This weekend I was inspired through various means to combine two fiber arts that I love, knitting and embroidery. I hadn’t thought of embroidering knitting until I saw this post at Blue Garter several weeks ago. The images must have stayed with me. After working on a prototype for KABs this weekend (see the blue knitted object in the last post), I had a vision of a narrow cuff, complete with button, and in a flash I saw a vine weaving its way around it.
It could be a wee bit smaller, but I’m happy with it nonetheless. It was an interesting process using floss with the linen yarn stitches. I used a blunt-pointed needle, though much smaller than the tapestry needle that I normal use to weave in ends and seams. Maybe I’ll be doing more of it in the future.
In the meantime, this is going to be a week of “Handmade” for me, with a major focus on making L4 clothes out of the new book, but with some other bits in there as well. I can’t neglect my knitting!
Happy Monday to all!
