Weaving Class: The Basics. If you learn one new medium this summer, let it be how to weave. It’s one of those centuries old traditions that is both practical (in certain forms) and beautiful and can be sort of soothing to the soul. Wall hangings are a great way to cut your teeth on weaving and add instant charm to your space. This tutorial is a simple wall hanging with a few different elements you’ll need to make your own interesting piece. It’s the first part in a series I’ve developed with Elsie and Emma to share what I’ve learned through trial and error in my own experiments with weaving.

Grab a cup of coffee and settle in. I decided late one afternoon in 2013 that I wanted to teach myself how to weave. Soon after, I made a weaving that I turned into a clutch, and even took on the monster project of weaving my own 4′ x 6′ rug from strips of fabric. My first loom was the lap loom shown above. Supplies:–loom-cotton yarn for the warp. -wooden dowel rod, copper pipe, stick, etc. -tapestry needle. -shuttle. People webs: pattern: chunky circle scarf.

Tassels are Underrated | Izznit. Cactus Crochet RoundUp. Da Ilaria|airali I cactus amigurumi scuciti e senza fiori che hanno riempito l’ultima settimana di luglio (qui il post) sono partiti in tempo evitando tutti gli intoppi del ferragosto. Non posso dire che l’uncinetto sia andato in ferie ma la prossima ondata di cactus non verrà prima dell’autunno. Li adoro e mi piace realizzarli sempre diversi: cambiare i fiori, le forme, scovare nuovi filati e vasi al limite del microscopico, ma per non perdere l’entusiasmo è meglio non esagerare. Come mi è successo con le caramelle gommose, di quelle che si trovano in ogni forma e colore, che adesso non posso neanche annusare da lontano.

Non dite che non odorano perché riesco a sentirne la puzza da chilometri Meglio tornare ai cactus di lana&cotone e ai loro vasetti. Tag dei postamigurumicactuscrochetuncinetto Potrebbe interessarti anche. Crochet succulents are one of my constants and up to now have been in flux. This time I put pen to paper a small and heterogeneous collection of succulents and I feel I have stopped – at least for a while – the desire to change shapes and colors to get to the “perfect cactus”. Despite these fixed points there is to play with pots, stones and details, the variables involved are still so many!

But, for once, I am satisfied and I am even more for having seen the same feeling in the eyes of those who chose them for a very special day. Here are all the posts related to crochet cactus in 4 years of this blog. Star Lily Crochet Hexagon Pattern -Flamingo Toes. Thanks to Knit Picks for providing the yarn for today’s post!

J’ai fait sa rencontre il y a 2 ans lors du salon de L’aiguille en fête (qui aura à nouveau lieu très bientôt, nous en reparlerons). Elle exposait ses oeuvres d’art, et j’ai été totalement séduite par cette approche, à mi chemin entre l’art et la performance artistique.

Il aura fallu plus d’un an pour que je teste par moi même la technique. Ce qu’il faut en retenir : C’est très sportif, et cela peut causer rapidement des douleurs variées, il faut donc faire très attention à la posture et à l’équilibre du poids du travailLa taille de ces aiguilles peut varier entre 15 et 27mm. Rachel n’avait confié que 25mm c’était déjà très difficilement praticablePlus on tricote de fils ensemble, plus le rendu est intéressant : on peut avoir peur au début, mais il ne faut pas hésiter à tricoter 20 fils ensemble ! En rentrant de l’aiguille en fête, j’étais tombée à l’époque sur une vidéo surprenante de Rachel : Elise. Pickles - Good Morning Cowl. Jamestown Pullover : - First Fall 2015.
