I love peacock colours ... There is no other colour that could make me lose control!

I have this local yarn, a mix of 70% Acrylic and 30% Wool and am knitting mitered squares. As to why all that synthetic for a naturally dyed fiber, is beyond my conception! I call this project "Vagabond" cause I have not yet decided of the form and/or purpose. Worst comes worse, I shall end up with an other blanket :)

I have more colour variations which are anxiously waiting to blend in ... Will share pictures as I proceed with this ultra light, very fun to knit yarn. This is the same yarn that I had used for my Himalayan Cardigan.

Marbling, paper marbling or water marbling; Ebru is the surface design of swirling colours floating on water, then taking its niche in immortality once transfered to paper.

The net is abundant with talented artists but I have chosen two for your visit : Peyami Gürel and Mahmut Peşteli ... Enjoy!

Dane Scarf FINITO!

My dear friend Tomurcuk, who is the sole inspirational source of my Yack Blanket was the first to ever admire it :) Anyone willing to give it a try, it was a very pleasant project to knit. I damped and blocked the scarf but then decided I like it better unblocked.

Thanks Jane!
