Sorry to be un-informed, but I don't know what a scrumble is.

A scrumble is a small piece of freeform knit/crochet work, made of several types & weights of yarn, usually joined to other scrumbles to make a larger piece. Prudence has a scrumble tutorial here on her site:

Also see her Scrumble Gallery:

Careful - if you start playing with yarn this way, the addiction is worse than World of Warcraft!

Fibre art is just so amazing. Is there any way that we could see here online some of the sample of her work?
