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 […]

Grendel Diary -

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.

Swamp 1 Swamp 2 Swamp 3 The photographs were taken at Slätmossen swamp in Meiko on March 31st. I got the new Nexus 8 wheel today, and installed it to the bicycle. The cabling is a bit different, and I may have to do part of the installation a different way, but this is good enough for now. For tomorrow the weather forecast promises sunshine, 3 °C in the morning and 18 °C in the afternoon. (Posting title is from the poem In the Loop by Bob Hicok.) Posted by Juha Haataja at...

Dark The photograph was taken on December 5th. The handheld exposure was 1 second, and there is some blur, but it is not bad. It seems that cold and dry weather will continue until next weekend. That is fine, even though it would be nice to have a little bit of snow to make the landscape less dark. (Posting title is from the poem Paradise Lost: Book 12 by John Milton.)

Field 1 Field 2 Field 3 The photographs were taken on December 27th. Today I commuted by car and train, because of meetings. Tomorrow I'm planning to commute by bicycle. And I have a dentist's appointment. I hope it goes well. (Posting title is from the poem To an Isle in the Water by William Butler Yeats.) Posted by Juha Haataja at http://lightscrape.blogspot.com/

P.S. I love fashion by Linda Juhola -

Sydänsilmäfiiliksissä on todellakin otettu vastaan nämä alkukesän hellekelit – kirjaimellisesti. Saint Laurentin sydänlasit ovat ehkä yksi söpöimpiä ostoksiani koskaan, ja ilokseni niitä on tosiaan saanut käyttää ihan ennätysmäisen paljon kaikkien näiden aurinkoisten päivien aikana. Vähän melkein himottaisi hankkia ne vielä muissakin väreissä, mutta jotain rajaa sentään, ehkä.. Kesälasien ohella muutkin kesäkamat on luonnollisesti kaivettu esiin Read more The post...

Charmoury -

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...

Vähän villoja - viikinkiajan naisen arkipuku -

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 […]

Vähän villoja - viikinkiajan naisen arkipuku -

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 […]

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.. :-)...

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...

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...
