In this episode: Spindles! Drop, supported and those of unusual size; a suitcase full of Estonian wool, projects old and new, and Today’s sweater. Third time really is the charm. Pick up your pointysticks, it’s finally time to cast on.
Huge thanks to Felix, (aka knitsonik) for sharing her beautiful suitcase full of wool with me, and allowing me to share it with you. To see the amazing colours from birch leaves, madder and woad on Estonian wool in all their splendour, see Felix’s post on the dye workshop. Images of Felix’s supported spindle that I so admired are here. I ordered one of my own from Ian, at IST Crafts.
My new chickens will live in an Eglu, once they arrive.
Some lovely Navaho Spindles live here.
Stephen West has a fine tutorial on garter tab construction here.
