Paper Crochet
















Here is a little snippet of some work in progress involving crocheting shredded paper. This photograph is of three components, and there will be about 40 components when I'm finished...

Thanks Katie! Photographing white on white is difficult...they look cooler in person!

Aimee...thank you! Considering all of the beautiful paper work you've done, your encouragement means a lot...!

I suggest you try crocheting paper again...it's not hard at all! I think the trick is not being afraid to manhandle your paper. Also, experiment with a few different sized hooks...

haha--it's not the *paper* part that makes me crazy: i'm just a terrible crocheter!! i'm a "can only knit" type, but not b/c i have anything against crocheting. it's a strange hole in my brain.
