Welcome to the Sheila's projects

   
 The scarf at the left was woven at the end of a workshop on "Collapse Weave" taken in May from Anne Field. The three photos above show a close-up of the finished scarf, the scarf before wet finishing and very close-up before finishing. The warp is wool (two weights) and the weft is wool alternating with silk lycra. The take-up was 18 % in length and 64 % in width.

Sea Silk Scarf About 2007 Allan gave me two luscious skeins of yarn made of 70% silk and 30% "seacell" (seaweed) for my birthday. But I was knitting the "endless" shawl and the yarn got set aside. Now that the shawl is finally finished I can go back to knitting smaller things. This scarf - knit from an "Elizabethan Lace" pattern took only three months of coffee breaks and TV.

After Allan's operation Sheila is on snow shovel detail.
There is about 2.5cm this time, so it's not that bad.
