In this strange locked-down world, the one thing I can always count on is the Zen of String…
This really has been a strange year, hasn’t it? As a truly dedicated introvert and a serious homebody I have gotten the feeling that the world has joined me in my lifestyle rather than I have changed very much. Still, even an introvert needs some company, and I really miss hugging my elder family members…
The one thing I can always count on is string. My city has been in a very serious and total lock-down for the last month and I have been knitting up a storm. I am still knitting socks and they have gotten fancy lately! The pair I am working on now is pair number 35 I think, so they should be less vanilla by now:-)
I blistered my fingers pin-loom weaving but it was hella fun!
Pin Loom Weaving Class
Yesterday I went to a fun class at Wolsley Wool, my local independent yarn store. Kari taught us how to weave on a pin loom. I had flirted with the idea of doing pin loom weaving before, and the Schacht Zoom Loom is exactly the kind of small loom that tempts me the most, but I could never justify the cost and I never ran into a second-hand one.
So when I saw a workshop offered, including a handmade pin loom, taught by the delightful Kari, I jumped at it.
