A February Catch Up....


So February is drawing to a close and it's about time for a catch up! I finally finished the warp off that I put on the loom for the Hospice Vintage Fair. It is quite narrow but lots of fun, you can view a video of the whole thing here. Not sure what it will become yet, I may make some more bags!


 January saw me finally getting to grips with my knitting machine after it has been in storage for 5 years. I've been knitting some blanks up for the time being, yes and dyeing them!



and with the loom being free I soon got the blanks warped and wove a couple of scarves, although I wove scarf one at less ppi than scarf 2 and scarf 2 has a much better feel to it, the moral to this tale, sample you nitwit, you had plenty of yarn! Anyway now I've got a better idea how much warp and weft I need for one of these I will probably experiment a little more with the hand painting and add some more colour!

See you in March!

This is really fascinating! Sadly I don't own a knitting machine, but if desperate one could hand knit.
What colour did you use for weft? It looks great.

Hi Bimbi, thanks for your comment the weft was handpainted in the same way as the warp. It would be a very slow process to handknit blanks jst to dye for this purpose, a similar way to do this without knitting would be to wrap mini skeins on a niddy noddy or warping device and dye them in sequence.
