After attending the summer Knit and Crochet Show in 2008, I was inspired to try my hand at a more freeform method of crochet. You see, my creative process tends toward heavy documentation. In other words, I jot down each and every stitch in my trusty notebook when designing something. My feeling is, generally, that I never know if or when I'm going to want to make this thing again. Or, at the very least, I may want to use a previously documented pattern as a jumping off point for a new design. So, freeform? Yeah, not so much. However, always open to new processes, in 2008 I threw caution (and my notebook) to the wind and embarked on a more intuitive journey...
Crocheted bacon strips!
As many of you may be aware (hello to my tweeps and FB friends!), I thought I had lost my stack of crocheted pork strippage during my recent move. It was all very upsetting as I have big plans for this treasure! To that end, I also hate having lots of WIPs around. So, finding myself settled into my new very teensy living space with bags of WIPs literally everywhere has been motivation to enter a finishing phase. (Metaphor for my current stagnant trials and tribulations? Uh, yeah.) At any rate, I have tons of ideas for these porky, thready beauties floating about my grey matter. Nonetheless, I'd love to hear any ideas that you may have for my strips, my peeps! Please feel free to share your visions with me. And, if I happen use your idea, I'll send you a few of my thready pork strips as a token of my appreciation!
Happy Wednesday everyone!
