Winter crocheting 2015

I have been crocheting up a storm lately

I have made necklaces, blankets (multiple!) and a pillow case, which are really great wool-eating projects. Burning through a lot of very colourful wool at the moment, I have not been feeling like working with navy or grey.

The skull print granny square blanket is a pattern that I have used previously, on a skirt. This time, I did follow through and create enough squares for a blanket!

 

The pattern for the Chain Link Crochet Necklace you can find on Share Lambeth Designs. Every link individually is very simple, and together they have a striking visual effect.

The most colourful blanket on the bottom right is the latest project, and it will be my desk blanket. I don’t need it so much in winter, but am looking forward to having a cheerful summer desk blanket.

Desk blanket!

About kellymarietheartist

I am an artist who, up until recently, was living and exhibiting within Toowoomba and the greater Granite Belt district. I have since packed up and left Australia, and am currently living and working in England. My work engages the craft involved in handmaking within a contemporary art context. I am drawn to the physicality of repetitive textile processes, and this is transcribed though the tactile quality of my forms. In particular, processes such as crochet, sewing and rug making serve as a proxy for growth within my personal environment. Many of my works imitate situations in nature, and they form organically as I create each individual piece, each addition both a continuation and re-enforcement of its predecessors. I enjoy using recycled materials for many of my works. Using crochet and other textile techniques to do this is an important part of my work as it celebrates a tradition of craft that has historically been relegated to 'women's work', with all the negative connotations that entails.
