Off to Oregon!

When Laia sent me a few pictures for her introduction, I was spellbound by the beautiful colors, the crisp fibers, and the meticulous crafting …

Meet Laia, who will be hosting TT22 during the month of May!

Laia lives and works in Portland, Oregon, and her two cats Westley and Rory are very generous and share their apartment with her.

And yes, Laia loves photography!

From a fiber perspective Laia is best known for her inkle and tape loom weaving, but she also knits, spins, and weaves tiny tapestry.

She added pin loom weaving during summer 2020 “because of pandemic boredom”, and since then she has made numerous projects from flower dish cloths to a flower cowl and a butterfly blanket. One of her ongoing projects is her “epic” sock scrap yarn blanket …

Coming up next … Laia plans to welcome TT22 with some yarn from Portland-based dyers …

You can follow TT22’s stay with Laia this month on Instagram (Whaledaughter), and also get inspired by some of Laia’s beautiful handicrafts on Ravelry (Saberpirate).
