Brown and tan handwoven jacket in the 3/50 Loro Piana silk

2008年 2月 25日 月曜日 3:33:54 pm

Here is a jacket made from about 5 yards of 21" wide handwoven fabric. The warp, which I dyed myself (brown and tan), is the 3/50 Loro Piana silk sett at 40 ends per inch. The weft is a non-Colourmart cashmere of about the same thickness, which I dyed eggplant. The pattern is my original design, network drafted on a 4-end initial and woven on a 16-shaft Leclerc Diana computer-driven loom.

Red hat sweatshirt.

2008年 2月 25日 月曜日 2:49:24 pm

Another sweatshirt for the grumpy old women amongst us. This was knitted using 4 strands of the 1/14 boucle cashmere. I also knitted in 4 strands of the cashmere/lycra in the ribbing. Gauge achieved was 22 sts and 35 rows per 4in on size 3.75 needles. The total weight of the sweater is 429g, but that includes the cashmere/lycra, embroidery and interlining, so for a size 42, I probably used around 380g of the boucle. I find that this yarn blooms little and produces a lighter fabric than you might expect, but then, it is very soft in the first place. Lesley

Labelling...... Giving due credit to superb yarns/service - Colourmart

2008年 2月 22日 金曜日 12:58:45 pm

My introduction to Colourmart came through Liz Lovick's brilliant and well organised spinning retreat to the Orkney Islands in 2006. Richard very generously gave a supply of free yarn for us to use in our various workshops. I took a "small sample" but it took me nearly a year before I decided to use it. My only reason then was because quite a few of my friends were expecting and I was concerned that some of the fibres that I would be using in baby garments might cause an allergic reaction. I think the reason why I chose Colourmart was the "Cashmere" factor. I wanted the garment to be special and top quality and that is precisely what I get from using Richard's yarns - especially after the garment has been washed.

As I needed to obtain new labels for my handspun garments, I decided to make another labelling order for garments which I have created using Colourmart's yarns . I'm very pleased with the result. Thanks again Richard.

Another pram throw (using Colourmart's Bargain/Scrap Set)

2008年 2月 22日 金曜日 12:43:14 pm

Attached is the latest pram throw created using Richard's Bargain (or Scraps!) set yarns. This is going to the same family whose daughter received the 1st pram throw that I created last year . This time, it's for her brother and his partner who so admired the one created for their nephew. It's also their 1st child, a boy born last Saturday. I'm seeing the grandmother tomorrow a.m. (they're racing up to see their 2nd grandchild) so they'll be able to take ownership tomorrow night. I've already had another request for another one!

This is likely going to sound dumb but when Iook at the formums all I see are the questions. How do I see the replies. Then again if I can't see the replies how am I going to get the answer to this question. I read all these interesting comments and wonder what the replies where. Help

hi Nancy -

what a beautiful sweater , a great knitting job ! Would you mind sharing how many strands of the laceweight you used, the approximate length and width and how much the
finished garment weighed? This is *very* useful information for all of us, es[pecially those new to Colourmart, when trying to figure out how much yarn to order.

many thanks,

I'm new to using Colournart yarns. I couldn't resist this bright Fuchsia to knit an arran cardigan for a friend's daughter. It was wonderful to knit with. I was a bit concerned at the amount of colour it lost when I hand washed it bit it drier well and my friend is delighted with the results. Too bad I couldn't find better buttons !

After a long debate, I decided to use 65/35 cash/silk in color Dust for my SOTSII. I'm using three strands on US needle #3 . The yarn is very soft, it is a pleasure working with it. Nice stitch definition, just I have to watch it very closely not to miss one strand. I'm considering a second of this stole, but for that, I'm going to use an earthy tone, as the designer recommended.

Alpine Lace Scarf/Stole from Victorian Lace Today, using Colourmart Cash/silk

2008年 2月 10日 日曜日 3:13:19 am

Just finished this, my first project using Colourmart yarns, though I have a stash drawer entirely dedicated to your yarns Very very pleased with it. The yarn was not easy to work with, being terribly slippery, and I had to go and get some bamboo needles to accommodate. I also had troubles with plying 3 threads together to get the thickness I wanted - that and I needed a bit more twist for something that was lace on all rows. However that's my problem, not the fault of the yarn.

The end result is SO beautiful. Having washed and blocked it, it has bloomed a little - not much, but enough to please me. The garment is so light, and yet so warm... I described it as being like a warm breath on my skin.

Believe it or not, I'm giving this stole away! - but I plan on casting on immediately for something new. Whether I go for the Colourmart 100% silk, or the Colourmart 100% cashmere (both already in stash) remains to be seen.

Mystic Waters Shawl

2008年 1月 28日 月曜日 1:22:56 pm

this is the Mystic Waters shawl I made with 65/35 cash/silk lace weight blend, color light navy, if I am correct. It was nice to knit, and even nicer to wear! Very soft. The color bled quite a lot in the wash, though.

There is a similar type of pattern printed in a Japanese knitting book that is available at Lacis in Berkeley California. "Lace Knitting in the Modern Mode" book 2, The book is in Japanese but the key to the stitches is in English. If you are really interested in Niebling patterns, you could also join the NieblingLaceKnitters group on Yahoo where they have internet links to some of the old patterns as well as being very helpful in general re instructions in languages other than English. This group would be the best one to try to track down patterns you are interested in. http://groups.yahoo.com/group/NieblingLaceKnitters/

Thank you for the information. i've been looking for a Lyra pattern for a few weeks and I have yet to find one. i was hoping there was some website or store you found with a readily available supply that doesn't cost as much as a food bill. I can dream, right? lol. Perhaps I'll check the library archives next?

Thank you again!

Out of curiosity, are there any similar patterns? I understand that the third portion of lyra has a design flaw and it doesn't lay flat. I was wonderng if there's anoter designer any of you would recommend for an intricate lace pattern?

Unfortunately, "Lyra" is a pattern that is not in print at this time. In order to obtain a copy, I had to bid on E-Bay for a copy of a 20 year old Anna magazine. If you go to e-Bay and put in "Niebling" under crafts or "Lyra" it will list if there are any of those magazines currently available to bid on. The most common one is the German version but they are always very expensive and go for $70 or more. Mine is in English and was double that in price.

My "Thank-You" present for Bill

2008年 1月 19日 土曜日 4:26:25 pm

This is my thank you present to a fellow Guild member who, due to illness, wasn't able to attend any of our Guild meetings during 2007. In his 70s his condition is unlikely to improve but happily it is not terminal.

I have "him" to thank for the majority of my wooden drop and metal Takhli spindles - which he so generously gave to me. It's unlikely that we will see him at another Guild meeting and as a small gesture of thanks for all his advice, support etc., I wanted to quickly make something special for him using one of Richard's gorgeous yarns. Here I am modelling the finished product - a scarf- which I knitted on my Size 4.00mm/ 8 needles Addi Turbo needles.

I used 1 strand each of Navy and Black 65% Cashmere 35% silk lace weight yarns which were spun by Andreusset SA, in France. It has a gorgeous silky feel to it and was knitted in blocks of (1) garter stitch, (2) moss stitch and (3) (10 rows reversed blocks of stocking stitch) There was a tiny slant bias with the stocking stitch but that just made the pattern look even more effective.

The scarf took me just under 2 weeks to make and the wool knitted like a dream. I've got lots left and will be making some babywear with the balance.

I was just looking through the previous messsages and I came across your shawl. i am wondering where your pattern is from? I am a relatively new knitter, I just finished a cable hat for my mom and I'm looking for somethign lace to knit for my grandmother. I'm looking for something not too simple, that looks amazing, just like she is.

I would really appreciate any input on this subject. Any favorite lace pattern designers? Which type of yarn should i start with? Silk? Cashmere? Cashmerino? does it make a difference?

Thank you so much!
