In the Pink

There is an abundance of pink in my life right now.  My latest spinning project is another step in the quest to clean up my small lots of fiber.  This fiber has been in my bins for years and as of this week is getting spun into singles so far.


Some of the other pinks come from the numerous rhododendrons that abound this year both on our property and all over town and in the woods.  This particular rhodie once lived at my sister’s home in northern Oregon.  It was unhappy shoved in a corner of the house and they had no other home for it.  So it bravely made a 300 mile trip in the open back of a pickup truck to northern California.  Poor plant took a couple of years to recover from being wind-whipped but here she is 7 feet tall and thriving!


And here is one of my favorites……..

  1. I am such a fan of pink anymore. I started using it to reassert my femininity years ago, lol (grew up a bit tomboyish). Your singles are gorgeous!

  2. Pink has infiltrated my life too! But what can you do it just sneaks in! It is important to spin up all yarn and not to waste it but what to do with it when it is spun? Waiting for inspiration well spin up the next lot of fibre that I can’t remember where it came from maybe they will go together, now I have a box of yarn…… what can I make with this? Waiting for inspiration…. yes it’s a waiting game just go with the flow collect fibre as you feel drawn to it put it together eventually and maybe I will have something I am very pleased with (or not) ‘-)

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.
