Fungus Among Us April 2, 2014

Posted by Mitchell in Art, Crochet.

There’s been a nasty fungal outbreak here in Casa Del Mitch. It’s my own fault really, I’ve been letting things slip. I took pictures, check them out:

Aren’t they delightful? I love mushrooms, both for eating and artsy stuff. As a pure natural form shrooms come in such a variety of shapes and colors but with a very simple formula: a stalk and a cap. This offers virtually endless possibilities to riff on the form. And riff I shall.

I made these from patterns I bough from the CAROcreated Etsy shop. I bought all of her mushroom patterns and they’re worth every penny. They’re very well done and easy to follow. Officially Endorsed. I didn’t strictly follow the color suggestions for all of them though.

Still, as fun as these are they left me with a scratch un-itched. I wanted to get some size to these things. And more color.

That is great Mitch! The last pic captures them quite nicely.

another great project!

Mushrooms remind me of this book:
The Wonderful Flight to the Mushroom Planet written by Eleanor Cameron in 1954.

it was the first science fiction novel i read…

I will pay good money if you can do a morel mushroom. My dad is an amateur myco-gastronomist.

*Googles morel mushrooms* …Well now, those are rather different. I’ll have to think about that one.
