A Red SAORI top…

 

Just in time for Christmas…

Lynn came by last week and we always have fun doing a show and tell (a mini SAORI Kai!). Lynn brought a fabulous new top that she made…

I loved the colours, of course, and it was so comfortable to wear that I didn’t want to give it back. Well, the next best thing was examining how she made it, and with her help and hints making one of my own!

I just happened to have this fabric that last year had been hanging in my house – now ready for some clothing 🙂

The pattern is from the Self Innovation book and is very easy to make. My fabric was narrower than the pattern called for, so I cut one length of fabric down the middle lengthwise and added it to the edge of the fabric to make it wider before beginning the construction.

The Directions – North (completed)

I have now finished the 4 Directions banners in the series. This one is North / Red.

North is elders, wisdom and also courage and endurance in facing the cold north winds…

Indeed – it is a strong colour.

The Directions – North

The fourth in my series “The Directions” is North / Red. It was interesting to gather up the yarns that I would use for this direction and realize that I didn’t have a lot of variety in the reds. Well, of course that meant I needed to go yarn shopping – not a hardship 🙂

Here is the beginning of the North banner…
