I am one of those fiber artists that has many projects going at once.  The good thing is that I don’t get bored doing just one or two things.  I also don’t have as many problems with my hands and wrists due to repetitive motion.  Typically I switch between knitting projects on different size needles, quilting, applique, weaving, spinning, tatting and crochet.

The downside is that sometimes a long while passes before I finish anything.  But this week I am getting dangerously close to finishing a knitted sweater and a quilt.  I should have the sweater assembled and ready for blocking by the weekend.,  All the quilt needs is for me to break out the sewing machine and sew on the binding which is already cut.

It seems like a long time since I have finished a project and to have two in the home stretch feels really good!  Now that just leaves the tatting practice, appliqued wall hanging, 2 pairs of knitted socks,scarf,  queen size quilt top, woven table runner and two kinds of hand spun yarn I also have in process.  And needless to say my stash and list of future projects will fill my days for some time to come.  I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Weaving With Cats

I'm a longtime weaver who likes to weave fabric for clothing. More recently, I learned how to to knit, spin yarn, dye, felt, bead & more. My spiral motif rigid heddle Mermaid Scarf appeared on the cover of the Nov/Dec 2015 issue of Handwoven magazine. I invented the freeform overshot weaving technique with which I wove my Mermaid Scarf. I sell weaving patterns and instructional booklets in my Etsy shop. Visit my Facebook page Lisa Rayner Handwovens. Join my Facebook group Weave Along With Lisa Rayner for weaving instruction and inspiration. You'll also find Lisa Rayner Handwovens on Tumblr, Twitter and Instagram. I like complex patterns, hand dyed yarns, high quality fibers and customers who want me to make them something special. I am not a production weaver. All items are custom made.
