I have been taking some pictures of older projects and status of projects.
Here is a pillow in overshot, using rag strips as the pattern.
Here is a piece of fabric. I gave a warp demonstration and ended up with a piece 4" wide and just over 1 1/2 yards long. What am I going to do with that?...And to top it off it is two colors, yes I just used the thread in the same size that was left on a couple of shuttles I found laying around.
This is a scarf that I made from some leftover yarn that I had been using for sales scarves. On this warp I was trying to have the stripes show a distinct change and a gradual change in color.
This is scarf that I wove with tencel. I like the way the lace blocks show up. I wove one for a friend, and one for me.
I was playing with making some knitting markers. The shawl I am working on has over 20 repeats around the circle and I made matching markers to use. Oh yes, I really need to have matching markers for my work, And besides they are shine and look pretty.
I also made me some more markers with some glass beads I found. I made enough to give a set to another friend.
Here is a hat I made after taking a dye class at my LYS. We painted some pre-knit blanks. I had lots of fun with colors. I did not want to do socks...that was what was suggested. Instead I bought some solid brown of the same weight and knit a two color hat. I made up the pattern as I went, shape from one pattern, color work from another source. In knitting the sides of the hat, I thought the orange was too much so I cut off a big section of it. I wanted the color work to balance a little more. With the leftover orange, I made a cord and stitched it around the ridges.
This is a scarf that I wove using commercial dyed sock yarn. I wanted to have the stripes look as wide in the weaving as they do in the socks that you knit. I think that it worked well. I also knit a pair of socks from the second skein I bought to use as weft.
Well, that's it...a bit of this and that.
