Home Grown Greens

Project Description

What are you most proud of? Plying two strands together What advice would you give someone starting this project? Give yourself time to learn the technique. Park and drop helped me do the entire batt. I haven't gotten the hang of the long draft method - with the dropping of the spindle - even after eight hours of spinning.

What you will need

  • Stone Soup Batt from Crosspatch Creations for roving
  • a drop spindle
  • a shoe box
  • two Lantern Moon straight knitting needles
  • a knitty naughty
  • two toilet paper rolls

Q&A with knitherapy

Dru Pettibone asked:
I really adore these colours! What are you planning to make with these beauties?
knitherapy answered:
I've been working on a tunisian crochet garment which really highlights the yarn. I've used the one I made along with commercial yarns and a gift hand spun to create a large rectangle which I am transforming into a vest. I've uploaded some of the photos although I won't finish it until mid-November.
