One of my New Year ambitions was to have a go at more freeform crochet.
I recently came across a link to Tamsyn Gregory's funky scrumbled brooch tutorial and wow was I hooked!
I love the zingy vibrant colours and oodles of textures in Tamsyn's blog and her tutorial was really easy to follow.
Here is my first scrumbled brooch
I am soooooo pleased with it, I love it..it sits where I can see its zingy colours..eventually I will wear it, but for now I just like to gaze at it!
It was such a pleasure to make too - just hooking anywhere, anytime, any colour, any width....I got lost in the colourful meandering!
When finished I had a lap full of various hooks and woolly ends - the whole area was surrounded by mounds of coloured strands, long strings and short ends! So engrossing!
Before tidying away another was flowing:
This became the centre of a flower.
There will be many more scrumblings - lots of ideas were sparked!
At 3g and 5g they are a tiny stash buster - but so much fun to go with the flow!
Stash buster totals for April:
Granny Pocket Hearts 155g
Spring Birds 32g + 3g
Happy Birdy Bird 9g
Lily Squares 55g
2013 total so far: 663+262 = 925g
