This scarf or wall hanging was made for the Handwoven sock yarn contest.
It is made from knit picks bare sock yarns and hand dyed using ikat and hand painting techniques. It is a tabby weave with sculpted knotted pile. It was a slow process but it was worth the effort.

I was inspired by mould.





I hope it gets recognized I don't care about the money just being published would make my year. I wore it as a scarf to an art opening and a lot of people were excited about it.

Learned card weaving ^^

That's very interesting!
I really like the variety of techniques you used and I think it's pretty neat that your inspiration was mold...it would be scary to run into mold like that in real life though Grin
Nice work and thanks for sharing Cheesy

I sensed the organic vibe without knowing the inspiration, great execution.
