Papir -- Paper

     I dag fik jeg så endelig lavet papir af det hvedegræs, jeg havde tørret og gemt fra bukkarsæben. Der blev tre ark, det første og det sidste blev nok de bedste. Det første fordi der stadig var papirmasse nok i vandet, det er det ark, der ligger på den hvide klud på fotomontagen, og det sidste ark, fordi jeg skulle bruge massen op, og derfor lavede papiret af flere lag, det er arket på den lyserøde klud.Det midterste ark en nok blevet for tyndt, og vil blive omstøbt næste gang jeg laver papir.

Today I finally made paper from the wheatgrass that I stashed when making Sweet woodruff-scented soap.I made 3 sheets, the first and the last being the best. The first because there was still enough pulp in the water, and the third because I, in an effort to use up the pulp, made a paper from several layers. The middle sheet is too thin, I guess, and will be recycled once I do this again.





     Så er der også lige blevet strikket et par tingfinderpunge mere. Denne gang med hvid pose og kulørt kant. Det synes jeg er vældig flot, og det kan godt være at den brogede må lade livet for at blive til kanter på flere hvide tingfinderpunge - eller måske bliver selve posen en anden farve, jeg er nemlig ved at løbe tør for hvidt. De røde og blå garner er noget, jeg arvede fra min svigermor for 14 år siden.

A new batch of treasure hunter pouches has come to be. This time with a coloured rim and a white bag. I like them, and am considering frogging the multicoloured one to make many rims for white pouches. Or maybe not white, but another contrasting colour, as I'm running out of white. 
The red and blue yarns are a part of the stash I inherited from my MIL 14 years ago.

  • Den blå er allerede foræret væk, og jeg tror samme skæbne vil overgå der andre. 
  • The blue is already given away, and the same will happen to the other ones, I'm sure.

  1. Uglemor,

    I have a papermaking book with recipes for making paper using all sorts of different natural fibres. Your post has inspired me. I am off to hunt down that book and actually use it. The last batch of paper I made must have been at least 15 years ago. All the equipment must be somewhere in the garage. I shall go and look!

    1. That suonds good. I hope that lots of good paper materials are growing in your surroundings. I'm just experimenting - and this was my first try, if you're not counting a supervised paper making for the children I - and the Owlets of course - participated in 6 years or so ago. Paper making is fun, and I hope to see some Australian paper soon.
