Free Form Crochet and Knit

Good Morning Everyone,

My trip to Morcambe, England to attend the EXPECT THE UNEXPECTED workshops, being organized by Pauline Turner, is coming up really fast. 

I started making a new free form sweater about 2 weeks ago, hoping to get it done in time to  enter it in the fashion show at the event.  As the time was flying by, I decided that if I was ever going to get it done, I had better modify my design.  I thought that if I made the sleeves in a simple crochet shell stitch pattern, instead of the more time consuming free form, I just might do it.  I finished it this morning and I love the results.  The sweater turned out to be light and airy, making it great for summer wear, and I love the contrast of the free form, against the simpler stitch of the sleeves.

I am really starting to get excited about this trip, It should be a wonderful adventure.

Have a great day,

 

Margaret
