Knit, Purl, Sow

Enjoyed the exhibit, Knit, Purl, Sow, 
at The Brooklyn Botanic Gardens with my friend, Barbara.

It was a lovely drizzly autumn day.
Perfect for a walk around the garden grounds with such good company.

 Love the use of the tacks to hold the plants to the wall.
They are part of the piece.

Sacs and shadows.

Knitted installation in Madison Square Park

I like the rick-rack aspect of it.
Makes me start to think about 
International Yarn Bombing Day on June 9th!

On a break from crochet for the time being.  Creative expression via photoshop in my Textile Design class. This is from the assignment: create a tossed non-directional conversational design.

Colors change

Crocheting with multi colored yarn means that one gets a surprise as each square takes shape.

Doily Wall Hanging - more and better photos

Recently I joined the new CROCHET CREW GROUP on facebook. Devoted crocheters post photos of their projects.  It's such fun!  
So I posted about my wall hanging and got some enthusiastic responses.  Realized that the quality of the photo was not stellar, so here it is again, for my blog.  
Cleaner and clearer this time.

A composition of my doily collection that includes home made and acquired over many years.  
Red and purple pansies and groovy daisy are my creations.
