I've been doing lots of playing this week... experimenting with just what works
(and doesn't) with the new-to-me crochet technique I posted on last week.
Play 1: Multiple colours and creating shapes and shading.
So, multiple colours (I had three going at once) was straight forward.
Creating shapes wasn't too bad (as long as you don't mind a fuzzy definition!)
but shading didn't really work.
Play 2: One colour small shapes.
This was very easy and much more effective. The shapes still don't have definition
but instead look like paint dabs, which I rather like. I like the little speckly peeks of
colour you can see in the spaces in between too :)
Play 3: I did try text too but it was just terrible AND I forgot to take a photo before
madly unravelling it all... sorry ;)
Anyway, I feel like I understand the limitations of this technique a bit more.
I also added bits here and there so I can make something useful out of it...
I'm thinking it could make a cute pencil case if I fold up the halves and crochet a
couple of panels for the sides?
Just an idea... you may see it in the shop one day ;)
Hope you've had a great week... Find more creative spaces here.
p.s. I have a 500 posts giveaway that will be drawn this Sunday 30th October.
p.p.s. There's also a Pay it Forward happening if you're keen?
I have crocheted sides and have an almost pencil case.
All it needs now is some lining and a zipper....
