IMAG2231-1Loopweaving in green

My personal offering of green. To create a rhythm within I developed a method of working with yarn called Loopweaving, (developed 10 years ago a “how-to” guide will be published this summer – for those interested lol) . Loopweaving relaxes one while you create textures and patterns turning them into shapes and containers of all sizes and colors, cool, huh!

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed the color green.

Have a great day!

  1. I bet you could apply the loop weave to cut strips of recycled plastic bags too. Though it is a pain to cut the strips in a long continuous line (I always get that extra fold when I cut from side to side leaving the one edge to connect the strip)…I’ve tried crocheting the plastic to make doormat type rugs. I know a gal who made a sort of rain hat and a pocket book too out of recycling plastic bags.
    I have a rag rug made by one of my grandmothers…basically just braided then stitched together.

    I’d be interested in the how to.

    • I actually did try it with strips of plastic bags (I do dislike them so, for their artificially and for the incredible damage/death they cause to the living eco-sphere of our planet!) and you’re right it was very time consuming to cut into those lengths you spoke of. Still trying to come up with a better way to transform the plastic bags into a workable medium. Thanks for the interest Jules.

      • I wonder if the plastic could be shredded like sheep or other animal hair and then spun? I just read an article about a bunch of folks who actually spin and use dog hair. I know there are ribbon cutters that shred pretty fine, but you would still have to cut strips first and I’m not sure if the pull or shredding would pull the plastic too much.

        I’ve actually been crocheting a bunch of scarves this winter out of ‘garage sale’ and other odd batches of yarn. Toasty and colorful.

        • Too cool on your making scarves this winter from ‘garage sale yarn. Definitely toasty. That’s an interesting idea re: the shredding. Something to think about the “how to make it work”! πŸ™‚

          • Want one? E-mail me, I might just have one in your favorite colors!

            I made one that was mostly red and blues with a had to match and gave it to a collection for Vets – they were looking for coats, but I didn’t have any extras.

            • Thank you jules, that is very nice of you. I am very happy to say that winter has passed us by up here in the northeastern part of Washington, usa, it is staying in the 50’s-60’s right now, so scarf wearing is over thank goodness, maybe for next winter through! πŸ™‚

              • They’ll be packed up and just waiting for good homes. I’ve put some in a consignment type store, but I haven’t checked to see if they have sold. One of my scarves actually made it to an Island off of your shores…Vashon? That could just be a town on the island and not the island itself.

                Hubby sometimes travels to Washington State…we’re in SW PA and winter is a hanging on.

                • It is an islandI a great one actually with an excellent view of things! I lived in State College, PA for a few years (Penn State University) Center of the state, as you know, so am familiar with the winters there! Sorry! πŸ™‚

  2. What a wonderful collection of pictures. I don’t think you cheated with the ‘little pussy cat’ his eyes have a hint of green πŸ™‚

    • Thank you very much! And you also my friend, I hope St. Patrick’s day has been good for you so far! Green is wonderful, a ‘full of life’ color isn’t it! πŸ™‚

Thank you for your thoughts!
