I've been trying to be more pattern-organised in my creative space this week...
and this is what I've come up with.
My process with composing the crocheted triangle cushions is so erratic,
so haphazard... I'll crochet up the triangles I think I'd like and then only
once I see them next to each other do I realise whether they'll 'work' or not.
Consequently, I have a lot of spare triangles in the 'didn't work' pile.
So, I've gone back to this wonderful book and have been
playing with pattern making.
It's been a fabulous help with figuring out more complex forms.
My own triangle grid has helped me compose colour combinations on the
computer so I can get a better idea of whether they'll work...
... and I can calculate how many triangles I'll need ahead of time
so there's less time wastage.
This is all probably sounding incredibly anal, but it helps me feel more
productive and less like a meandering ninny ;)
