I’ve just discovered that Lesha of LeshasWorkshop included my Blue Roses yarn in this nice Treasury:
This has also been a good occasion for me to discover a great artist. Leisha knits, sews, hunts vintage and does mixed media functional objects.
Go visit Lesha’s Workshop, you will like her original handmade creations.
I just discovered that Northeast Fiberart Center has launched its 3rd Biennal Fiber Challenge.
As stated on the website this challenge is an invitation or call to create something, given a defined set of yarns/fibers that you probably wouldn’t put together on your own (hence, the challenge) thru means of knitting, crocheting, tatting, weaving, felting, hooking, tapestry, bobbin lace, or any other fiber craft by which you are able to transform the set of yarns/fibers into a finished product for which you may win a great prize!
It promises to be very amusing and I’ll try to participate.
I need a break, so I’m writing just a little note on my work.
I’m deconstructing my purple jacket to check my old instructions before releasing the pattern.
Up to now, everything has gone well… oops, I said it! Cross my fingers…
I’ve also been making a couple of photos of the garment, just to have an idea of how it might result once printed.
Here they are:
As I originally knitted the main part of this garment with a bulky merino I had handspun for the purpose, I’m also working some samples with commercial yarns to provide the right yarn substitutions.
It won’t be easy, but it’s so amusing!
Well, pause is over. Back to work.
