Been a busy bee during January and want to share my other recently completed projects: two small afghans.
The first I had promised as a birthday present last August…then changed it to being a Christmas present and now it has become a house warming present! I don’t usually take so long but this was a very creative project and required some serious CONCENTRATION which I frequently lack! This throw is based on the vibrant work of the artist Hundertwasser and if you haven’t heard of him then I urge you to go and take a look- he was quite an inspiration in terms of the images he created, his approach to ecological issues and the relationship of humans with our environment. Here is a link to find out more-
Now some pics to show the development of the throw and the completed item!
My second afghan was produced as response to the Crochet Crowd challenge for a ‘Happy Hearts Afghan’ and like my Hundertwasser one was made using my yarn stash. I wanted to use up some yarn and make something a little more subtle and muted than I usually do! Here are a few shots of it- I wonder which of the two blankets you like best?
