Banana in progress by mikka

Banana in progress

Prompt: Fresh Fruit
prompted by: Maigan Lynn, during Sketch Fest #34 (March, 2013)

This artist has posted at least one finished version of this piece!

I'm crochetting a basket of fruit as a wee contribution to an upcoming knit-and-crochet installation, so this prompt was a fine nudge to start the next piece. This is my second try at a banana, and I'm feeling thwarted again. Apples, pears, no problem. Orange, a little awkward. Banana, not working for me at all. The finished product may wind up bearing no resemblance to this attempt.


Coriander Shea says: I actually think this is pretty awesome- it does look like a banana shape already. :) ~ Reply?

     mikka replied to this: It really wants to twist around in a spiral, but bananas aren't helical! I think I've sorted out a correction, but I don't want to rip it all out to change two stitches in the first few rows.

Maigan Lynn says: Last Sketchfest I wasn't receiving notifications properly so I missed this one - it's awesome though! Nice take on the prompt and totally different media! Well done! ~ Reply?

     mikka replied to this: Thank you! Afke van Herpt ( is keeping me company in the fiber arts space. I love the installed Dancing Jellyfishes.
