If at first...

All artists experiment. Our lives are filled with "what if I .... " It makes our days exciting.

Sometimes they work ....  sometimes they don't (my "bad" giraffes).

 And some times they don't work for you but someone else likes them (hey, Cathy... you have to show me sometime what you did with the bad giraffes).

Here is my latest attempt to design.   I am trying to work up a scarf ring.... trying being the operative word here.  This design will only work with a very open weave scarf and the pin drops out way too easily.  Back to the drawing board, as the old saying goes.

But this pattern did lead to the next piece I am going to share.  I plan to wear it simply with a slip knot cord.  I really like how the colors turned out.

Kinda reminds me of the time portal from the old Star Trek Series.


  1. Oh, this is beautiful. I really love the way you colored this. And the pattern is perfect for a shawl or scarf pin. Well done!!!!

  2. The scarf pin is beautiful. I tried my hand at making some but wasn't happy with the stick part. Then I found some very fine bamboo knitting needles (with a point at both ends) and made a bead to fit on the end and that worked well. With the pin being so fine it can go through a much tighter weave of fabric.
    Gorgeous colours.
