A New Blog and Class Preparation

I am changing my blog to reflect my new passion for tapestry weaving.  Knit on Regardless was my spot for sharing my fiber adventures with a focus on knitting. For the last several months tapestry weaving has grown to a major passion and I need to reflect that in my blogging.

There will be some spinning, dyeing, knitting and fiber events in the future but my emphasis has changed.  I was fortunate enough to take a class with Joan Griffin in her Charlottesville, Virginia studio.

A little prep was required.  Joan asked us to bring a warped loom, yarn for weft and some design ideas.

I dyed some Ullteppegarn by Gjestal , a fingering weight 100% two ply wool.

I used Greener Shades Dye .  My goal was to obtain multiple shades of teal for a gradient effect.

These dyes are easy to use and I have always been pleased with the results.

Here are the results along with the fabric sample that inspired my color choices.


  1. Lovely! Can't wait to see more of your tapestry weaving!

  2. Gotta go update my Feedly. Don't want to miss any posts.
