red and white

back to the loom - the weather has been so dark and gloomy that I needed a dose of bright colour.
this one I think I will keep - made with leftovers in tones of pink/red/orange - and white of course.
Isn't it nice when leftover yarn turns into something soft and wearable?

the last photo - a wooden mask with bright pink cheeks -  was from an exhibition on traditional wooden masks
of Krampus in Bolzano that we saw when we were there last time.
I just like the shape and colours of it - the ushers at the museum told us that some people refused to enter the rooms
where the collection of masks was on display because they found them frightening!

see the catalogue of the exhibition here

Lovely way to use up your yarn!

Why are my leftovers much more boring?? I love the mask, too. And what a gigantic catalogue!

You make me want to weave some colour : )
