Perhaps one of the most well-known mathematical concepts in the world of handcrafts is the Fibonacci sequence.In one of my latest hand weaving projects, I used the Fibonacci sequence to design a wavelike pattern.
Now that winter is over, it is time to stash away the thick winter yarns and bring out some yarns suitable for spring. The start of spring is the perfect time to work on some light and airy shawls.
Last year, I became a member of the Dutch Weaving Association Weefnetwerk. To my surprise, they sent me a lovely gift by by mail sometime in November 2020. To make up for the lack of physical activities, each member received a colourful set of weaving cotton. This was such a nice surprise - the perfect present for every hand weaver.
Last year, I made a blanket covered in four-leaf clovers for my sister. Earlier this year, I decided to continue along this line and make a shawl with even more lucky clovers for her birthday.
At the end of 2020, I made some shawls for my sister, niece and nephew. Of course, I could not leave out my brother-in-law, so I asked him if he wanted a shawl as well. He was enthusiastic about this idea and we quickly decided on a shawl with blue shades and round shapes. Not unlike the shawl I made for his son.
