Last year we were invited to knit at a charity shop ( I am a member of a S&B group ). I went there with my spinningwheel…..It is the beginning before knitting isn’t 🙂 ‘There’ I found yarn I couldn’t resist. My colour and fluffy! At home I knitted a sample and I thought it too green. So I blended it with my indigo dyed chenille. That softened the colour. Lovely! I had enough yarn and decided to knit a long cardigan!

I frequently take a look at the website of Ineke Elsinga. Visiting I noticed a pattern called ”walking waffle’ (literally translated from Dutch language’).  Wow this…I wanted to have. I like optic illusions in weaving. Buying the pattern was easy done.
The warp is as straight as it always is (we can’t change that :-)), but every weft changes 70 times and then you start with the first weft again. The waffle really walks 🙂
When I took it of my loom and washed the cloth, I was so happy. It was beautiful.

Then I had to use my pair of scissors 🙁  I warn you!!! Sewing was a hell of a job!!

Some time ago I knitted a sweater from my handspun yarn. After undoing and changing I finally was happy with the result. What about the leftover yarn? Normally you never use it.
However look….. a bag is a nice solution.  I often wear jeans and this way it became a nice combination.

I’m sorry I neglected my website for so long. The photo below explains it all.
We were so busy taking care of mother Sophy and her pups. When you click on her photo it will guide you to their website.

and then life took over….. but I won’t bother you with that!
I am back again…..
