** i got some Noro Silk Garden (colors 34 and 39, 1 skein of each) from a local yarn shop and just had to use them right away...i found the yarn to be perfect for crochet since it isn't soft yarn...almost has a hemp quality to it.
i worked some shapes and did crochet inbetween to fill in the
gaps...here's a link to a freeform crochet site knotjustknitting.com
...the first time i saw freeform crochet was from a book my mom gave me
(A New Look at Crochet - 1975)...in the book, artists used crochet as an
art medium, creating framed art, baskets, wall hangings,
this purse is 7" tall by 5" wide...
** the colors in this yarn are amazing...i think i'm hooked
