the freedom to go with the flow.
Having grown up in the North East of England, crossing the majestic River Tees many times I remember the distinctive colour of this and many other local rivers.
For birthday gifts for two fellow former north eastern residents I used more browny tones:
Both these started as circles, but changed shape significantly due to the pulling and pushing of the added yarns and stitches.
Although nearly finished, the second needed something else, and I began hooking round the edge in a random fashion. It was only when I spun it round that I realised it resembled an autumn leaf.
The two rusty river autumnal coloured pieces were made from this tray of goodies.
This stream of watery randomeanderings
a small drop in my ocean of stash!
