Fiber Fun Complete!

Here's the completed project that I've been blogging about all week....


I used a zigzag stitch to sew the yarn down on wash-away stabilizer, making a grid by sewing eight long rows down and then the shorter rows across. I left a bit of yarn hanging off of the long ends of the stabilizer to make some fringe (not really visible in this photo). Once it was all sewn down ( it's a great way to use up thread), it went into a pan of water until all of the stabilizer dissolved. I kept rinsing it until I got all the stickiness and stiffness out.

This was very easy and fun to do and I love the result. There are so many gorgeous yarns available now and I've been very envious of my knitting friends who get to use that yarn. Well, now I can use it, too, without having to learn how to read a knitting pattern!

Very cool, and you didn't have to knit a stitch! I like that!

So pretty, light and gauzy. And all from the recycle store yarn. Well done.

Love it! I am a knitting impaired person so I think I will give this a whirl. I thought you were making a quilt! I think I will have to try that also. Love your work as always.
