Our Guild in CT (Nutmeg Guild) recently held a fiber challenge. We were given bags of fiber which were varied in content and color. In fact, I didn’t think they went together AT ALL– and that was the challenge–to make something from the bag of fiber. There were wools, silk, llama, synthetics and who-knows-what-else!! The colors varied from green, burgundy, tan, blue and a stark white. I blended the white with everything else to mute the colors and make heathers of all of them. I thought they would “work” better together that way. I then chose a slip-stitch sock pattern and here is my finished project. This was a wonderful way to help us to be creative with our colors and our thinking. Hope you enjoy the picture.
