New Hairy Object

I made a new hairy object today. I was tidying up the studio and decided to re-crochet a failed carrot trial into an upright object with a base to fit a recommissioned trolley that was also waiting for a home.

Guidelines for the undertaking were: taller than it is wide but remaining self supporting, with base or ‘skirt’ to fit the trolley bed as closely as possible. It was not intended to be phallic, but even I have to admit that I could be conceived to have some resemblance to the male body part. But then it can be (and in the 90’s regularly was) argued that anything taller than it is wide could be considered phallic.


I could title it “Retro Crotch(et)* Trolley” or maybe “Postmodern-Chic (trolley)”.
