August 2014

Apparently I haven't posted since February 2014.  This year is flying by at light speed.

One never thinks they have been that active until they look at the completed projects they have accomplished. That is definitely the case with me.  A couple of market bags that I knitted:

Pretty knitted washcloths, also out of cotton:

Knitted sweater out of dk weight alpaca. Yarn purchased from an alpaca vendor at CNCH several years ago:  

The Drall towels came off the loom about a month ago. I really love them. The yarn came from the Lunatic Fringe yarn shop. The Warp is natural colored hemp and the weft is 10/2 cotton. They were woven on my LeClerc Weavebird loom:

Kumihimo Bracelet and Amulet Bag

Dear readers - I have been busy but have been lazy about posting.  I am in the process of finishing two small projects right now. One is a kumihimo bracelet and the second is an amulet or treasure bag.  The bracelet was made on one of those little foam disks that you can get almost anywhere. I don't have a marudai (yet). The amulet bag is made from waxed linen and was mostly done with a buttonhole or blanket stitch with beads added. I have also been playing around with card weaving but don't have anything to show for that right now.
