It looks like this is the time of necklace making.

IMG_7868.jpg

Usually it is impossible for me to do two similar pieces one after the other. I am not the type who easily repeats what has already done. But there are always exceptions and here I am having made two necklaces of the same size, yarn and style, but not the same pattern :)

IMG_7877.jpg

I think I got attracted by this unusual yarn that is a mix of linen and silk. Very interesting to touch and look at, but also very interesting (maybe a bit annoying as well if I want to be absolutely honest) to work with as it slips and does its own things, but what was mission impossible was taking decent photos. I mean the colors are so different and it is so shiny that the texture disappears. That would be a good case for a pro but the pro of the house, @fotostef, was away (lucky him! I mean editing was a torture, haha!).
I want you to know that I tried!

Shiny is the main characteristic of these necklaces and it gives them a more glamorous style. The photos really can't show their sweet colors and light feeling. Imagine that this is a light green! Aha!


And yeap, I made two, but only the day after, having already started the second one I realized that I didn't take photos of the first one. Ok, still learning how to be a blogger :))


Let's take it step by step.

This humble fork is my best helper.
And please notice the curve that I give to the yarn in every line. It is the most important trick when weaving, trust me ;)

While I am moving the pattern comes. Although I have so many ideas in my head and sketchbook, I almost never know what I am going to do. I just start weaving.

As I was coming to the end, I was wondering how the ending should be. I went for a not so minimal approach, but I like it.

Out of the frame. Front and back.

Final touch and here we are!

The beautiful jasmine agreed to be my model as the sun was setting down.


While in my little studio, yarns are everywhere around, on the loom as well, patiently waiting for their time to come :)

Till next Monday! Trying to keep the personal goal I have set, to have something ready every Monday if possible. So grateful and happy that I made it! Even if this is just the second week :))



All the pictures and the words are mine.

If you would like to know more about me this is my introduction post.

Wonderful! I didn't think that white and green would go together so nicely! 😁 Great creativity! 😀

Jasmine and I thank you for your lovely comment!
It is not hard to learn weaving, actually it is quite easy to start. Maybe I should try to show the steps in a post? The basic things someone has to know in order to start? After that you just let it flow and you decide how much more you want to learn. Maybe it's a good idea :) Everyone can weave and there is so much magic in it :)

Another beautiful finish! I know what you mean about the photos. When photographing shiny items it can be a challenge sometimes to get the lighting just right. You took these photos during the time I like to take mine as well. During the setting of the sun photos come out naturally beautiful and just right most the times. You did a good job on these especially considering you don’t usually take them.

Thanks for sharing the bending tip. This weaving craft is something I can see me trying once my hands get worn and ache to much from crocheting. But then again it seems you need a strong back to sit up straight to do this and my back already isn’t the best. 😕

Thanks for sharing another beautiful project ~

Thank you for your lovely comment!

This bending tip can make a huge difference. If you don't follow this simple step, it can be so hard to keep the lines and the edges straight (unless you are a 100 years old experienced master weaver, haha!). So simple, but precious!

Oh, shiny yarns are nice in real life, but in photos... The most difficult to photograph is woven silk, it looks like out of focus, nightmare, haha!
Sunset light is so sweet. Even hearts and thoughts get sweeter. It is a charming light :)

I would love everyone to know how to weave. It is a big part of our roots and it is magic as well. Hard for the back indeed, but you can do it for a few minutes every time, no rush :) Unless it is about weaving some monsters and some cute eyes are staring at you with anticipation :))

You’re welcome :)

Yes, I have seen this to be true. It’s something about that light provoking pleasant and sweet thoughts.

That’s a good tip, doing a little at a time and then coming back in order to go easy on the back. This is something I would definitely have to do. Lol exactly, unless I have little eyes on me anticipating their finished project :D

The necklace is lovely and I am amazed how the finishing rows are done. Weaving is still something I want to learn someday, as I like the texture of the finished fabric.
And I loooove your yarn! Is it handspun? Did you make it?

Thank you for your lovely feedback @neumannsalva!
Glad you liked the finishing rows, I wasn't very sure about them, but now I kind of love them :))
It is not handspun, I wish I had made it! It is quite impressive! Plant-based silk and linen, interesting combination :)

Yarn - (longing sigh) I really love yarn :-DDD And yours look super special and the mix of fibres is interesting too. I don’t think I ever had such a mix in my hands.

I've been blogging for over 4 years now, and I still don't remember to take photos until it's nearly too late (or sometimes is...)
