folksy friday - weaving

It's been a while since I've done a Folksy Friday post, and as I'm set to do a weaving workshop this weekend I thought I might take weaving as a theme.

My own item is a herringbone tweed woven sleep pillow

Here are some treasures I found on Folksy

Wonder what I will come home with this weekend???

October Folk Fest

This month's folksy listing club is the October Folk Fest - I haven't managed to list everyday so far, but have finished off a few knitted items: my cowl of course, some fairisle style leg warmers and some fun boho fingerless mitts

Here is a selection of nice things from the folk festers today:

Autumn Basketweave Cowl

My most recent knitting project has been to design a cosy cowl for those cool autumn days.  I chose autumnal coloured yarn and included a stripe across the centre.  I decided to go for shingle stitch to create the texture, which makes for a nice basket weave effect.

Here is the finished result: the buttons are vintage bone buttons with a lovely patina

Hope you like it!  I'm offering it for sale on folksy, but if you fancy having a go at knitting it yourself, you can download the pattern for FREE :-) on Ravelry

Keep toasty...
