I've been admiring the projects in Myra Wood's new book, Creative Crocheted Lace. Freeform knit and crochet is a big favorite of mine, and the idea of using lace in a freeform style has turned out to be more appealing to me than traditional lace forms. Even though I've never made a freeform garment of any kind, I decided to jump in and make a lace jacket with these scrumbles.
Originally, I was going to cover a denim bag with these pieces, and I'm sure that would have been a great project. But the way this Araucania Pomaire yarn is dyed works so well with the freeform lace made me want to wear it on more than just a bag.
There are not quite enough pieces for the back yet, but they work up quickly. I started them last week during a chamber music concert at the UNC Chamber Music Workshop and kept going through all of the concerts I attended.
There are more, I'll post them later!
