Available Now: Lacy Shell Wrap

Hi folks,

It is a crazy warm day here in Kansas City. We grilled hamburgers outside for lunch. Outside! In February! In Kansas City! Yay!

And now, I’m catching up on some fiber posting. I’ve been so involved in the Annie C Designs side of things lately, that Webster Fiber Arts has been a little neglected. But I am making things, and have made things, and now I am posting one of them. This is the Lacy Shell Wrap:

I love this wrap! The colors are so rich and lovely, and the wool/silk blend feels wonderful. I used a meshy stitch for this wrap, and added some shells to give it a bit more heft.

This wrap is available now! See more photos and purchase this piece in my Etsy shop.

Until next time,
Annie

Thinking about the Ocean

Waiting on Waves Wrap | Webster Fiber Arts

Hi folks,

I ended up with both a textile design and a crochet piece that are blue-green and reminiscent of the sea. You get to see both of them right here!

Waiting on Waves is a big crocheted piece made of acrylic and nylon yarn that is nice and soft. I love these colors and the coziness of this super scarf.

Beautiful Briny Sea is a surface pattern design that is based on a drawing in my sketchbook. You can read more about it at Annie C Designs.

Until next time,

New piece: Campfire Stripe Wrap

Campfire Stripe Wrap | Webster Fiber Arts

Hi folks,

I have a big, cozy wrap to share with you today. This is the Campfire Stripe Wrap:

I used some of the remaining hand dyed yarn from my New Horizons Wrap to make this piece. Instead of going all in with the multi-colored yarn, I went with just a few rows of the hand dyed yarn and crocheted the rest in winter white. Like New Horizons, Campfire Stripe is a big wrap, and it has nice, long fringe.

See more photos and purchase Campfire Stripe in my Etsy shop.

Until next time,

Icy Blue Lacy Wrap

Icy Blue Wrap | Webster Fiber Arts

Hi folks,

When I told you about my scarf struggles last week, I mentioned that in struggling with stitches, I had come up with a plan for some other yarn in my stash. Here’s what I’ve been working on with one of those discarded stitches:

Icy Blue Lacy Wrap | Webster Fiber Arts

I have three more skeins of this yarn, so I should get a decent sized wrap out of this piece. This stitch pattern is called “Openwork” and is from The Big Book of Crochet Stitches by Jean Leinhauser and Rita Weiss. I’m going to keep chugging along with this lacy stitch, then add some kind of border—maybe something kind of fringy? I haven’t figured that part out yet.

I typically work with bulkier yarn—this Paton’s Lace Yarn is a nice change of pace for me.

Until next time,
Annie

New Piece: Metallic Mesh Wrap

Metallic Mesh Wrap | Webster Fiber Arts

Hi folks,

I have a new wrap to show you today. This is the Metallic Mesh Wrap:

Metallic Mesh Handmade Wrap | Webster Fiber Arts | Etsy

There is just a little bit of gold mixed in with the fibers in this wrap, so it isn’t overwhelmingly shiny or glittery-just a hint of the good stuff mixed in with a lot of softness. I used a huge crochet hook to make this piece, which turns stiches that are normally small and close together into these large, loose stitches and creates the meshy pattern. This is a lightweight piece.

See more photos and purchase in my Etsy shop.

Until next time,
Annie
