Vähän villoja - viikinkiajan naisen arkipuku -

Some pics about dyeing are now here in Flickr. I got a very beautiful olive green colour from the heather, which was cooked in an iron cauldron (about 3,5 hours cooking, yarn was in the heather bath only one hour). I counted my yarn yesterday and figured out that I got more than I actually […]

View 1 View 2 The photographs were taken on April 9th in Petikko. I didn't commute by bicycle today, using the train instead. Today would have been a great day for riding the bicycle, as it was dry and warm, up to 18 °C. For next week the weather forecast promises wet and cold weather, and there might be even snow slush.

Last week we warmed the stage for Poisonblack at Klubi, (Tampere), Rytmikorjaamo (Seinäjoki) and Virgin Oil (Helsinki). The "tour" was fun and good times were had by all. Check out the photos: Our healthy snacks at tourbus: Ugh! Mika was startled: Kari long-faced: Rockin all night long takes it's toll: Waiting for something to happen: Funny wallwriting: You shouldn't interrupt Mika's texting: We'll be warming Poisonblack once more at Klubi, Turku 17.12.2008.

I generally consider lampwork beads as my nemesis. Whether bumpy, flowery or  dotty, with foil or not, I don't really care for them much. The aesthetics and proportions  generally tend to be what I consider either unbecoming or  unworkable for myself, although to my reoccurring amaizement and delight, other people seem to be quite able not only to design with them, but also to wear them. I have to admit I've frequently and loudly complained about the bumpiness, floweriness and dottiness of...

We planned the dyeing a bit with my teacher Ellinor. I want to make an experiment with  only a small amount of yarn because of the uncertainty of the end result. So, this is my plan: 120g yarn = 100g “industrial” white woollen yarn (3 fibres) and 20g tightly hand-spunned (spinning wheel) yarn (2 fibres) […]

Actually, there isn’t so much to say about dyeing project. I mordanted both spinning wheel- and spindle-spun yarn in alum bath and dyed  warp yarns in the first bath and then weft yarns in the afterbath. This was a small loss – I should have thought before dyeing that of course more loose-spun weft will […]

Done. You can find more pictures from here. I try to write something more about the whole process a bit later. The colour is much lighter than I really wanted, but quite nice anyway. We visited today Överhogdal, which is a village here in Härjedalen. Almost 100 years ago they found pieces of a tapestry […]

INA-KNITS -

Vi är några stycken i stickgruppen som börjat syssla med växtfärgning. Förra året samlades vi några gånger och prövade, och igår var det dags igen. Vi hade bl.a. rabarberblad - en ganska svag lösning, tidigare har de gett mycket brunare färg. Björklöv gav en brungul färg. Siberisk ärtbuske hade riktigt fin klargul färg i badet, men fäste inte på garnet ordentligt. Den måste jag pröva igen, ifall vi bara hade problem med kokplattan.. Sen hade vi ännu lupin, bara blåa...

Dags för Suuri Sukkahaaste update igen. I juli skulle man sticka restgarnssockor. Inga bekymmer där, restgarner finns det ju i skåpet. Mitt problem är alltid bara att jag är så rädd att de ska ta slut innan socken är färdig - så jag laddar alltid upp med typ 250 gram till ett par sockor, som det i själva verket behövs max 60-70 till. Nåjo, till de här använde jag garn från två andra par stickade i år, och hade ett garn till på lager som jag då alltså inte behövde.. :-)...

So last century * -

So this week I was commissioned to make a costume for a photo-shoot. I'm not allowed to say who it was for as it was a personal shoot but I was hired by a set designer who has done some really interesting work including an impressive Selfridge's window. I was given an antique male doll and asked to recreate his outfit for a full grown man. The proportions of the doll/puppet are unusual so the model was given false hands and I had to adjust the pattern of his top to cater for the extra long...
