Playing with Twined Knitting and Secret Ops Quilting
At Stitches West this year I took a class on Twined Knitting from author Laura Farson.
It was very different than the usual knitting method, but pretty cool, and very Scandinavian.
Maybe the brim of a hat or the cuff of a glove will have something like this going on in the future.
There is an interesting Ravelry group on twined knitting where you can learn more, if you're interested.
I really like this hat pattern called Undergrowth.
Are you planning for Mother's Day yet? If your mom knits, maybe a wood DPN holder by Knitzi would put a smile on her face. Wow, there is even a carved version in walnut.
Spare time is at a premium for me these days, but what little of it I do have is devoted to a new top secret quilting project.
It's a surprise for the person to receive it, so I'll leave it at that for now to be on the safe side.
