Ruby Stripes

A few weeks ago friends of ours celebrated their 40th Wedding Anniversary. 
One of them is a big fan of Bridget Riley, she invited me with her to hear Bridget in conversation during this exhibition.
The stripes in Bridget Riley's work inspired a crochet piece for the couples anniversary card!


Started with two rows of 20 stitches for each red....


 ...some in back loops for texture...





Congratulations to the fantastic couple - and hope they have many more happy years together!

I really love the idea of such thoughtful and personal cards. Time and care spent on a gift makes it so much more precious. I still have a mother's day card that Vicky made me.
