minipods

played around one evening and these were ‘born’

photographed 5 this morning but have made 5 more since

cradled them in a pottery dish made by a famous scottish potter, which i found in a village market in tasmania

size 3 hook; grey yarn (not sure what it is, as it was given to me; could be sock wool as it’s on a cone); mauve/grey bugle beads

crochet neckpiece

i’ve finally got around to photographing some of the more subversive crochet i’ve been working on

here is a detail of a crochet neckpiece i made to my own design –

the beads are vintage and made of glass; the yarn is a from a cone of thin wool someone gave me

i also incorporated metal washers from the hardware shop and some black sustainable wood beads

an upcycled button works well as a closure, with a few dangly bits to add interest

it’s for sale, but if it doesn’t sell i’ll wear it myself … i really love it, and the colours match my wardrobe
