Recently I finished this sweater for a good friend. It is knitted with the wool that I spin, which is very sturdy and somewhat rustic. The pattern was also design by me for this kind of wool, while baring in mind the specification of my friend: she wanted colour.
This way of casting on the stitches is very good for a strong stretchy start. It is recommended for socks. In Portugal we knit with the yarn arround the neck. Like that, the tentions is done by looping the yarn in a finger in the right hand.
Criar é dizer algo. É uma necessidade íntima tão forte como beber ou comer.
Ver, é como respirar e fazer é dar forma para que seja visto.
Crio via pintura, texteis ou modelagem...e ser artista é mesmo a melhor maneira de se viver nesta vida.
Bio: Although I was trained as a painter, my curiosity and creativity spread within different artistic scopes, as well as a painting. I painted professionaly for several years. Animated cinema was a love that years later I could experiment with computers. This led to an M.A qualification. But my long lasting love is textiles. Mum taught me textitle production as a teenager. I seem to be traveling full cicle.
