Freeform Knitting & needle felting.....


Lots of great inspiration from this beautiful book.
Here are a few of the pictures from the book, as you can see with freeform sky is the limit.

Well now that I see these beautiful projects I want to delete my pictures of one of the projects I'm working on but it's a work in progress, besides it looks a lot better in person then in the pictures.

Progressing slowly..... but a lot of fun....I just keep adding bits and pieces....


I started this project while I was traveling around the country because it is a yarn that is sold at JoAnn's Fabric store. Most major U.S. cities have a JoAnn's so I could pick up more yarn anywhere...."paprika"

Hi Ana,

I linked here from the Knitter's Review site, where I heard that you do Freeform! I love the idea of one yarn FF when you're traveling...and your paprika vest looks great!

Ana, your "paprika project" with one color looks amazing. And it happens to obe a color I very much like! Bullions? Is that what they're called? I'm just learning freeforming, but you must have been doing this for a LONG time and/or have a ton of artistic talent. Chelle

Found you from Knitter's Review, and I keep coming back to look at your freeform project, which I find fascinating and lovely, like something growing organically. Where did you learn the technique? Is there a book on it?
