This is my hoard from the Waltham Abbey Wool Show, which I have been dying to try so now I have finished up the yarn tube I am going to use it.
Part 9 Using new yarn to make the scarf wider.
First piece uses new yarn and some of the beads I bought at Waltham
Second piece: the shape and the yarn speak for this patch.
These two were sewn directly onto the scarf to make it wider.
You probably recognise all the separate parts of this piece.
So you can see my way of doing free form is the jigsaw method. It gives me a chance to try out any new motifs, stitches, yarn or methods. I don't worry too much about colours since I have already chosen the palette before I start but I have to admit that when I am immersed in a project like this, I am blinkered in yarn shops to only choosing things that I think will go with it. This is a good thing because it does stop me from buying too much yarn.
Next time one of my favourite jobs: part 10 making a fringe, part 11 the big reveal.
Lynn and Victoria.
