Weaving and Knitting Again

It’s been very, very hot lately (Arizona, yeah, I know), so I’ve spent much of my time inside my air-conditioned  studio.  Here’s some of the fun stuff I’ve made.

A new tote bag with Inkle loom straps.Image


I’ve started on my Christmas gift list.  This is a cowl for ???.Image


I did finish the shawlette.  The lace edge turned out nicely.Image


I decided to make a new braided rug for our bathroom.  It’s made from a craft felt fiber (Eco-cloth) made of recycled water bottles.  It braids very  easily and feels so nice on your feet.Image

More later.  Duffy says it time for his walk.

See ya,

  1. Beautiful stuff going on! The braided rug is very cool-a great way to bring a very old craft into the 21st century!

    I keep seeing your comments on Weavers blog, so I thought I would drop by. Such a lovely blog.
    If you ever have the time you should go back a year on Weavers blog, there is a UK weaver she has done a few posts on.
    I’m down here in Tucson and reading the clouds, hopefully trying to see if rain is building up.
    Also lighting a candle, can’t hurt !

    cheers, parsnip

  3. I don;t know which I like best, the shawlette or the bright inkle straps. Both are lovely!!

    I love those inkle straps! So colorful, eye catching and pretty! Wow! Great job getting started for Christmas! Beautiful shawl! And, that rug looks like so much fun! Where did you find that “Eco Cloth”? I’ve always loved braided rugs.
