Here´s the latest finished piece: a merino scarf. This colour combination is one of my favourites and I think I will never get bored/over with mustard yellow and gray together.
This fringe twister is very handy small tool from Ashford. I am terrible with fringes without this so I am very grateful I came across one. In fact it makes the slow process of sorting fringes a nice task.
This baby merino wool was very pleasant to work with. And cheap. But good quality. And there´s some sock yarn in addition too. The palette with merino is often very limited to baby colours but I think I will dye some in addition to ready shades with the next project.
Now that the spring -and eventually summer- is coming I should start thinking lighter warps and perhaps even cellulose fibers. I should do that especially because I am not too fond of them, wool is my favourite by far. But as with all predjudices they do limit yourself.
And last but not the least: two very inspiring stories:
a movie on Ilse Acke´s and Jeffrey Vanhille´s work. Beautifully shot movie about true talent. I only understood a few words but I got the message.
and a documentary of a nanny/ photographer Vivian Maier. Her fragmented story was so astonishing that I think I will never forget it.
