Twist
















Back in the day of Rock and Roll Sassy did know how to twist.
Get up there and twist to the beat. Now a number of years later,
I mean who is counting, Sassy is twisting fringe with that little
gismo. It is really more difficult than one would believe. You know
the old story, rub your stomach, pat your head, and stand on one foot.

Anyway is a fun way to learn a new skill on a sunny September
Sunday. Sassy is easily pleased.

Twist one way or the other.

Sassy Goes to Town


Sassy went to town. Well, actually Sassy went to Vermont to celebrate a friend's birthday and returned home via Webs... the North Pole for knitters and weavers. Husband gifted her with a pre-birthday basket of Tencel to enhance her color experiments. See Sassy smile.

Tencel is a Lyocell fiber.  It is made by dissolving wood pulp and using jet wet spinning.  Tencel is a sustainable yarn similar to Bamboo and Rayon.  Sassy helps the environment.

Madonna Scarf




















Sassy wound a two color warp sett at 10 epi with sock
yarn and used the variegated yarn as weft. Lots of
gradual color changes... the scarf graces the styrofoam
head creating a Madonna to admire on an end of summer
Monday.

Color Your Life




















The first photo is a two ply wool sock weight warp sett at
12 ends to the inch and woven with a doubled weft. The
lime green was a fair choice but over-whelmed the colorful
warp.

In the second photo the space-dyed yarn woven as a singles weft
highlighted the color range but lacks the full body of the doubled
fabric.

Choices choices... this way, that way. Sassy is always seeking
the middle ground, the fabric with the best drape, the loveliest
color range.

Sassy has been reading _Knit the Sky_ by Lea Redmond.
Redmond has a chapter that extols knitting your moods. Hmmm.
What color or colors would you choose to express your Monday
mood?
