hanging the vine



There is a local community garden round the corner from where we live. It is a beautiful place of growth, recycling, community sharing, and organic produce. It makes me smile.


I have been getting a little more adventurous with my free-form crochet, so decided to create a vine, with little flowers, to tag the outside gates of the community garden. Fitting the ethics of sustainability, I used recycled yarns for this project. The green is synthetic to the point of plastic-ness and was quite tough to work with, being pretty stiff. There are plenty of things I know I can improve on, but I mastered a new technique (for me) - decreasing stitches! Yeehar!
