Festive Freeform Fir Forest

Before all the decorations are packed away here are some that winged their way to all corners of the globe!





From the photo below you can see the progression from triangle with recognised stitch
to free-er form!
A larger hook was used to get a more lacey tension...


Experimentations with yarns...
natural sparkle...


 some have cotton threads...


all the yarns are gifts or charity shop gems...



The yarns with varying thickness were fabulous to work with...these are made from one of the cool yarns featured in this find here


 Each is unique as each stitch, or hole, was chosen at random and influenced by the structure of previous stitches or rows....


 Many have sparkly threads too!


I found the whole process very therapeutic, which is probably why so many grew from the hook!
Quite a few escaped the camera!
They have given me inspiration for the coming year, as I hope to dust off my drop spindle, with the intention of creating some textured woolly yarns.
Wishing you a creative, peaceful, hopeful and happy 2016!
