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.
