The Magic Gourd Scarf

* * *
Hello, I just wanted to introduce myself. I've been a crocheter since I was 7 or 8 (grandma taught me) and I've done the usual afgans and scarves and sweaters, etc. Recently, I've become more interested in felted crochet and three dimensional objects. So, I guess I'm here for inspriration and sharing.

Now that I've finished the yearly ritual of scarf and bag making, I'm working on a series of vessels (felted and not felted) and random freeform motifs to be used for something else later.

I have dabbled in other arts/crafts including mosaics, fabric dyeing, and beadwork. I have done several "art bras" for various breast cancer awareness and fundraising projects and I am also interested in public temporary labyrinths, guerilla art, and random playing of all sorts.

I am excited to see other people's work. I have taken it as a sort of personal goal to change the reputation crocheting seems to have earned as knitting's poor cousin.

I'm thinking of making some soft sculpture Goddess figures, but I'm trying to figure out what to stuff them with. Poly fill works for most of the figure, but I'd like to weigh down the base a little bit so it doesn't just flop over. Anyone have any ideas?

I'm glad you decided to check out my new community. Please check out the rules on the info page before posting.

The purpose of this community is to focus on the art of crochet, rather than its practical aspects. Those are definitely worthwhile, but also well represented elsewhere. By art I don't necessarily mean advanced. I'm quite happy to see beginners taking the Road Less Travelled, just as much as I am to see vetrans who do the same thing. Hopefully together we can show each other some truly astounding things.

A couple of things I'd like to ask from the members, though. If anyone has suggestions as to how to improve this community, whether it's adding resource links, or changing the fonts, or what have you, I'd be very happy to see it. Also, I'm looking for a good icon to represent the community. If anyone can create something, it would be very welcome.

Aside from that, simply get out there and have fun!
