Let's have fun: The 12 - 18 skein project

Written by [email protected] on Feb. 19, 2014 in Dye House News, Lace Knitting, La Laine, Your Gallery

As you have probably read in our newsletter we had a lot of people asking at L'Aiguille en Fête what could be done with 12 skeins of our lace / crewel wool.

Andie is busy with her crochet hook at the moment but we thought it might be nice to throw the question open to you embroiderers, knitters and crocheters.

So what can YOU do with 12 or 18 of our 25m skeins?

For those wishing to participate and also for those that couldn't come to L'Aiguille en Fête we will make two on-line packages:

Socks from Renaissance Dyeing Yarn

Written by [email protected] on Dec. 29, 2009 in Your Gallery

Voila! Socks knitted by Polly Van Bremmel using the bluefaced Leicester - Iris, here is what she has to say about the pattern she used and the yarn.

I knitted them with a size 2.25 mm/100 cm circular (for 2 at a time). Also, when I make socks, I make ...

Written by [email protected] on Oct. 3, 2009 in Your Gallery

The Threaders of Ford Green Hall are a small group of dedicated and enthusiastic embroiderers who meet every Monday at Ford Green Hall, Stoke-on-Trent. They spend many busy hours embroidering replica bed hangings, door hangings, pillows, bed spreads and more to be displayed in this charming 17th century farmhouse.

The project leader is Pauline Mountain, she explains how the long curtain took six years to finish, starting with eight people around the big frame but falling to five due to three of the older members dying. The original design is in the V & A and is shown on the cover ...
