spiralling…

I read Claire’s post about spirals the other day, and couldn’t get the image of those lovely whirly shapes out of my mind. Today I finally purchased the pattern (by Charissa Ragsdale at MadMadme.com, via Ravelry), and here we go with Number One:

spiral 1

Using Vinni’s DK cotton in burnt orange and soft grey. Colours don’t show up well because it’s evening here.  Nice and easy to work, and I love the effect of the surface chain. Thanks for the inspiration, Claire.

I’m not sure what the spirals will grow into, but I am pretty sure that they will multiply quickly. It’s like that when you have other deadlines, isn’t it?  I remember one evening about thirty years ago, at 9.30pm the night before a big exam, suddenly starting to paint my kitchen walls.

Back soon x
