my creative space


Its all about crochet this week...learning new stitches to try and stretch myself-I find it helps me to have a small project to trial things on. Above is an oven mitt with ricrac and pin tuck crochet stitches.

I have also been busy finishing off a grey scarf order. I love using dark grey yarn.


Also found some new bird art inspiration and have been making nests of nests! So it's been lovely and creative this week, one of those rare times where the initial idea of what I want to make and the finished article seem very close.

What a great space to be in, I loved this post. I'm crazy about grey yarn too, grey & red are also a favourite combo. Are there little birds that live in those nests? So sweet xo

Hi!

Oh wow - those nests are brilliant!
& the fancy crochet stitches are great - I'd being just opening the oven for fun if I had a pot holder like that!

(PS, re the puppy - I rent too. I just have waited so long for one and I couldn't wait any more!)

Steph said...

I'm a bit in love with dark grey myself. Your nests with all those beautiful textures are absolutely, gobsmackingly beautiful. Have you thrown in some string?

dash robin said...

no string(yet!) -linen, cotton thread and other threads of various textures and weights...thanks for all the sweet feedback...so encouraging!

Kelly said...

Cool. I love it when the idea you have and the finished product match up. Sometimes it strays so far you forget what the original idea was!

Those little bird nests are cute. :D
