Here some more scrumbles I have completed for my freeform shawl:
The second one is not really flat, and it is boring, but the first one seems okay.
I wanted it to be all wonderful like all the freeform projects that I so admire an Ravelry and in books. It may still be: it can be difficult to tell before it’s done. I also suppose that it also may not be realistic of me to expect to be really good at something the first time I try it, but who said I had to be realistic?
I am completely smitten with freeform lace crochet (see this book).
I was hesitant, as I am not really that good at crochet, but I don’t need to know what any of the names of the stitches for this, so I am fine.
(I swear the same stitches have different names in different places, and they don’t all define everything, but don’t listen to me I am just bitter)
The other exciting thing is that I am not sure I could come up with a better combination of yarn and technique than Noro kureyon sock yarn and this, and just look at it:
I am liking this so much; it is much more fun than counting and reading patterns.
I think I may like to stay in this newly discovered crafty country for a while and see where the randomness takes me.

Within the next few days I will be posting the free pattern for the scarf I made with the Girls Throw Snow Handspun Yarn I bought from Milkyrobot a few months ago.
Here is a sneak peak:
