A friend on twitter directed me to this website today:
What a stunning piece of freeform crochet.
The website is actually in French, and the author (Marie) labels it "Crocheter en liberte", which means "liberated crocheter".
It's made me want to tackle freeform crochet which I've always ALWAYS put aside on a shelf for something maybe to try at one point in the future. This has just brought it a little closer.
But for now, I have a bunny to make! Tomorrow I am going to find some appropriate bunny-coloured cotton to make my bunny for a little man out of. It needs to be sewn together super well, because apparently he's just started walking!!
