crochet update




i'm getting there with my hex blanket ~ it's going to be a 3/4 length, one person couch blanket!!
modelled by the littlest boy.
the last pic is the first draft . . . i did my usual jump in, think later thing. i couldn't picture this design working with just these colours, or even with the addition of another colour. it was way too complicated!
the blue ones are 2 different shades, which is a bit hard to see in this light.

** ooty has made this sushi plate based on my work, so chuffed :)

Looks very cozy and nice. And the color choice is beautiful, just like in your paintings. Who wouldn't want to be the littlest boy? :)

Cuuute! I've crocheted forever, but never anything that has taken longer than a couple of hours. This makes me want to tackle a blanket!

Stephanie said...

your work is amazing! When I see something like this all I can think about is how we have stuff from my great grandmother like it. Stuff that was made by hand, made to last, and that always looks good no matter how many years go by.

Pretty! I love the colours. I still haven't figured out the crochet thing... I think I need someone to teach me.. trying to follow diagrams from a book just isn't working. ;)
