A journal of my adventures in the fiber arts. I've played with different wool and fibers, plus different types of weaving, knitting, spinning, felting and more. I tend to gravitate toward primitive types of fiber projects.

Green Sprang Bag
This piece is 11 inch long, 30 wraps around the board, 60 threads working. I'm using double thickness of safety string as spacers. This has about nine rows worked at top and bottom.
Using crochet hook I chain looped the middle front row and turned piece over to chain loop the other row. Then I took one of the free ends of green yarn and it out down to the middle. Pulled free end through the last chain loop of the bottom and then sewed the side using a needlepoint needle.
Both sides are sewn up. I still need to make a braid for the drawstring. The bottom did not spread as much as last time. I'm going to do this again with a tighter weave.
This went a lot faster than the last one.
Have a good day!
