I finished my kilim shawl. I wrote a little about it here.
The fun part was that it knit up in a cone, getting larger and larger. It involves a steak and confidence with involves trusting a sewing machine. I thought the fringe was gonna take a long time, but it didn't!
It's a big afghan of a shawl
OK, there is Spanish moss where I live. So, check this out (sorry about the commercial).
I'm not so ambitious. A little research revealed that Native American of the South and Gulf coast made good use of our local epiphyte. And ehow has directions on how to rett or process it for spinning and weaving.
Might be a good summer project for me...wonder if I need a dedicated spinning wheel just for moss? Looks messy...let me know if you'd like me to send you some!!!
