Sweaters for rocks

I’ve been in a creative funk of late.  Sometimes it helps just to do something creative to jump start my brain.  So I decided to crochet around a few more rocks.  It got me into the studio, got me thinking and creating, and allowed me to relax a bit.  Crocheting around rocks is an intuitive craft.  There is no pattern since every rock has its own unique properties and proportions.  One can start with an idea in mind but at some point it all needs to be adapted to its particular form.  I chose some different threads this time, lending some different textures and variety to each stone.  Each of the group of three is for sale at Six Loose Ladies yarn shop.  The one on the lovely hand dyed fabric was given to my friend Colleen.
