Bowls

Inspired by a link (which I will post when I find it again) sent to me by Chris (of Rawsome Coaching) I decided to crochet some bowls. I had a big skein of wool that I bought when I was in New Zealand and so I asked Tom if he would wind it into a ball for me…

…he uses a nostepinne and his hand was a blur (see this video for step-by-step instructions). This nostepinne was made by our good friends Noreen & Jim over at Crone-Findlay Creations.

I love to crochet while travelling or sitting and waiting for something. I don’t use a pattern, so each bowl is a different shape and size. Here is one bowl after crocheting…

Another one after felting in the washing machine and formed over a bowl to dry…

Since these photos, I have washed them once more and will run through a third time as I’d like to get them thicker and not showing the stitches so much….adventures in felting!

Happy Weaving, crocheting, knitting, spinning and all things fibre!

Peace Felt

I have been weaving Peace Banners for four years now and thoroughly enjoy it. It is always a collaborative event. Here is one that was completed on International Peace Day (Sept. 21) in 2007…

This year, I read about Peace Felt and decided to participate. We were given the name of a person who would send us a package and also the name of a different person to send to. The peace would be passed in a circle.

I received my beautiful Peace Felt rug in the mail from Arizona…

Of course, the cats had to check it out…

I also received some wonderful hand looms called “Wee Walnut Weavers” and a lucet – all handmade by Kristi.

I sent off my package to Maryland. I made a bag with local Salt Spring wool from the Gulf Islands Spinning Mill. It is crocheted and then felted. I call it “Serenity”.

And so the circle of peace continues…

Peace to all,
