Yarn In A Bag — 2013

The Yarn-in-a-Bag challenge for 2013:  All participants contributed odds and ends of unwanted yarn, which were divided up into bags and redistributed.  The challenge was to create “something”–woven, felted, knitted, crocheted, braided, or knotted–from the yarns, which were mixed wool, acrylic, cotton, slubby, boucle, variegated, mohair, fuzzy “fun” yarns, metallics, and handspun yarns in odd colors, lengths, and sizes.  The results ranged from a complete knitted barnyard (by Marianne) to several tapestries (with inspiration photo of Old Harry Rocks in Dorset, GB, for Erica’s [although the  photo below is courtesy of Wikipedia, Erica had one she had taken on a visit]), hats, a jacket, scarf, a Krokbragd piece,  and several embellished baskets and bags of varying sizes.  Some “failures” were also displayed, showing the creative process at work dealing with difficult materials.  A fun time was had by all…  Our program chair and instigator of the mayhem, Bill, filled in for participants who couldn’t attend.DSCF0499 DSCF0498 DSCF0497 DSCF0496 DSCF0495 DSCF0493 DSCF0492 DSCF0491 DSCF0490 DSCF0488 DSCF0487 DSCF0486 DSCF0485 DSCF0483 DSCF0481 DSCF0480 DSCF0479 DSCF0478 DSCF0477 DSCF0476 DSCF0475 DSCF0474 DSCF0473 DSCF0472 DSCF0471 DSCF0469 DSCF0468 1304_0473 1304_0472 1304_0471 1304_0470 1304_0469 1304_0468
