more scarves

After spending a wonderful weekend away with a visit to Tiritiri Matangi I finally did some more experiments today.
Last October I made a scarf  of alpaca, and I didn't like the colour very much. First I started to put some pearls on, but still it was not right. It looked so plain.

So I did some stitching shibori style to over dye it with a pattern

After finishing stitching I soaked it in water and then tied it

pulling

and tieing

Finally I dyed it together with another scarf, which was done with glas marbles. It is white polwarth wool this time

Now the scarves are left for drying. I can't wait to see the result!
