Having been fascinated by freeform for a while, the other weekend I decided to go with the flow and followed a pattern link that popped up in my Ravelry suggestions.
Co-incidentally, at the same time Sarah over at The Gingerbread Bunny had been free-forming, and following links from her pinterest board I revisited Susan's inspiring hyperbolic freeform pages.
Hours of happy hooking followed - just going round in circles, spirals, in front loops, back loops...
Each sculptural piece has a new look ..
when viewed from a different angle..
The spiralling inspired a cotton/bamboo facecloth
...combined with another: scalloped edged square Sherlock stitch,
and a matching soap for a friend's birthday.
This piece has three lobes and is made from variegated cotton....when shown to Mr RW he realised it resembled some of the fungi blooming in the garden...
couldn't believe the likeness - completely co-incidental...or maybe there had been some thought at a subliminal level!
The two facecloths weighed in at 42g of stashed cotton and bamboo
and the various freeforms amounted to a scumbling of 33g
...so a total of 75g of absolute pleasure!!
Jacqui, my good friend of Living with Ethel fame, has pictures of her inspiring spirals and fabulous freeform lichen on her website. She has a real talent for incorporating interesting textures and re-using materials...amongst many colours, shapes and woolly surprises there's plastic netting linked into the lichen.
I'm looking forward to many more memorable moments spiralling and scrumbling...just going with the flow!
