Knitting, Weaving and More

Since I haven't been doing much art, now what might I be doing you might wonder.

This is a hat I just finished knitting.  I wish you could feel it, it is so soft. Its made from Noro Silk Garden which is a silk/wool blend.

Here it is being modeled but the color is not real true which is why I showed the first picturee.

A side view show the entrelac pattern and the bobbles. I bought the yarn back in January when I visited my sister.  We both made the same hat.


This is my loom all warped and ready to begin weaving. I am making dishtowels.

These are some of the colors I'll be weaving with.

Here is what the pattern look like.  Its a bird eye twill.  I'll be changing the colors every inch or so.


I have been making these Soup Cozies, they are like a potholder for your bowl that you cook in the microwave. That way you don't touch the hot bowl, plus you can hold it on your lap and its an insulator.  I am selling these to make some spending money for my trip.

I have made 15 so far.  I'll sell them at the Snake River Fiber Festival in May.

Each side is a different fabric. That way you can use both sides if you want.

Plus its more fun to make them that way. I am selling them for $12. If you are interested leave me a comment or send an email.


  1. Wonderful weaving and your hat is simply amazing!! Such a good idea to have soup bowl cozies :)

  2. Knitting is great, i am finding it again this spring. Love your craftiness! :)

  3. You've been busy! The hat colors are great, and I like seeing all those blue threads lined up for your weaving.


I love and appreciate receiving your comments.
