Freeform Crochet Bag and a visit to a Kaffe Fassett Seminar.

I am getting very excited about going to see Kaffe Fassett at Toft Alpaca in Dunchurch, Rugby tommorow. Its nearly a 3hr drive for me to get there so I will be leaving pretty early in the morning.

I have a new bag to wear to show my love of colour, its one I have been working on in between other jobs for the last 2 months.

I have mixed together knitting, scumbled crochet and weaving. There are little scraps of vintage fabrics woven into gaps, unusual yarns crocheted onto the surface and some ceramic buttons by Tony’s mum along with a mixture of others.

I have admired Kaffe Fassetts work since the 80’s when I used to do a lot of intarsia knitting.

I love love love all the colours he uses and the way he paints with fabric,yarn and texture.

I’m also looking forward to meeting lots of other colour loving people. Its going to be a fun day…and I have heard even the alpacas are sporting a bit of colour šŸ˜‰
