after reading the last interweave knitting i decided to give the shibori thing a try.
so i made a scarf and tied a bunch of marbles in it.




this is it after felting. alot of the marbles fell out through the stitches, but it just made smaller bubbles so it kinda worked out.

Oh, that is funky and cool! Great job!

I didn't read the article in IK -- the pic didn't look all that interesting. But I don't think I know what I was looking at. I need to take a second look.

That is really cool!  I haven't had the (erm) balls to do that yet, but I think now I'm definitely going to have to give it a try.

So, are you gonna wear it?

wow that is awesome -- so are the marbles supposed to come out during the felting or do they stay there?

I was also wondering if you remove all the marbles after the scarf was felted?  If not it could be a very effective self defense tool! I could imagine all the innocent bystanders being wounded as you dramatically fling your scarf over your shoulder! Shocked

very cute though!

i was planning on wearing it, but it's still pretty warm in boston.

i tied the marbles with regular thread. just wrap it around about 5 times and tie a couple of knots so it doesn't break.

the marbles are SUPPOSED to stay in during felting. about 1/2 of them fell out of mine, but the thread stayed so it made little felted bubbles.

after felting, i blocked it and let it dry. once it was dry, i cut off all the thread and removed the remaining marbles.

That's cool!  Grin

But I'm confused - what about it is shibori?  Huh

me too... when I learned it, I was taught that it's a Japanese dyeing technique where you use thread as a resist.. but maybe it has a broader definition?
