lazy sunday crochet

Recently I've been trying my hand at trickier crochet techniques, having mastered (but not yet exhausted the possibilities of - oh goodness me no) different coloured circles made into blanket squares (see here and here for previous examples of this particular addiction).

This scarf is an attempt to trial some of the stitches I'm going to need for this little baby jacket I'm making, or perhaps it's just a selfish act of instant gratification because I want and NEED a soft pinky merino scarf to warm my pretty little neck... you decide.

Next week I'm going to post some more photos of the work of C.F. Tunnicliffe, one of my favourite painters of wildlife and the English countryside, so to whet your appetite here's 'Thrush in snow', one of his etchings from 1935.

Hello from New York!

Your crocheting is beautiful! How funny that I am not completing one of those multi-color, multi-squared afghans, and you are moving along into lacy intricacies.

Winter is a good time for fooling around with yarns.

It's mild enough today to encourage my walking across the Park to the library (rather than taking the bus.) I am going to explore the stacks and see if I might find something with Mr. Tunnicliffe's pictures. Surely yes!

Best wishes. xo

Love the crochet and love the thrush picture too. I will look forward to the rest. I do wish I could draw and paint - any effort of mine looks hopeless and clumsy and not at all like what I have in my head.

Frances, how exciting that I can now picture you searching for books in your wonderful old library! Now that is worth walking across the park for.

I am hopelessly addicted to crochet, winter or summer! :-)

Elizabeth, creativity comes in lots of forms and your lovely pictures of your garden are living proof that you can translate a vision beautifully...

And thanks Mum!

Oh, and I meant to add that anyone whose fashion icon is Moominmamma is alright in my book!!
