Welcome To My blog--my name is Barb and I am a weaver in a small town in Wisconsin called Dell. Actually it is more of a place than a town but I love living in the middle of nowhere. I am a weaver and my studio name is"COULD HAVE BEEN A PIANO" I always said I was going to learn how to play the piano, but as luck would have it I met a wonderful group of women weavers and was hooked. I have been weaving for three years or so but have been addicted to fiber since I started knitting when I was about 10. I still love to knit and do some spinning and dying as well. I love natural fiber and texture. I like to use thrift store finds and use my imagination.
This shawl is knit as a sample for my friend Angie. She dyes a lot of yarn for a sheep and wool festival in the fall and thought it would be fun to have some samples. It was fun to knit, a little odd in how it was constructed but I think it turned out fine. It is about 100 here today so needless to say I won;t be wearing it soon.
