The Inspiration of Plastic Bags

IMG_5370 My final inspiration from the Knitting and Stitching Show ... Royal Museums Greenwich had a stunning display and participation stall filled with the crocheted bags of Akleriah. IMG_5369Joy! Here at last, people who knit with plastc bags and ambition!

My crochet and knitting has some way to go before I can create pieces like these but this moment reinvigorated both my determination to conquer these traditional techniques, and my inspiration to keep alive my collection of coloured plastic bags. Oh dear, more hoarding.
