Sashiko - japonská technika vyšívání/prošívání

Sashiko (čte se sašiko) pochází z Japonska, je to prošívání dvou až tří vrstev látky, které chudí lidé používali k tomu, aby využili každý kousek látky a zároveň vytvořili silnější a teplejší textilii. Při prošívání se samozřejmě snažily (vždyť to byly ženské jako my), aby to bylo nejen účelné, ale i hezké. Používaly obvykle tmavěmodré, indigem barvené látky, prošívaly bílou nití, asi proto, že barvená by byla dražší.
Dostala se mi do ruky knížka o sashiku, kterou napsala Susan Briscoe a do češtiny výborně přeložila Jana Lálová. Kurzy sashiko podle mých informací připravuje Bellus.

Pokud chcete vidět můj první pokus o sashiko, tak zde je. Myslím, že je to hrozné, vybrala jsem si hustou látku, na které se šije opravdu špatně, celé je to zkrabacené a nijak zvlášť pěkné. Ale Edison taky udělal několik tisíc pokusů, než vynalezl žárovku. Takže já to nevzdám, už mám doma kousek modré panamky, s tou budu určitě úspěšnější.

There were two reasons to start this project.
1. I wanted to make something with a lot scrap yarns I have.
2. I started new web with knitting stitches, I have to knit a lot of them, but I was sorry to leave them unused.

So I slowly work both on afghan and website :-)

I came to shop to buy something different but I fall in love with yarn in black a yellow colour. I wanted to have more of yellow colour on shoulders, because it will attract more attention to shoulders than my not so slim hips.
Sleeves are still missing :-(
