Fame at Last!


Recently, I volunteered to test knit some yak yarn for Kerrie of Hipknits, a good piece of occupational therapy for one laid up by a virus, following medical advice to rest. This is a new line and I really enjoyed knitting this light and lovely yarn.


Today it, and my photos, are featured here. Haven't told Anna she's a web-model yet - isn't the scarf a good match with her top?!


I'd happily use yak yarn again. It sounds as if it should be coarse and hairy, but I can assure you that it's anything but. It is very snuggly for its weight and very drapey, too.

The scarf is beautiful that yarn looks yummy, and Anna looks like the perfect model :)

I hope you are feeling better. The scarf is dynamite. The silk vessels are fantastic. I've always wanted to learn how to create them. The work, however, that totally blows me away is the "Doormat". The very idea of interpreting poetry in fibers is captivating. What you've made is perfect for the words and so very, very impressive texturally. It is so well crafted that I can't tell how it was made...even using your explanation. It is WONDERFUL! Thanks so much for sharing it. Best of luck with the exhibition. Are you juried in or submitting for acceptance? If submitting, you're a shoe in!

Beautiful scarf!
And your pictures from the workshop with Maggy are even more beautiful than those on your other blog.
BTW, up to now I master the circular needles. Now I have to try them for real :-)
