Granny’s Square Cushion

I was preparing some workshops for my regular January classes as well as workshops at Skive Library in Denmark in February and I thought it was about time I got going with some Granny Squares of the colourful variety!

This cushion is one of the samples that I have been working on of late and if I may say so myself, I think the colours are great fun!
However, I better get back to the hook – there are a couple of last minute presents to get done… There is nothing like a deadline to focus the mind, right?!

Free Form Crochet Fun

One of the great joys of my life is when I get a chance to prepare something new for my crochet classes. Sometimes it’s just a description of a technique that needs to be smartened up a bit or it can just be new inspiration both for my pupils and for myself.

At the moment I am preparing some free-form workshops for the autumn and while I’m doing that, my current weekly classes are being introduced to this wonderful funky fun style of crochet. A style where only one’s imagination is the limit.

As always I am trying hard to bring texture into the equation, texture is one of the most exciting elements of free-form, and as always, as you can see, it’s the colour that’s winning here and I have come to conclusion that I have to allow my mind be ruled by my heart on this – at least on the current piece I am working – and just go with the colours – textures do not come easily to me! I wonder if they ever will…

If I have a notion what this piece might turn into? I might, but we’ll see if my heart is in agreement…
