Experimental Knitting

15 Feb

Today I had an hour to spare so I decided to make up a quick sample on my knitting machine. As a result of the rag rug class I attended before Christmas I have been thinking about ways in which to avoid or reduce material waste. I decided to experiment with weaving some scraps from my felt making and embroidery classes in to a plain dark grey knitted sample. I used small pieces of felt tops, embroidery threads and lengths of wool, which I dyed last year with natural dyes (such as golden rod and nettle). I thoroughly enjoyed creating this sample and plan to create a few more experimental pieces in the coming weeks so keep checking back for updates or follow my blog! Below are some images of the sample.
