I went through a pretty serious weaving obsession for a little while last year. I set up myself a makeshift loom using an old frame from a cheap canvas and wrapped the yarn around it.
James made me a rigid heddle using coffee stirrers and chopsticks and then I bought a shuttle from the Melbourne Spinners and Weaver’s guild.
It really looks super dodgey but it’s super functional.
These scarves were gifts for my parents. The frame was just long enough to make a decent size scarf.
And it was easy to figure out how to do basic colour work by alternating colour strands!
What I would love to do next (though I say this knowing full well that I haven’t looked at the loom since I did all of these scarves…) is made a massive blanket sized shawl/scarf. Like double the size of the loom, it would be so warm and awesome!
These scarves were awesome as stash busters too, all of that super soft acrylic that I just didn’t know what to do with ended up as big cushy scarves 😀
The last hat in my series of WonderFluff hats for KnitPicks! This one would look very striking in a black and white combo so I think I will have to make some more 😀
Scallop Pixie is a simple hat pattern with earflaps featuring a 2 colour rib as well as scalloped and spot colour work. The tapered shape is created by starting the work flat then joining in the round with short rows at the back. With an easy to memorise stitch repeat, this fun, fashionable and very quick knit is great for last minute gifts.
Today is a bit of a classic look in blue. When I wore Lolita clothes, I used to have a very similar style of dress to this!
