I need to make a correction to yesterday's post...apparently the triangle frenzy swirl pattern IS rocket science. I was honored to have a post from Bunnie Cleland, the artist who designed the pattern and learned that she was actually a nuclear engineer! What an honor to hear from the creator of this marvel!
I needed to take a break from the quilting for a while and try my hand at these. It was a post on Facebook that introduced me to this concept.
After watching the video and hitting pause a great deal and referring to my cheat sheets on crochet stitches, I finally managed to create two of them.
The one on the left was my first try using some left over variegated yarn. I goofed up and somehow got six petals. The yellow one shows I've mastered the technique.
I showed them to Left Brain and got that bland smile that husband's give you when they're thinking "what in blazes is that and what does she want me to say?"
I put him out of his misery and just said "cat toy" and could see the relief ease across his face.
Long Live the Queen of Crafts
