Choosing Colors - My Pearls

There have been many articles written that highlight various perspectives and approaches to color selection. Understandably, there is always some overlap of content. However, no matter how many articles I read or videos I watch, I always seem to glean new pearls of wisdom, whether from a weaver, a spinner, a knitter, a dyer, or sometimes from a source not associated with the fiber arts at all.

Inspiration for Design

Last year our Guild held a challenge called The Crayon Project in which each of us blindly selected three crayons and then, over several months, we had to create a project from that color inspiration.

For 2019, one of our members collected photos of interesting birds. What did we do with those?

Krokbragd Book Update

It has been 4 months since the release of my book ‘Krokbragd - How to Design & Weave’. To date, over 1500 copies have been purchased. I am overwhelmed by the book’s reception around the world and the many wonderful reviews it has received in such a variety of venues. To each of you who have purchased the book and especially to those who have recommended it, I offer my sincerest gratitude.

At this point, some housekeeping is in order.

The Yarn Crawl

A yarn crawl is the fiber arts version of a pub crawl where you have the opportunity to experience a variety of local yarn shops in a geographic area.

Miniature Overshot Pouch

After weaving the project samples for my book, I had a bit of an 8/4 cotton warp remaining on the loom. I perused my stack of Handwoven magazines and saved project files for some inspiration and decided upon weaving a little overshot on this remnant.

Krokbragd Book Sneak Peek

Although the postings here have been a bit quiet, I’m busy behind the scenes working on ‘Krokbragd: How to Design & Weave’. Many of you have inquired about the progress of the book, so I thought I’d give an update and share some sneak peeks.
