A fibre art scarf...





Over the weekend I went to a Quilt exhibition in Gordonton New Zealand.It was held at a gorgeous place called Woodlands...a very old homestead and the quilts were shwon all around the house, on the beds, over the mantles, on chairs etc...it was just lovely.
While I was there I went into the merchants room...there werent that many there. I purchased some fabric oil paint sticks,among other things.I bought some exotic yarn made in Nepal.I have just made this scarf, yesterday.It took me no time at all to make it.I knitted it on 9mm needles with 10 stitches. The yarn is recylcled and very heavily twisted...in amongst the yarn was little pieces of twig, plastic and paper...amazing all the way from Nepal. I also made some tassels out of silk cocoons, the top one is cut with a jaggard edge so I could fit the bottom one inside. I then embellished with thread and beads. I used bamboo fibre to come out of the bottom of the tassel. I really enjoyed making this. I hope you like it too!!
