I know you've been worried ever since a friend and I (along with about 6 others) signed up for the Playing with Fiber class at the local School of Art and Design.
I missed class 1 on paper weaving (and you were ecstatic, thinking I was ditching the whole idea). Sorry. I was on board for the
- nuno felting...
Check. That was fun, but nothing I'm going to give YOU up for.
Next up: some basic free-form
- loom work....
(I think this might turn into a cross-body pouch...I'm felting an old pillow top as I type. See? Thinking of you all the time!!!) This was really fun and I found lots of use for nasty/old/outdated/teenybits of yarn. I might actually do this again. But probably not real soon. (Most definitely not real soon.)
- fabric beading was next ...which can magically become a basket or trivet or something wonderful if you are more artistic than I
You have to use your imagination here. You must trust me on this one. A finished something is very cute. I have an unwieldy stash of fabric that might get used for this----someday. Not soon. Just some day. Once again, Knitting. You are safe.
- indigo dyeing. The baby things were stinkin' cute!
My journal pouch was really too small, so I dyed a new one.
As a total rookie I horribly messed up the scarves, which necessitated some visible mending, resulting in something better than just dyed (IMHO...OK, so not very humble.)
I have a new project bag (yes, just for YOU, Knitting!) ----Onesie, you are very cute, but you don't need to hop in every photo.
Indigo dyeing? In two dye sessions, I turned just about everything I own blue...including my hands (I look rather Smurf-like at the moment)... and blue isn't exactly a colour I'm enamored with anyway....so I'm sort of done with indigo dyeing for now. Not just sort-of. Done. DONE. DONE. FINI. DONE.
So there, Knitting. Feel better?
