Hello! Welcome to another episode of What Am I Doing With All these Circles and Shapes? Yes, I am in love with making little shapes, and I have another project in the works. But, to refresh your memory, here is last week’s circle filled crochet lantern. Notice I included a nighttime photo?
This week I’ve been working with more Autumn tones. Browns, yellow, cream, and a little sea blue thrown together. These “scrumbles”, yes that’s the technical term even though my spell check refuses to recognize it, are going to be part of a freeform purse. No, this time I’m not going to make you guess what I’m making; I’m too excited to keep it a secret;). This is my first freeform experiment and so far it’s pretty simple, but I haven’t gotten into the textured stitches, or tried putting it all together. I am enjoying using a bigger yarn. After working with a size 10 cotton thread and a 1.65mm hook, these scrumbles are working up so much faster.
I started with a bunch of circles and then added a boarder or a “surround” (another technical term). Some surrounds are circles, some are curvy, some are lopsided, it really doesn’t matter as long as they lay flat.
