Sanna's Bag

“I never seem to have what I need when I need it. I’m going to make a belt-bag that’s bigger on the inside than on the outside, and just carry everything with me.”

A strong scarf


This scarf is knitted with silk, mordanted with iron and dyed with indigo. The iron gives the indigo that grey-green cast. It's a simple garter-stitch mitered triangle, and along the edges I have sewn obsidian and jasper beads, with ocasional copper-colored swirly beads. It just seems like a scarf for a strong, handsome woman. Even stronger and more handsome than me. And there's another green silk scarf 10 inches by four feet of seed stitch, with no beads. Suitable for a man or a woman, but a bit boring. Photo tomorrow.

Thank you all so much for your kind words. They really, really help!

    Did you get to play with the dyes and mordants yourself? You lucky girl!

    Wow--that IS a strong scarf... not for me--I am too lilac blossom for that oak and granite masterpiece!

    I like the green cast to it. It's a lovely color! Your fiber talents seem to have no end.
