The newest piece is beginning to take shape. The final form it takes is not apparent at this stage but the same archetypal shapes come back to me again and again. Are they hard-wired or have they been imprinted on my brain after years of looking at cell structure through a microscope? The plastic bag yarn is becoming finer and the stitches more uniform. Lots of practise and increased neuromuscular wiring has made the medium and technique very familiar and the fingers are dancing quicker than ever.
A little nest, the first found here. The eyes are rehearsed in spotting this delicate structure,
and dear Lucy (a sight hound) has spotted YOU!
At the local market I found some old tools..........
a net making needle,
and a drawknife.
I want to learn how to make rope/cord from the abundant plant material here. How to lash sticks together and how to thatch. What shape the new projects take is anyone's guess.
