it's a wild one....

I had some bulky yarn that I had found at a thrift store quite a while ago. I really wanted to do something with it so I decided to knit another one of those Multi-directional scarves. I knew it would be kind of wild considering the colors I had.....but I do love it. I added some crocheted flowers on one end. It's very warm and cozy. This one is for me.

Before....

and After....

wishing for a cold day so I can wear it...

Karen Ruane's Doodle class continues to be lots of fun. Wish you could see what inspiring work is being done there but I can show you my work...




beginning second piece


acrylic paper, hand dyed fabric, shell beads, hand dyed perle cotton, stencil, ink pen

I've started a third paper project. Will show you that next time.
Hope all of you who are having snow and extremely cold weather are staying safe and warm.
See you next time.

your scarf looks so so warm and cosy, very interesting what you are doing in Karen`s class, i would think working on paper is not easy as it can so easily tear and if a stitch needs removing holes are left what you have done looks incredible to me

Oh, Deanna, I love what you're doing in class. They're stand alone pieces of art, and I know you'll take them to wonderful places in stitch at some stage. Thank you for sharing
