Temari -- Hånd-bold -- Hand Ball Yarn Along

     Hvordan finder man dog den slags? Uglemor kan ikke længer huske, hvordan hun faldt over temari - måske et link fra Ginnys strikkeklub?  Hun blev i hvert fald bare nødt til at prøve det. Tønden var som altid på pletten med materialer, og Uglemor fandt:
- noget gyseligt akrylgarn, den slags, der egentligt burde smides ud, men aldrig bliver det. Det var perfekt til det indre vilkeri, hvor der går en hel del garn til, som ikke kan ses.
- noget uldent sytråd - sært ting tynd uld rullet op påen trisse. Det kan da ikke gå i maskinen. Men perfekt til den yderste, synlige bevikling.
- broderegarn i alle mulige dæmpede farver. Uglemor broderer ikke så meget, hun har gjort, og komme måske til det igen, men lige nu var det lige det, der skulle bruges til temari.
     Vejledningen her var til at forstå for absolutte nybegyndere. Der skal bare tilføjes to gode råd:
1. Hvis du stikker dig så STOP! Smerten er måske ikke noget at tale om, men blodet fra et enkelt lille nålestik kan ødelægge meget mere end man tror. Dette råd lærte Uglemor af en klog gammel bogbinder for mange år siden.
2 Maskemarkøren er opfundet. Uglemor genopfandt den til stingmarkør efter at have syet for langt et par gange.


  • Temari med hvid knappenål som stingmarkør. Den gule tråd hviler og Uglemor syr med den lilla. 
  • Temari with stitch marker. The yellow thread is resting and MotherOwl is sewing with the purple one.


How do you find these things? Well MotherOwl don't even remember which strange subjects led her to temari - Maybe Small Thing's Yarn Along ... Anyhow she just had to try it. As the barrel is always happy to spew forth treasures for any yarny project, MotherOwl found some awful yarn for the inner wrapping, that will remain hidden. One of those acrylic yarn that really are too ugly, but never get thrown out. Now here's a project to use a load of them. She found some thin woollen sewing thread? and a heap of embroidery floss in all the colours of a subdued rainbow. Just perfect.
This how to temari was the life line of MotherOwl for the first try.
But two good advices were missing.
1. If you hurt yourself on the needle then STOP! The pain might not be more than a slight nuisance, but the blood from even a tiny puncture can ruin a lot of work. MotherOwl was taught this lesson by a wise old bookbinder in her youth.
2 A stitch marker. After having continued for too far more than once, MotherOwl re-invented the stitch marker.

  1. Uglemor,

    You find so many interesting crafts I've never even heard of to try out. You are very creative!

    1. Thank you. I always have to try this and that. I also had never heard of temari. I think that following some craft-along blogs are dangereous, as it leads me to spending so much time o this kind of things.
