more blues

March 12, 2013

the pattern on the woven shibori that was gathered tightly, but not on a pole, is so much nicer

indigo 107

the above picture is before rinsing

it is very simple to weave on only 4 harnesses/shafts

indigo 111

I like the accidental vertical pattern (it runs horizontally in the picture) that has developed

indigo 110

I cut an end off the first pole-wrapped piece and over dyed it

and also dyed a small piece of my curtain/shade fabric, I plan to do some sashiko and then make a shifuku/bag

indigo 105

a short kumihimo cord using paper yarn and some silk – a drawstring for the knitted bag

      Lis – I hope you have some blue skies as well.
      Neki – nothing but grey skies and rain here, blue in any form is a relief

      Question? The stripes came from the shibori dyeing?

        Renee – shibori is when you resist the dye reaching part of the fabric. In this case pulling up the resist gathering threads (first picture) prevents the dye reaching the fabric inside the gathers.
