Fire
Air
Earth
Water
I was excited to learn of the four elements challenge, as it reminded me of a chant I know: "The earth, the air, the fire, the water, return return return return." First I made Fire. I pulled my fiery yarns and attempted to make flames. I was pleased with the results.

Next came Air. I tried to emulate clouds in the sky. Then I pulled yarns for Earth; greens and browns. I did some surface crochet, and I liked the fringey green yarn. Finally, Water. I saved Water for last because I wasn't sure how I wanted to approach it. I decided to try to replicate a ripple in water, like when you throw in a pebble. The oval view of the ripple is from an angle.
