Birthdayboy, close your eyes! April 19, 2009

Filed under: Uncategorized — onnanoamimono @ 9:47 am

For Malia’s birthday boy, who is turning 7 tomorrow but is having a big party this afternoon, I made the following item (he requested pirate-stuff):

It’s a singlet from H&M. I copied a real pirateflag (Emmanuel Wynne’s) and painted it on a piece of linen. I outlined the paint with stitches with fosforised sewingthread, can you imagine how awesome that shirt will be if it’s suddenly getting dark?

Here’s a close-up.

I hope he likes it!

Before being accused for not blogging often enough (like Malia was, haha) I just want to tell you I am still alive and crafting. But mainly designing stuff I cannot show you yet. But I will soon. Promise!

In the meantime, here’s a video. It’s not related to crafting, not at all.

It’s Mando Diao. Can’t get the song out of my head.

 

The result… March 20, 2009

of a dyeing experiment:

Handspun 2-ply white merino (thickythinny) dyes with onionskins. Goldenbrown with a touch of orange (that totally depends of how you look at it)

I just popped my first skein of handspun merino (2-ply) in a bath of onionskinsoup. I am not sure if or how this will work out, but it’s fun to experiment a little.

And now just wait…

Made the Raha Scarf from the latest book from Nancy Bush Knitted Lace of Estonia for Hennie. It was a fun pattern to knit and I love how it came out after blocking.

The yarn is GGH Merino Soft, Color 94 from Penelope Craft
