Green sproutings!

All over the garden the first signs of spring growth are sprouting!
The green shoots reminded me of the freeform vessel made for my mums birthday in November, that escaped the photo stage.
Mum kindly brought it back to have its picture taken!



The spiral is hooked with three very different yarns, a slender multi-coloured wool, a silky cotton, and the wonderfully woolly Wheeldale Woolcrafts variegated green also seen in the Christmas trees.


The varying thicknesses and finishes produce a naturally occurring knobbly wibbly undulating terrain....


...and lacy cobwebby holes!


Hope you are finding plenty of green shoots in the wintry bumpy earth!

Yes indeed a few bulbs are coming through. Love the way different colours are peeping through the green in your vessel.
