Images pop into my head that make me cackle softly with glee and I feel compelled to make them real and inflict them on the world. Being difficult by nature, my art media of choice is the creation of crocheted appliques. I love the challenge of turning thread into something recognizable. Someone at Ravelry who gets this about me suggested the whole Hatchet Man thing and, well, I just had to give it a go. The version I made is about 5 inches square, in crochet thread with a size 9 hook. Good size for accenting scarves, hats, lapels, sleeves, backpacks.... Hmm. Now I'm wondering how one made in yarn with a "letter" hook would look on the back of a jacket? Or a baby blanket? BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY basic crochet GAUGE Does not matter for this pattern. Can even be worked with yarn - just expect the finished piece to be larger. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS approx. 5" square

Tying knots in string with little steel hooks is a surprisingly versatile medium. The creative freedom is intoxicating. But to avoid the "what next" hangover, I write patterns of what I create and move on to the creativity saloon. Look around. You just might find something odd, funny and/or fun that you like.
