An experiment...

When I'm in-between projects I like to play around with yarn to see if something 'spurts' in my hands or brain!
This time, I using different colours of the same yarn to see the difference between the textures of crochet vs knitting.
The crochet is making the yarn heavier whereas the knitting is making the yarn lightweight... hmm.
I was hoping to turn it into a tea-cosy but the thick bits & the thin bits are well, they are frustrating. I think I'll put this project aside at the moment & come back to it at a later date!!


  1. une belle variétés de points et de couleurs pour un manteau ou une veste ce serait top je crois biz

  2. You never know if you don't give it a go......
    These sort of experiments can lead to some great projects. Keep working at it you never know what might come out of it.

  3. It's good to experiment ~ I like the earthy colours you've used.

  4. love the patchwork quality to it, I think it would look lovely as a tea cosy :-)

  5. maybe you could line it?

  6. Crazy stitching ... sort of like doing a crazy quilt. I love the look of knitting but just couldn't get the hang of it. Crochet is definitely bulkier but I'm sure there must be a way to make them work in harmony. :) Have a great day. Tammy
