It is not something new, but it certainly something that is fun -
especially if you LOVE yarn!
In my quilts I use yarn for couching -- and my yarn collection runs just behind my fabric collection in size, so several years ago my friend Susan convinced me that I should take a 'scrumbling' workshop with her.
Hmm, just what was this scrumbling thing?
Knowing me all too well, Susan described it as crocheting without rules.
The 'no rules' thing got me, and we had a great time learning to scrumble, but note that you did kind of have to learn the rules -- in order to break them. The result is fun - free formed yarn play.
Hope you enjoy this final textural treat!
