We Have A Complicated Relationship…

In this post, dedicated to a fellow weaver, Lulu of: “Lulu’s Musings: Weaving together the threads of life” we see the last of the pieces on display on this “Parels” )Pearls) day.  Weaving can be used to create a myriad of things. Clothes are probably the most obvious, but practical household objects are of course possible as well. These pot holders show me that colour can be used in the most amazing ways. Himself and I use special gloves (not mittens) for taking our stuff out of the oven so don’t use pot holders now at all, which I kind of regret after seeing these.

This colourful pattern would however make an amazing table runner though! Bright, quirky but not too crazy wild to scare off someone like me who usually sticks to plain blocks of colour in fabric. It’s not that I don’t like patterns, it’s just that I’m not really a “pattern person” and I don’t suit or like wearing just any pattern. Ok…  let’s just be honest: I’m fussy when it comes to patterns. We have a complicated relationship. Either you are a wearer of patterns or you are not. This pattern is beautiful for in the house… I live greens and blues, but the oranges, purples and yellows make each other pop, and in a way that I wouldn’t have expected or thought I liked, had I had this described to me without the visual aid of photographs. Another beautiful pattern that brings this weaving series to a close.

The weaver. Wimke, has a small business card which naturally features fabric and wooden shuttles on the front side… cool!

  1. I’ve woven this pattern many times and have used it in a variety of ways. I’ve never done it with a variety of colors and that is a very interesting effect. Thanks for thinking of me.
