Scrumbling in the red

Sorry about being so quiet lately, but I’ve been busy putting a scad of ‘patches’ together into a scrumbled vest.  Spent last year during intermittent TV time making the patches – in shades of reds and blues and everything in between. Mostly knitted, but there was some crocheting thrown in. And very little of the knitting was regular.

Well, actually, all of the knitting was  regular.  It just wasn’t necessarily done in a regular way. The knits and the purls are as they should be as well as the single and double crochets. They just happen to go in every-which-way direction.

So now I’ve been putting all the patches together to resemble a vest.  This is where the knits and purls and single/double crochets can get a bit weird as there are very few straight lines and lots of nooks and crannies to fill in.  I think this is the part I like the most – absolutely no limits to what it takes to get it together!  There would be no way I could tell anyone how to do it, other than “do whatever it takes to get your desired result”.

It’s  looking pretty decent at the moment.  Lots of yarn tails to tuck in from all the stops and starts.  Hoping to have it finished by the end of the week – including a lining for it plus a pocket.  Will get a picture up of the finished product eventually.

  1. We need a bigger picture of your scrumbled vest! The small one looks very interesting and attractive. I can’t wait to see the vest on you. Be sure to wear it to a meeting.

    I’m taking novelty yarn tomorrow with Pat and I’m really looking forward to it. It’s a good excuse to get out of the house and spin for three hours!
