Back to Basics

When a post from a followed blog – Pippinpoppycock.com – pointed to Lucia’s Fig Tree and her Vintage Walrus design, I gasped: if that isn’t a summation of everything glorious about motif crochet, I don’t know what is.

Such beauty !

One can say “such colours !”, but any colours would do: the original for this beauty is almost monochrome, and it still looks wonderful.

Am I going to have a go at it ? – what do you think ?!

It’s going to cost a motza for the yarn, because what would be the point in creating something like this from mediocre material ?

Anyone similarly struck by this blanket / throw / afghan / article of joy should follow my link to Pippin Poppycock so as to find out about its creator, the amazingly dual-nationed Lucia (would you believe Italian and Scottish ?!), whose output one wishes were twenty times as great.

(Can’t even contemplate buying yarn until the despicable previous agents release my bond: there’s a hearing set for the end of this month, after which life will once again become liveable.)

  1. It will indeed bring me joy, M-J – but only if I can do it well. How long will it take ? – the piece of string analaogy comes into play. :)

  2. That’s a beautifully crocheted throw, M-R. Yes, I think you should give it a go because I imagine it would bring you joy. I’ll sit back and watch because I am not a talent for this. Have tried both and let’s just say I gave it up for lent and writing. :-)
