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 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.
I love delving into a new weaving technique and expanding my understanding of the technique with every project I make. My journey into weaving led me to experiments centered around the shadow weave technique throughout 2019. In my woven world, 2020 was characterised by explorations of advancing twill and echo effects. I have a feeling that 2021 will be the year of turned taquete.
