Crocheted Aquarium

I’m still in wintery, textile creating mode (sitting in the cold evenings curled up with thread, hook, instructions, little dogs and homemade lattes).  I’ve crocheted some pretty kitschy things in my life and some pretty cool stuff too.  I really like these creatures from the sea by Jessica Polka.  Her work and patterns can be found at her Wunderkammer shop.

Since I’ve lived in the desert all my life, the ocean and its inhabitants always fascinate me.  Check out the Hyperbolic Crochet Coral Reef at the Smithsonian Institute for some serious crochet.

Textile, Meet Sculpture

 

Usually in the winter my Multiple Muse Disorder flares up.  The cold, short days find me curled up in my living room chair, surrounded by little dogs, thinking up things to make.  I should be in the studio working on my latest illustration, but sometimes the Muses fight and I sit back and roll with it.  Combine this with finalizing the task of organizing the lovely yarn I inherited from my beautiful sister-in-law, and strange things happen.

Leaving for Connecticut

Leaving in a square cardboard space craft and traveling 3000 land miles, the welcome must have been overwhelming and that makes me smile!
