Learning to Spin & BIG Knitting @ Malcfest

Posted in Events, Textiles

I’m going to make so much yarn!!!!!!!

This was a really fun part of Malcfest for me! I got to learn how to card the fleece into lovely workable pieces to then spin into yarn. Here are a few photos from the day and my contribution to some BIG knitting.

        Ian – I’m actually surprised I’ve never spun before using one of those, I used another weird contraption once, but most of the time I’m plaited or sewn things together to make interesting yarn 🙂
        Agujas – Not entirely sure what we were knitting, as it was just the start and I was just fascinated with the broom-needles! I love a challenge. I think there was CO30sts, but I can’t be entirely sure. I know there was 5 colours in total though 🙂
