There are quite some choices to make when designing a shawl: weave structure, design, yarn and color. Sometimes, most of these ingredients are lying around and all I need to do is combine them. This was the case for the shawl I made for my husband.
Since I started handcrafting, I have become increasingly aware of my color preferences. I gravitate towards pink in particular whenever I find myself in a yarn store. Recently, I decided to dye my own pink coat and matching yarn.
A while ago, I was browsing Handweaving.net and stumbled upon some weaving drafts using the Corris effect. I had no idea what the Corris effect was, but the drafts looked lovely. In this post, I share my experience of weaving Corris for the first time.
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.
