My Creative Space - Triangles + trips

My Creative Space this week has come out of inspiration from the amazing Mangas rugsActually, there's less creative crochet anarchy and more triangle madness going on ;)


I thought I'd warm to my subject with a bit of structure and experiment each time with some new bits of anarchy...

I found the triangle pattern on the wonderful Attic 24 Ravelry page (love Lucy) and made up my own pattern for the half triangles. I have all different colours strewn over the lounge chair and choosing the combinations has been fun :)



I plan to make quite a few and put them in my shop eventually.
So, there's going to be a lot of heavy hooking going on here.

Some international hooking even...



Soon it will be...
Greetings from Chicago!
I'm going to visit my bestie for a couple of weeks.. 
... on my own (no children!)

I have been to Chicago before with the family but this time it will be blithe spirit me with my camera and my crochet satchel :)


Many more spaces to see or to join in yourself at Our Creative Spaces.

Have a great Creative Space day and I'll see you again in a fortnight!

Love the colour combination and the geometric pattern. It looks very 1920's Art Deco. Happy Holls
