Finally something finished..

My new dress (or tunic) in fair isle style stranded knitting is called “Mirabel”. It has been underways for a little more than a year, but last week I finally got it done.
I like how it turned out. What do you think?:

I have drawn the different patterns myself and it was a joy knitting the garment and watch how it came along. There was no plan for the colour placement – that part I just made up as I went.

Now I have hauled out another unfinished object from the depths of a knitting basket. Also a fair isle garment, a sweater. Very traditional. This one I knit with wool yarn that I have dyed with plants and mushrooms. It wont turn out nearly as beautiful as the dress, but it will be a warm and comfy sweater for next winter.
I’ll show it when it’s done. I’m good into the second sleeve.

Nye farver.

2 af de nye farveholdninger til min monokrome palette, der er under udvikling: Blå Bæk og Lys fjeld.
Spindeprøver
Spindeprøverne (shetlandsuld, 2-trådet garn) er blevet til på min russiske Aaes-spindepind, og tvundet på den anden nye Aaes. Håndtene er fantastiske redskaber, i al deres enkelhed!! Ingen vedligeholdelse, nemme at opbevare, transportable, effektive, smukke, praktiske og relativt billige.

Her ses uldhjulene “Lys Fjeld” og “Blå Bæk” i deres helhed, begge på shetlandsuld:

Der er også for nylig blevet produceret en gul farveholdning, kaldet “Guldåre”. Den er endnu ikke fotograferet. En grøn hænger til tørre lige nu og en rød bliver farvet senere i dag. Stay tuned!!
