Botanic Explosion

This piece is already sold, but I really liked it so I thought I would share it.

It's made from a nice bamboo/wool sock yarn that was fun to work with.  I've posted a couple of the pieces that I used to make it.  These days I'm really enjoying working with tiny pieces to create larger works.

Real Tips and Tricks

Sunflower Scarf WIP

A commissioned project.

Cotton thread

so far 8 cups of coffee have been consumed while creating this.  :-)

the sunflowers should standout against the background of sky blue flowers.

WIP updates

The background on the poppy scarf is coming along nicely.

Nearly done making pieces for the brown scarf.

Poppy Scarf

Progress is slow but steady.

most of the pieces

lots of icord

a few inches of the back done.  I've done about 2 1/2 times this now.  Getting faster at it.  After I'm done with the back I'll fill in the front with a few more buds.

Lacy Scarf

I used one of the Red Heart boutique yarns for this one and I love the way the colors worked into the design.

The pattern comes from a Ukranian crochet magazine.  I found a link to an online picture of it at Pinterest

WIP #2

This scarf will be made op of a LOT of different motifs.  I idea is to make this all unique and not duplicate any of them.

The yarn is a wool/silk/nylon blend

The photo is of some of the pieces, not the layout.  I'm nowhere near that stage yet.

WIP #1

Scarf based on a photo I saw on Instagram

The yarns are wool/bamboo, wool/silk, wool/nylon

Combination of knitting and crochet
