Treasury Tuesday

maRRose - CCC --- Treasury Tuesday - Freeform Crochet-03If you’ve listened to the interview that famous yarnbomber Stephen Duneier had with me last year, you may have noticed him trying to convince me to become a yarnbomber. It’s true, this is a crochet related area that I haven’t touched yet, and think I should give a go… sometime 😉
maRRose - CCC --- Yarnbombing-04maRRose - CCC --- Yarnbombing-03I admire a lot of yarnbombers’ work greatly; I love the fun and beautiful yarn installations that they create, and I really believe their art makes the world a little happier.
At least, that’s the effect yarnbombs have on me: they either make me smile, or sigh in admiration.

For instance this one, by dear ig-friend Jane: I think it’s wonderful!

The thought that crochet is an art form is not new, and I loved finding artsy crochet for this week’s “Treasury Tuesday”. I searched for “freeform crochet”, and this is the beauty I found …..

I especially adore these two:

I’m personally concerned I might be tad bit too ocd to do any freeform crocheting, but yarnbombing is definitely something I’ll venture out in….. eventually 🙂

Have a happy week,
love,

  1. I adore yarnbombs and free-form knitting and crochet, especially the way they both embody freedom of spirit and unfettered creativity. I aspire to having a go at both some time but in the meantime, love to marvel at the fruits of other crafters’ labours. ?
