Scrumbling or Scumbling ?

Thank-you to all of you who have commented lately.


With this in mind, I've had a few comments asking what exactly is a scumble ?


So I thought I'd spend this post trying to explain !



"Scrumbling" is a term that was first coined by the UK Crochet Textile Artists ,
James Walters and Sylvia Cosh which describes crocheting in a very abstract or freeform way.




Over the years this term seems to  have become interchangeable with the word "scumble," and today many freeformers use these two terms interchangeably.


There are some fantastic freeform artists whose work is very inspiring....
....just take a look at the links in my side bar.



As for this scrumble or scumble...it measures 7cm x 40cm and
has just been packaged off to here and if you fancy adding a piece yourself there's still
time to get out your hook and scrumble or scumble !

P.S apologies for the "blueness" of my pictures, they were actually take outdoors, but the light has not been particuarly good inside or out !
