Our Creative Spaces - Triangles (Again)




More triangle cushions, this time inspired by the Nani Marquina Digit Rugs. Some lessons learned about representing pixelisation too... it really doesn't work unless you're using tiny squares ;)

The first one took forever, playing around with placement. I ended up having one of each colour in the rug (it didn't really work but I like the rainbow freshness of it). For the second I took the main colours and tried to show the gradation.


I found a cork board and have been pinning my completed triangles there to get a better sense of what I have and possibilities for colour combination.



This triangle thing is going to go on for a while I think. Visit the Our Creative Spaces sign up page to see more varied wares ;) Thanks to Kirsty for making it all possible.

Pixelated or no, I love 'em all.

You do realise, that if anyone ever designed you a logo, there would have to be a triangle involved?

I've been missing out on so much while being internet-less! Should be getting my new laptop next week. Hooray!

Those triangles are looking wonderful and so neat. I can't wait to watch their progress.

Very clever. I'd be happy just playing with them like a jigsaw puzzle.

Kate said...

I love it all!
I love the way the triangles fit together to make bigger shapes, the way the colour placement affects the greater pictre and the wooly texture.
Gorgeous space.

You've been so busy since I last popped by (forgive me!). Loving the triangle cushions and Nani Marquina's Digit Rugs are a brilliant inspiration (would love one of your cushions and one of her rugs!!)

Oh, amazing! I just finished a cushion of squares knitted like this, but triangles are so much more fun! Very inspiring :)

Hi Tara - thanks for your comment.

I sell a pattern on my Etsy store where I explain how to make this cushion, including how to join the triangles. You can find it here:
