Yarn skein earrings from VariationsonaString at Etsy.
Taking out a row of crocheting: Tug gently on the end zippitty zip zip you’re done.
Taking out a row of knitting: Make a blood sacrifice to satan while parallel parking and juggling knives in an ancestral wood on a moonless night.
Knitters, I have a potentially dumb question. If a wool piece has been blocked, do you have to re-block it if you wash it? Also, any tips for making wool softer and less irritating?
I WOULDN’T REBLOCK A PIECE AFTER INITIALLY BLOCKING. MY FAVOURITE WAY TO MAKE A PIECE SOFTER IS TO BLOCK IT WITH EUCATAN OR EVEN HANDWASH IT AFTER BLOCKING WITH THE STUFF.
Yes and no on the reblocking point, yes you will need to reshape and lie it flat. And if it’s lace you will likely need pins. Softer I agree ^^
I picked up my drop spindle again. And omg this is not as convenient as my wheel. But it is fun.
Taught a friend to spin today. Her slubby pretty yarn is beautiful. I miss my bulky yarns. I love watching someone spin for the first time, its so nice to be reminded that there’s all sorts of “perfect” yarn.
One full. Now to ply.
Knitting away at my trilobite hat.
Think that’s enough wool? Jacob bumps totaling out to about 8 ounces. I have another 2 pounds to spin up. All for a friend on commission woohoo.
