Topla kapa - A Warm Hat


Na spletnem mestu Ravelry, skupnosti za pletenje, kvačkanje, dizajn, predenje, tkanje in barvanje, sem našla poziv za testno pletenje kape Sangreta hat (Galinaf Sangreta hat). Pa sem se navdušila nad vzorcem, poleg tega rada preskušam kaj novega - tokrat vzorec, kot ga še nisem delala. Malo je bilo težav, ker se moja domača volna plete drugače kot v njenih navodilih. Tako sem pač naredila eno kapo, jo pomerila na hčerini glavi, polovico sparala in naredila drugo. Ta je zdaj pravšnje oblike.
Uporabila sem volno, barvano z zelenimi orehi - rjava in z rumeno kozmejo -oranžna.  

On Ravelry, a web place for knitters, crocheters, designers, spinners, weavers and dyers I noticed a call for test knitting Sangreta hat (Galinaf's Sangreta hat).  I immediately liked the pattern; besides, I love trying new things - this time a pattern I haven't knit before. I had some problem with the gauge. My wool yarn didn't make the gauge Galina gave in her instructions. So I made the first hat, tried it on my daughter's head, frogged the top half and made another one. This one has a perfect form.
I used my wool dyed with green walnuts - brown and with yellow cosmos - orange.

Slike z razstave - Pictures from the exhibition

Tole bo bolj slikovna (pa tudi slikovita) objava. Rokodelski center Škofja Loka je na svoji strani objavil precej slik z moje razstave, pa jih delim z vami.

This is going to be a rather pictorial post(and picturesque as well :-) 

 Odprtje razstave je prijetno popestril mladi kitarist Leon Ravnikar (ki ga žal ni tu na sliki, zvoka pa tudi nismo snemali).

The live music played by the young guitarist Leon Ravnikar was a nice addition to the opening of the exhibition (it's a shame he's not in the picture, and the sound wasn't recorded either).

v torek, 4. listopada 2014, ob 18. uri

v Rokodelskem centru DUO, Mestni trg 34 v Škofji Loki

s kitaristom Leonom Ravnikom.

Izdelki Ladke Peneš so narejeni iz volne, barvane z rastlinami. Barva domačo volno jezersko-solčavskih ovc. Uporablja najrazličnejše rastline, ki jih nabira v okolju ali goji na vrtu – šentjanževko, lučnik, zlato rozgo, zelene orehe, čebulne lupine, vrtno cvetje, rabarbaro, brezo, vrbo in druge.

Poleg volnene preje in česane volne barva tudi svilo in bombaž.

Iz barvane volne ročno plete šale, kape, rokavice, nogavice, obeske in izdeluje polstene copate, torbice, nakit in različne druge izdelke.

 

Z barvami rastlin toplino poletnega sonca shrani v volno za hladne dni.

 


 
Razstava bo na ogled do 23. listopada 2014.

Prisrčno vabljeni!
 
The exhibition of my natural dyed wool and silk scarves will be held in Škofja Loka, Slovenia.

Letošnja šentjanževka - Hypericum perforatum - St. John's wort of the year

Letos sem barvala s svežo šentjanževko samo enkrat. Na vrtu sem je porezala en res velik šop, skuhala in barvala kot ponavadi s to barvilno izredno obdarjeno rožico.
Rezultat je bil - kot že ničkolikokrat - lepo presenečenje. Barve so bile izredno intenzivne. Drugo barvanje (brez čimže) je dalo privlačno vijolično, pa sem dala v lonec še eno štrenico brez čimže, in nato še eno. To so srednje tri klobke na sliki. Šele potem sem barvala spet čimžano volno. In ven ni prišla zlatorumena, ampak še vedno z zelenim nadihom (skrajno leva klobka).
Kakšne tople barve poletnega sonca na volni za mrzle zimske dni!

This year I dyed with fresh St. John's wort only once. I cut a real large bush in the garden, cooked it and proceeded to dyeing with this colour-wise extremely rich flower as usual. 
The results were - as so many times so far - a nice surprise. The colours were real intensive. The second dip (unmordanted yarn) gave an attractive violet (or is it purple in English? I never know)so I dipped another skein in the dyepot and yet another one. This are the middle three balls in the picture. Only then did I use mordanted yarn again. And what I got from the pot was not golden yellow but still had a greenish touch to it (the ball on the left).

Such warm colors of summer sun on the wool yarn for cold winter days!
