Deep Blue Sea
"Deep Blue Sea" was the challenge suggested by Carol. She will start our meeting in the garden chez Ronnie.
Carol always comes up with something completely unique. Love the colors in this scarf.
Quite and interesting mix of textures and fibers.
Claudia really picked some deep blue colors for this delightful wall hanging. Lots of yarn came from her stash. The hanging branch came from a tree knocked down in her neighborhood from one of the last storms.
The use of leno in the main portion and the care with the fringe knotting are worth special attention. Some work!!!
Ronnie chose this pattern because it looked like an anchor. Indeed it does.
As usual we were amazed by her impeccable handling of chenille. Wonderful!
Terry has been looking for a use for his hand spun and this is it. The warp is commercial bamboo. The hand spun is pre dyed fleece of blue faced Leiscter sheep.
The blue is for the sea, of course. The white is for the sea foam. And the pink . . . well the pink can be for coral.
Leila always come up with the most wonderful yarns to work with. Such a challenge.
And she does it with such flair. Some lucky person will one day have this lovely scarf.
