11  FIBER ARTS / Weaving: Completed Projects / ruffly scarf on: July 14, 2008 09:12:20 PM
made of: black caron simply soft; grey paton's classic merino. inspired by some scarves i saw on a blog that i read regularly but whose name i cannot remember--if you know what i'm talking about, or if it was you, let me know. i want to credit the person who came up with using two fibers--one that shrinks and one that doesn't (the blogger used merino and tencel, if i remember right)--to create this ruffled effect.

i really would like some feedback, please, even if it is negative.

I work at a museum where I do artisan demonstrations sometimes...I learned how to do it so it because it is a traditional way to weave 'sashes' (basically long, tie-up belts) that became popular in Canada during the Fur Trade era.  There are 'how to' books...if you're interested I can post the names!

you know how lucky you are to work at such a museum?

and heck yeah, a list of recommended books would be excellent!

:making plans to add to extensive belt collection:

cool! personally, i love the colors, but then i haven't seen ninja turtles in approximately ever. say, where'd you learn that, btw? i've seen it mentioned in weaving books, but never in depth.

nice! i, too, like the variegation in your warp. what color did you use for weft?

i do love how knitting is "punk" now! that amuses me to no end, even though it probably shouldn't. i love it, too, because it wildly expands the horizons of what we can make, in terms of available colours, patterns, and plain *ideas*. plus, it would be right unfair for a punk to look down on someone for being different, so we can all make different things, and be happy. it's... it's just awesome.

i feel like i should be singing that "boom-de-yada" song.

20  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: I knitted a buhtfir! on: July 02, 2008 11:41:30 PM
(And usually, a buhtfir isn't for sitting, it's for POOPIN'!)

depends on which movie you watch. the three amigos say it's for sittin'; trey parker and matt stone (also known as "trey parker and matt stone") say it's for poopin'.

irl, it is of course for both.
