Knife River, MN USA
Free Form Challenge 2014; One Color
I actually enjoyed this theme. I choose red as my color as it went well with my gold purse frame. If I had a silver frame, I would have chosen white. I enjoyed playing with a mix of shades and textures, balancing their combined weight against the other yarns and threads that I chose to give balance to the piece. I alternated by whim between my crochet hook and my knitting needles and used the same size hook and the same size needles no matter what yarns that I used, the threads varied widely in size as well as texture. I embellished my piece with four different sizes of red beads and used them to balance the piece.
