I knitted some more patterns on my retro sampler. Do you remember Wieke's pattern?
For this project i use yarned , dyed by me with plantes, i told you about the yarn here.
I did not knit a lot these days because the garden needs a lot of attention.
And i dyed fabric and scarves with indigo. This summer in my village we'll have a brocante (fleamarket) for the first time and i want to be there with a stall with some handmade things......
i will show you the indigo things soon!
The fruit trees were in full bloom last week, so beautiful.

I promised you photo's of the indigo exposition in Paris. The expo was fantastic. So many different clothes, patterns from Japan, China, Africa, Inde, Central America and south america, Vietnam, laos and Thailande.
Catherine Legrand, who composed this exposition , has spent more than twenty years traveling and researching indigo; she wrote a beautiful book about her research .
To give you an impression of one of the corners, lots of shibori patterns. 'photo made by zonzon'
