Untitled fiber art piece for show




This is newly finished, and it's knitting with crochet added to it. The top part is Field of Wheat, very traditional stitch pattern, and I followed it with double crochet, which I hugely increased, then decreased, to create the drapes you see. I falls naturally into a three dimensional shape. No title for this yet, but it reminds me strangely of primitive figures!

Size about 30 x 12 inches. The point of hanging pieces like this for a while before storing them clean for the show is to let them breathe for a while and adopt their preferred dimensions and drape. A dress or not a dress? that too will emerge in a few days. I must get this piece's opinion on that.

Pretty colour. I taught myself to knit backwards for those confounded bobbles. Not so bad to keep turning the work when you only have a few to do but not so much fun when you have a whole project with lots of them. Will be interested to hear her name.

Looks like first comment didn't get through. Love this piece. Wish I could touch it..such tactile appeal.
