17 May: More knitting and weaving

This neckwarmer is knitted in a stitch shown to me by a fellow Guild member - but her instructions were in French, and it took a while to identify the same stitch with English instructions.


The yarn is handspun and home-dyed BFL, and both stitch and yarn are very good for a thick soft yummy scarf.

Back to the inkles. These two are plain weave, but with varied yarns. The broad one is some multi-colour scraps of merino, and the narrow one is Suffolk and BFL.


Two more pick-up patterns. It's a bit annoying to find a small mistake in the weaving on practically every band, but I suppose few of us are actually perfect....

I thought there was Supposed to be a mistake in everything - oops! Something to do with religion, somewhere, I think, in that only god can make something perfect - I'd like to meet her, if she can ... !

Yes, only Allah is perfect. Mind you, there are some weavers in our Guild who come pretty close!
