ssal7.jpgSSAL#3: Turkish Knot

Occasionally I get the urge to spin something that has fairly low useful value - but is really fun to do! Knot yarn looks cool, it’s not too tricky and if you can’t think of anything to make out of it you can at least leave it out on prominent display somewhere for visitors to admire.

Pics for SSAL#2 are due to me by 9am tomorrow to be entered in the prize draw. SSAL#3 due Mon July 16th.

Supplies Checklist: SSAL#4 will be on spinning silk hankies and ideas for things to do with the yarn. Hankies are not expensive and are easy to mail order if you plan to take part (you can get them from Fyberspates). You will only need 1 or 2 to have a play, order a few more if you think you’d like to spin a useable amount of yarn.

    I have an idea! Make a full skein of that and knit up some mittens!

    This looks like fun! I know I never sent in my other photos….I took a long break from my computer. But in the meantime, my spinning has improved. ;-) When I can get PDFs to show up properly on my computer (DH tweaked some stuff and now none of my favourite patterns, etc., can be viewed!) I will look into giving this one a try. And I like the new buttons–will have to add one to my blog! :-)

    Ah! I’m an idiot….there was a pop-up window hiding from me. Now that I’ve clicked that off, I can see everything again. So now I’ve seen the note about this being tricky for spindlers. Well, I’ll see if I can give it a go later and let you know! ;-)
